An interview with John Wayne in 1971 where he said he 'believes in white supremacy' has resurfaced and caused a stir online.

The iconic actor who stared in classics such as True Grit and The Alamo told Playboy almost 50 years ago that 'Hollywood studios are carrying their tokenism a little too far'.

He also called Native Americans 'selfish' and said they should 'pay as much for Alcatraz as we paid them for Manhattan.'

Matt Williams, a screenwriter, tweeted excerpts of Wayne’s interview, and prompted a furious debate over how to address comments from the past.

remember the days when you could speak your mind without some mob of snowflakes wetting their panties. It's only taken them 41 years to dig this up. I wonder if it will affect the Duke getting any more roles.

as to the homophobic comments weren't there rumours that Wayne rode side saddle himself????

Its history after all though mate and clearly he had poor views for the time

I take into account that it was for the time, but very much appaling his views were, which to me was born from the views he was brought up to into that time

Not sure if he batted the other way, but they say those most anti-homosexual are those most in denial

Recently read about someone who had a conversion clinic, who has now admitted to being gay

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jan/25/david-matheson-former-gay-conversion-therapy-advocate-comes-out

This to me shows self denial of who they are and why some of the most ardent anti-homosexuality people tend to be homosexual. They simple cannot come to terms that they are gay. Which by their stupidity are making problems for the homosexual community. When they should be embracing who they are. Its society that has driven this again and more so with people raised religiously.

not really he had pretty mainstream views for the time, that is why you should not judge history by the standards of today.

The thing is I am not judging by the standards of the day

White supremacy, has been seen for a long time as abhorant, since Nazism

Such views were formed from psuedo racial science, which had its infancy in the late 19th century

So he said some shit.
I’m guessing he doesn’t care because he’s dead.
