When Idris Elba, aka Stringer Bell from The Wire, was cast as Heimdall in Thor, I thought it was odd casting. “So Odin has a black son now? That’s weird,” I thought, and then I shrugged and took a bite of my sandwich and forgot about it forever. Of course, for the types that get angry when something says “Season’s Greetings” instead of “Merry Christmas,” casting a black guy as “the white god” was pretty much guaranteed to be a nearly endless source of self-righteous bitching. I mean worshiping false idols is one thing, but a BLACK pagan? Too far, man, too far.
DEY TOOKKK YER JAWBS!
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. [CoCC]
HAHAHAHA — (*checks Idris Elba’s Wikipedia page*) Aw crap, he actually is a hip hop DJ? Well that’s not a very clever insult then, is it. Anyway, the Council of Conservative Citizens (formerly the White Citizens’ Council) is organizing a boycott. And that’s a shame, because I was really looking forward to hearing what Andrew the racist speech impediment kid would have to say about it.
