Angelina Jolie "Too White" to Play Cleopatra

H/T Ghostofaflea

Here we go with the black Egyptians again!

Essence Magazine complains,

Just when we thought there weren't enough leading roles for Black women in Hollywood, they create one and give it to a White woman.

Well, when they make a movie about a black woman they'll be sure to cast an appropriate actress. Cleopatra was, of course, Greek. (Or, rather, Macedonian - a descendant of Alexander's general, Ptolemy.)
Gasp, the nerve! "She's got the perfect look?" Honestly, I don't care how full Angelina Jolie's lips are, how many African children she adopts, or how bronzed her skin will become for the film, I firmly believe this role should have gone to a Black woman.
Bit racist, but what do you expect from someone who considers Cleopatra to have been an "African Queen"? Angelina played a Macedonian in the godawful flick "Alexander" - complete with Russian accent - so seems to have some experience for the job. Needs to work on the accent though ...

Two movies about Carthaginian conqueror Hannibal Barca are in production at the moment, one starring Denzel Washington and the other, Vin Diesel. Well, historically he came from Tunisia, right? That's in Africa, right? One can envision the producers scrabbling through the drawers to find a world map and then giving up.

The fact that the Carthaginians were of Lebanese extraction adds too much confusion for the Hollywood elites and their audiences. Vin Diesel is definitely the better choice, even if the race-baiters will bitch and moan about it.

Hollywood and their followers of pathetic actors who are nothing but brainless useful idiots. The Amerikwa sheeple are been led by these scumbags and just don't have the guts to boycott them.
Brangelina "Lucky Lips" Jolie and her little kaffirs, well what can we say. Apparantly she is not of pure stock either, the result of miscegenation, as if the brickheaded husband would know that. Now the bum wants to go into politics just like the Schwarzenigger.
What state will Brad Pritt bugger up one would wonder.

Honestly the blacks have to be the most stupid bunch on the planet, their ego's so inflated when they have done nothing for the planet.

These sick things make up their own history all the time, they make up their own inventions and claim that us whites were primitive and that they took mercy on us...

I say they all come back to Africa and we leave them here!

Quite frustrating.It would be historically inaccurate to have a black actress portray Cleopatra.It is known that Egyptian Queens and Pharaohs used to paint their bodies giving them a golden sun "tan".

Just for the record, Cleopatra was a Macedonian Greek ( descendant of Ptolemy ), as the author stated, like King Leonidas was a Spartan Greek,Socrates an Athenian Greek etc etc.Not to be confused with the new Macedonian state.Many people do get confused and i don t blame them for that.I totally agree with the comment about the movie "Alexander".One of the worst of all time.Even the one with Richard Burton as Alexander was better ( still bad though )...

you're quite right, SA Greek - that might explain why she had that Russian accent!

after all, in Hollywood, Eastern European = slavic = vaguely Russian.

Even the Indigenous Carthegenians were Celts! Any honest antropologist knows that, BUT would an honest anthropologist be allowed to have any say in a Hollywood Script? No way! Hannibal was a Celt, hence most of his arm being made up of Gauls (a Nation meaning "farmer" made up of ethnic celts)! The entire concept of giving entire continents to any ethnicity bar "whites" is flawed in that it totally excludes the concept of Latitude playing a part in evolution of ethnicities.

I can guarantee you the movie would be a flop with a black actress. I never go to the movies anymore, let alone to see some PC version of a movie. My kids prefer cartoon movies these days to the PC crap being shoved down our throats by "liberal" Hollywood. It's the stupid whites keeping them cashed up. We should ban going until they stop with the brainwashing...

Halle Berry is the most famous black actress but she's getting a bit long in the tooth at 46 and, frankly, has never had much pizazz to start with.

If they're going to make a concession to duskiness the role will probably go to a still nubile Penelope Cruz who could pass for Hispanic.

Er, don't you mean "Hellenic"?

No, Hispanic, to cater to the other disadvantaged minority group in the US. Do you think Hollywood gives a stuff about historical accuracy?

Sorry Anon 20h20, my mistake! Ha Ha!

Indeed, Hollywood are so busy trying to change history to suit "the plan", that they could make Cleopatra ny damn ethnicity they chose, and the ignorant "suck-it-all-up" Western World would believe it!

Re. North America, the so-called "hispanics" may be a minority in the US, but they're the majority on the continent of North America. Similar practice underway there as happened when whites were still the majority in the RSA?
