Who writes history?

Such an important topic!! (via my husband’s blog)

The text below says:

When Egyptian kings are played by white actors that couldn’t be whiter. When white Americans or Europeans are casted as American Indians or when Jesus is getting whiter while the “terrorists” from the same corner of the world are getting browner…

I’m so tired of it.

The world is so wonderfully colourful, why not display it like that? … Racism, that’s why… -.-

Someone getting even more angry about it but summarized it quite good can be found here.

Personally, I don’t like the linked article that much, not because of its content but of the lack of effort put into structure, grammar and orthography which makes it hard to read. And that’s sad because the topic is SO important and cannot be stressed and discussed enough.

Leanders feine Linie

307_Geschichtsstunde

Wenn ägyptische Könige von weißen Schauspielern dargestellt werden, die weißer nicht sein können. Wenn für Indianer weiße Amerikaner oder Europäer gecastet werden, oder wenn Jesus immer weißer, die “Terrorristen” aus der selben Ecke der Welt aber immer brauner werden …

Ich bin derer Dinge müd’

Die Welt ist so herrlich Bunt, warum sie nicht auch so darstellen? .. Rassismus, darum… -.-

Jemand der sich noch viel mehr darüber aufregt, es aber ganz gut zusammenfasst ist HIER zu lesen.
