SJW’S Throw Tantrum And Demand Cleopatra Be Played By Black Actress

Hollywood is wanting to remake yet another movie. This time Cleopatra is their target. Yes, that Cleopatra movie. Only there is a problem. Screeching SJW harpies think that Angelina Jolie and Lady Gaga (two potential contenders for the role) are …TOO WHITE.

A senior production source at Sony confirmed: “Cleopatra was known as the Queen of the Nile, and Elizabeth Taylor firmly established herself as Hollywood’s queen in the 1963 film version.

“There’s every reason to think that whoever gets to play her this time round is going to enjoy an equally lofty perch in the motion picture industry.”

The Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton movie was not only one of the most expensive of all time, it was also the full of real-life drama and fireworks between Taylor and Burton.

However, this new version will supposedly be more of a political thriller told from a feminist perspective.

The actual Cleopatra’s history as Queen of Egypt was definitely political, but a good ruler she was not. 

Cleopatra was a feminine hero of another age, one who used her sexual wiles to seduce men, but not a terribly feminist one who knew what to do with conquered fools. She died a disgrace, committing suicide following the defeat of the forces of her mistress du jour Marc Antony — the best friend of her previous baby daddy Julius Caesar — effectively ceding the autonomous Egypt to Roman rule, all because of her weakness and ineptitude as a monarch.

Here’s another fact about Cleopatra that the harpies refuse to believe.

This historical dynamo — known for wooing Julius Caesar and Mark Antony — was an African queen, but she was descended from the Greek general Ptolemy. Ptolemy was one of Alexander the Great’s four generals who carved up the Greek empire after Alexander’s untimely death. Ptolemy ruled Egypt and established a dynasty that lasted until the Romans took over.

Yes indeed folks. Cleopatra was very very WHITE. Facts like that didn’t stop the tantrum police.

Others ranted that this was about whitewashing black history, and some offered their ideas as to who should take on the role. Not a single white woman in the bunch. When people pointed out that Rhianna is from Barbados and so, if cast, would be treating ethnicity as interchangeable …one could almost HEAR the steam emanating from the triggered snowflakes!

All the folks reacting negatively to the idea of either Lady Gaga or Angelina Jolie being cast as Cleopatra would rather Hollywood, and the entire world for that matter, be viewed through the lens of race and the color of one’s skin.

Here’s a thought. Charlize Theron is from South Africa. According to the tantrum throwing SJW’s, she’d fit the bill perfectly. Except her skin is the wrong color.

We are indeed living in stupid times.

  • For authenticity… Well, neither Jolie nor Gaga are particularly Greek.

    A suggestion – Katerina Moutsatsou. The son was watching “The Hangover” a few weeks ago, and I caught part of it (she played Eddie’s assistant).

    A real Greek actress, IMHO better looking than Elizabeth Taylor, AND the supremely important fact that she is also an SJW.

    Oh joy……………………..

    Cleopatra was very very WHITE.
    Well, probably more olive. Though given what we know of beauty standards back then, she probably whitened her skin.

    Cleopatra was of Greek decent. {sic}
    Cleopatra […] shouldn’t be portrayed by a white woman!
    So… demonstrating your logical inconsistency within a mere 160 characters is a good thing to you?

    Charlize Theron is from South Africa.
    There’s an idea!

    Now, I’m not a fan of Lady Gaga. And I think Angelina looks a bit too roughed up anymore to play the part. Are there any more Sophia Lorens out there? Someone with a nice Mediterranean look, who’s hot and a lady?
    I’d suggest Marta, but she’d have to tone down her language…. 😉

    Any Kopts reading this?

  • John Reece says:

    Ancient Egypt wasn’t black, except when the Kingdom of Kush conquered it for a century around 700 BC. Saying so is black nationalist cultural appropriation.

  • One other thing to keep in mind is that when it came to marriage the Ptolemy dynasty did adapt the Egyptian habit of “keeping it in the family” and that brother-sister unions were more the norm than the exception (Though they were very open-minded about father-daughter and mother-son relationships as well!). So it’s not as though a lot of mixing with the locals was likely to occur. ^_^

    Halle Berry….as long as she appears naked most of the time.

  • […] and speaking of change, Ol’ Robbo is chuckling this morning over a story that the SJW shrills are demanding that a black actress play Cleopatra in a retread of the T….  Well, it’s all Greek to me but I understand the Ptolemies called and want their identity […]

  • Daniel Silvan says:

    SJW’s are all about inclusion. Or maybe they are just uneducated and anti-White.

  • SFC D says:

    So. Cleopatra has to be portrayed by a black actress. When did it become a requirement to exactly match the race of a character. Hollywood constantly mixes Asian actors in various roles, as in “Crazy Rich Asians”. Nobody cared if a Korean played a Chinese character. A very talented Colombian actor will be portraying Puerto Rican Maria in a West Side Story remake, are you saying that Latinas are all interchangeable? Bryan Cranston gets vilified for playing a disabled man, when he’s clearly not. The SJW crowd owes me an explanation as to why it’s OK for actors of various shades and sexes to portray the Founding Fathers in “Hamilton”, when they were very clearly white men. Diversity trumps accuracy when it suits you? Your parents failed you.

  • Barry White says:

    Greek people were and are white(cream) -ishly skinned.
    It would be like DEMANDing that the next MLK Jr be played by a white guy (greek) or else the producers are RACISTS !
    When you call someone a racist -you’re probably the racist. (3rd grade I’m rubber you’re glue Truth)

  • Christy says:

    Insult to injury — classic Greeks were light haired with light eyes, not swarthy Mediterraneans. That is from the last 2k years of population movement.

  • Whoopie says:

    Blacks have no ancient history of their own to point to since they never developed a written language. So it’s only natural they should want to prop up their fragile egos by co-opting the history of others.

    • GWB says:

      Not entirely true. Or, at least, very debatable. (And I’m not talking Egyptian.)
      Meroitic, Ge’ez, and Tifinaghall go back to BC times, I think.
