an important factual presentation by me
All the facts.
Ok I read through all the re-blogs… really people do some internet research. Please. Pick up a text book. History is there for anyone to read. It’s true that Africa is full of Africans with darker colored skin. However, Egypt is full of people with Arabic looking skin, to date! Cleopatra was neither. She was Greek, which would have made her look Greek. Greece is a part of Caucasia. Therefore, she’s Caucasian.
This is because Alexander the Great was from Greece and she was one of his many predecessors that remained posted in what was his Empire. People often think that when he died his empire fell apart. However, the Egyptian Empire continued on ruled by Alexander’s family. This is why Cleopatra was so upset that her BROTHER’s library of Alexandria was burnt down. It was Alexander the Great’s library.
They were only overthrown by the Roman empire. Which put Romans living there. Only to be overthrown by the Muslims no later than 400 AD. There hasn’t been a ruling African family from Africa in Egypt for a very long time.
Now her skin WOULD have been more olive and her hair brown as is Grecians but only slightly more than Elizabeth Taylor’s.
Also, why does this matter, In 1963 when this movie came out. Society was different. No one would have put the correct face on anyone. Because Hollywood. Hollywood has never been a place to find historical accuracies. Not even for a film that is about real white people. Also, this film was based a bit on William Shakespeare epic history play about the tragic romance between Marc Anthony a Roman, and Cleopatra and Greek/Egyptian. It was extremely accurate to his play. Even for Hollywood and all their bumbling.
Egypt today is very culturally diverse. However more people look like they are from Iran or Pakistan. Geographically speaking Egypt is more apart of the middle east and their culture than Africa. Since the time the Muslims took over.
This is one of the many reasons that Hitler attacked Egypt during his raids and why America went into Africa to fight Hitler. For he wished to bring it back into the folds of yet another major European Empire.
A history major.
P.s. this is all I do with my life.

Progress on my Lily cosplay from Legend1985
I’ve created a monster in this dress, as the train is soooo long. I’ll probably have to walk around with a sign on my but saying mind the dress.
I’ve still got so much work left to do. Still have to make the custom beaded/jewel belt, and completely hem the entire dress. Before I can start work on the head dress.
You can follow my progress, on my facebook page
the most fucked up thing is that
one of the most
i’ve heard in the longest time, and the result? the result from these men who claim that they would be all for feminism if it weren’t for all “the man…
Exactly, All this talk about man hating. Which I as a feminist have never done. Still! It’s about power. People with power never wish to loose it. People without power and the longing desire to acquire sometimes take that road by force. There are situations where that is known as rape.
Are we going to continue to let them rape us of our power? Men have the ability to make the biggest change the world has ever seen. That is your power. Can we walk together across the threshold into that other world?
