    People are mired in sin fullness. Our institutions are composed of people and thus sinful actions are executed through them.

    The only resurgence of white supremacists is in the news. They are getting attention because of the racial divisiveness encouraged by Obama.

    If people are spending their limited time and energy being upset about screenings of Gone With The Wind, does that suggest that there is rather little racism to get upset about these days? Should we take that as a good sign, of the decline of racism?

    I think people could be spending their limited time and energy over things more important than whether someone might be offended by a classic movie.

    There isn't a resurgence. That your side labels any white Republican a "white supremacist" isn't reflective of reality. Shocking, I know.
    “David Duke to Donald Trump: “@DrDavidDuke I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists.” Twitter.

    So, only people who were lynched by the KKK matter to you... BTW, there were only ~ 3,445 blacks lynched in 86 years, and there were 1,300 lynchings of whites during that same time. There is no indication that the KKK was involved in all of them. I suggest you read this Politifact article to educate yourself on your fallacious claims.
    Only 3,445 blacks lynched. Oh well, that’s alright then. How many of those were “little people”?

    No it isn't. Discrimination is discrimination. That you currently value one over the other says more about your values than mine.
    Again, how many “little people” have been lynched by the KKK?

    Memphis is the deep South???
    Yes, above Alabama, below Kentucky and next to Nth Carolina and Arkansas. In short, the Deep South!

    Memphis is almost 70% Black.
    Of course it is...the Deep South is where the black slaves were kept.

    The Orpheum Theatre has theatrical dance troupes that are comprised of predominantly black kids. It's located downtown where the majority of the residents are black. You are an ignorant foreigner commenting on matters on which you are thoroughly ignorant.
    And how many of these blacks flock to the Orpheum Theatre for its annual screenings of Gone with the Wind? Don’t tell me, your third cousin on your mother’s side is an usherette there and she says the audience is mostly black and they just love the reminders of the good-ole days.

    Among registered black male ex-felons, 71.7 percent in North Carolina and 84.2 percent in Florida are registered Democrats.
    What has Matthews voting for Obama (allegedly) got to do with anything is the point.

    You're an idiot. It was an accurate representation of the time, and it remains one of the classic films of all time. I suppose you'll want to have Roots banned next since Kunta Kinte got his foot cut off by a white man...
    Yes it’s a very good movie. But it’s inappropriate and insensitive to screen it in Memphis when it depicts 70% of the population as second-class citizens and when White Supremacy is on the rise thanks to Donald J Trump. Perhaps it’s reassuring to the 30% whites to remember the good ole days when the blacks knew their place.

    Of course they are. And Obama wasn’t even born in the USA. Trump told us so.
