Is that a joke? 

Complexion literally means "color of the skin". So her skin color is "ashen white". How can you quote something saying "her skin is white", and ask where it's said that her skin is white...

 

A bit ironic to say "let me break it down for those people to understand" when you fail to understand the most important word in the sentence... 

I tried to be civil but your ignorance is showing.

The first quote that I assumed people are using as a base for this dabate is false because the book never used those words. So I specifically gave direct quotes from two real sources. So you didn't know you can use complexion to discribe the appearence and perspective of things. I hope you learned something from this experience. 


Somebody, get this guy a chair.

 

So you're now trying to say that the quote means "she has a white perspective" or "she has a white appearance but not white skin"? 

 

2 other people taught you the obvious meaning of the word. Don't try to cover your mistake by now going in a dictionary to choose any secondary meaning with no relation to the sentence.

 

And you even dare to be condescending... No no, go ahead, it's so much better than to admit that you made a mistake. Keep digging!

Circular logic ain't going to work on me, but go ahead and ignore the fact the quote is not even real. Ignore the fact I ga ve you the actual real quote. That's how people not learn and you're doing great at it.



This is just as bad as the gay black Achilles.

What, are you saying you wouldn't describe a person as having "fair hair, with ashen-white perspective and large impetuous green eyes"?!

Edit; Ciri's parents

Not very likely that Ciri would somehow be dark-skinned or Asian looking.

Hahaha,exactly.Gods of Egypt was all fine and dandy because "it's fiction so the cast can be anyone".As soon as whites are replaced in any movie,there's an out roar.It's fantasy Ciri could be blue for all I care.

So let's not pretend there wasn't backlash against Gods of Egypt

Yeah,what a real backlash.

hmm..this is pretty strange, let's see what Netflix will say.

I can only speak for myself but just as I think this Ciri situation is a bad decision, I thought that was a dumb idea as well. The main characters in that movie were mythological gods, most of which had been represented in Egyptian culture through animals or humans with animal heads, but if they were going to make them human then they should've looked like they belonged to Egypt. Which wasn't the case at all, obviously.

So don't generalize dude. Some of us call the BS as soon as we see it, no matter the color.

I wasn’t talking about God’s of Egypt specifically, I haven’t seen it.

white actors have been playing everyone since movies became a thing with no outrage I can remember.

was there a thread like this when Exodus had Christian bale playing Moses for instance? Did you voice your objection then?

I'm aware that it's something that has been happening for decades and I certainly don't support it.

Regarding Exodus, I honestly didn't watch it nor did I hear anything about the casting in its time but if it's guilty of the same BS as God of Egypt I would certainly object to that movie as well.

Yeah, I noticed most of them were praising this move by Netflix. Not surprising, Era is a giant alt-left circle jerk. I used to think Gaf was bad, Era has proven themselves to be much worse. I hear Gaf has gotten better since they all left.

What's alt-left?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
