But the revolt for equal rights has gone even further. The society is obsessed with the idea that it's unpardonable to leave any remnants of the slavery, whether it's a monument dedicated to a Confederate leader or a film which somehow depicts black people ostensibly humiliated and manhandled by white ones. But what's truly unpardonable is demolishing world's cultural heritage. And if removing some monuments may be considered reasonable, such things as "Gone with the Wind" can't be just wiped off the face of the earth. There's at least one important reason for it: they represent the epoch. Films, music, paintings — all works of art carry the peculiarities of the times they were made in, no matter the epoch. If so, is there any reason to intentionally try to rewrite the history we're all aware of?
None of us knows the exact way the Black Lives Matter movement will change the reality, but it inevitably will. For now the main thing boils down to accepting that the slavery is the greatest shame of the mankind. In spite of it all, people should also accept slavery as an integral part of our history — and this is why Gone with the Wind matters too.
