get out your VCR’s it’s time to watch The Prince of Egypt. or you can watch it here.

please don’t watch exodus: gods and kings because it’s icky and racist. you deserve better. you deserve the prince of egypt.

It is safe to say that I will not be going to watch the weird gross whitewashing mess that is Exodous…

I get this yeah
But I still want to point out the major roles were STILL all voiced by white people.
Soooooo
idk I still feel weird about the whole valorization of Prince of Egypt, though I do think that as an example of Biblical stories the animation and the actual story is way more on point to the source material/reality
But it’s still a mostly white cast.
Playing non-white characters.
So…..

the only note I’d like to point out is Ben Kingsley is in that scene where Fake Moses has a bow, and he’s not white.

And yeah, my biggest criticism of Prince of Egypt is the white voice cast.

Are you thinking of Patrick Stewart? Ben Kingsley’s not listed in the main cast at all.
Aside from singing voices, Danny Glover is the only non-white person. (I mean…idk how Jeff Goldblum identifies, but I don’t *think* he’s ever explicitly identified himself as non-white, but, interestingly, I think he’s the only Jewish actor in the main cast)

"IT’S TIME TO ACT! ISRAEL MUST BE STOPPED!
This is a message from Norman G. Finkelstein.
It’s Monday, 12:00 noon.
I am ready to commit civil disobedience tomorrow, Tuesday, 29 July, at the Israeli Mission to the U.N.
However, I don’t believe in individual acts of martyrdom
It’s got to be a collective action.
If one hundred people either sign up to get arrested or to be there in solidarity, I’ll be there too.
Just forward me your name and contact info to confirm. (normfinkelstein@gmail.com)
If we can assemble a list of one hundred people by tomorrow morning at 10:00 a.m., we’ll meet at the Mission.
Let’s do it!
The people of Gaza need us!"

Norm Finkelstein (via maxineanwaar)

Here is the link to the event/action.

if you are in New York, please consider attending. If not, please pass on the word.

I am stupefied. The Egyptians and other stationary desert cultures mastered building techniques that allowed for open air flow, pleasure boating, and beautiful open atriums and courtyards with gardens, yet ya’ll are going to sit here and tell me that the upper class royals were light in color because they didn’t go outside…

Hello, these people WORSHIPED THE SUN, yet according to the you, they didn’t go outside.
