Yaaaa - it is pretty sickening.  Whoever has studied WW2 knows that the British expeditionary force was all black guys.  And the panzer divisions closing down on them - who hasn't seen the photos of all the german tanks crewed by women?

Why are we so obsessed with typecasting today?

In Shakespeare time women were often played by men, so why not vice versa?

Othello was supposed to be a black man. How often do you think a black man assumed the role? Probably less than one percent of the time.

Conservatives have become more racist and misogynistic than even people from centuries ago!!!

Isn't that a shame?

I cannot get over the stupidity of the politically correct leftists.  They are so immersed in their fight for equality of whomever that they lose sight of reality.   They act as if they are four years old, which is charming at 4, but quite ignorant at anyone over 6.

Would you be okay if a "Martin Luther King Jr." biopic had Rosie O'Donnell in the role of MLK?

People were okay for white guys to play, Chinese people, Indians (both from India and from America), Black people and what not.

So why would I object to that? Now, it's a question of talent. Is she talented enough to make me believe it?

As ignorant as you when you went out to see a John Wayne western.

Yeah, but that's just Jesus speaking through you.

I remember that verse:

And Jesus said: "I'd watch that guy get eaten by a lion in the arena!!"

I went with my parents when they went.  Yes, we all liked John Wayne movies.  We realized that it was a movie and not reality.  They were a lot of fun.  What's your problem with what I did in the 1940's?  I know, you can't make a good argument against what I say/do currently so you have to go waaaaaaay back.  Got it!   Smiley

Just as you go back to the fifties to argue against today's global warming theory.

You could use a lot of your own advice!

Besides, when John Wayne played in the Alamo (historical movie!). You didn't complain that a lot of the Mexicans were played by non Hispanics, did you?
