    You want blacks? Okay, try Hotel Rwanda, Bang Bang Club, and Timbuktu, among others. Stop trying to force blacks into history they weren’t actually in.

    ^ Not so much about race as about a fantasy world-view runnin’ smack-dab into historical reality.

    Althoughhh…
    I loved jungle movies and serials as a kid (Tarzan, Tim Tyler’s Luck, Ramar…).
    Looking back, they needed more South-Sea Islanders, Jews, Orientals, handicapped, Slavs, LS/MFTs, etc. in the native populations. And wild animals should’ve won when wrestling Tarzan, once in a while.

    I can imagine a SJW whining: “Look at all those privately-owned boats that picked up the soldiers! Why can’t they do the same thing today for all those poor, deserving Muslim immigrants waiting in France to get to England?

    Shows someone is paying attention.

    Dunkirk or: let’s put all the attractive, white, British males in one movie

    What comes to mind when I see the trailer for Dunkirk? A boring war movie with a bunch of white dudes. #nothanks

    I assume the guys bitching about a female-directed female-driven film will be first in line for Dunkirk, a movie starring only white guys.

    OF course, that’s about as hard as predicting your dog will eat your steak if you drop it on the floor.

    I guess no one understands history any more? The entire European theater of operations was countries full of white people fighting each other. And, outside of the USSR, women didn’t go into combat. So it was white guys fighting white guys. Why is this even an issue? That’s what happened, period.

    Even in the African campaigns it was still that way. They just happened to be northern Africa. There were next to no “POC” in the armies fighting until the USA got into it, and the roles such men played have been subject to major PC historical revisionism.

    I just don’t understand people under 35 anymore.

    ^^ Actually, the British did have some nonwhite troops, drawn from across their Commonwealth, notably India. Varied by theater.

    One interesting nugget: as the US troops moved off the Normandy beaches, they captured a small number of folks in German uniforms who didn’t speak German, and looked distinctly non-European. Turns out they were Koreans. The Japanese had drafted some over in the Pacific, and they got captured by the Soviets. The Soviets moved them west to the Eastern front, where they in turn were captured by the Germans, who then re-purposed them into the Wehrmacht.

    The women, LBGT and colored whiners can fix future historical films to suit them by going to Iraq, Afghanistan, Nigeria or wherever there is an ongoing armed conflict, tote a ruck and a gun for a year or two, then in twenty years or so, if they survive, they might see a historical movie cast to their liking.

    In the future movie, their ilk would most likely be the KIAs.

    You want racial diversity in a war film?

    Than you want Zulu!

    And if you want Zulu!, than you want the British blu-ray. Beautifully restored, and region free!

    Used to cost about $20 to get it from the UK. The links above will get you an Amazon copy for about $13. Amazing! What a bargain!

    “People of color”? Why would art majors have been at Dunkirk?
