Afro-mythologist race hustlers demand Hollywood turn Cleopatra black.


Anthropologists classify the historical Egyptians as “North African Caucasoid.” Prior to the Muslim invasion of North Africa, and the start of the Muslim controlled Negro slave trade, very few members of the Negro race ever lived in North Africa.

The Egyptian ruler Cleopatra, was an ethnic Greek. Part of the Greek aristocracy that ruled Egypt at that time.

She hasn’t even been officially confirmed as having the role, but Angelina Jolie is already receiving criticism over her possible portrayal of the legendary Queen of the Nile.

Jolie, who turned 35 last week, is caught up in a racially charged debate over whether the role should have been played by a black woman.

The Egyptian royal was most famously portrayed by Elizabeth Taylor in 1963.

The new film’s producer, Scott Rudin, previously told USA Today the role is being developed with Angelina in mind as she has ‘the perfect look’.

But this statement has angered members of the African American community.

An Essence Magazine online story asks, ‘Another White Actress to Play Cleopatra?’

‘Honestly, I don’t care how full Angelina Jolie’s lips are, how many African children she adopts, or how bronzed her skin will become for the film, I firmly believe this role should have gone to a black woman.’

Jolie adopted her daughter Zahara,5, from Ethiopia and gave birth to Shiloh,3, in Namibia. She also has 3 other children with partner, Brad Pitt. Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 2.

‘Were Vanessa Williams, Halle Berry and Thandie Newton unavailable for auditions that day?’ the writer continued.

‘Why does Hollywood think it’s even slightly plausible to cast white women in roles that would be more sensible to cast a black actress for? Especially when that role is an African queen.’

The film is being directed by Ocean’s 11’s Steven Soderberg, who originally planned to turn Cleopatra into a $30 million 3D epic starring Catherine-Zeta Jones and Hugh Jackman.

The casting of Joile has been backed by Pulitzer Prize winning author Stacy Schiff, who wrote the book which the film is based on, Cleopatra: A Life.

‘I think [Jolie] be perfect for it and I can see a possible Oscar in her future,’ she said. ‘Physically, she’s got the perfect look.’
