It's not a minor thing. Sooner or later, there is going to be a black Robin hood too. Like there were black Vikings, a black Cleopatra and other forgeries of history. :|

How do you know what Friar Tuck looked like? He was only a made up minute character in an ancient English folk tale.

As much as it is disturbing to witness the progress of multiculturalism pervading modern television, the introduction of a black Friar Tuck should not rattle too many cages considering blacks were present in major towns and cities of England from as early as the 12th Century. And many were not slaves or destitute, but travellers with religious importance and/or trading links.

A black Friar Tuck?! Wake me up when they turn the great Celtic god which Robin Hood is based upon into a broad smiling black. That would be "interesting".

Eh, I feel like there are more outrageous things going on than black men being cast in movies for what would have formerly been considered strictly white parts. I'm not too concerned. What it means ultimately is more frightening. Anyone else in the USA noticing more people on TV are black?

The Norwegians were referred to as "Black vikings" and the Danes as "White vikings." This was on account of the color they painted their shields.
Left to nature, negroes cannot survive in Northern Europe. The lack of vitamin D from sunlight causes several things; cancers, rickets, a low sperm count, a narrowed birth canal, death in child birth. This is why adaptive radiation evolved the "White type".
I have also noticed damp in Britain causes fungal and skin infections in Africans.
As for Cleopatra.

I could be wrong about this... but I've heard many many times that those of African background, and the Muslims as well, hate the northern nations. They have said many times that they hate England.. they hate Norway. They hate the climate, the food, so forth and so on. The only reason they stay is free money... and they really like the women :|

Well they aren't, and that is disgusting. My male friend is Norsk and he married a black American Woman and brought her back to Europe. People in Norway were unfriendly to her (children threw rocks at her in the Northern Seacoast area), so they moved to Copenhagen.

He is a member of a German noble house and now she is a baroness.

Afrocentrics believe the original Norse/Vikings were Black Africans.

You can read an old essay of mine below which has debunked such claims:

Yes, well, at least the children understand. Although I do not condone throwing things at your elders.

Maybe she'll be infertile? : )

This is 100% correct. Dark skin is inferior in cold snowy climate and it leads to Vitamin D deficiency.

Talking of ''adaptive'', white skin never adapated it is the original skin colour. The earth originally was a ball of ice and the Snowball earth hypothesis has been proven by findings of glacier deposits in Africa and South America.

I personally don't believe in Darwinism, but even if you take the fur off any monkey, ape, primate etc it is not dark. It is pink or white (the original skin colour).

Some modern scientists today are teaching the lie, white skin is a mutation that only happened 6,000-12,000 years ago.

He is typically remembered as Robin Hood's white, fat and balding companion.
But for the latest instalment of the BBC show, producers have reinvented Friar Tuck - as a black marital arts expert.
The fighting monk is played by Criminal Justice actor David Harewood, who had to undergo gruelling training sessions for the role.
The image overhaul appears to be keeping in line with some interpretations that Tuck was physically fit and 'proficient with clubbes and staves.'

But the radical transformation has sparked fury among professors who believe the portrayal is historically inaccurate.
English professor Helen Phillips, from Exeter University, told The Times: 'Sub-Saharan Africans wouldn't have been converted by that point, they would have had other religions. North Africans would have been mostly Muslims.
'Also, friars came from upper-class families, as did monks. The kind of families from which friars were drawn wouldn't have been in any sense African.'
Harewood, who was the first black actor to play Othello at the National Theatre, admits he found the idea ridiculous at first.

He said: ' I actually laughed.'
'My stunt double was a kind of capoeira champion and there's quite a lot of marital arts that my character does later on in the series, which was really, really fun to do and very physical.'

What ever happened to respect for culture and heritage, seems that only applies to Asian, black or any culture that isn't European.

There was a series of Oliver Twist on last year, and the main female character - Nancy i think she's called, was played by a black woman. I didn't think it very accurate...

BBC at it again
(http://www.bbc.co.uk/robinhood/characters/tuck.shtml)
Friar Tuck, a character previously omitted from the Robin Hood TV series by the BBC has been introduced. He's an african, skilled in martial arts (no doubt clever and wise). Really it's well beyond a joke.

Daily Mail article (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1165482/BBC-reinvent-fat-balding-Friar-Tuck-black-martial-arts-expert-new-series-Robin-Hood.html)

Hardly news I suppose, but how low can these traitors go. Every English child knew the story of robin hood and his associates.

I was under the impression that the powers that be are supposed to be hostile to historical revisionism, even taking legal action against those that dare to question the generally accepted or official versions of our (and everybody else's) history.

Whatever the historical facts about the existence and activities of Robin Hood and his merry men, it's certain that in the Thirteenth Century they would have been white Europeans.

Who's next for the sub-Saharan makeover? Oliver Cromwell? Winston Churchill? King Arthur? Perhaps I shouldn't be giving the BBC negrophile lovees ideas.

This reminds me of when I watched an episode of Merlin a few months ago. It was poor, so I haven't watched it since.

Something I noticed was that in the background a good number of the extras playing knights fighting in the tournament (and elsewhere in the programme) were black. Given that this programme was clearly developed for children (if you've watched you'll see that it's obvious it's aimed at a younger audience) then placing 'black knights' in the background, rather than the foreground where children might notice it, meant it would have had a more subliminal effect. An effect that might make children think blacks have been part of British society for centuries, and even occupying places of nobility. Combine it with all the other pluralist propaganda they're drip-fed everyday....

It reminded me of when I was at school, and was told about some of the 'brainwashing' techniques the National Socialists used on their children, such as putting anti-semitic scenarios in text-books, but using them for mathematical questions, to make the anti-semitism seem 'normal'.

One group used subtle methods to cement a political attitude in it's children. The other group.... used subtle methods to cement a political attitude in it's children.

...blacks were present in major towns and cities of England from as early as the 12th Century. And many were not slaves or destitute, but travellers with religious importance and/or trading links...

The numbers at that time, and until very recently (clearly shown by all the film and photographic records that still exist), were vanishingly small, practically non-existent. In 13th Century England a sub-Saharan would have been regarded at best as a savage, or even as something less than human. However, according to the BBC depictions even our smallest rural hamlets of that time were multicultural communities teaming with negroes. It's insulting offensive nonsense. The PC idiots responsible for producing this drivel should be fired. Our children deserve better than to have their understanding of their history distorted by such half-baked propaganda.

I actually liked this remake of Robin Hood, as I thought "At last, a good English folktale on the BBC!" My 13 year-old nephew is really into it, which I also found encouraging. But when I first saw the Black Friar - I had to laugh. It reminds me of that awful 10,000 BC film last year - Picture the scene: Eurasian landmass 12,000 years ago - I've never seen so many mixed race kids running about :(

He made the mistake of going to Egypt. I bet if he wasn't a supporter of Multiculturalism, that he could had found a nice wife in England, had a couple of grandchildren and died peacefully in his sleep.

Aside from the fact that he was described in that tale? Well, the fact that it was an ancient English folk tale about events and people in England tells us that none of them was a Bantu.

So, I was unaware that the BBC had done this and just started watching the third season online. I'm pretty pissed off not only did they spend the last two seasons telling us how advanced the Arabs supposedly were now Friar Tuck is black. Not only is he black he looks like freaking Homo Erectus, seriously. I am having trouble putting my anger into words. Growing up Robin Hood has always been my hero I love Robin Hood, I even started practicing archery when I was 8 becasue Robin Hood was my hero. I am so irritated and I'm rambling and could ramble about this for three pages so I'm just going to stop now. Oh and that link to the black Beowulf with dreads is infuriating as well.

To be honest, I think it’s been a lousy series from the beginning.

Worst Robin Hood ever, Maid Marian a fat cow, boring stories, fourth-rate PC undertones throughout.

In my opinion, the last decent Robin Hood on television was the 1980s ‘Robin of Sherwood’ series, at least that had some believable elements of paganism and witchcraft in it, and didn’t feel like a spoof.

It definetely wasn't great and a lot of things in it made me go 'huh' but it was fairly watchable before bed when I'm trying to clear my head. The black friar was the last straw for me with the pc garbage though.

I actually thought that Marian was kinda hot, but that's just me :D.

I'll have to check out Robin of Sherwood.
