It seems that black folks get a free pass on everything these days, especially when they’re celebrities. The son of basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar carved up his neighbor with a knife. Instead of rioting in outrage, the black community rallied behind Kareem’s suggestion to slap a warning label on Gone With The Wind.
Abdul-Jabbar outraged over gone with the wind
Adam Abdul-Jabbar, the 28-year-old son of the basketball legend Kareem stabbed a “long-time neighbor” 7 times. He allegedly flew into a fit of rage “over trash cans.” Nobody seemed to notice. Instead of telling America that he’s getting counseling for his maladjusted son, the elder Abdul-Jabbar is complaining that Gone With the Wind needs a warning label.
Even though Gone With the Wind is considered a “Civil War classic” and thrilled audiences for generations, Kareem wants a warning label glued directly to the disk saying it does not meet Black Lives Matter approval.
In far-left leaning Hollywood, the so called “entertainment” industry has, according to Breitbart, “begun expunging the classic movie that has been considered one of the most romantic epics in Hollywood history since its 1939 debut.” They weren’t very “woke” in the 1930’s.
It seems that back in 1930’s it was popular to portray people as they were, rather than as progressives want them to be portrayed. That doesn’t go over real well these days. After all, black folks might get the idea that picking up a knife and cutting your neighbor isn’t acceptable.
On June 16, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar took time out of his busy day bonding with his family to write an opinion article slamming civil war history. Gone With the Wind deserves a warning sticker “not just for its black stereotype, but also for glorifying ‘the Confederacy as if they were a bunch of highly principled martyrs hunkered down in holy glory instead of an entitled mob of human-trafficking murderers, rapists, and traitors trying to destroy the United States.'”
The basketball star does not like the way slavery is depicted in the movie one bit. He says it “romanticizes slavery as if it was nothing more than a workplace sitcom in which all the slaves were happy baristas at the plantation’s Starbucks.” Instead of saying she didn’t know nothin’ ’bout birthin’ babies, Prissy should have picked up a kitchen knife and attacked Scarlet O’Hara with it.
