Oh my God Uther, you can't just ask people why they're white!
I bear witness that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) is his messenger.

I feel personally offended by this movie. Thanks to the convenient help of questionable historical sources my distant ancestors may or may have not been Egyptian. Therefore, this movie is appropriating my culture :(

On a serious note, I have no idea how Hollywood managed to take a distinctly Egyptian setting and still have a near all-white cast. Like, imagine if I made a movie on Ancient Greece and all the Greek characters were black, I mean, wouldn't you question that decision for even a moment?

White English speaking Egyptians? Is this the future?

I do not know if you have noticed this or what, but I have recently seen that Middle-Eastern/North African people are being labelled as "white" on surveys/tests. That's kinda the same thing as this.

You don't know how hard I'm trying to resist the Mean Girls references.

It seemed so historically accurate too. All that gritty realism completely ruined by one little missed detail...

Like 300, just minus the realism and an overload on the gritty (The entire movie was like one big instagram filter.
