The case shows how Apple is willing to help even where the context of the crime is controversial, namely the Black Lives Matter protests. That’s despite President #Trump and Attorney General William Barr lambasting the company for failing to help track down serious criminals while caving in to the demands of the Chinese #government.#police #usa #surveillance #crime #blacklivesmatter #technology #tracking #smartphone

‘White Lives Matter’ plane banner overshadows Premier League game between Burnley and Manchester City
As the players of Manchester City and Burnley took a knee inside an empty Etihad Stadium in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, the sound of an aircraft could be heard overhead.
It had a very different message.

All incorrect, insulting, derogatory, 'black' and heterosexual scenes (including love between Scarlett and Rhett) were replaced by homosexual and pussy-bumping.

“Gone With the Wind” zipped to the top of Amazon’s best-sellers sales chart for TV and movies, a day after WarnerMedia’s HBO Max pulled the movie for “racist depictions.”
Amazon bases its rankings on sales data. The site currently offers the 70th anniversary two-disc DVD edition of “Gone With the Wind” starting at $29.55, while Amazon Video offers the movie as a digital HD rental at $3.99 and for purchase at $9.99. (...)
Oscar-winning film “Gone With the Wind” was removed Tuesday from the HBO Max streaming service temporarily. WarnerMedia said it plans to return to the movie to the library, along with a discussion about the historical context for the 1939 movie and a “denouncement” of the movie’s racist stereotypes.
“’Gone With The Wind’ is a product of its time and depicts some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that have, unfortunately, been commonplace in American society,” an HBO Max spokesperson told Variety. “These racist depictions were wrong then and are wrong today, and we felt that to keep this title up without an explanation and a denouncement of those depictions would be irresponsible.”
“Gone With the Wind” stars Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, Hattie McDaniel and Olivia de Havilland. The film, adapted from the 1936 novel by Margaret Mitchell, is described on Amazon.com’s website as “a classic epic of the American South,” set during the Civil War and the Reconstruction era.
The movie, produced by David O. Selznick, won eight competitive Oscars including best picture, best actress for Leigh, best director for Victor Fleming and best supporting actress for McDaniel, who was the first Black person to ever win an Academy Award. The American Film Institute ranks “Gone With the Wind” as the No. 4 best American movie of all time, after “Citizen Kane,” “Casablanca,” and “The Godfather.”
America is a great country for everyone of every race who works hard and plays by the rules.
Eloquent, forceful voices like Candace Owens, Larry Elder, Brandon Tatum, Burgess Owens, and Jason Riley are speaking out against the ugliness they are seeing and hearing: the destructive lies about our beloved America.
Here's what they are saying:
- "No one -- not a single solitary person defended or excused the death of George Floyd, so why is this rioting happening? Because that is what the media wanted....BLACK AMERICA, WAKE UP. ENLIGHTEN YOURSELVES. DO NOT BE OWNED BY A MAINSTREAM MEDIA AGENDA." ~ CANDACE OWENS
- "One of the big #FakeNews narratives is that 'institutional,' 'structural' and 'systemic' racism remain a major problem in America, when, in fact, race has never been a more insignificant barrier to success in America." ~ LARRY ELDER
- "There is nothing white liberals fear more than a God fearing, educated, black man."
No my friends...there is no systemic racism in America...just Systemic "Marxist Elitism"...an EVIL that uses, abuses and discards anyone for POWER." ~ BURGESS OWENS
- "Don't let the Media fool you! The majority of Americans support the police. Do not support the destroying of their city.
The biggest problem with growing up black in America... IS not racism, police brutality, or black on black crime... It's the Mental Brainwashing." ~ BRANDON TATUM
- "Black activists and white progressives stress racism because it serves their own interests, not because it actually improves the station of blacks." ~ JASON RILEY
These voices are being drowned out on social media. They need to be heard. Today.
Butch: You okay?
Marsellus: ...Nah, man. I'm pretty fucking far from okay.

“Gone with the Wind” was pulled from HBO Max while the long-running TV show “Cops” was outright canceled, a sign that entertainment companies are re-examining the content they offer in the wake of nationwide protests for racial justice and against police brutality.
