I saw someone on my facebook all pissed off because they cast Gal Gadot as Cleopatra. They are saying that a black person should be playing the role. This makes no sense to me, Cleopatra was mostly greek with some Persian and Syrian ancestry. So when it comes down to it Gal most likely is not far off from what she looks like. 

 

But I saw tons of comments to the post agreeing that they should not have cast Gal in the role.  

 

Am I crazy or is this a stupid thing to get mad about?

I do not think someone that signs their posts like it is still 1995 gets to make a comment like that.

Skin color may be similar, but by all accounts she’s wasn’t some knockout like gal, she just knew how to use her power and sexuality before other women did.

You are correct, Jay.  She is in the line of greek and macdeon rulers.  She probably had redish hair. She was zero percent african.

One of the stated goals of the left is to eliminate "whiteness," which includes deemphasizing "the primacy of Western (Greek, Roman) tradition/history.

Most of the accounts of her come from well after her death. The few accounts that are contemporary or close to her life describe her as a woman of average physical looks, but a great deal of charisma.

 

But then one Arab writer described Gadot as "bland looking," so maybe she's a good choice.

She was one of the people complaining with her “imagine” bullshit. I don’t really feel bad that it came back on her. 
 

that said, I think she is a beautiful woman and a fine actress. She did great in Wonder Woman.

I don't understand how people are so dumb these days to believe everyone in Africa is black. 

I guess Ptolemy was black too, and Achilles. Thats called a lack of education.

Well, they need to give up a lot of shit. Considering they are benefiting from a huge portion of what the deem as white culture. 

I wonder if they can explain what they want to take its place?

Serious question Mark

Do you actually type out Mark after every post or do you have some kind of signature app on your phone?
