classicaly white

Hello bront:

"Classically"????? As in, somebody IMAGINED them to be white??? Or, actually white, as in actually white??

Actual white people should be portrayed by actual white actors.. But, where somebody IMAGINED a white character, somebody else can IMAGINE a black character..

You know, like Santa Clause or Jesus.

Cool. The libs have made white real figures black already, but continue.

But, where somebody IMAGINED a white character, somebody else can IMAGINE a black character..

Cool. Can Black Panther or Shaft become White, Asian, or Native American?

You know, like Santa Clause or Jesus.

Both are historical figures. What's your point?

No they aren't. There is no historical evidence either of them even existed. Stop telling lies you wifeless, childless Nazi prick.

The earliest accounts of his life were written centuries after his death and contain many legendary elaborations.

Very little at all is known about Saint Nicholas's historical life.[10][11] Any writings Nicholas himself may have produced have been lost[12] and he is not mentioned by any contemporary chroniclers.[12]

Furthermore, even if St Nicholas did at some point exist, that does not make Father Christmas a "historical character". You're a fucking idiot.

Yes, and someone imagined Shaft, Black Panther and Dr Dolittle, and Madea to be black. Would it be weird if they were white, Asian, or Native tomorrow, or would that just be normal shit? Do tell.

Well, for instance Ian Fleming's character James Bond was a white British secret agent.

Throughout some 50 years of around 26 Bond movies the hero has always been white.

I'm sure if a Bongo appeared as 007 with a license to kill the Bond image would take a nose dive into oblivion.

Let the Bongo authors and script writers create their own characters with the plot revolving around black people engaged exciting espionage and mysterious intrigue.

The name of such a black hero might be Ingle Tookie and the first movie could be called ''The Golden knife job in London''.
