Exodus Gods & Kings As it should Have Been Cast

Description

Many of you like me are likely displeased with the casting for Ridley Scott's latest film "Exodus: Gods and Kings." The white-washing of African history (particularly Ancient Egypt) and Biblical figures has gone way too far. This is 2014 NOT the 1950s! The film should have been cast more appropriately. In response to the film, I have made my own cast with actors who would have been perfect for the film. I do not own any of the images or the song "Belfast Child." Some of the original cast members I decided to keep because in contrast to Joel Edgerton, John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver- they look like people from Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula. If you are outraged by the cinematic colonialism that has downtrodden Africa's history and other cultures in cinema, please share this and spread the word that this must STOP!!! Thank you for watching. I will have another cast for another upcoming white-washed disaster "Gods of Egypt." Do yourself a favor and DO NOT waste money or time to see either of these films. Together we can put a stop to such racist casting. If you have any thoughts on who should have been cast for this film, please share your thoughts in the comment section below.
