The Council of Conservative Citizens—successor to the hateful segregationist White Citizens Councils of the 1950s and 1960s, defended this week by Mississippi Gov. Barbour—have declared their intention to boycott the Marvel film following filmmakers' decision to cast Idris Elba as the Norse god Heimdall. Idris Elba is the award-winning British actor who shot to fame as Stringer Bell The Wire. And he is Black.
It’s not enough that Marvel attacks conservative values and promotes the left-wing, now mythological Gods must be re-invented with black skin. 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.
The Council insists "the American people and government should remain European in their composition and character". The bigots attempt to prove Heimdall's "true" likeness by posting drawings of Heimdall in classic mythology and Marvel’s version from 1960′s-era comic.
Says Idris Elba: "Thor’s mythical, right? He has a hammer that flies to him when he clicks his fingers. That’s OK, but the color of my skin is wrong?"
Psst: Heimdall wasn't actually white ... because he never existed.
