Churchill movie

Recommended Posts

Seen it - pretty good, except for the blatant social justice warrior insertion of a black londoner on the tube in 1940 who has a speaking part.  There is also a black passer by in a scene outside of whitehall.  Black population of London in 1940's was about 10,000 (before the GIs arrived etc) out of 7-8 million people, so 0.001 percent were black at the time.

Why the fuck do they continue to shoehorn non whites into British history?

I'm pretty sure 20 years from now Winston Churchill will widely accepted as being Black once the SJW's have re-written the History text-books.

Obviously Hitler will stay White.

Don't have a problem with that per se. With 10k people of colour in London that's possible ?

Black people have come a long way in London since 1940s.

Amazing to think nowadays they can school Prince Harry to do fisting in Brixton.

Yes and no.  

In the whole film, you see maybe 1000 people on the streets of London and in interior shots.  To be historically accurate, especially away from the docks area (where most black londoners were), you would not see a black face, let alone two.  If you did, he would not have a good cockerney accent as in the film, but a west indian or african one as he would have been from the commonwealth.  If Churchill spoke to him, as happens in the film, the first question would have been 'and where in the commonwealth are you from' not to ignore skin colour.

The character was clearly inserted in response to a political viewpoint, not to reflect history.  It's as if I remade Shaka Zulu and made a couple of the Impi warriors white welsh blokes.

Nonsense, in that Dr Who episode where they went back to the Frost fairs the population was 50% black

Look at it another way - so they can slowly shoe-horn white people out of British life?

In 30-40 years time, when someone decides to make a film about Chuchill, they'll probably feature some women in burkas.

Looking forward to seeing this,  after watching Dunkirk recently

Check out 'Their Finest' on Netflix. Set in 1940 and Involves the making of a propaganda movie about Dunkirk.

'Churchill wasn't black' 

Of course Churchill was black, have you ever seen anyone called Winston who was not black. Lloyd George was also black for the same reason.

No doubt some chubby, bespectacled short-haired female academic in the University of East Hounslow is writing her thesis on London's Islamic women of WW2, and how there were many of them...or at least several - possibly hundreds, but they were kept out of the history books (and photographs, and personal accounts) by racist white men.

I enjoyed it to a point, the Tube scene was rubbish, the chances of him finding a black man in 1940's London that could quote Macaulay! The whole scene was cringe worthy, which was a shame as the rest of the film was pretty good.

Regiments - even WW1 and at the Somme.

Didn't they play football with the Germans at Christmas.

Just got back from the cinema - my thoughts exactly. The idea that Churchill was considering peace until he met 10 people on a tube is utter bollocks and tainted the entire film

That would likely be to justify all the deaths of average people who would travel by tube.   

They voted for it.  It's baloney.

Like they voted for all the rubbish that has happened in recent years.

Double barrel surname dead giveaway. Probably had a trial for Brentford too.
