Prince of Persia my foot!...

I'm appalled at what I've seen from the film Prince of Persia! I mean, did you know Jake Gyllenhaal isn't even Persian ( What's up with that? How can somebody who's not Persian play a Persian, it's insulting! And I'm not alone on this, blogger Jehanzeb Dar (Sounds Persian, maybe he should play the part) says that "this part really needed to go to somebody who's Persian. It's not only insulting to Persians (cause this movie is based on actual events), it's also insulting to white people (That's right Jehanzeb, break down those racial barriers by referring to people as their different ethnicity's). It's saying white people (hey, I'm white!) can't enjoy movies unless the protagonist is white (...)." I agree completely, I for one don't judge my movies on whether the lead is white (I love me some Tyler Perry films) and I am shocked that Disney blatantly comes out and makes me feel that way (and apparently Persians and all white people...). So here's my message to Disney: just because Jake Gyllenhaal was the best choice doesn't mean you should choose him (because you should obviously hire people based only on their race).

  1. Yes,
    I must say that when I was watching the movie I was distribed and distracted during the entire movie because I felt like something was off with the characters, now I know why, because he's not really Persian... AH! I now have a focus for my frustrations with the movie... right...

  2. Righto, righto. I haven't seen it yet, but I'm sure it will bother me too.
