The streaming service HBO Max will be bringing back the iconic film “Gone With the Wind,” with a newly added introduction by a black scholar, as reported by Fox News.HBO received universal condemnation for their decision to pull the critically-acclaimed film from its service last week, after the film had baselessly been accused of being racist because it takes place during the Civil War. But while the film itself has returned, it now features a sort of retroactive prologue by a black professor named Jacqueline Stewart.Stewart, a far-left activist employed by the University of Chicago, had previously written an op-ed for CNN criticizing the film, entitled “Why we can’t

Too late bozos. Your goose is cooked HBO and you cannot squirm out of your decision by having some you say scholar preach to us before the film airs. Watch the film and leave the BS out!

So, I have to get lectured and scolded by some far left kook "scholar" before I can watch Gone with the Wind? Forget it, I'll just watch Weekend at Bernie's again.

Black scholar does that mean he or she graduated from high school? Why not say it was the white people from the northern states that emancipated the blacks. The slaves were sold by blacks in Africa to other black slave traders who then sold them to Americans .

The blacks were vocal communists back then? My own g g g -g pappy brought his ex-slaves with him at their light-skinned mammy selves request---devoted to ggg-gmammy in her helplessness. Their mulatto, according to census, children came with them. And they were given portions of land in his will. Family is family. And I wouldn't have slaves as would have to live with (I am an introvert) If I had had slaves I would have been waiting on them since I did so with my children rather than be assertive. Me cooking and cleaning for entire slave families would have been something. A shirttail relative in old Dominion Virginia, William Byrd used to beat his slaves after doing his dance (exercise). He lived in England part of time. He was instrumental in sending surveyors west into Appalachia ans Shenandoah valley area. If I remember right he had a big influence on the plantation era of the south. The first man who kept his indentured black people rather than released after a tenure was a black freeman. But to know all this one would have to read. Don't bother with today's swill to get the truth but read what people way back when were writing. IMO. Be your own historian? Wikipedia and subtitle slavery and servitude tells how cash crop needed to make the colony profitable and therefore permanent. If I were black, since I love being in this country, I would maybe think now as I do that while those in Europe were driven by the Lord to come here to create this country, that slavery was only way to get black masses here. The Irish were sent into slavery by Cromwell as sugar slaves, 100,000 some say and for instance. War weather and famine put others on move and maybe the need to escape a past-get a new start?

Very interesting thread. Why is there so much anger at someone who has a perspective on a classic film that people may disagree with? I read the op-ed and she seems to be sincere in her discomfort with the films romanticizing of the ante-bellum period of the South which she equates with approval of slavery. I always thought the message of the film was that the South paid a terrible price in lives and property for their lost cause defense of the indefensible immorality of slavery. The burning of Atlanta by Sherman's army was the ultimate symbol of this fall from grace to devastation and defeat. My point is the same movie can be seen as both pro and anti slavery depending on your point of view. Opinion is not truth especially regarding art.

I've seen the movie, read the book and came out still thinking racism is wrong. GWTW is, in its essence a big old love story about a feisty alpha woman who is in love with a total pajama boy who marries his cousin. She carries a big old torch for him, then meets and marries a real ALPHA man but is still pining for pajama boy. Too late, she realizes that she loves alpha man, but by then he's tired and doesn't give a damn. Oh and the South loses the war.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order on police reform in response to the tragic death of George Floyd while in the custody of a Minneapolis police officer. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) denounced the move as a cheap effort to offset “years of inflammatory rhetoric and policies.” In a statement, Schumer dismissed the executive order as a “modest” move that fails to offer anything comprehensive. “While the president has finally acknowledged the need for policing reform, one modest executive order will not make up for his years of inflammatory rhetoric and policies designed to roll back the progress

Germany says it hopes to reach two percent by 2031.“Until they pay, we’re removing our soldiers, a number of our soldiers,”

We are making this change to NJ Advance Media’s style guide to acknowledge and respect the word represents a people with shared cultures and experiences, and not a color. Black, we believe, should be used like other identifiers, such as “Asian,” “Latino” or “African American.” We also will continue to use “African American” in stories when warranted, as “African American” and “Black” aren’t always interchangeable.

It may not be a blockbuster win, but it is a win nonetheless over Democratic hopeful Joseph R. Biden. “Overall, a slim majority (51%) of likely voters thought, regardless of their political support, that President Trump would win reelection over Democratic nominee Joe Biden (43%), while 6% thought someone else would win the 2020 Presidential Election,” reports John Zogby in a new poll of 1,007 likely voters conducted June 1-2.

Three cities, all supremely liberal, represent an American descent into anarchy against which no one is standing. After New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said he wanted to slash the police budget, the New York City Council is going about cutting $1 billion from that budget, about 16%. That will inevitably cause a reduction of police presence around the city and, with equal inevitability, result in an increase in crime. In Minneapolis, where George Floyd was killed in police custody on May 25, the city council plans to disband its police force entirely. On Friday, the city council voted to replace the police with a “community-led public safety system.”
