So, to be honest, I’m getting so sick of hearing all this bullshit about people hating the new Khan because Benedict is white. According to a lot of people, it doesn’t matter that he did a fantastic job acting as Khan. He is white. A lot of those same people claim that you can’t be…
Why is it that people don’t think you can be racist against white people? If you hate white people because of what their ancestors did to your ancestors, you’re a racist. I am not responsible nor should I apologize for something that I didn’t do. And if you actively hate white people (calling them…
I guess I shouldn’t care about this “reverse racism” bullshit and how “minorities can only be oppressed” because I’m South African and only Americans or other first world individuals are speaking about this topic so passionately.
But there’s level 6 genocide against whites going on in South Africa so when someone says some shit that whites can’t be discriminated against I’m like, “Yes they can. Bitch I’ve seen it and live through it.”
I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE ARE RACIST TO WHITE PEOPLE AND THINK IT’S ”OK” WHEN IN THE NEXT BREATH THEY ARE WHINING ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE BEING RACIST!!!!
NEWSFLASH, ANYONE CAN BE A RACIST, RACISM = IGNORANCE/HATE
IF YOU TARGET AND HATE ON WHITE PEOPLE (RUDE/NASTY REMARKS,BULLYING ETC), BECAUSE OF SKIN…
No matter what you believe the definition of racism or racial prejudice is, if you treat a person or group of people differently based on their race, no matter what race they or you are, you’re a giant dickwagon. That’s all there is to it.
Jesus, you really are dense, aren’t you? THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE RACIST AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE. Or should I say ‘PREJUDICE’? There are many people who hate white people! It isn’t just limited to people of color and clearly you need to reread history and pay attention to fucking news. If you were white and walking down a road in the Middle East, you would most likely be killed. It wouldn’t matter if you were a soldier or just visiting a family. It wouldn’t matter if you were French, German, British, or American. THEY DON’T ASK ‘HEY, ARE YOU AMERICAN?’ BEFORE THEY ATTACK IF THEY ARE TERRORISTS. BUT IN YOUR FANTASY WORLD THAT OBVIOUSLY ISN’T RACIST OR PREJUDICED. I said BOTH actors declined, so apparently, in your little deluded mind, both means more than two. Are you really THAT stupid? Come on. You are being fucking racist/prejudiced if you hate someone for their skin tone/race/nationality.
Benedict Cumberbatch is a talented actor and you are a poor judge of acting if you can’t see that. Probably clouded by your hatefully racist mind.
On top of that, try to tell me you can’t change your skin colour.
I’m not the racist one here. I’m only saying that Benedict did a superb acting job as Khan regardless of his skin tone. You, on the other hand, are demanding it had to be a person of colour because it was beforehand to demonstrate the white people are good and better than people of colour. Let’s not get into the dozens upon dozens of white bad guys in the original Star Trek now, because frankly, it is 3am and I’m tired of arguing with a stupid anon. If anything, a white actor playing Khan would lessen the racism by showing the people conquering the world as white. Not only that, but while Khan was the most successful leader of the group of genetically engineered super humans, he ruled with a firm, but gentle hand. In Into Darkness, the only reason Khan was cruel, was because his family was threatened. People he loved. I would pissed off too and take revenge if I was him. In Space Seeds it showed him as a generally calm and peaceful person unless threatened. So, how is that making white people look innocent or however you phrased it?
It’s like Albert Einstein said. You can’t argue with stupid.
One: I am not racist. I, unlike you apparently, accept everyone. The whole point of what I said was that skin color shouldn’t matter. Khan WAS white in The Wrath of Khan, or at least fairer skinned than he was in Space Seed. That was obvious to anyone who isn’t a racist idiot and can accept that skin can change colour.
Two: It is blatantly stated in Space Seed that Khan’s NATIONALITY was India. Northern India, in fact. So excuse me, while I actually pay attention to this shit. So, again, he could have been a white Indian. This is obvious to anyone with any common sense.
Three: I stated already that they did choose people of colour for the role first. They both declined. So what did they do? Hired an actor with AMAZING talent for the role because they couldn’t find an actor to play the role of Khan who was coloured and available and had the talent that they were looking for. You, dear anon, are being the ultimate racist by judging Benedict’s performance on his skin colour rather than his acting.
Oh my fucking stars. You can be white and be a different nationality! White is a skin color! There are people of color who are French, Canadian, British, whatever you need to insert to get it through your head!
I know full well the CHARACTER was Indian. People were bitching about how they didn’t CAST an Indian for the role. The ACTOR was Mexican. Benedict could easily be portraying a white Indian! They do exist you know!
The Wrath of Khan.
What was that? I can’t hear you over the sound of how wrong you are.
The classics? I’m actually giggling. Try watching shit from the 60’s and 70’s like Doctor Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, Mary Poppins, 101 Dalmatians, The Godfather, Monty Python, The Exorcist, Jaws, Halloween, Willy Wonka, Carrie, The Pink Panther, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Andy Griffith Show, The Brady Bunch, Bewitched, and so on. Don’t put movies from the 90’s and 2000’s on a list of classics. They might be classics someday in thirty years from now, but right now, no.

Casting appreciation gif.
This seriously pisses me off because TWO men of the “correct” ethnicity/race were asked to play the role of Khan. I don’t remember their names because this back when Into Darkness was in casting yo but they BOTH DECLINED.
So there’s a HUGE difference between “well, we asked the best in the business and they both said no, so we should go with another actor of the ‘incorrect’ race who is also very well suited for the role” and doing what the Hunger Games did which is literally only let white girls audition for Katniss.
When actors decline there is fuckall you can do. It’s shitty, no doubt, that Khan ended up being white, but BC did a great job in the role, while knowing he was third choice. I won’t begrudge him for taking it, and I won’t begrudge the casting crew for going with him after their best actors declined.
I mean it’s good that they asked pocs first, but there’s not nothing you can do…you can still not ask a white guy to play the role? They could have thought really hard and come up with some more Indian actors, or held auditions…
I’m so sick of hearing this bull about whitewashing Khan. I loved the original Khan, but you know what? Benedict did a really fucking great job at playing the role. So what are they supposed to do when their first choice Indian (which by the way, Ricardo Montalban was MEXICAN and in The Wrath of Khan, he was FUCKING WHITE) decline the role? Say, oh, we are going to go with a second rate actor just because he matches the skin colour of the old Khan and it doesn’t matter if the movie goes down hill because of it? There are plenty of great Indian actors, I’m sure, but when they decline or aren’t up for the role or their acting just isn’t as good as the rest of the cast what are they supposed to do? Benedict was a great choice for the role of Khan as a third resort. I probably wouldn’t have watched it if they hadn’t cast the role to a person of equal talent as Benedict. It would have made them worse to go with someone based on their skin tone rather than their skill. And again, Khan in the Wrath of Khan was WHITE so how the hell is casting Benedict white washing?
And THAT’S why I watch the Mentalist.
MY MOUTH DROPPED OPEN! THIS IS IT! THIS IS IT! THAT’S HOW HE STOPPED HIS PULSE!
