The word jew did not come into common usage until the 1800's. It is thought that the orginal hebrews- khazars possibly came from the caucasus mountains; so they were probably lighter skin than the semites of today. Some have speculated that Moses was a pharaoh, treated the hebrews kindly and escorted them out of Egypt when they wanted their own land to settke in. We may never know the full story

SO WHAT?!? WHO CARES?!??
some people always find something to complain about and make a big deal out of NOTHING.
It's still probably going to be a good movie, no matter what the color of the actors.
Here's a nice idea, go direct your own movie. Oh, that's right, shut up.

Not sure what colour the Egyptians were at the supposed time of the Exodus (1500 BC?). Didn't Ramses have red hair? Didn't Tutankamen have European R1a Y chromosome? I saw some research where the ancient Egyptians were descended from the Guanches of the Canary islands who were white with red hair and travelled across North Africa. I think as time went on they would have mixed more with other Africans. The Copts of Egypt are supposed to be the true descendants of the ancient Egyptians so they should have cast them as Egyptians. The Nubians that conquered Egypt were probably dark but the Hyksos were white Indo Europeans that invaded the ME and Egypt. The ancient Greeks often referred to Egyptians as black though (see Herodotus) though this was about 200 bc.

how did Mel Gibson pulled off making Apocalypto with an all native American cast
