    USC to remove John Wayne exhibit over racist comments made decades ago

    USC’s School of Cinematic Arts will remove an exhibit dedicated to John Wayne after students called for its removal last year because of racist comments the late actor made in a 1971 Playboy magazine interview, the school announced Friday.

    In December, the school said it would not remove the exhibit and instead create a space exploring the American West, according the Daily Trojan. A few months before, students protested the Wayne exhibit, stating that by keeping it, the school was “endorsing white supremacy.” Wayne attended USC in the late 1920s, where he played football.

          Would get my vote.

          Shit, John Wayne may be the most non-racist MF'r ever, (Behind Trump of course), he played Ghengis Kahn in yellow face. See? He loved everyone.

              Didn't need another reason to like John Wayne, but thank you for giving me one.

                Remember folks. The punishment for speaking the truth is exile.

                    What’s the point of that question? Why not pull another one out of your ass like, “Is he really John Wayne?”

                        watching the Danny Trejo Inmate #1 and he names john Wayne as one of his idols as a kid. should be interesting to see if he backs away from that

                          The point is he was an actor.He played hero's but was not one in real life. He doesn't deserve a statue any more than Mel Brooks......I do agree pulling down his statue is stupid

                            He went to USC dumbass. Has nothing to do with “hero”.
