but they kept the servents black alright this is one of the ugliest things i’ve ever seen in my life



I am not sure I have ever seen a better use of that reaction gif.

Fuck Ridley Scott. 

Uuuuugh. This movie is going to be a trainwreck.

Totally not like the appearance of the pre-Ptolemic rulers is completely unclear or anything.  Look it up; scholars arguing that the cosmetic facial features of surviving art have been overruled by forensic study of remains indicating European or Middle Eastern origins, not further south.  But nobody saying they have the answer 100% no doubt is being completely honest.
Everyone needs to calm the fuck down about this, there are so many clear-cut examples of white-washing and racism out there to get mad about, not Ridley Scott’s racial casting choices in a period of history where the race of those portrayed is in question.  But very unlikely to be black, like their servants would be more likely to be, not because darker-skinned people were inferior, but because of the aesthetics of the period.  
I’m starting to get annoyed about Tumblr thinking they are experts on Ancient Egyptian morphology.  It’s like everybody wants to be angry.  Would it be nice if they had hired Middle Eastern actors, instead?  Yes.  Is this some evil and completely contrived crime of a white dude completely misrepresenting the period?  No.

scholars are arguing about what their appearance wasbetter make the rulers exclusively white. B^Usorry shanks I disagree with you on this one. Just because scholars aren’t sure that those rulers weren’t black doesnt make them being exclusively white while having the servants stay black any more reasonable.

They are not just not sure if they were black or not; the theory that the rulers were black has been discounted repeatedly.  Black-skinned peoples, when they were referenced in surviving texts (as skin colour was much less important to them throughout the culture’s history), were described as foreigners.  The ruling families were described as golden, a description of Middle Eastern or African Caucasoid bloodlines.   The skull structure of examined mummies is inconclusive as to specific genetics, probably being a mix over the years.  So yeah, not white, but definitely not black.  The only people that continue to argue that they were ever black are people pushing a social agenda and ignoring the science.

What about, well, not white people? What about other people of color? or heck, even racially ambiguous people instead of just well we dont know WHITeE
ETA: sorry i hit post too soon
my point is that
no matter how you turn it
the reason they cast them hwite is probably not because scholars arent sure what skin color those rulers had.
The reason most likely is that important characters are “supposed” to be white for some dumb reason


tbh I think they picked white actors so Ridley Scott could put Sigourney Weaver in something again.  Even so, Ben Kingsley is hardly white, and most of the cast, now that I look at the list, aren’t white, either.  Armenian, Jewish (obviously), Arab, etc.

In this galaxy, there’s a mathematical probability of three million Earth-type planets. And in all of the universe, three million million galaxies like this. And in all of that… and perhaps more, only one of each of us.

But why is kirk holding a giant dick in the first gif? I know I’m not the only one to see it.

He’s about to club that man in the doorway with it.  It’s very Clockwork Orange.

Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

I would love to know what this means.

All I have to offer you is Tesla fighting a Yeti.

This is Tesla being pitted against a yeti by Edison, if that’s any help.

i’m not going to say that dc comics is good or just or that as an institutional project it was even worth it but this image is one of the beautiful things that can come out of mainstream comics: this ape with a bandolier and a beret very much wants to love and fuck this brain in a jar. that’s canon. god bless america

It is also a gay relationship.

Another reason I got out of DC: prior to the new reboot, Gorilla Grodd beat Monsieur Mallah to death with the Brain.  Now in the New 52 Mallah works with Grodd for some reason.  Yeah that makes total sense.
