US-ENTERTAINMENT-LEISURE-RETAIL-HOLLYWOOD & HIGHLAND Hollywood & Highland, the retail and theater complex that also serves as home to the annual Academy Awards, has reportedly removed the statues of large white elephants that have presided over the venue for two decades due to concerns that they are racist.
The Los Angeles Times reported that construction crews began dismantling the two white, fiberglass elephants on Thursday. The elephants were being removed along with the complex’s other Babylonian-style decor, all of which were created as an homage to D.W. Griffith’s silent movie classic Intolerance.
D.W. Griffith also directed the infamous The Birth of a Nation , which is set during the Civil War and Reconstruction, and portrays the Ku Klux Klan in a positive light. The Times described Birth of a Nation as “one of the most racist movies in Hollywood history.”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
