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 turn away from Gone With the Wind.” In the article, Stewart announced that she would “provide an introduction placing the film in multiple historical contexts.” She also accused the film of featuring “expressions of white supremacy.”
The revision is one of the latest examples of the Left’s push to rewrite history, especially with regards to pop culture, following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which many have falsely claimed is indicative of “systemic racism” against African-Americans.
