Personally, I have no issues with a person’s colour for the colour is only
skin deep and it is the person themselves which is more of an interest to
myself. I look beyond the colour and endeavour to ascertain who the person is,
so then form my reasons for liking, disliking or being indifferent to the
person irrespective of their skin colour.
So, all the fixation on skin colour is abhorrent to me, but it takes all
sorts of people to make a World.
I also fail to understand the human nature to killing other beings for I
believe we are the only species that kills others for pleasure and not just for
resources to live.
Should you believe in the scientific creation of humans as opposed to the religious
then humans originated in Africa and assuming Africa was a hot climate, then it could
be that through the various form of evolution the first humans would have been a form
of dark colour, either a dark brown or black and the forms of lighter shades
and to some form of white were made over centuries due to climatic changes and
the body colours changing accordingly.
Today there are many diverse ranges of colour, with some takes actions to
change their colour for periods of time, persons being white and light skinned,
sunbathing to get a darker tan, then some persons of dark colour taking forms
of chemicals to create and lighter skin colour. Is sunbathing a belief that a
slightly darker skin gives a greater degree of good health perception, while
taking chemicals to obtain a lighter skin colour means a greater degree of
acceptability in assumed Society. Whatever, it is it is very confusing.
So, to relate more to the article, it could well be assumed that, if
Cleopatra was Greek she would have been more of an olive, slightly brown complexion
than being either white or black, but in reality does it make any sense what
colour she was, for Cleopatra as a person should be so much more important.
Is this Egyptian lawyer more concerned about Society reflections than the
actual colour of Cleopatra, as is so also for Netflix, than her real colour and
as I say is it really that so important?
In the World there are many so much more important issues to be concerned
with, the whole existance of Earth being the main one.
Why doesn’t this Egyptian lawyer and also Netflix concentrate more on
climate change, than the colour of Cleopatras skin, surely the existence of
everyone is so much more important.
Is it religion that is the more involved factor than skin colour, for
religion has over, many centuries caused more conflicts than many others. Even
in religion is the a skin colour conflict, for many Christians believe that
Christ was while or more white than any other colour, but if you believe in
Christ he was more likely slightly brown than white. Now is this down to the
Roman influence, who after years of degrading Christians, eventually took
Christianity as their religion hence the birth of Roman Catholicism.
In fact, why was there some many religious conflicts when in Christianity
there preaches a view of tolerance and turning the other cheek, which in many
instances Christians don’t.
We do, all need to learn to live with each other in peaceful existence and
in doing so all our lives will be so much better.
Source: Egyptian Lawyer Suing Netflix for Portraying Cleopatra as Black
Netflix has caused a bit of controversy this week with its documentary about the legendary queen of Egypt by having her played by a Black actor. This is unhistorical, as the real Cleopatra was Greek, descended from Ptolemy, one of Alexander the Great’s generals. Ptolemy had set himself up as pharaoh after Alexander’s death. I’ve also heard the claim today that she also had red hair. There have been a number of posts by bloggers and vloggers across the Net showing that Netflix got it wrong. And now, apparently, an Egyptian lawyer is so angry about it and the threat it presents to Egyptian identity that he’s suing Netflix. He also wants the streaming service banned in Egypt because its content is contrary to Islam, and especially Egyptian Islam.
His argument is that the portrayal of Cleopatra as a woman of colour is Afrocentric, and derives from that ideology’s doctrine…
