Gone With The Wind NOT pulled from HBO. It will include a caption in Politics and World Events Posted June 11 I am not black, but I find this decision ridiculous. What is racist with Gone With The Wind? It paints a picture of a certain time: when there was a slavery and the black people were indeed called the n word. Going by this logic should we forbid all medieval archives, books etc., because they are even worse? There are so many - perceived from todays viewpoint - "racist" books like The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare. Should we forbid it too? Those works of arts represented certain period of time which had a certain values and we can not go back and erase that. We should have direct sources so that we could objectively study the past. The moral is changing and thats why we have gay marriage nowadays.
