Even you wouldn't believe it if Nicole Kidman or Margot Robbie was cast as tribal Aborigines in a movie. Or Bill Nighy as a Zulu Chief or John Goodman as samurai.


Until the 1970s, white people did exactly that, Soren.  They donned Blackface and acted as Indigenous Australians on stage and screen.  Tsk, tsk, tsk...   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes


So? Was it believable for you, cockwomble?


They thought it was. What do you reckon, Soren, hey?  Tsk, tsk, tsk...  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

What did YOU think, worm? That was the question. Don't switch to 'they'. You ARE they, dishonest squishy slithering bozo.

But in your case vulgarity is a splendid substitute for  the wit ..... you are.

Someone said we could not judge a person's Aboriginality on their skin colour.  Why isn't that applied in the matter of Pascoe?  Tsk, tsk, tsk...   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

It became politically incorrect. It's not done anymore for that reason. Is it politically correct to turn the tables?



An important point.

Blacks can 'culturally appropriate' but whites are racists for doing the same.

Black pride - empowering. White pride - odious. BLM - anti racism. All lives matter - white supremacy.
Nigglers calling nigglers nigglers - playful diversity banter and vibrant ebony kultcha. Anyone else calling nigglers nigglers - systemic wacism.

Actress whose face you can't see on a moonless night playing Snow White - genius. Blackface actors playing black faced characters - hideous wacism.

And so the hypocrisy and race baiting dung hill grows and grows.

The Importance of Being Earnest - made in 1952, starring Michael Redgrave, Michael Denison, Edith Evans, Richard Wattis, Margaret Rutherford, Joan Greenwood, Dorothy Tutin, Walter Hudd, Miles Malleson, Aubrey Mather.  I watched it for Margaret Rutherford mainly, being an old fan of hers.  It is obviously a film of the play by Oscar Wilde, made up of an English farce, between Jack and his friend Algernon and their respective girl friends, all over Jack's real name.  He calls himself Jack, in the country and Earnest in town.  A marvelous exploration of English upperclass manners, well worth watching.  Joan Greenwood also shines.  I'd give it 9 out of 10.


Great movie.  A classic.

I've seen the play a few times too.

Remember seeing the play back in the '90s here in Australia and Lady Bracknell was played by a very famous English actress from TV & film, but I can't quite remember who it was now   Undecided




Ncuti Gatwa cast in National Theatre production of The Importance of Being Earnest



Gatwa will play hedonistic bachelor Algernon Moncrieff in Wilde’s “trivial comedy for serious people” this winter. It marks his first major role in a theatre production since coming to fame on Netflix’s Sex Education and being cast as the 15th Doctor in the BBC’s science-fiction series.

Your typical upper class London man about town circa 1895. So believable. Shocked

The Media will have it in the schools for the kids that Europe was originally 'Black' before the 'White Lie'.

Ncuti Gatwa says he feels 'sad' for those tuning out of the new season of 'Doctor Who' because of its push for diversity


During an interview on NPR, the 31-year-old star said he finds it "really sad" that longtime fans of the show have chosen to stop watching in light of his casting and other decisions made to bid for inclusivity.

Ncuti Gatwa says he feels 'sad' for those tuning out of the new season of 'Doctor Who' because of its push for diversity.

The changes are also reflected in the show's streaming options. The newest episodes will air on Disney+ in most parts of the world. (Ah...)

The latest episodes also feature queer characters, representations of disabilities, and a multiracial cast, showrunner Russell T. Davies told the Daily Beast.

On his decision to promote inclusivity on the show, he told the outlet: "You can't be too old to not learn. You've just got to keep your eyes and your mind open to try to make the world better."

It's not making the world a better place.
