Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.
I will always re-blog this
Hence why they’re called cowBOY. “Boy” was a common title/nickname for men of color (usually black men) used as a way to demean and infantilize them.
Man I always be telling fools this, you know the white boys at the Calgary Stampede
Nope Native Intelligence has been feared from the moment we told these white guys they got it twisted. Hunt, Eat, Fuck, Travel, repeat.
The first posters for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings, ahead of today’s trailer.
No. No. No.
Christian Bale can NOT be Moses. Christian Bale is whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiite.
Looks like Ridley Scott followed the 1950s casting choices of The Ten Commandments.
So progressive! Look how far we’ve come. White people are still the default in Ancient Egypt. Not only do the play the Hebrews, the also play the pre-Ptolemaic Egyptians. Who cares about ~~historical accuracy~~???
So um…who’s playing Moses’ Sudanese Sub Saharan nomadic wife?
Oh, it gets better. Apparently, a white woman from Spain is playing Zipporah, Moses’ wife.
I’m telling you. Ridley Scott watched The Ten Commandments and said “This looks perfect. No need to cast this movie ~accurately~”.
this shit looks like a projection of white feelings inadequacy through space and time.
All i’m gonna say is boycott this movie its the only way to send a message.
I’m sorry but I have to say this…why are y’all getting pissed about them not casting a fucking fake story accurately. If it was an actual part of history I might give a shit. But it’s bible bullshit and all you fucking Sheep will go to it anyways. Like you went to Passion of the Christ, Noah, all that crap. Quit trying to act like the fucking bible matters anymore. We got to get to space.
"I’m 12% Irish, 16% German, 30% Italian, 24% French, 15% Swedish, 3% Cherokee…"
the most important thing I’ve learned since this post got popular is that nothing offends white Americans more than pointing out that they’re a white American
The only struggle they endure is remembering these fucking percentages
