All I ask for is consistency.
Honestly, I don't give a shit about this shit, but if there was a historical, mythological, or fictional character that was black (Spawn, for instance) re-imagined as a white guy, the outrage of the liberal media and interest groups would be like an anvil to the testicles.
I think it would be a little more ridiculous if they were to cast a black man as, say, Abraham Lincoln, but as a Norse God why anyone would care, I don't know. As an aside, Gerard Butler was cast as Attila the Hun in a relatively high-profile made for TV movie several years ago - didn't hear any bitching about that from the Council of Conservative Cunts. Fuck 'em.
