The streaming service HBO Max has actually gotten rid of the Civil War racist fantasy film “Chosen the Wind” from its service.
A spokesperson for HBO Max told CNN the movie is “a product of its time and illustrates a few of the ethnic and racial bias that have, unfortunately, been prevalent in American society.”
” These racist depictions were incorrect then and are incorrect today, and we felt that to keep this title up without a description and a denouncement of those representations would be careless,” the representative stated.
The representative included that when the film returns to HBO Max, it “will return with a discussion of its historical context and a denunciation of those very depictions,” and will be presented “as it was originally produced, because to do otherwise would be the very same as claiming these prejudices never existed.”
” If we are to develop a more simply, fair and inclusive future, we need to initially acknowledge and comprehend our history,” the spokesperson said.
‘ Gone with the Wind’ pulled from HBO Max up until it can return with ‘historic context’
