Cleopatra: Racism of Black Community Bites Angelina Jolie in her White A—

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleopatra_VII

 Blacks never read history,for  it would embarrass them to find out how imperfect their ancestors were.Lately they have taken over Egypt and now they want   Cleopatra , who was white, to be black. If anything she was from an in-breeding incestuous white family, for her ancestor admired the Egyptian practice of royal incest.

Her family invaded Egypt   from Greece and  they were Greek ,which meant white, with blond hair or red hair and blue , green or light hazel eyes.

The Greeks, currently living in Greece are from a different invasion. 

 However this is amusing, because Angelina is a rich race traitor , who adopts little darkies . It’s good for her to see what everyone else has to deal with.  

In fact, according to ABC News, Egyptologists insist that the legendary temptress, known for having used her beauty to seduce Roman Emperor Julius Caesar and general Mark Anthony, was actually “short, fat and plain.”

Angelina Jolie set to take over Elizabeth Taylor’s role as Cleopatra Angelina Jolie is one of the most beautiful women in the world, but her “perfect” looks have some critics complaining she’s all wrong for her latest role.

Earlier this month producer Scott Rudin got the Internet buzzing with his announcement that he was developing a Cleopatra biopic “for and with Jolie” based on Stacy Schiff’s book “Cleopatra: A Life.”

Schiff raved about the choice, telling USA Today, “Physically, she’s the perfect look.”

But some members of the African American community beg to differ — they are outraged by the casting decision and say Jolie is “too white” to play the Egyptian Queen.

“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,” Shirea Carroll wrote in an editorial for Essence.com.

“I firmly believe this role should have gone to a Black woman…What’s next? A biopic on Sojourner Truth played by Betty White?”

This isn’t the first time Jolie has found herself at the center of a debate about race in Hollywood.

In 2007, she sparked serious controversy when she wore tinted make-up to play the role of slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl’s wife Marian, who is partly of African descent. Pearl herself took to the press to defend Jolie, telling Time Magazine, “It is not about the color of your skin. It is about who you are.”

While experts can’t say with certainty what Cleopatra looked like, physically speaking, Jolie is probably not the most historically accurate choice. For starters, she’s probably too tall, beautiful and skinny, according to what historians now know.

“Sadly for those who seek the secret of her personal allure, the more we study Cleopatra’s surviving images, the less certain we may be of her [allegedly gorgeous] looks,” Susan Walker, a senior curator at the British Museum, told the British Sunday Times.

Despite the controversy, Jolie is still at least one fan’s ideal choice to play the Queen.

Michael Pietsch, publisher of Little, Brown (which will put out Schiff’s book this November) told UsMagazine.com, “Angelina Jolie radiates grace and power, exactly the qualities of the most intriguing ruler who ever lived.”
