    The University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts announced Friday that it will remove its exhibit of Hollywood legend John Wayne, citing an initiative to promote “anti-racist cultural values” following protests from students. “Conversations about systemic racism in our cultural institutions along with the recent global, civil uprising by the Black Lives Matter Movement require that we consider the role our school can play as a change maker in promoting antiracist cultural values and experiences,” Evan Hughes, the assistant dean of diversity and inclusion, said in a statement. “Therefore, it has been decided that the Wayne Exhibit will be...

    My wife Mary has a habit of disturbing my peace by reading me headlines and news stories from her phone that annoy me. Thus, I learned that Black Lives Matter domestic terrorists seek to cancel legendary American actor and icon John Wayne. Outrageously, Orange County's Democratic Party is pushing to remove Wayne's name from the county's airport. This is ironic because John Wayne played a role in my becoming renowned, loved, and hated for proclaiming myself an "Unhyphenated American." Decades ago, I awoke to learn that I could no longer refer to myself as a black man. The decree demanded...

In a resolution issued on Friday, they are calling for John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana to revert back to its original name, Orange County Airport. “O​range County is now a diverse region far different from the time when John Wayne was chosen as namesake for the airport,”...

    Billboard-topping country music singer Lucas Hoge says his new single “John Wayne and Jesus” is a tribute to his childhood and the values that were instilled in him. Hoge filmed the video for his new single during a recent trip to Los Angeles where he performed on Hallmark's daytime talk show “Home & Family.” The single was also shot at the same Warner Bros. lot where Academy Award-winning legend John Wayne shot many of his movies. "'John Wayne and Jesus' was a thought I had been sitting on for a while. When I got together with my buddies Andy Wills...

    Critics are calling for the John Wayne Airport in Southern California to be renamed after a 1971 "Playboy" interview resurfaced this week. A Los Angeles Times opinion piece from earlier this week highlighted opinions the former movie star voiced in the interview on black people, gay people and Native Americans. Wayne, who was 63 at the time of the interview, said he believed in "white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility." He also mentioned "tests" which proved black people did not have "requisite background" to attend college. When asked which films he called "perverted," Wayne...

    “A black man should be killed if he’s messing with a white woman.” This sentiment was uttered not in 1875 but 1975 — by a man with an airport named in his honor. This brings us to the effort to strip late actor John Wayne’s name from the airport in Orange County, California. Those advocating such point to what they consider “the sheer crudeness of the actor’s feelings about gay people, black people, Native Americans, young people and liberals,” as the Los Angeles Times’ Michael Hiltzik puts it. But my opening, eyebrow-raising quotation is what’s truly shocking here. Let’s be...

  • How Did "Stagecoach" (1939) Get Past the Censors?

    One question that has intrigued me for years is HOW did the John Ford movie starring John Wayne, "Stagecoach," make it past the censors in 1939. Back in those days the Hollywood Code was strictly enforced yet "Stagecoach" clearly featured a prostitute which would have been prohibited. Even worse, she was portrayed in a sympathetic light. Yeah, I know it did not explicitly say that Dallas the Prostitute, played by Clair Trevor, was a prostitute but the movie left no doubt that was the case. Particularly revealing was the scene in Lordsville when against her objections, the naive Ringo Kid...
