Wrong their is a vast history of Queen Cleopatra VII and even some history of her brothers Ptolemy XIII Theos and
Ptolemy XIV which movies would hardly cove. They were of Greek and Macedonian descent but spoke Greek and they had no Egyptian ancestry. Their shrewd father manipulated his way to Egypt's thorn. After the father death, his oldest son oldest Ptolemy XIII Theos and Cleopatra's own brother then married her and the incestuous couple ruled Egypt together but after his death, Cleopatra then married her youngest brother and they ruled Egypt until Cleo arranged his death with Caesar. There is much more recorded(ancient writings that were later transferred into books) factual history of Cleopatra before and after she became the Egyptian queen. There are even records of her foods, let me not if you want to know what they are. So place leave to pick of a history book and read it before making such ignorant claims!

What Halle is genetically is really irrelevant. The fact of the matter is that she was still "awarded" at the expense of being exploited.

Giving Halle Berry an academy award for Monster's Ball alone was enough for blacks to boycott Hollywood all together. There couldn't have been a bigger message to black women telling them what they must do to get ahead. It's very discusting when you actually think about it. This should not have been taken as lightly as it was by the black community. But instead, we return Hollywood a favor by giving them a mini series like Scandal.
What makes Scandal even more tasteless is, Kerry Washington just played a character in Django, a film, although still a little controversial in a sense, symbolized the strongest blave love since the Pam Grier movies of the 70's. Although Pam was exploited by Hollywood a litttle herself with the nudity, she wasn't a tomout like Halle and Kerry. To hear black people cheer on Kerry Washington as though she were some modern day Pam Grier, makes me sick to the stomach. In a way she's just as bad as Halle, because Scandal isn't a movie, it's a mini series that constantly drills the modern day white mans bed wench into the subconscious of many of the young.
it will all make sense when aa begin to understand that the jew is the eternal enemy of the bm. jews have been exploiting and stereotyping blacks in the media since there was a media. these people are the absolute scum of the earth and a curse to all humanity.

Mandingo also sent a subliminal message for black men to stay away from white women. Somehow, to this day, many black women are still fine with that message, but don't care what black men think about them in IR dating.
True, with a finger waggin' don't touch our women, but we can do whatever we want with yours.

Most of us understand the crimes committed against Black men that dared to fall in love, or have sex with white women during the African Holocaust.

And whole communities being destroyed just because of some lying white skank, a la Rosewood.

I first learned how they felt about blacks back when I lived on a white college campus with a white jewish roomate. He was short, chubby, and a quiet sort of nerdy type. Although we kind of got along, we never hung out. However he slowly made it clear to me that he didn't like black people, although he grew up around some in Baltimore. He was one of those prejudice nerd types. One day I was doing some arm curls on my dumbells, and he suddenly asked  me what was I trying to prove. Yes he was one of those white jews who hated everything a black person did. I never got around to telling him the true annoying things that white people do. I guess I was still young and trying to feel my way around that large white university campus. 

Throughout  the semester, we debated which race had the better looking women, white or black. On the last day of classes, we had a few beers, and he finally admitted that black women were the prettiest because of their bodies and the variety in skin complexion, knowing some can almost look white even...which doesn't automatically mean a plus. Anyway this was always common sense to me. But when you look at the condition of many of our black women today, you sometimes wonder if their dignity is worth standing up for, especially when so many of them openly tune in to this filth of a mini series, and many today seem to be willing to even sleep with his type (my roomate). And his type don't change. In fact they get worst.

But my biggest wakeup call on the jewish communities hatred for blacks was when I worked in the biggest catholic church in D.C. as a security guard.  I worked under a jewish captain, who was new too. During the job  interview, I thought I was talking to one of the nicest white guys (the jewish captain) you could meet. But a few months after he hired me, he practically fired me for nothing, and used a Stephen looking from Django type to help him. Anyway, this white jewish captains hatred for blacks was tremedous. All the guards were black of course, so he suddenly added washing the patrol cruiser and taking out the garbage to our duties, eventhough they already had a maintenance group. There was this one young white girl secretary in our office. One evening when she was leaving, she was about to take out one of the trash bags from the waste can. I guess she felt a little sorry for us. The white jewish captain saw this and told her to put it down, and that was their job. 

This was twenty-eight years ago, and up until recently, it was the first time I've been forced out of a job....actually I was fired. I told that jewish captain that this was going to come back on him, maybe tomorrow, maybe five years later, maybe 20 years later, but it will come back. Twenty-six years later, that cathedral suffered expensive damage, along with that cities second highest building. the Washington Monument, as a result of the D.C. earthquake a few years ago.

My recent experience, I left the job before they had the chance to fire me, in which the paperwork was practically already in progress. I couldn't believe this same thing was happening to me 20 years later with a college degree from a prestigious white university, on a high paying IT job. It made me realize that the synagogue of satan grew from a serpent to a dragon, however this time almighty God stepped in, just like he did on that cathedral, and made this job my stepping stool.

Although what Denzel did doesn't no where near compare to what Halle did, I will mention another well known black actor whose recent role I wasn't all that please with. I'm talking about Morgan Freeman in "Now You See Me". Unlike "Deep Impact" , where he played the black leader to the end, in this movie he played the head man with great wisdom, while out-whitting this young white dude, who just kept coming up late.

But you know Hollywood couldn't let the movie end like that today. So the movie ended with this same young white dude actually playing Morgan Freeman for a fool all along, leaving Morgan Freeman in jail (the stereotypical image of a black man) plus looking confused. Playing an older white man over a brother is bad enough, but this sick peverted mind of the white man will place a young white dude over a senior brother in a heart beat.

Even in "Olympus Has Fallen", they made it were Angela Basset had to declare Morgan Freeman as president, which didn't give a very strong image, having to have a women tell you you are president. She almost looked like the stronger of the two. But still in that movie, the true hero and role players were white men.

So Morgan Freeman has went from playing God, to President, to jail.

Of course who she genetically is has relevance because the argument some are making is that a bw played a hwore even when everyone knows she isn't a bw. A real bw turned the role down but yet many don't even think to applaud her for such a stand because so many are focused on what a biracial woman chose to do.

All stereotypical roles. Blacks need to start viewing entertainment as entertainment. Those folks just want to be seen and when too much is asked of them in terms of morals and integrity, most bow to that type of pressure. They simply want to entertain and we should learn to accept it.

The truth is, blacks always accepted these stereotypes, on and off screen, way before I was born. This is the reason why we stay behind, then try to laugh it off as entertainment. But it's killing us. We also see that on televison because it' real and getting worst, watch the news. In a way, that's become a source of entertainment too, esepcially the major news outlets.

You have to look at the big picture. Television was never meant for entertainment. To the ones who control what you watch, it's called programming, which does lead to mind control. It was actually developed as a communication device by the government and military, the same goes for the internet. So you need to be careful here as well.

Are you sure blacks have accepted stereotypes? If I'm an italian and put garlic on my food because it's plentiful in my area thus becomes part of my culture, am I giving in to a stereotype by eating garlic?

Blacks are dying because of weakness and everyone takes advantage of the weak. It's just the way of the world. It's simply a painful truth.

Lets peradventure that Halle actually classified herself as a "biracial" woman, the fact remains you still have a NON-WHITE woman only being rewarded for roles that devalue & deface her.

And for the record...Halle IS a Black woman and she's a Black woman who actually refers to herself as a Black woman...
