The Reason Why We'll Probably Never See Black Actors as Leads in Biblical Epics

Most people associate Judaism with white males. For Hollywood to give a historically accurate representation of the ancient Egyptians and Hebrews (Moses in particular,) not only are you saying that Moses was an African, he was a DARK SKINNED AFRICAN! Then one comes to the following revelations:

1) 🤬 's Chosen People are dark skinned Africans. (E.g. Ethiopian Jews,)

2) 🤬 chose an dark skinned African male to go before Pharaoh (another dark skinned male,) to demand the release of 🤬 's Chosen People.

3) Aaron (Moses older brother and spokesman) was an dark skinned African male.

4) Pharaoh's daughter was a dark skinned African female.

5) When 🤬 got fed up with the ancient Hebrews and he was about to destroy them and give Moses a bunch of new followers, it was dark skinned African male that ask 🤬 not trip on them and spare them.

Now here's were the game gets REALLY DEEP

Moses was the first Hebrew to see the Promised Land

Moses was the only person in the Bible to speak to 🤬 one-on-one.

Moses was the man that 🤬 gave the Torah, (the Law,) to. Going back to the theme I was hitting on before, 🤬 trusted, confided, instructed and spoke DIRECTLY TO, and gave His Law to a dark skinned African male.

Now to my second point, if you go into older courthouses, (especially on the East Coast,) 60 Centre St. and the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate, Division, 1st Department, you'll see murals depicting different epochs of time where men are receiving or making laws. These murals will show the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, some ancient Greek and Roman 🤬 and they'll ALWAYS include Moses with the 10 Commandment tablets. Upon analysis of the game, and from what I just said, U.S. (and therefore Western culture,) laws emanate with 🤬 giving His instructions on how to live and conduct yourself with an dark skinned African male and to show this in a movie is something that white America and (some Ashkenazi Jews,) probably can't deal with. It would shake to the core everything that we know about ourselves as a people. With the end result of white folks trippin' like a muthafucka. They would be like, you mean to tell me that 🤬 chose as his spokesman, leader of the Chosen People, spoke to directly, and gave His Law to....A 🤬 ! AWWW HELL-TO-THE-NAW! That's some 🤬 the average white person couldn't process, nor handle.

    I part the red sea every 21 days. It's a copper smell but we use the shower on those days.

    The red sea was never parted, it was a small lake, the Greeks translated it wrong lol.

    Also, to keep it 100% real

    none of us, have anything to do with the people who lived 3/4/5k years ago...

    they were not that much taller than modern day midgets/tyrion lannister lol. Yes they were dark skinned, they also spoke langueges none of us understand and consisted of several dozen for the Time unique and different ethnicities. The flora and fauna in modern day Egypt is also completly different(well largely) than it was then.

    there is 0% evidence that Moses ever existed, just speculation. 🤬 , there is more evidence that Gilgamesj existed than 🤬 Moses, wrap your mind around that

    I don't see why "Biblical Epics" would rank at the top of a "Movie subgenres that black actors would most like to be cast as a lead in" list. Even just from a logical point, theres only ever a couple of them every decade or so, and some turn out 🤬 like that last one that was released in march.

    Imagery is more powerful than rationality and logical talk. Wrap your head around that.

    Biblical stuff aside, it's an insult to see Egyptians played by fair skinned white guys. It'd be one thing to glaze over race altogether but they use the darkening makeup as if that makes them appear more authentic. Just own that 🤬 and ignore nationalities if you want a white cast.

    White suprenacy is a lie in itself. White are only supreme at one thin 🤬 dogs no one knows how to sleep with a dog like a 🤬 .

    Yeah 'reed' from 'riet' which is like the weed/common plant you find in a shitload of rivers/lakes. It wasnt a sea.

    All could be summed up with two words:

    White people.

    And for the love of 🤬 the articles "a" and "an" are not that hard: Use "a" for words that begin in consonants and "an" for words that begin with vowels.

    "A" dark-skinned male versus "an" orange-skinned male.

    "A" door vs. "an" open door.

    Thank you.
