This is true:
"If we judged all the great film stars by the standards of our time, few people would survive the purge. Laurence Olivier, for example, is widely regarded as one of the greatest actors of all time. But should he be un-personed for his use of blackface, for instance?
Wayne was one of the most iconic actors of the 20th century. It is hard to imagine how a school of cinematic arts could not give some kind of nod towards the hero of so many Westerns."
Sad times we live in.
Sad times indeed Kevin. I liked some of the comments attached to the article:
“But if this important museum no longer feels able to convincingly present all sides of this notable American cultural icon to the public, then perhaps it should simply abandon its educational role altogether, and become just another peddler of Marxisante propaganda, like so many of our cultural institutions.“
“Madness. Utter, barking, howling madness.“
This attitude has been building for some time in our schools.
Schools are no longer a place where ideas can be exchanged and respectfully discussed.
They have simply become placed of indoctrination and manipulation.Tbone
