HBO removes Gone with the wind.

HBO removes Gone with the wind.




Guys, there's a cultural cleansing happening at the moment.
(watch the video, it only goes for a couple of minutes). Tell me what you think.

Should this have been done long ago or are we over reacting?
Does over reacting mean: let's just hope all this BLM stuff blows over so the world can just go back to same same.

I say fuck it, remove everything. Why should the next gen be exposed to all the movies and tv shows which have subliminal or inadvertent racism, stereotyping and other moments based on racial profiling.

But is it big brother doing the censoring for us? Fuck him too! lol.
Where do we go from here Dunno It's a brave new world we're entering.

Let's just call it Covid-1984

So everyone still has access to the movie elsewhere, just not on HBO, correct?

Just because something comes from an ugly time, or tells an ugly story, doesn't mean it isn't worthy.

You know what it's like Kit. Once the big boys go all woke, everyone else follows so they won't look like arseholes.

Didn't they try to blame some lyrics from heavy metal for turning kids into killers also!
Where will this stop Dunno

Don't get me wrong. The world does need to change. The wealth inequality gap has never been greater for so many.
America's middle class don't have 2000 bucks for a rainy day. How is that living the American dream?

I've heard they're trying to remove the Confederate flag from car races now.

But how will the drivers know they're on the final lap?

Will 12 years a slave be taken down as that also portrays black people in unacceptable roles, in a way which make GWTW look like friendly conversation between mother and daughter over some knitting.

Basically reducto ad absurdum - I fear the world has basically gone mad....finally. Brave new world? I think not.

Please, these are two very different examples. Haven't read the article, and nor am I saying I agree with the ban, but I've seen both movies. Gone With the Wind makes it sound like black people were happy servants or something which was not historically the case. That might be part of what the deal here is. Whitewashing, I think they call this.
"Our attitudes towards things like race or gender operate on two levels. First of all, we have our conscious attitudes. This is what we choose to believe. These are our stated values, which we use to direct our behavior deliberately ... But the IAT [Implicit Association Test] measures something else. It measures our second level of attitude, our racial attitude on an unconscious level - the immediate, automatic associations that tumble out before we've even had time to think. We don't deliberately choose our unconscious attitudes. And ... we may not even be aware of them. The giant computer that is our unconscious silently crunches all the data it can from the experiences we've had, the people we've met, the lessons we've learned, the books we've read, the movies we've seen, and so on, and it forms an opinion." - Malcolm Gladwell
