Angelina Jolie is a Racist Bastard

Because, you know, as a WHITE woman she keeps accetping roles that should go to BLACK actresses.

Like that of Mariane Pearl in A Mighty Heart. Because Mariane's mother was part African many in the black community felt it should have gone to a black actress. Nevermind that Mariane Pearl herself chose Angelina for the part.

And now she has the nerve to play Cleopatra. And the same criticisms are arising.

Fucking morons.

Daily Mail:

Race row erupts over casting of Angelina Jolie as Cleopatra
By Sophie Forbes

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 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.'

The original film was one of the most infamous films of all time.

With several delays lasting months due to illness, crew strikes, a change of director and even deaths on set, the movie became the most expensive film ever made - nearly bankrupting 20th Century Fox.

(I'd say something about her playing with my asp but you've already thought it)

We know she was of a Greek dynasty, that she was descended from Alexander the Great and that most of the Pharoahs were not black. It would be racist to cast a black actress because Egypt is in Africa.

If I remember correctly, the expression is, "Take your feelthy hands off my asp."

Now, contestants, where do I remember it FROM?

When Jolie starts talking seriously about playing Dagny Taggart (does Brangelina still have the option on the movie script?) let me know. What the hell, who needs to see the Taggart Tunnel Train Wreck when we've got the Deepwater Horizon and the Obama Administration? Same scenario, but with more pelicans.

Cleopatra was of the Ptolemy dynasty from Greece. They have coinage from the era depicting her, clearly Greek.

Jolie claims some Native American and mixed race ancestry on her mother’s side.

«Cleopatra was of the Ptolemy dynasty from Greece.»

A Greek actress should play Cleopatra or an American of Greek ancestry:

where was the outrage when eartha kitt and halle berry played the
catwoman? where was the outrage when the honeymooners was remade with
a black cast? nick fury originated as a Caucasian in the comic books
yet sam jackson plays him in the movies. the character gilbert was
also Caucasian, but when the leave it to beaver movie was cast a black
actor played the part.
two black actors played the title characters in white chicks
wearing white face.
robert conrad played jim west on the tv series the wild wild west;
will smith played the part on film.

more of the entitled mindset. I didn't know movie roles were supposed to be cast based on affirmative action. I just figured whoever made the movie chose whomever they thought was most qualified. Maybe they passed on Hallie Berry because their opinion matches mine...she just plain sucks.

Maybe vanessa williams, halle berry, and others weren't interested in being in the film, and when was the last time either actress played in a big budget movie or got nominated for an award?

And by the way, Angelina wouldn't have your racist *ss, jag-off. She has a black baby, if you hadn't noticed. Perhaps you're too poor to have cable to watch her documentaries, you being from "the dirty South" and all. Lol! You probably have all kinda black kin runnin' around since your granddaddy was rapin' and knockin' up all those poor black women on the plantation. Tell your cousins, Dewan and Lakeisha I said wzup! LMFAO! B*tch..
