One of the revelations that came out from the hacking of Sony was the contemplation by senior brass in the company of ditching Daniel Craig, the latest James Bond, in favor of Idris Elba, the British actor whose parents are from Benin republic in Africa. Immediately this was made known, many ‘whites’ are already up in arms against the idea. According to reports, the charge of the ‘whites’ are being led by drug abuser Rush Limbaugh, who according to the Huffingpost can’t stand the idea of a black man playing James Bond.
In the Huffpost article, Limbaugh is quoted as saying “James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was.” “But now [they are] suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland.”
“But that’s not who James Bond is,” he continued, acknowledging, “and I know it’s racist to probably point this out.”
On the other hand, Elba himself was quoted in an interview with NPR as saying that he didn’t want to be cast as James as the black James Bond. “Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond, and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond, so if I played him, I don’t want to be called the black James Bond.”
My question is what is wrong with playing the Black James Bond if there is a book written exclusively to enable a black play the Black James Bond? There is absolutely nothing wrong with that as I have written such a book in the “The Broederbond Conspiracy,” a book that was adapted by the San Francisco State University to teach students how to write a spy novel.
My question has been why do we always wait for ‘white’ people to do their things, and we want to barge in and demand that we be included? Why couldn’t we do our own thing, and let them barge in?
Hence, it was the idea when I started writing the “Broederbond Conspiracy,” as a counter to the ‘white’ James Bond.
Now Idris Elba will be perfect for the role of Chima Amadi in the Black James Bond as in the Broderbond Conspiracy. We don’t have to be continuously shamed and debased to begging for something when we can make our own utopia. I am ready to auction rights to “The Broederbond Conspiracy,” the Black James Bond.
