With the decision to remove Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words from its streaming service, Amazon is wading deep into the culture war. Censoring content focused on a sitting United States Supreme Court Justice pushes a new boundary for the retail company. Tristan Justice writes at The Federalist:
Amazon stripped a documentary on conservative Justice Clarence Thomas, the only black justice currently serving on the Supreme Court, from its streaming service during Black History Month.
“This video is currently unavailable to watch in your location,” the website reads when the title is clicked.
While this article is being written in Denver, the outage appears nationwide, also reported by Breitbart News.
Amazon appeared to drop the PBS title, “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” while still promoting a wide array of feature films under the category of Black History Month such as “All In: The Fight For Democracy,” with Stacey Abrams and two movies on Anita Hill, Thomas’ accuser of sexual misconduct who attempted to derail his confirmation. All come free to stream with a Prime membership.
The Thomas documentary released in January last year remains available to purchase on DVD. A simple search for “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” comes up short for the title however. To find it, users must include “DVD” in the search box, and the documentary will come up as the 10th result. A search for “RBG” on the other hand, will bring three documentaries on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s documentary to the top after promoting a sponsored post of her biography, “Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”
