Kraaist!! this is actually a thing!!..
I just recently mentioned to a ATSer on another thread that, Star Wars non white non male high profile
characters was any sorta P.C BS, little did I know that there was a real movement behind it, now I am not for all and any kind of drastic character
changes in traditional roles unless it is warranted, for example I agreed with those who thought changing Heimdall into a brother was unwarranted, my
take was it's a Norse saga let him be white, as I would be opposed to making Ra,Amun Isis or Ramses White or west Asian ditto for Shango and Yemanja
the Yoruba God of thunder who is somewhat like Thor..which would make a great kickassed flick of Shango vs Thor or even Zeus, but I digress Star
wars always had Black and non white kickass characters ,
Hollywood however have had a long history of filling in the blanks with characters that had nothing to do with white folks, both fictional and
Whell Pilgrim out here in da East the only good Merkhet is a Dead Merkhet
Now some will say that's back in the 50ts/60ts what could we do times have changed..err no not really this flck Attila the Hun was from a few yrs ago,
but the longest and most outrageous is the whiting of African lead characters of high civilizations or wholesale cultural and historic appropriation
through the likes of
Ancient Zimbabwe have been one big cultural misappropriation even before there was a Hollywood, with
And King Solomon's Mines by the time Hollywood got through with Black folks character real or imagined all was left was this.
Incidentally certain Greek characters should have been Blacks as they were in Greek Mythology like Medea, Cassiopeia, Andromeda and king Cepheus Of
Ethiopia but in clash of the Titans and the remake they looked like this.
And oh plueeze don't get me started on Troy where they completely Xed out king Memnon the Ethiopian and his 10,000 Ethiopian warriors to the rescue
of Troy and his uncle Priam, yes the Greeks didn't give a damn about familial ties to Ethiopians or Blacks, but us moderns sure do.
But for all my complaints which is a lot I enjoyed most of the flks above even when I know better than what's been put before me.
