Joseph Fiennes (White Guy) To Play Michael Jackson (Black Guy) In New Movie

Hollywood stays on that bullshit.  Now, it’s spread to England. A white guy will now play one of the most iconic Black entertainers of all time.

According to The Guardian, Joseph Fiennes will play the late superstar in a made-for-TV drama to appear on the British channel Sky Arts. The TV movie centers around a fabled road trip in which Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando tried to get home to Los Angeles from New York after the September 11 terrorist attacks. This is dumb. Very dumb.

This has reached a new level of bullshit.  Look, I get it. Michael Jackson was a weirdo and he bleached his skin. But he was still was still, very much, a Black man. People are going to try to make the argument that because the King of Pop bleached his skinned and permed his hair it’s OK for a white, British dude to play him. Those people are stupid. If one of these people says this to you, stop them and tell them they are stupid.

I’d write more on this, but it doesn’t deserve many more words.  This is bullshit.
