There goes my weekend :( This world is so PC unlike a long time ago when the USA was a bunch of Racist people. Next thing you know it will be a "hate crime" to view any films or TV shows depicting a certain group as FUNNY. -------------COPY------------------ Fox Drops 'Charlie Chan' Film Festival Tue Jul 1, 5:47 PM ET LOS ANGELES - Charlie Chan is off the case for the Fox Movie Channel. The channel, citing respect for contemporary racial attitudes, has dropped a summer festival of movies featuring the character of the Chinese detective. The films have been condemned by Asian-American activists as presenting ethnic stereotypes and because white actors played the part of Chan in the films first produced in the 1930s. Fox Movie Channel announced its decision on its Internet site Friday, drawing complaints from some fans of the movies as well as compliments from Chan critics. In its statement, the channel said the films were made "at a time when racial sensitivities were not as they are today." The channel invited comments from viewers and said it hoped "this action will evoke discussion about the progress made in our modern, multicultural society." Fox Movie Channel was part of an effort to restore nearly two dozen early Chan films, which were produced by parent studio 20th Century Fox. Some subscribers have complained about the films, which mostly starred Warner Oland and then Sidney Toler as Chan, a spokesman for the channel said. The Organization of Chinese Americans Inc., a Washington-based civil rights advocacy group, also complained. ------------------end copy-------------
