Since basically every media company is creating a streaming service and dumping their old content on it, what do you think is the best way of handling media that would be considered insensitive by today's standards? Should we prefix old-timey racist media with a prefix that they were a product of their time and unacceptable by today's standards like WB did with old Looney Tunes cartoons and HBO did with Gone With the Wind? Should we just memory-hole our racist past like Disney did with Song of the South? Or should we just ignore it like we're currently doing with Mickey Rooney doing yellowface in Breakfast at Tiffany's or Mr. "The Plague" playing an Indian character in Short Circuit?
