Ask any typical american what skin color the Egyptians had and you might just get the same answer from each person, and after giving you their response, some might second guess themselves and logic will kick in. The ancient egyptians skin color was not the same as the Europeans because Egypt was started by inhabitants of africa. Hollywood loves throwing subliminal white supremacist messages by casting actors like Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton to play the main character in a movie set in ancient Egypt and usually cast black actors to play the servants and thieves in their racist films. Movies about egyptians are not the only place you will find white actors portraying characters and figures of minorities. Movies like “Othello,” a film based on the play written by shakespeare with the same title, have actors literally wearing “blackface,” a form of theatrical makeup used to portray people of color. A more recent example would “Pan,” a movie telling the origin story of Peter Pan, the movies casting includes Rooney Mara who has been cast in the role of Tiger Lily, who is often seen as native american. Many people ask why so many directors don’t just cast a Korean man to play a Korean man or a person of color to play as a person of color? Hollywood’s excuse is that audiences react better to white actors and the inflow of cash is better. Producers will cast an actor of swedish heritage, such as Jake Gyllenhaal, to play persians because that will get better views than if they cast an iranian actor such as Dominic Rains. Hollywood has been receiving a lot of persecution for their racist portrayals and casting, but companies like Sony Films and Disney have yet to cease their white-washing. The Egyptians were not white.
