This is a very racist movie - It does not make it OK just because they yell, "Pile those Persians high!" instead of "Pile those Jews [or Armenians or substitute your favorite ethnic group here] high!” This is just one example. There are many more subliminal racist messages in this movie. Another example, Greeks and Persians have very similar physical features. In this movie Persians are made to be dark skinned and deformed. There are multiple levels of racism right there. One, showing darker skinned people as evil. Two, showing Persians as dark skinned. Three, showing deformed people as evil and not deserving of our sympathy. Do you remember another minority group being depicted as sub-human and deformed in the very recent past (hint, you don’t have to go back 2500 years)?

I am a persian from Canada.
I watched the movie and it was totaly far from the real story.
Xerex ( Persian king ) was a black man with so much make up. No where in the history we had a black king with make up. Xerex ( Khashayar shah ) was a very brave king who had participated in so many battles. Please check this website for your more information about king of Iran.

I haven't seen the movie but I'm dying to. Keep in mind that although it's based on historic facts IT IS STILL A MOVIE. I love Gerard Butler and I'm sure I'm going to love "300"

The reason the Persian Candian is asking for you to read history is because American and Canadian are so stupid that they believe what they see in the movie and keep that registered in their little brain as the reality. Just as they did with the image of Native American's in the movies!
