    A teaching moment was lost.

  2. There are several points that can be made here. The “PC” police really need to stop re-writing history by removing it. They pull down a statue and that figures contributions are erased? They remove a flag and the Civil War did not happen? They remove a movie from a theater and that depiction of Southern Life in that era didn’t exist? Will they remove the academy awards won from the books too? Should the Smithsonian remove Bob Mackie’s “Gone With The Window” gown from display?

    Why do the “PC” police and the Black community seem to want to erase the era from our history books? Why not celebrate how far we have come? The answer is simple. The Reverends and activists in the Black Community do not want that. They perpetuate and encourage hate and reverse discrimination. The Black community is a community of exclusion. So why shouldn’t we question motive when you do not see these very same Reverends and Leaders using fiery rhetoric when a White officer is killed by a Black Man.

    We are finding the same thing in our schools and the mascots we have had for generations. Remove them, re-write history.

    It is a crying shame that people are so closed minded and want to try to erase history. Never mind that the first black actor won an award for her part in the movie. Just erase that too. Dumb dumb dumb
