One festival decides to make a change in their summer schedule, and this wailing-and-gnashing is the result.

The Triggering continues.

It says 'too many complaints'.,. Who is doing the complaining?


I think another important question to ask:

Why is the movie all of a sudden a problem now? Has'nt it been around for almost 80 years?

Like statues and road signs, erasing the past has to include film.

It's not a new issue.

'Gone With the Wind' and Hollywood's Racial Politics - The Atlantic, 1999.

GWTW has always been a controversial film.

should just ban white actors from now on

ban everything!

King Kong is next

Rocky Movies are pretty racist.... white guy beating up on black guys all the time

Death Wish movies are racist

Dirty Harry was Fascist....magnum force is OK though because he killed cops



Meh.... who cares. Let them continue to tear themselves apart and isolate themselves. Keep it up I say. Shut down Disney!

Ban Hunting...Animal genocide

Ban Surfing.... no reason just ban it. We will think of a reason later. Turtles or something

Ban underwear...its oppressive

ban Sports... offensive to losers and promotes supremacy

Ban youtube cat videos.... exploitation of cats

Yeah this is true. The left have been bitching and moaning about anything and everything they deem offensives since they first were vomited up from Hades' rectum.

I'm offended by liberals. So, when do we start removing them?

It's official, America is experiencing it's own Cultural Revolution where historical objects are deemed 'offensive' and must be destroyed.


geez....one theater, and now it's ALL OF AMERICA!!!!!!......you need to get a grip, as much as those movie protestors

Thats fine.

Let them destroy everything they don't like. When they're all done, me and My friends might decide we don't like certain things, either.

As you sow, so shall you reap. It is written.

Proves racism isn't gone with the wind in that town.

The black folks get too uppity if they show the truth.


Edit: Wait...


The historic theater in Downtown Memphis has shown the movie for decades, but this year’s event “generated numerous comments,” leading to the decision.

It says 'too many complaints'.,. Who is doing the complaining?


"Who is doing the complaining?"

Who cares?

Wrong, they would need white actors to play slaves.


Interesting little factoid.

Self deprecating white people already PAY to play slaves.

I forget what's actually called but it's like slave camp.

I still think Obama had all those years he could have brought our country together and he consistently made racial comments and took sides further dividing and encouraging blacks and whites to take stands against one another. What a horrible waste of an example of leadership and power. I do think history will not look favorably on his presidency; especially if he continues to use his after-presidency power to mobilize even further anguish between the races. So disappointing.


Very much so! He did all he could to make race relations worse, and even now won't go away and stop causing problems. What I expected from him, to be honest. He's got an agenda, and he's not finished!
