HBO Takes Away Movie – level 1

16-06-2020 07:00

HBO Max is taking away a movie from its library. The movie is called “Gone with the Wind”. The movie is a love story. The story takes place during the Civil War in the USA. Slaves are in the movie.

Most people know this movie. It is an important movie. However, many people do not like it.

The movie shows racism. HBO Max plans to put the movie back in the library. However, HBO wants to add some information about history to the movie.

People must understand history better. HBO says that people must understand that racism in the movie is wrong. They must understand that racism today is wrong, too.

Difficult words: slave (a person who belongs to somebody else and he must do everything that the other person wants), racism (when somebody does not like people who look different or have a different skin color), add (to write or say more information).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
