I don't believe that old tv shows and films displaying racism should be removed from public gaze. While the Don't Mention the War episode of Fawlty Towers was taken down by the BBC and then reinstated, it was nothing compared to Love Thy Neighbour or Alf Garnett.
Where does it all end? People are defacing or destroying historical statues and I don't like the destruction of our history.
I expect Hels might know about it as in Moscow there is a park full of statues of those who have fallen out of favour with the public or the Russian government for whatever reason.
Maybe that could be a solution to contentious statues in the western world, or as my preference would be, add a plaque to contentious statues to give some context.
Let's face it. You and I as people of certain ages would have been with the status quo 50 years ago, 100 years ago and 500 years ago. None of us would have marching in the streets about Black Lives Matter or even slavery. Our perhaps forgetful Prime Minister Morrison never learnt about black and Kanaka slavery in Australia? But that is no reason to not stand up for what is right now. Black, white or brindle, we are all humans and entitled to the same lives we all live.
PS I forgot about writing this and saving it for the future. It is relevant to today's post so I will post it at the same time.
