Throwing in characters with a different origin where they don't belong is tantamount to retconning history.

"oh look, there was no racism in the roman empire. They had black officers!" Fuck yes there was and fuck no there wasnt.

"Cleopatra was black" No she wasnt. She was greek, with a sprinkling of Persian.

And now they're doing Gawaine, the black knight I mean, and the Green knight

Now, I will concede that Palamedes and his two brothers were saracens from the middle east, so there was knights of darker colors at the round table, but Gawaine was from somehwere up in Scotland.
If they, somehow, in the movie, infer that Palamedes or one of his brothers somehow cuckolded King Lot which then produced Gawaine, I will accept it because its, while reaching, at least plausible.

I understand people wanting to see characters who look like them and are part of the same broad culture heritage. That said, I feel rewriting history to be more politically correct is deeply offensive to the memory of all the people who were victimized under colonialism.


Keanu Reeves was relly not the draw for me when I watched the otherwise shitty 47 Ronin. Give me Akira Kurosawa with a full japanese cast any day of the week.

Shogun and The Last Samurai both had a white protagonist in a otherwise japanese setting. But those two were at least based on/inspired by real people.

Speaking of offensive falsification of history in movies.  All those movies were the americans take credit for what british troops did (U-571), Canadians (Argo), and don't get me starting on Mel Gibson with the Patriot and Braveheart.

No offense, but having Keanu Reeves in 47 Ronin was the least of its problems :D

Adults all know how incredibly fake this Blackwashing of history is, especially the people who vocally defend it. It's meant to shape how kids see the world, and specifically to deny White kids any sense of their own history or identity beyond their own immediate experience. White kids are to have no cultural heroes beyond whatever POC Common Core decides make the focus of the textbooks or the current hip hop clown named lil' something.

No King Arthur, no Conan, no Odysseus, nothing. Completely cut off, isolated, atomized, and subject to the everchanging whims of pop culture and institutionally imposed ideology.

...for the purpose of demoralization and inflicting psychological harm to White kids.

It narrows the mind. Weakens the body. And robs the soul of spirit and determination. Comfort is neither welcome nor tolerated here."

Yep, this is all correct. You'll notice I didn't really mention any white heroes in my description of my teaching years, why do you think that's the case?

Greetings!

Here is a brief segment where Tucker Carlson details the nonsense that Leftists are teaching children in American schools.

Semper Fidelis,

I'm reminded of this when anyone posts anything from Tucker Carlson:

  I am reminded NPR gets money from the government, LOVES big government, and that title is a bit misleading with regard to the actual article they wrote, as well as what actually happened in the incident they are reporting on.

Then, this morning, I read an article where this medical OBGYN association declared that "In light of the knowledge that race is a social construct, and not based on biology, we..." These people are so fucking delusional they need to be put in an insane asylum. There are clear, distinct, biological differences between Indians, Africans, Caucasians, and Asians. Each possesses a whole range of distinctive features and attributes that are scientifically discernible, even from *skeletons* Diseases, immunities, and on and on. Social construct my ass. These people are fucking nuts.

Literally thousands of years ago we had Plato discussing what we now call "social construction" with his theory of forms. Back then people were intelligent enough to recognize that pretty much all of what we consider to be a "thing" is socially constructed based on a referent to a higher ideal, even something such as the color red or blue.

Human ethnic groups obviously exist. The categories are real by any metric we use for anything. We can independently verify that these categorizations are valid through hundreds of different non-subjective means of measurement. The argument that is often trotted out is that because we don't have a single gene, or a single trait we can use to distinguish these groups, that they aren't real. Most of this boils down to sophistry and intellectual cowardice.

   The Last Samuria irritated me to no end.  They have a dude who comes in and learns how to samurai better than half the samurai in the clan over the course of about 3-4 months.   That sort of greatly cheapens the whole idea of spending a lifetime honing a skill doesnt it?

It’s even seeped into most news media.

PCGamer sneers at the idea that more police = less crime... https://www.pcgamer.com/amp/cities-skylines-has-scared-off-all-the-other-urban-city-builders/

...even as Vox, a year prior to the explosion of anti-police sentiment, explained that statistically more police = less crime and that black voters actually want more police to protect them. https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/2/13/18193661/hire-police-officers-crime-criminal-justice-reform-booker-harris

Any way the wind blows, that’s the way that a leftist goes. They don’t care about the facts or even what black voters actually want. All they care about is bowing down to the capricious whims of the twitterati.

It would be irritating if Algren wasn't basically made out to be the ultimate badass soldier who just turned to alcoholism to avoid thinking about murdering Indians. It'd be like getting mad that a basketball movie featured Michael Jordan becoming an elite streetball player after spending an entire winter learning the differences between NBA rules and playground rules.
