Most ridiculous protest of the year goes to…
The Council Of Conservative Citizens! These concerned citizens are upset at the casting of a black man, Idris Elba, as a Norse God.
Norse mythology gets multi-cultural remake in upcoming movie titled “Thor,” Marvel studios. It’s not enough that Marvel attacks conservatives values, now mythological Gods must be re-invented with black skin.
It seems that Marvel Studios believes that white people should have nothing that is unique to themselves. An upcoming movie, based on the comic book Thor, will give the Aesir an insulting multi-cultural make-over. One of the Gods will be played by Hip Hop DJ Elba.
People have a right to moan about changes in an adaptation of an existing property. It’s often silly and needlessly hand wringing, but I do get it. But this, this strikes me as an excuse for some racist old white folks to get their hate on. Hopefully, if this gets any coverage in the States, it receives the amount of scorn it duly deserves.
