In a nutshell, identitarian leftists (the far left socialists) wish to deny employment to a black man based on the color of his skin. And not just any black man. We’re talking about will Smith, a darling of the Hollywood elite, gender fluid children and all.

Your summary actually doesn't summarize any of the main points of the article, and usually it's considered good etiquette to post snippets at least.

You may want to edit your post while there's still time.

Honestly, I think they have a point.
Williams sisters and their father are dark skin. Wouldn't be hard to find a guy who looks more like the father.

I suppose having Smith though would give if wider appeal.

I don't think they're hating on Will btw

Now for liberals, it's not just white = bad, black = good. Now it's bad just if you are not black enough.

Remember all those recent movies and TV series where white characters were played by black actors and it was amazing, progressive and empowering?

Because it's the current year and the color of your skin doesn't matter anymore (you racist bigot!), and neither real people nor fictional characters are defined by it?

But now a dark skinned black man can't be played by a light skinned black man?

Get the fuck outta here.

Actually the first paragraph of the article says it all:

Quote:Will Smith can play a blue-skinned genie in “Aladdin,” but don’t ask him to play somebody “too black.”

Facepalm3

From what I read, Richard Williams grew up in Louisiana when the KKK was still very much active. NotwIthstanding, it also sounds like he harbored resentment against whites and he and his friends engaged in stealing from whites. I’m guessing an implied recent white ancestor is too close to comfort for some. Richard Williams is going to be portrayed as a hero in this movie I assume.

Or it could just be the left getting even more racist and batshit crazy. It’s another example of the left trying to challenge notions of attractiveness (e.g. putting fat chick on cover of Cosmo).

This story reminded me of something not directly related to Will Smith and this movie. Back in the mid 90’s, there was the Star Trek Voyager tv series. In this series, Tuvok, the Vulcan, was played by a black actor. (Incidentally, the Captain of the ship was a female too.). Anyway, this type of experiment in Hollywood has been going on for a while and there are undoubtedly examples much earlier than the 90’s. At least in Star Trek you have the science fiction realm where anything is possible and not subjected to historical verification.
