Hannibal to Be Played by a Black Actor

Recommended Posts

This comes on the heels of a recent series featuring Cleopatra as a black woman that caused outrage in Egypt for the disrespectful attempt to change their history. The creators of that series said that somehow Cleopatra could have been black, despite that her ancestry was from Macedonian Greece, and that the backlash was proof of racism.

I guess a series about Nelson Mandela played by a white actor would be fine.

How about this: how about everyone respecting the historical realities of other people's cultures or countries and nobody engages in cultural appropriation?
