Angelina Jolie Playing Cleopatra Angers Black Community

Posted: June 21st, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Angelina Jolie Playing Cleopatra Angers Black CommunitySubmit Comment
It was recently reported that Angelina Jolie has been hired to play Cleopatra in the upcoming biopic. Some in the African-American community found this as an insult, stating that the actress is "too white" to play the famous Egyptian pharaoh.

Essence magazine commentator stated: "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."

Others are simply tired of seeing white actresses playing Cleopatra, including Claudette Colbert in 1934, Vivien Leigh in 1945 and Elizabeth Taylor in 1963.

Experts believe that Cleopatra didn't look anything like Angelina Jolie, but she also didn't have any African lineage. Instead, she was a descendant of aristocratic Greeks. Historians says that the pharaoh was "short, fat and homely," with a pointy chin, thin lips and a hooked nose.

Cleopatra was more Greek than Egyptian anyway. Her ancestor, Ptolomey 1 was General for Alexander the Great.

I seriously don't see what African Americans are pissed off for. 1st, no real evidence to prove what Cleopatra actually looked like, secondly America has nothing to do with Egypt geogrpahically. If anyone should be pissed off its the Egyptians. But no word from them yet

I'm so glad they're pissed. Hope they get more pissed as they watch the film. I'm sure it was all good when Jaden smith was doing a white role. No complaints there. But god forbid a non black person playing an Egyptian. I've said it before, watch the black community get mad when a role they think should be black go to a white person.

The hubby and I were just arguing about this the other day. He said Angelina isn't Cleopatra and I sai well neither is Beyonce.
And hammered dmy point even further by saying but yet I bet Essence would be FIRMLY behind that rumor of Beyonce playing Wonder Woman.
I told him, get mad that Cleopatra hasn't been portrayed correctly not that she has been portrayed as black cause she's not black.
If the last number of actresses who played her were black, and they announced Taraji Henson, or Jada Pinkett was cast it should be equally unsettling.
Can't be any worse than Madonna playing Eva Peron. Which wouldn't have been so bad had Madonna actually acted.

I love how yall like to make mountains out of mole hills on this site. One "commentator" in Essence Magazine does not speak for the entire black community. LOL, when's the last time any of you heard a black person upset over Liz Taylor or Angelina Jolie outside of a Paul Mooney standup bit? Yall spend so much time trying to prove this phantom reverse discrimination BS that you miss what's actually going on around you in the real world. There's no march on Washington going on right now because black people are upset over whitey stealing our historically black roles. There's no Twitter campaigns going on to boycott Spidey if they don't cast a black person. I can't remember the last time I or any other black person on this site has complained about "the man" keeping us down. Al Sharpton isn't standing outside Paramount with an angry mob protesting the Cleopatra casting, last time I checked he's in Arizona fighting for MEXICAN "rights". Yall should try spending some time in the real world where African Americans complain about very little anymore but George Bush and OBAMA.

@Johnny: You're really hung up on this Jaden Smith Karate Kid thing? I've said it before and I'll say it again, he wasn't portraying a white character! He's the 10 yo son of two famous actors. In Hollywood that equals either instant fame and the choice of nearly any role available or a one way ticket to Lohanville (aka: rehab/prison).

@SAC - 'African-American community found this as an insult, stating that the actress is "too white" --- mountain out of a mole hill? How is THAT NOT a racist statement?

If black people want a black Cleopatra, how about they produce their own movie?

And blacks rate blacks amongst themselves. Black blacks are rated lower than lighter blacks.

Seems to me black people take notice of color a hell of a lot more than white folk do (which by the way: black comedians being able to tell whitey jokes and whitey can't tell black jokes is a joke - but not in that funny, funny joke way).

I'm alwhite... I just wanted to get that off my chest.

Dear Shirea,

Thank you for worry and talking about young Actress. But I am Kindly asking your stop such thinking, because for now many things were changed.
Seems we should make attention here more on the art part of this case.

If your will read Holy Bible, you will find information about Solomon and Queen of Sheba:

The Queen of Sheba was a monarch of the ancient kingdom of Sheba and is referred to in Habeshan history, the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament...
Although the historical existence of the queen is not proved, her image had a significant impact on the folklore and literature of many nations in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.


And about Cleopatra:

Cleopatra VII Philopator (in Greek, Κλεοπάτρα Φιλοπάτωρ; (Late 69 BC[1] August 12, 30 BC) was the last person to rule Egypt as an Egyptian pharaoh.
Egypt became a Roman province. She was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty of Ancient Egypt...

Okay, reading next about Ptolemaic dynasty: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ptolemaic_dynasty
The Ptolemaic dynasty, (Ancient Greek: Πτολεμαῖοι, sometimes also known as the Lagids, Ancient Greek: Λαγίδαι, from the name of Ptolemy I's father, Lagus)
was a Greek royal family which ruled the Ptolemaic Empire in Egypt during the Hellenistic period.

In any case, me and many others likes Whitney Houston same as Madonna, because they very good singers.

So, let be positive please, and say together - Congratulations to Angelina Joly! We wish God's help you make this difficult and important work in the new movie.
Please do good job for us, as you can - and we will wait for this moment.

Best wishes,

Cleopatra was the result of serious inbreeding (she only had six [out of a possible 16] great-great-grandparents); so she should be played by a Southern actress.

You guys are funny. Especially you, @Ranger. "She was actually a golden brown" as if you actually walked the sands of ancient egypt and know precisely what Cleopatra looked like!

What we do know is she wasn't white so if she were more of a bi-racial looking woman then Hollywood should tell the truth. Not to mention, she purchased a baby girl who resembles the people from that region more than Jolie does so be for real. Just tell the truth is all. Some of y'all *cough* RANGER *cough* don't like the truth. You sound like the white person who got choke slammed in high school for using the n-word so now you play it safe and use the dated term "negroes." HA!

But let me just say that I can admit that Black people are more racist than whites in some ways and I'll be the first to admit the SOME of my folks are less than intelligent and make mountains out of mole hills. I love white people, they're about business and in this capitalistic society, from which I am a true beneficiary, I prefer to deal with them in most cases.

I'm not racist, just want Hollywood to tell the truth and wish white people would admit that the studios have, indeed, been misrepresenting people of color in films for eons! Just like I can say black folks have been cooning for cameras since the beginning of showbiz. #thaisall

@KayKunt - As you make a distinction between black and white people (as you prefer doing business with whitey) - that makes you a racist. Sorry honey... 'tis true racist.

And now you'll realize dipsh*t that it was someone else (many actually) that have self-admittedly speculated on the appearance of Cleopatra, I never made such a comment. But I suspect between your Internet Lurking (which I hold just below child molesting, because let's face it... sometimes you get a HAWT kid) and your jumping to conclusions, you just had to sign on after reading a comment or two (who helps you sound out the words Corky?) and think bad, bad Ranger took time out from raping your mother just to piss you off... glad it worked little girly-boy.

If you don't get my 'Negros' term/reference, and from the time period of which it came (backwards, backwoods, southern US - mainly), then you're just as simple as simple gets, retard.

You're a lot like a lurking COC-sucking, Neo-Twatzy, whiny bitch, aren't you, Mr. Only See the World from your (very) limited view (mom's basement window I'll guess). So, if you just continue to contribute as the pathetic internet lurker 'til your End of Days... I'd be thrilled. So run Forrest... RUN! Moron.

Okay, Ranger and trailertrash. Together you make a great team of blissful ignorance. You win. Even though I have no idea what you're trying to say.

This is the first time I've commented on this site and from what I've read, it's seems like you two do this all day, everyday. I was lurking from my office (at a major bank mind you) because I heard in the conference room Jolie was to play Cleo. I looked it up, there it was and here we are in throws of this conversation that, I feel, has robbed me of too much time and too many brain cells. Only to be referred to as a child molester . . . again, I'm waiting for your jokes to get funny. As a father of two beautiful children, you're the pervs I would spot from miles away and tell my children to "scream and run" from a team called Ranger TrailerTrash!

Anyhow, I'm done with this topic and website. Enjoy the rest of your very lowlives on this site talking sh*t to people that you think have the time to create multiple screen personalities . . . okay, that WAS funny!

And by the way, I'm not racist, I just know what to expect from certain groups of people. I can count on black people to bail and be late continuously just as soon I can count on white people to be early and get prematurely comfortable enough to make corny "negro jokes!" And the list continues for other races of people. Just my observation and it is what it is. Whoever said, "we're all the same" is an idiot because I know for a fact that "negroes" don't french kiss their dogs.

That. Is. All.

And when will people quit getting so hung up on the race thing? This is the 21st century. I agree that a white character (such as Spiderman) should be accurately portrayed by a white actor. I also believe that if there were a Jimi Hendrix movie made, that a black actor should play him! There is no need for any particular race to break that up. It doesn't prove sh*t!

JohnZee writes:
on June 22nd, 2010 at 6:57:46 AM

What I love is that CNN ran their version of the article from Essence, and they even included two comments from a previous article about the subject.

Here was the comment against Cleopatra being played by an African American because since she was from Egypt she should be played by a black actress.

"I believe everyone is overlooking the obvious: Cleo was NOT Egyptian, she was of Greek descent. Cleo was a Ptolemy and they were Greek descendents of one of Alexander's generals; they married within their own family almost to the point of inbreeding and stayed that way until Cleo's death."

This person is using a fully established historical fact as the basis of their argument.

And now the other side of the fence, those that believe that Cleopatra should be played by a black actress because she was from Africa:

"[Cleopatra] was an African woman ... before British colonialism so she was a Black woman," he said. "It reminds me of old cowboy movies where the White guy kisses an Indian girl, but in reality she was played by a White starlet with makeup on. Come on people!"

British colonialism has jack sh*t to do with whether Cleopatra was white or black. British colonialism didn't even exist when Cleopatra was born.

And the thing was their were over 3000 comments from users about that article, and about every third comment was someone pointing out the fact that Cleopatra was ethnically more Greek then Nubian. But those for her being played by a black actress never batted an eye at the fact constantly being posted time and time again, they didn't give a sh*t about the facts of this issue at all, they just saw an opportunity to rake in another handout that there is no basis for them to have.

A lot of the highest paid actors in America are black. The sub-genre of primarily African American actors filled movies like the ones that Tyler Perry and other black directors make is the largest ethnic sub-genre of movies made in America, if not the large sub-genre of movies made period.

Their justification that there are not enough black characters in movies hold little weight when you consider that white American's make up close to 75% of the population of the United States, and the African American population doesn't even come close to 25%.

And it isn't even that black American want a better representation of all ethnic groups in movies made in the United States. Nope the majority of them couldn't give a damn whether an Asian character was cast in an Asian role or not. Or whether any ethnic character was cast with the same ethnic type of actor, except when it comes to their own ethnicity.

Anthony Quinn played a Middle Eastern, a Jew, a Greek, and even a f*cking Aryan. And do you know why? Because he was a damn good actor, and proved to the director and casting for those movies that no one could play those roles better then him.

The world is not fair, so sorry but it's about time that particular ethnic group figured that out. There are no free lunches, even if you can prove that somewhere on your family tree you had ancestors that got a bum deal.

The British were enslaved by the Romans, and instead of continually asking for favoritism from the rest of the world for what they had suffered at the hands of the Roman Empire they focused on making the saying "The sun never sets on the British Empire." a historical fact.

Chinese were treated like dogsh*t when America used them to build the railroads. Many of them endured much harsher conditions than the Average black slave.

During World War 2 the American government loaded up all the Japanese Americans in internment camps while German Americans and Italian Americans weren't even given a second glance.

The Irish were pretty much the slave/bitches of the British for centuries, and Irish American suffered years of racism here.

This simple fact is that you would be damned hard pressed to find any ethnic group in the entire world that had not at one time been forced into slavery. Or put at a disadvantage at some point because of racism or nationalism.

Yet the majority of African Americans genuinely believe that they should get special treatment for how unfair the world has treated them in the past.

And the thing is that it is not the African Americans that value education, intelligence, and proving that they can be just as much of an asset to the community as anyone else.

Nope, they are the minority within the minority.

In Martin Luther King Jr. famous "I have a dream" he said:

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that ALL men are created equal."

All men.

Life is tough, it has never been easy for the majority of the human race, and there are no free lunches.

So stop whining, your embarrassing yourself...

To this day if I hear a Bro whine about Mammy - and what she went through, or the Jews think they were the only ones that took it on the chin in WWII (my father and uncle were involved in that conflict - both Europe and Pacific campaigns) always discounting (disrespecting) others, including the Russians losses at 3.5x's more than what they suffered. I literally laugh in their face... followed by a 'whatever!'

I'm pretty hard pressed to see any black directors go out of their way to hire white actors, or go out of their way to tell a 'white' story. Color should not matter. But some tend to want to make it so.

Magazines like Essence, or Ebony...

Were I to put out a magazine called: 'Whitey!' then sit back and watch the sh*t storm.

If anyone posts after this siting that blacks are still oppressed... and can't argue... I'm not black. But try telling Sammy Davis Jr. that (an equal member of The Rat Pack!), or one of my all-time fav. actors - the powerhouse that is Denzel Washington.

Along they way they were ethnically cleaning Egypt of the Nubian invaders other than the ones they may have kept as slave labor...And how is Cleopatra Black again?

I cannot beleive that the black community are pissed about a white woman playing Cleopatra. I don't know what facts they're using to support their view that she was black- because everyone knows she wasn't. Firstly, Egyptian's were not black- they had more of a Middle Eastern appearance, many of whom had blue/green eyes. Secondly, Egyptians hated (and still hate) African people due to all the wars & disputes they had (and still have) with them. Thirdly, Cleopatra held the Ptolemy lineage- Ptolemy was one of three comanders in Alexander the Great's army who were Macedonian! When Alexanda died, he split his kingdom in three parts- Ptolemy got Egypt, and as such named the new capital after his dead leader, Alexandria- where Cleopatra resided. Therefore, she was not African, or Egyptian, but Macedonian. Plus, she was aparently ugly as f*ck, short, stout and just really not attractive (but of course, who would go see a movie if you had some ugly playing her). Moreover, the fact that Halle Berry is playing Nefertiti is a joke: she wasn't black, she was Egyptian; there is a difference!! I think the black community needs to open up some history books and educate themselves about Egyptian history!

The Karate Kid remake comparison is ridiculous. Jaden Smith wasn't playing Ralph Macchio's character, he was playing a different character, just like the rest of the cast. And its a fictitious role, not like Cleopatra, who is a historical figure. Lastly, you said "god forbid Cleopatra is played by a non black person". Aren't you forgetting that Cleopatra is ALWAYS played by a non black person?

That said, I'm so tired of people thinking a few opinions from some black people equals the entire black community. Apparently there was a survey going on that I wasn't aware about.

People like you always do the same thing, its become so predictable: name a few token successful black people as proof that black people are no longer 'oppressed'. Then you mention a few black oriented magazines, and bring up the ever so popular '...if there was a white magazine it would be racist!' when you do not realize that most mainstream magazines are indeed 'white'.

You do know that Ebony magazine was created in 1945 right? You think mainstream magazines were covering black issues at the time? Do you think "womens" magazines (white women) cover how to do black hair? Or make up tips for darker complexions? No, they completely ignore that demographic, so that is why there are different magazines for minorities. None of you ever complain about magazines that are Asian oriented, Indian oriented, Latina oriented, but as soon as its Black white folks get into a hissy fit.

We have magazines for men, and magazines for women, is that sexist? No, obviously not. There are magazines for the gay/lesbian community, is that somehow unfair to straight people? See how ridiculous that sounds? Think before you point out so-called 'double standards'.

Half the Americans black or white don't know their history and lineage. It would behoove us all to know where we came from.
If it gets people to carry on intelligent conversation then so be it. Angelina or any Causcasian should not be attacked. Contact the studios the film makers better yet get your facts straight learn about your history and origin and make your own damn movie. I am sick and tired of black folk using the race card as a platform for complaining on what is that going to do. For example look at the Jewish culture they didn't just dominate the film and business industry they did not use their torrid past injustices against their race as a crutch to complain they saw opportunity and seized. We could learn a lot from each other if we really tore down the walls of ignorance and complacency. If you don't see a job being done take it upon your self to first research the situation and start doing something about it!
