Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) demanded that the African queen should be played by a woman of color, even though the historical Cleopatra was Greek, not black.

"Stop whitewashing Cleopatra!!!" tweeted Kendra James, a writer and editor at Shondaland.com. "Film the story of literally any other queen on the vast African continent."

The real Cleopatra’s lineage was from Macedonia (greece).

Guess that probably wasn’t mentioned in article or discussion

I think Cleopatra was Greek, if being technically correct is important.

Marvel gave us a black Nick Fury after decades of the white Sergeant/Colonel Fury in the comic books. So how are they going to fix that one for us?

Cleopatra was not African. She was Macedonian Greek and a descendant of Ptolemy I Soter, a general in the army of Alexander the Great. She would probably have looked Mediterranean, like most Greeks today.

The dynasty Cleopatra was part of was Macedonian Greek. That pesky history keeps getting in the way of the maniacs’ narrative.

Wasn’t Cleopatra a Greek? A descendant of the Greek General Ptolemy?
