The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of family, after they shared graphic art from here…
Mike S.: What’s so bad about it?
Genaire: Ancient Egyptians were darker skinned. Not until they started dealing with the Greeks did they start to lighten up.
Zayvier B.: But we (blacks as a culture) took Annie, rewrote her black, and cheered. But if Egyptian Gods are played by inaccurate actors, it becomes an issue? I mean, honestly the Egyptian Gods didn’t have human forms, they were always Animals or Animal heads in human bodies, so why would it matter?
Genaire: The difference being, Zayvier, most children believe that this an accurate portrayal. Every movie detailing that region is portrayed inaccurately by design. If the powers that be could they would paint the whole world white.
Rayn: I actually have never seen a movie about ancient Israel or ancient Egypt that has been portrayed accurately. You look at Israel now and you would swear that the Europeans that are currently occupying that land are native to that region.
Rayn: Zayvier, Little Orphan Annie is a work of pure fiction, based upon an almost century-old American comic strip. Ethnicity is completely irrelevant to the plot of the strip – only Annie’s status as a poor, penniless orphan progresses the story-line, along with her signature mop of curly red hair. Meanwhile, Americans aren’t actually made up of just a single ethnic group, so that further makes ethnicity irrelevant to the story. Finally, there have already been many Annie movies made throughout the decades, with pale-skinned actresses all cast as the lead, so the originally-presented skin tone of Annie is well-established.
On the other hand, Gods of Egypt is a film about ancient Egyptian culture, and more specifically, ancient Egyptian royalty, ancient Egyptian deities, and ancient Egyptian citizens. Meanwhile, the cast is predominantly filled by pale-skinned Europeans, and the mortal hero of the movie, Bek, even had his hair DYED BLONDISH, for the role:
There are many who consider this to be yet ANOTHER round of “Hollywood white-washing” of Ancient Egyptian history:
Gods of Egypt – Racial and Ethnic Cleansing:
Hollywood has consistently treated Ancient Egyptian, and also Ancient Hebrew, culture to this sort of white-washing for at least half a century.
Another recent film, Exodus: Gods and Kings, also drew criticism, for the same reasons:
Exodus: Gods and Kings – Casting Controversy:
One of Elizabeth Taylor‘s most famous movie roles was her depiction of Cleopatra, in the EPIC 1963 20th Century Fox film. It was actually the most expensive movie ever made, at the time, and almost bankrupted 20th Century Fox. It also placed Taylor in the Guiness book of World Records for the most costume changes in a single flick.
Cleopatra (1963 film):
The Ten Commandments (1956 film):
There is much more to all of this controversy surrounding the white-washing of Ancient Egyptian and Hebrew people and culture, as we must also consider the fact that the Western world, especially America, Britain and Rome (both Ancient and Catholic), have been appropriating Ancient Egyptian and Ancient Hebrew culture since their inceptions. Many see their actions as a concerted efforts on the part of these particular Cowards-that-Be – who are controlling today’s societies using very similar methods to the Ancient Egyptians – to completely rewrite history, and make themselves the descendants of these two cultures.
The Washington Monument is actually just a European recreation of an Ancient Egyptian Obelisk:
Meanwhile, the Roman Catholic church literally STOLE eight Ancient Egyptian obelisks, and one Ancient Ethiopian version, while also holding on to a great many of the Ancient Roman copy-cat versions, inspired from Ancient Egypt, and erected them all around the Vatican:
Besides this, for CENTURIES, the British Crown has held all of their coronation ceremonies upon what they claim to be the famous “Jacob’s Pillow” (also called the “Stone of Jacob,” and alternatively, the “Stone of Scone“) of the Torah (“Old Testament”), claiming themselves to have a “divine right” to subjugate and rule over humanity:
Also worth noting is the fact that some 90% of those who currently consider themselves to be ethnically “Jewish” (from “Judah,” or, more accurately, Yahudah, which represents just one of the 12 Tribes of Yasharal aka “Israel”) are not at all Semitic, but rather, of European, or more specifically, Ashkenazi, origin – meaning that they are merely converts to the faith:
Gene Study Settles Debate Over Origin of European Jews:
This is no surprise to those who study history and genetics, which dictate the undeniable truth that the original inhabitants of the “Middle East” and North Africa are brown-skinned peoples. And, this absolutely includes the Mashiach, Yahusha, (falsely called “Jesus” by these usurpers), who is erroneously and impossibly presented as a pale-skinned man!
This calculated white-washing rewrite of Ancient Egyptian and Hebrew culture is taking place for a very complex set of reasons, which I’d be happy to discuss, if any are interested. However, in the meantime, I can sum it up in a single piece of artwork, with commentary, that I created almost half a decade ago:
Genaire: Again I couldn’t have said it better, Rayn.
