Also whoever's on about the "PC Police," shut up. Now. Please. This is a company taking racism and insensitivity to marginalized groups seriously for once and trying to make things right. Christ, to go back to when political correctness just meant trying not to be an asshole to disadvantaged groups and hadn't been turned into a dirty word by ignorant bigots. No one's screwed us; if you really want the movie, you can get it easily and for free, not that you're missing out on THAT much by not seeing it anyway. It's decent, but it's not legendary.
Shut up now because I don't have a valid argument and would rather censor everything than deal with the issues at hand?
Much like Song and the South , the racist cartoons, a Rise of the Nation and other highly-offensive media, I'd have to disagree with this statement. There was plenty of anti-Irish, anti-German, anti-French and anti-Catholic films [my main ethnicities and background] and media out back in the day, alongside other offensive media that targeted different groups. Should it be preserved or forgotten? I argue anything of that nature should be preserved and released just because of the fact that it gives us an effective learning experience.
I'd honestly love to see Half Human even despite its controversy just like I'd love to see Song of the South. My issue is people forgetting the past and then not knowing why it was done or why it shouldn't be perpetrated.
