The Nubian Ninja reviews Gods of Egypt
Major WTF Moment. How in the hell do you make a film about Egypt and all the leading characters are British white people, except a token Negro God Thoth the God of Wisdom. Oh yes as always the few Blacks in the movie are in supporting roles.
Egypt is in Africa therefore Egyptians are Africans. Yes I do realize that many Egyptians are Arabs but in no case are they white. There are many Egyptians working at the museum and none of them have white skin, blue eyes or blond hair! Working at a museum which has an Egyptian Wing which I have been posted in or passed through on many occasions. I look at the sculptures and the canopic jars and see African features. In fact I see my face on many of the women artifacts. Yes I do know that gradually Ancient Egypt was invaded by many cultures resulting in mummy sarcophagus with Greek and/or Macedonian features but that was towards the end. The original Egyptians were Nubians!!
Hollywood what, why or how in the fuck would Egyptian gods have British accents. If you did have to pick British actors you mean to tell me you could only find one person of color to portray the many Egyptian gods. Is England, Egypt or America running out of Black or Brown people? Would you pick a Black actress to portray Boudica? Fuck No! Why? Because Queen Boudica was of British Celtic origins.
My Black & Brown Peoples! Hollywood is never going to portray Blacks accurately in movies. It’s time to rise up, make our own movies much like Indian folks have Bollywood, and support Black Directors, Producers and Film-makers otherwise this Bullshit will keep happening.
I do give the movie 3 stars for action but that’s about it. Peace out!
