"New Christopher Nolan WWII Movie ‘Dunkirk’ Portrays White People as White, Runs Afoul of Diversity Police"

Via InstapunditIt used to be that high-profile Hollywood World War II movies got called out for taking liberties with the facts. These days, they’re getting in trouble for being too historically accurate.

Take The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan’s new movie Dunkirk, which recreates the defense and evacuation of British and Allied forces from Northern France in May-June 1940 during the early stages of the World War II.

The blockbuster stars Jack Lowden, Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy and, er, Harry Styles. It is set to be released July 21.

Plenty of people have taken to social media to express why they won’t be seeing it, and it’s all to do with the movie being “too white.” (Not sure if they’re aware, but the vast majority of British and Allied forces were white.)

Diversity police? That's inane.

The left are obsessed with skin color and white guilt. Nothing new- but its reached full insanity.

Leftists are racist.

I think the skin color issue, which is racism are the part of the observer, is just an excuse for those that see it as an icky war movie that "glorifies the allies, err war".

Full blown insanity is correct.

Ack, are err on. Main point is that I think Hollywood hates war movies unless it shows US troops as bad guys. Box Office tends to like them though.
