How strongly do these films and series fuel racist prejudice? The death of the African American George Floyd makes waves worldwide. Many people speak out against racism and discrimination and advocate a more sensitive and politically correct treatment of black people. Decision-makers at TV stations and streaming services have now taken this to heart – and promptly removed various works from their offer!
So HBO decided to initially “Gone with the Wind” from its media library. The film is considered a classic, but the subject of slavery is said to be glossed over. The work is now to be supplemented by comments intended to convey contextual knowledge and then be part of the program again, it says loudly Hollywood reporter in a statement from the streaming provider. BBC and Netflix want to do without the “Little Britain” sketch show in the future. The reason? The white actors on the show often did so-called blackfacing by playing blacks with darkly painted faces. But police series are also criticized: The reality TV series “Cops” has been completely discontinued.
Other series, in turn, are booming. According to a study by Parrot Analytics The series “When They See Us”, which deals with five black, illegally arrested youths, was searched 147% more often in the United States than before George FloydProtests. Search interest for the “Dear White People” series even increased by 329%.
