Attention, white people: Your friends at the racist-as-hell Council of Conservative Citizens want you to boycott the new Thor movie. Why? Because a black actor has been cast as a Norse god! It's an "insulting multi-cultural make-over"! Wait, what?
Idris Elba, who played Stringer Bell in The Wire, was cast as the Norse god Heimdall in Shakespeare weenie Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of the classic Marvel comic Thor. What a great role for a terrific, under-appreciated actor! Is what you'd say... if you hate white people.
You see, Elba is black—while Heimdall was, well, I guess he wasn't actually white, since he never, you know, existed. And also, the movie is technically about a fictional character, from comic books, based very loosely on a Norse god. I guess he was, like, worshipped, by white people? But who cares! We do know one thing for sure: Idris Elba is black. Insulted yet, white people? The Council of Conservative Citizens sure is!
It seems that Marvel Studios believes that white people should have nothing that is unique to themselves. An upcoming movie, based on the comic book Thor, will give Norse mythology an insulting multi-cultural make-over. One of the Gods will be played by Hip Hop DJ Idris Elba.
Not... not... a Hip Hop DJ! Unfortunately for the white race, the joke is on the council: Everyone is going to boycott Thor, because it looks really dumb.
