Meryl Streep faces backlash over ‘we’re all Africans’ comment

As well she might.  An absurd assertion.  I can assure one and all that I am not an African

MERYL Streep is facing a backlash over a controversial remark she made while discussing diversity in the film industry, saying “we’re all Africans really”.

Streep, who heads a festival film jury at the Berlin International Film Festival, was asked by an Egyptian reporter whether she understood films from the Arab world and North Africa, to which she responded: “I’ve played a lot of different people from a lot of different cultures.

“There is a core of humanity that travels right through every culture, and after all we’re all from Africa originally,” she added. “You know, we’re all ... Berliners, we’re all Africans really.”

The remark sparked outrage on social media, with “Meryl Streep” becoming a worldwide trending topic on Twitter.

While some said her remarks were taken out of context, others were upset by the comment.

I guess she was trying to say that since, according to some evolutionist fairly tales, we evolved from Africa, that we are all Africans.

They are not "evolutionist fairy tales". A million or two million years ago, humans were only in Africa, but that does not make us all Africans now. Humanity evolved after moving out of Africa.

Couldn't care less what Meryl Stoop says. Just another standard issue Hollywood dolt. Btw, recent discovery's have disproved the notion that all humanity began in Africa.

Humanity began in the 'Fertile Crescent' between the rivers Euphrates and Tigris. These are not in Africa.

Regardless of where humans might have first appeared, it is an insult to tell Berliners that they are all Africans really, as if they should just accept their country being invaded by Arabs and Africans as if its some sort of family reunion.

Merrill Streep might think differently if it was herself and her female family members who in her own country had to run the gauntlet through mobs of hundreds of invasive Muslim Arab men groping and pulling them and pushing their fingers into private places.

Or perhaps she wouldn't think differently. A lot of leftists are happy to be mistreated and even die at the hands of those who hate the west, so they can look ultra good right and superior in aligning with them and continuing to criticise the west.

It takes something special to change a committed leftists heart. If it can even be changed.

It looks like Bird of Paradise is suffering from a severe case of “Rectal Cranial Inversion”. It’s quite a common affliction you know, only known cure is to accquire a open mind.

I am impressed! You actually used a spell checker. However, you could have put a comma after the word, "you." There is still hope for you.

Alpha Skua can't have used a spell-checker, as it's "amoeba" not "ameoba". It's also "An amoeba" not "A ameoba". I guess a pea-brain is smarter than this bird-brain!
