‘Gone With The Wind’ considered to be a Hollywood classic, has been temporarily removed by streaming platform HBO Max from its library. This comes amid mass protests against racism and police brutality. The multiple Oscar-winning US Civil War epic released in 1939 remains the highest-grossing movie of all time adjusted for inflation, but its depiction of contented slaves & heroic slaveholders has garnered criticism. George Floyd died last month as a white Minneapolis officer pressed a knee into his neck for almost nine minutes. The officer has been charged with second-degree murder. Starring Hollywood icons Vivien Leigh & Clark Gable, the 1939 film, has for long been considered controversial for its depiction of black people and its overt positive view of slavery. It was again under the microscope after 12 Years A Slave screenwriter John Ridley’s op-ed appeared in the Los Angeles Times on June 9. In the article titled “Hey, HBO, Gone With the Wind romanticizes the horrors of slavery. Take it off your platform for now”, the Oscar winner argued that the film had its “own unique problem”. The recently launched streamer from WarnerMedia said the film will eventually return, along with a discussion of its historical context. Paramount Network cancelled the long-running police reality show ‘Cops’ in the wake of protests against police brutality.

About this video:

It’s Day 67 on New Zealand’s Biggest Gap Year where we’re doing 365 Days: 365 Activities in New Zealand and today we are first of all, visiting the Te Apiti Wind Farm. We drive up to Te Apiti Wind Farm near Palmerston North to see giant wind turbines at work. The Te Apiti Wind Farm is a free activity to do near Palmerston North.

After that, we drive back down the hill to Manawatu Gorge. Manawatu Gorge has a number of walks in the area and we opt for Tawa Loop Track in the Manawatu Gorge.

The forest of the Manawatu Gorge is simply stunning with ancient forests, flowing rivers and Maori sculptures along the way. There are loads of information panels along the Tawa Loop Track of the Manawatu Gorge so you can learn more about New Zealand native forests as you hike.

After an amazing hike in the Manawatu Gorge, we hit the road for our final destination tonight, Makoura Lodge.

So what do you think of the Te Apiti Wind Farm and Manawatu Gorge? Are the Te Apiti Wind Farm and Manawatu Gorge places you would stop by on a trip in New Zealand?

Synopsis: As culturally-diverse students feel trapped in failing public schools and abandoned by the system school choice offers a way out and a way up for students who have not succeeded in existing public schools. Many of the intractable problems that plague culturally diverse students are deeply rooted in the poverty, unemployment, crime, racism, and cultural differences that pervade the neighborhoods around them. Educators who work in our nation's schools represent the conscience of a society because they shape the conditions under which future generations learn about themselves and their relationships to others in the world. Educators, families and community members need to reinvigorate the language, social relations, and politics of schooling. We need to address the issues of school culture, poverty and violence. We need to look at new and future trends in education. Our goal is to achieve results. Parents, teachers and students must come together to make a difference. Ideas and people can change the course of history.

The classic work on American racism and the struggle for racial justice In Faces at the Bottom of the Well, civil rights activist and legal scholar Derrick Bell uses allegory and historical example to argue that racism is an integral and permanent part of American society. African American struggles for equality are doomed to fail so long as the majority of whites do not see their own well-being threatened by the status quo. Bell calls on African Americans to face up to this unhappy truth and abandon a misplaced faith in inevitable progress. Only then will blacks, and those whites who join with them, be in a position to create viable strategies to alleviate the burdens of racism. "Freed of the stifling rigidity of relying unthinkingly on the slogan 'we shall overcome,'" he writes, "we are impelled both to live each day more fully and to examine critically the actual effectiveness of traditional civil rights remedies."

What does diversity do? What are we doing when we use the language of diversity? Sara Ahmed offers an account of the diversity world based on interviews with diversity practitioners in higher education, as well as her own experience of doing diversity work. Diversity is an ordinary even unremarkable feature of institutional life. And yet, diversity practitioners often experience institutions as resistant to their work, as captured through their use of the metaphor of the ?brick wall.? On Being Included offers an explanation of this apparent paradox. It explores the gap between symbolic commitments to diversity and the experience of those who embody diversity. Commitments to diversity are understood as "non-performatives" that do not bring about what they name. The book provides an account of institutional whiteness and shows how racism can be obscured by the institutionalization of diversity. Diversity is used as evidence that institutions do not have a problem with racism. On Being Included offers a critique of what happens when diversity is offered as a solution. It also shows how diversity workers generate knowledge of institutions in attempting to transform them.

A PUB singer is set to be quizzed by cops tonight after he was accused of "racism" for belting out the chart hit ‘Kung Fu Fighting’ as two Chinese people walked past. Simon Ledger was arrested in a Chinese restaurant after a complaint was made to police. Simon, 34, often performs the song in Sandown, Isle of Wight. He said: "I hadn't even seen these two." Simon, who has performed on TV with Michael Barrymore, was doing a spot with a pal at the town's Driftwood Beach Bar on Sunday afternoon. All went well until he began the Carl Douglas disco classic, with its famous Chinese-sounding riff. Simon said: "We were performing Kung Fu Fighting, as we do during all our sets. I was arrested by the cops. I thought it was a joke but they were serious. They seemed pretty amazed, too, but said the law is the law and it was their duty. It's political correctness gone potty." The police have since come to their senses and dropped the charge.
