Hot Topic Race Themes in Films and TV
TV show Cops was cancelled. Gone With the Wind has been pulled off HBO Max temporarily so they can digitally add a disclaimer* re/context, then they’ll put it back. No content will be changed. White people on your fb feed have had an aneurism and probably said dumb things like Gone America With the Wind which doesn’t even make sense. Sunny drags Megyn Kelly. Joy explains the obvious difference between a fictional film based on a fictional book of its era vs Cops which is real time right now. Meghan tweeted and said things. Whoopi says more things, and brings up cartoons as well.
*The disclaimer is similar to what Warner Bros added to their Looney Tunes cartoon catalog.
