Response to Proud liberal 80 (Original post)

10. The slave scenes - "Quittin' time" comes to mind - are cringeworthy.

I watched it for the first time when I was around 12, and one thing stood out to me - the treatment of slaves was not accurate.

I don't see how HBO taking this off the lineup matters one way or another. There are thousands of movies depicting racism, sexism, and a host of other bad behaviors. As for right-wingers blaming liberals, who cares? right-wingers cry and moan about every little thing. Let them spend their time starting a campaign to return GWTW to HBO. That will keep their exceedingly small minds busy.
