Cultural Stooges of Political Propaganda Passing for History Pleading plaintively for Relevance...when they are Truly Irrelevant!

"The outrage over Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Cleopatra for an upcoming Hollywood film is amusing. Critics have accused the filmmakers of “whitewashing African history.” That may be an issue in many Hollywood films, but this is not one of them. Gal Gadot, who is from the Mediterranean, is better suited to play Cleopatra than an African actress."

The desperate intense and pitiful struggle to retain relevance of a never more than 50% relevant and non-dominant culture is stunning to read in 2021. Talk about a greedy last-ditch attempt to suck all the air out of the room occupied by a remnant of committed civil society.

The author doubles down on the original ignorance and the original sin - the stain of racism and colorism, ‘othering’ and demonization. Minnesota show trial and a never ending nightmare of police murders notwithstanding, feel free to get me started on how THEY! are death-dealingnarcissistfascist derrieres.

Ojays Cry Together

These natives need some sleepy time tea ( or stronger sedatives) I am tired of their rage, fries, terrors, over different skin colors! I have never held it against them for being born light and white, sometimes?

When I read:
“The collapse of the Western Roman Empire led to the “Dark Ages” ”
I think: As if one were less stupid and or banal than the other?! I guess doubling down on hate has deep cultural resentments along racial lines. Really, I have no desire to repeat their insanity. But y’all clearly are desperate to redeem it! Stop. Just. Stop. We need a makeover, soon.

Just phoning it in. Shame!

Please, can't y'all give it a respite/ rest/ a break? RIP, QUICKLY.
Such is still The Way of The World.
