Good idea, but I think that I would still be able to lip-read the English actors though.

"It is impossible to know whether I would be able to do the same with Hollywood movies, since I know English"

Mute button? (Of course I am aware that tone of voice is also part of expression, so to be fair you can mute the above clips also when comparing with whatever Hollywood clips you have in mind.)

Seems like complete horsesh!t. I was just rewatching these two videos:

It is remarkable how expressive the actors are (even the one with the subhuman browridge). I have not seen anything even remotely close in Hollywood (perhaps some counterculture works exist out there that can refute this). Even without understanding the language I am able to know what is taking place. It is impossible to know whether I would be able to do the same with Hollywood movies, since I know English, so perhaps we should compare using non-English language movies from Western countries. I still suspect the answer will be no, as I have noticed the common pattern in movies from Western countries is more talking and less expression (this in fact is a point of ridicule that I have heard non-Westerners use when criticizing these movies, i.e. "they just keep talking!").

What do you think?

How colonized is Kuwait?

A Kuwaiti media outlet has unveiled a virtual news presenter generated using artificial intelligence, with plans for it to read online bulletins.

“Fedha” appeared on the Twitter account of the Kuwait News website on Saturday as an image of a woman, hair uncovered, wearing a black jacket and white T-shirt.
The presenter’s blond hair and light-coloured eyes reflected the oil-rich country’s diverse population of Kuwaitis and expatriates, Boftain said. “Fedha represents everyone.”

One extremely annoying genre of video on YouTube I have come across is "reaction" videos of "Whites" reacting to music videos from non-Western countries. Of course the psychologically colonized idiots from those countries click on them and give them views/ad revenue. Here is a meme mocking this phenomenon (Pajeet is the racial slur for Indians, showing how these "Whites" view them):

'Oppenheimer' draws debate over the absence of Japanese bombing victims in the film
Viewers are divided, with many criticizing the lack of Japanese representation as the erasure of the hundreds of thousands of victims of Oppenheimer's creation.
“Oppenheimer” does little to challenge the long history of glorifying the work of white men, and risks perpetuating the persistent, often reductive, portrayals of Japanese victims in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
“But it is true that these institutions that are in positions of power, positions of influence, put more value on stories of men like Oppenheimer, like Truman, than it does on the Asian and indigenous communities that suffered because of decisions that those men made.”
“Even within the realm of entertainment it’s still demoralizing and making, once again, unreal the experience of Asian people,” said Brandon Shimoda, a Japanese American writer and curator of the Hiroshima Library.

Shimoda said that while the Japanese civilians and citizens are not included in the film, their absence makes a dangerous statement.
“I understand how showrooms and Hollywood cannot be all-encompassing. … But I think it also points societally to the lack of nonwhite, non-U.S. initiatives or perspectives,” said Stan Shikuma, co-president of the Seattle Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League.
To truly challenge the audience to contend with the horrors of the bombings, Shimoda said that narratives need to shift toward those who were impacted most.

“The experience and perspective of the hibakusha needs to be centered in whatever way possible,” he said. “There are people out there that are telling their stories in real time. The general white American relationship to that is to refuse those stories, and to turn instead to these dramatizations, which largely erase the people whose stories need to be told.”

Egyptian outrage: Black Cleopatra?
Controversy surrounds Queen Cleopatra VII's portrayal as a black African in a new Netflix docudrama series.  The debate over Cleopatra's race has sparked heated discussions, with conflicting opinions from historians, archaeologists, and the general public (plus Bassem Youssef!). In this video, we delve into the historical context of Cleopatra's life, the lack of concrete evidence about her ancestry and examine the accusations of erasing the Egyptian identity, as well as the casting choices and perspectives from the producer and actress. Join us as we unravel the complexities of Cleopatra's race and shed light on this intriguing and contentious topic.

Egyptian lawyer sues Netflix for depicting Cleopatra as Black woman
An Egyptian lawyer has taken legal action against the popular streaming platform, Netflix. The lawyer filed a case with the Public Prosecutor calling for the closure of the platform after the release of the trailer for the upcoming movie, "Queen Cleopatra."

The film depicts the Greek historical figure as a black-skinned woman, a portrayal that has caused controversy and sparked outrage in Egypt.

The lawyer argues that the depiction is historically inaccurate and offensive to the Egyptian people.

According to Egypt Independent, Mahmoud al-Semary demanded that all legal measures be taken against those responsible for the documentary and the management of the streaming platform for its participation in “this crime.”

The complaint submitted against the streaming platform alleged that "most of what Netflix platform displays contradicts Islamic and societal values and principles, especially Egyptian ones.", Greek city times reported.

The case said that the documentary promotes Afrocentrism that is widely spread on social media, which have slogans and writings aimed at distorting and obliterating the Egyptian identity.

The complaint continued addressing Public Prosecution: "In order to preserve the Egyptian national and cultural identity among Egyptians all over the world… we ask and seek you to take the necessary legal measures against this platform."

It demanded stopping broadcasts showing all works aimed at obliterating and distorting the Egyptian identity, through films aimed at falsifying and distorting history in Egypt.

Egyptian Eurocentrists expose themselves:

Netflix’s upcoming docudrama “Queen Cleopatra” in which Britain’s Adele James, who is of mixed heritage, plays the first-century Egyptian ruler as a queen with African roots is sparking an uproar in Egypt.

Egyptian academics are claiming that Cleopatra, who was born in the Egyptian city of Alexandria in 69 BC and belonged to a Greek-speaking dynasty, was of European descent and not Black. An Egyptian lawyer has reportedly filed a complaint demanding that legal measures are taken to block Netflix outright in Egypt, to prevent the show from airing.
There is no doubt among scholars that Cleopatra was Macedonian-Greek on her father Ptolemy XII’s side. But since the ethnic origin of her mother is not known, some historians say it’s possible that the Egyptian ruler’s mother was African and, therefore, that she could have been of mixed heritage.

The version I grew up with:

I'm guessing the Egyptian Eurocentrists wouldn't like this version much either?

"Does the same apply for hate?"

Hate is not evolutionarily adaptive. Bullying is:

"Could that logic also apply for makeup?"

I stand by what I said in my quote.

"Not only did they get the face shapes, but they even got the clothing too."

"society continues to delusionally think of bullying as learned behaviour rather than simply the normal behaviour of bully bloodlines"

Does the same apply for hate?

"High sexual dimorphism is inferior. Low sexual dimorphism is superior. How the low sexual dimorphism is achieved is for different societies to decide (probably based on practical considerations such as humidity etc.)."

Could that logic also apply for makeup? Because it seems like the issue is not only sexual dimorphism:

While I would disagree with someone who likes makeup on both males and females, I would not consider such a person aesthetically inferior as they at least have no gender-based double-standard. (I would consider still them ecologically/economically inferior, but that is a separate discussion.)

But looking at the NS Uniforms, uniformity seems just as important as the simplicity of dress. Maybe even more. And even with the western elements like collars and neckties, the uniforms still make up with its all black/brown/feldgrau theme. Agriculture fields are also just as superior.

Thanks for making it more clear. I apologize for asking so many questions, but I've been reading Aryanism and True Left since late 2010s that I have a lot of questions to ask.

*EDIT-This post was accidentally in quotations, so I edited it.

"Not only did they get the face shapes, but they even got the clothing too."

Sure, but I consider getting the face shapes more important, as the bullies' inferior clothes could be attributed (as False Leftists are prone to do) to what they learned from society, whereas their inferior face shapes can only be attributed to their blood. So long as society continues to delusionally think of bullying as learned behaviour rather than simply the normal behaviour of bully bloodlines, we will never end bullying. The only way to end bullying is to eliminate the bloodlines that produce bullies.

"even though you mentioned how superior long hair was here"

I did no such thing:

I hardly need to remind everyone that in pre-colonial times, long hair (including mullets!) was the American standard for males as well as females:

My point is that a society which considers long hair acceptable for males as well as for females is superior to a society which considers long hair acceptable for females but not for males.

To be clear, a society that considers long hair acceptable for both males and females is not superior to a society that considers long hair unacceptable for either males or females.

High sexual dimorphism is inferior. Low sexual dimorphism is superior. How the low sexual dimorphism is achieved is for different societies to decide (probably based on practical considerations such as humidity etc.).

I naively assumed that female soldiers had always been allowed to have buzz cuts. If buzz cuts are considered the most practical hairstyle for male soldiers, why not for female soldiers also?

Ever since I was a child, I did not understand why women's clothes did not have pockets while men's clothes did. Either pockets are a good idea, in which case they should be used by everyone, or they are a bad idea, in which case they should be used by no one.

Either bikini bottoms are more efficient, in which case men should also wear them, or else shorts are more efficient, in which case women should also wear them.

"Wouldn't you mind short hair"

Of course not! I myself have promoted short hair in the past:

"he even got the bullies' face shapes correct!"

Not only did they get the face shapes, but they even got the clothing too.

At 0:30, you'll see the girl on the right has a pleated skirt, a collared shirt, a visible necktie, earrings and for the hair, it looks pretty...graphic and even has a bow. The girl on the left has plain jeans, a basic shirt, hair that looks straight and unembellished and no earings.

At 1:16, you'll see the same girl with the teal cardigan next to a boy wearing a shirt with another visible collar and a sexually dimorphic haircut (still comparable with the girl on the left).

At 2:55 (which is the thumbnail), the man doing the pinching has a plain black outfit and hair where each strand is in harmony, while the one being pinched has a hair where the strands are all over the place.

At 3:18, the hair of the girl on the left is still as superior as it was before it was cut, and just like the man's hair, the strands of the girl's hair is simple and in uniformity. Not to mention their tops are also simple.

Just to be sure, does hair length matter? Because even though you mentioned how superior long hair was here:

Wouldn't you mind short hair if it coincides with everyone else, if it's low in maintenance and if it's cut for more temporary reasons (e.g. emulating individuals, cutting split ends without changing its current length)?

Support Yen!

Over 50,000 people have signed a petition demanding the Academy Awards Committee to withdraw its invitation to Donnie Yen to present an Oscar due to his support for the Chinese government.
They cited the “John Wick: Chapter 4” actor’s comments on the Hong Kong pro-democracy protests of 2019, which he called a “riot” in an interview with GQ last month.
The petition has amassed 52,256 signatures as of press time. One top comment reads, “He doesn’t stand up for freedom and democracy, which could violate the values of Oscar prizes.”

Yen deserves the invitation for this woke scene alone (he even got the bullies' face shapes correct!):
