History Channel portrays Hannibal as Black; Whites are outraged

Photo: HistoryChannel/BarbariansRising

History Channel‘s newest documentary series, “Barbarians Rising,” explores the fall of Rome over the course of 700 years of invasions. However, the most recent episode that aired Monday depicts Hannibal of Carthage as a Black man, and many White history “aficionados” are accusing the station of promulgating “historical inaccuracies.”

In the series, Hannibal is portrayed by Black British actor Nicholas Pinnock. The famous Carthaginian was a thorn in the empire’s side. He became a general at the age of 26 and managed to unite barbarian tribes to stop Rome’s imperial rise. The military genius was arguably most famous for climbing the Alps with war elephants whose sole purpose was to stomp the Roman army.

Hannibal ultimately tried to invade Rome but failed to do so.

There have been debates over the race of Hannibal throughout the centuries. And this debate still continues till this day.

Take a look at the video trailer for this episode of “Barbarians Rising” that features Hannibal before checking out some responses to the general’s dark hue.

Here are some YouTube comments that were left below the clip:

    Not outraged, I just want to watch it now! One of my best jokes ever was when my boyfriend all those years ago took his friend with us to climb a mountain and his friend was cocky and didn’t work out so I was behind him on this steep slope and yelled up “I feel like I’m climbing behind Hannibal’s Army”… he got that I was saying he was slow as a herd of elephants instantly, it was the best revenge for all the little jabs he had thrown at me over the years! ;D

    Ultimately it doesn’t matter what color they show him as, if it sparks someone’s interest in the story they will do their own research.

    White people have portrayed blacks and all other races since the beginning of movies. Get over yourselves ! The very fact that his race is not known with 100% accuracy leaves the role open to whichever actor lands the part.

      @Mrwoods13 Actually his race is known. Just like 99.9% of historical/ancient figures true race is known. However whites have to lie and implant themselves in to history to cover up the that fact, that they have no true history. Other than popping up 6,000 yrs ago from the caves of the Caucus Mountains.

        Thanks darling for making the point of the cave dwelling tail people have no history. Okay give them some credit. They introduced savagery, slavery, diseases, and death so they are responsible for some things. Lol

          Lol, exactly! Can’t blame them though. I would probably do the same if my own scientist say I was subhuman (Neanderthal and rhesus monkey dna).

          In addition, to not having absolutely
          zero contributions to civilization. Other than the things you mentioned.

            of course we have neanderthal dna in us. so what? where is the problem? the neanderthaler had a bigger brain than the homo sapiens and was physically superior, so this is actually super power dna lül

            “It indicated that Neanderthal and modern human brains were the same
            size at birth, but that by adulthood, the Neanderthal brain was larger
            than the modern human brain.” Source: http://voices.nationalgeographic.org/2008/09/09/neanderthal/

            Evidence suggests they were much stronger than modern humans, with particularly strong arms and hands

            i was just making fun actually with that super human stuff. but they had indeed bigger brains and where physically stronger. no one actually doubts it. except a delusional moron like you maybe (because of a hell lot a idiots claiming that egyptians were black and that white people had stolen civilisation lol. civilisation doesnt no race, there are civilisations in every corner around the world who arose.)

            First the Neanderthal wasn’t a humanoid, they were more of an animal. Which is why whites are RH POSITIVE. Meaning that they have animal pathogens in their blood. Which either came from the Neanderthal or whites breeding with monkeys.

            Whites have no history or contribution to civilization. Everything is fabricated to hide their origin as savages in a cave. Which is why you have this recent push, although extremely delusional. To lie and say Egyptians were white. Even though European DNA cannot be carbon dated to time the pyramids were built.

            Most whites are not that delusional to believe that. So it’s not worth any thought other than this post. Scientist are now claiming the Neanderthal were smart due to their large brain. In a effort to help low white self esteem.

            Noone who is considered a reputable scientist would claim the aforementioned When the Neanderthal left absolutely zero evidence of this genuis.

            It’s just babble from people such as yourself who struggle because of a low IQ. So low tbat your are more or less classified as a functioning retard!

That’s why you are so vile, evil, inhumane, sadistic and insidious demonic.You are the weakest crayon in the box. Your whiteness cannot change the color of any other crayon. Yet ALL of the other colors will change you weak ass devils. That’s why you are so busy trying to kill the black man. You know that your stupid women will continue to have sex with the brothas until there are no white people left. The thing that the white man fears most in the world is: UNITY within the black community, and the black man’s penis

            Neanderthals are sub human, do your research. Also brain size has nothing to do with the gift we call intelligence. The brain is a muscle, and it develops like any other muscle depending on how much you exercise it. It’s not how big it is, it’s how much of it you use. Your brain could be bigger than another persons, but if they know how to use and access more of theirs than you do, they will have a greater amount of intelligence. The sperm whale has the biggest brain of all mammals, but I would argue it is not as intelligent as the average kid raised in the rain forest. Those old myths and the propaganda used for centuries have now been debunked many times. We can all see Trumps head is bigger than Obama’s, but it is obvious to the average human, who is more intelligent between the two. And I can assure you it is not the one with the greatest part of Neanderthal DNA.

    Why does rollingout try to turn everything into racebaiting wars?

    99% of the past few articles are in some way race baiting anti-white hating vomit trash.
    Sure, we know there are racist whites, but they could just as easily post the same about blacks.
    Or asians.
    Or chinese.
    Or any other race.

    Fact is, plenty of material exists on any group, if you want to focus exclusively on that.
    Since rollingout has chosen to focus only on their perception that all the problems are caused by whites & whites alone, everyone should boycott them.

    $$$ talks, & they shouldn’t make a dime till they start reporting the truth in a fair & balanced way.
    Blacks have problems, whites have problems, spanish have problems, asians have problems.
    But to hear them speak, you’d think whites caused every problem in the world.

    Which is simply not so.
    These MSM terrorists should have their media passes revoked!

      ah unfortunately they did. The 1st problem they created was the renaming of our motherland to Africa which was the name of a white man. Then they went into Africa and stole, looted, murdered and renamed almost all of it. They destroyed and enslaved entire races then they went in to all the countries of Africa and colonize them by force ultimately they were driven out but not before they sowed the seeds of Discord they created cancer they created AIDS they created most diseases they created Ebola I can continue on they created nuclear weapons Mass weapons of Destruction I can continue our political system is so corrupt it’s a shame our founding forefathers were rapists and slave owners yeah I think they did cause all the problems in the world

      Pure white? Jesus was not white at all. The Middle East as they call it today was all a part of AFRICA. What the heck would make you think that Jesus was even a little white? The Bible describes him as having hair of wool and feet of bronze. Sounds like a nappy haired black man to me. What do you think? Oh, I know what you think.

      Funny thing about the Jewish people is that they don’t even pretend that they are original. That’s why they call themselves JewISH. That is also why they do not like being called Jews.
      They are mountainous Europeans who pillaged a culture and identity from the black man. The original Jews are black Hebrews who studied Judaism. Jewish people should never use the word Semitic to describe themselves, because you would have to be a descendent of Shem to be semitic, and white people are not descendents of Shem. It’s a damn shame that the white man is so damn culture-less that they had to resort to pillaging/thievery for everything that they have today.

    Any part of history that portrays an entity with strength, valor, intelligence, and any other attributes deemed admirable, whites attach themselves to it somehow. The Caucasian are Neanderthal sub humans out of caves. They are in a great part selfish and their insecurity and inferiority is what drives them to do evil things in order to steal,kill and manipulate. One of their greater sin into depict Christ as he is called in America as a blond hair blue eyed deity. Whites have even claimed that Egyptians from the old world are white. I am married too an North African Moor. Moors come in various shades, but the most dominant is the beautiful golden skin color that is a shade of brown. We know that there is empirical evidence that Africa is the birthplace to the first man, but somehow whites seem to believe that every race has a purpose in God’s creation except blacks. The first thing king Solomon says is ” I am black but comely” we also know Moses wife was Africa. Blacks have created and contributed so much to this world, but the evil of the white man, tried to hide every good thing about our race. Look at the way Obama is persecuted by jealous insecure white men iin America. Like his politics or not, to say he is unintelligent is an insult to intelligent beings across the world. The father of Russian literature is black, most do nnot know this fact. Most terrorist attacks in America are commited by white men. Look at Las Vegas and others. Yet the white man is considered crazy when he commits crimes, and blacks are considered thugs. Jerry Lawson a black engineer is the pioneer of the personal video games. But you never hear about him in this white culture and world where they dominate militarily, and promote no other culture or accept any as valid except their own.
