The Persians from the movie 300 were from a massive empire of all sorts of people and nations that got conquered. He acts as an emmisary of the Persians, but that doesnt mean he actually is Persian.

i ******* hate that movie for that reason. i'm half black, half white, and the amount of stupidness concernin race just pisses me off >_> that movie choice was an example. katara and sokka were supposed to be inuits or eskimos or something. sokka was something like chinese (his uncle makes me think so. a lot of the characters are based off of chinese culture, even fighting styles)
User avatar #133 to #132 - sefercil ONLINE (03/16/2012) [-]
pardon, i meant zuko was supposed to be like some sort of chinese influenced race

In 300 (where he's black), he is necessarily a Persian messenger. The Persians had one of the largest empires, which spead into Africa and parts of Caucasian Europe. Therefore, there could be European (white) Persians along with African (black) Persians. The messenger was black, Xerxes was Arabic, and during the fight scenes you could clearly see white, arabic, and black soldiers all fighting together.

Xerxes was a Persian from the Achaemenid dynasty not Arab.Although Im sure Arabs were a part of the empire It did span 3 continents.

300 was right about how Persia controlled a vast part of the world, and therefore had warriors from everywhere. Which is what I said. Nothing else.

Movies are for entertainment. If you want 100% historical accuracy you can watch documentaries about aliens on the history channel.

Homer claims that the Persian army had millions. The Spartans held these millions at Thermopylae for 3 days. No one knows how many they have actually killed. But in the end the 300 were overwhelmed. Oh and the Persians lost the war.
#141 to #109 - drcroccer (03/16/2012) [-]
Homer's numbers are almost certainly made up though. The notion of an invading army of millions of soldiers at that time is completely ******* . Getting millions of troops with anything short of conscription would've been impossible. An invasion army of one million alone would've composed 2% of the entire Achaemenid population, and that's not including all the other soldiers necessary for defending the frontiers and towns of such a vast empire. To put it into perspective, only about 0.8% of the Roman empire's population at its height were under arms, and the vast majority of that small percentage were local auxilia tasked with frontier defence, rather than the legions.

Logistically, it would have been completely impossible. Let's not forget that major cities of Antiquity like Rome and Athens were in constant need of food, and quite frequently had shortages. Rome, the heavily centralized capital that at its height would've had over a million people, was constantly struggling to get enough supplies, requiring huge, near-industrial production of grain from the periphery to support it. A standing army even bigger than this megacity would've been impossible to support, even if all the food in the entire empire were confiscated.

It's certain that the Persians would've outnumbered the Greeks (not just the Spartans, they formed only a small part of the several thousand Greeks gathered there), but most modern estimates are between 100.000 - 300.000. The Greek defence remains remarkable, and the Spartan sacrifice heroic, but completely silly notions like the Persians invading with 5 million men (according to Herodotus), 10% of their population, and nearly twice the entire number of soldiers of both sides in the American Civil War shouldn't be seriously considered, and seen for the fables that they are.

The temporary fall of the Byzantine Empire due to the fall of Constantinople to the Fourth Crusade?

The Persian empire under Darius and later Xerxes stretched into modern day Libya where there are black people
#150 to #139 - anon (03/16/2012) [-]
yeah that makes perfect sense look at gadafi for example he is totally not north african he is black
User avatar #167 to #139 - tinglyturtletaint (03/17/2012) [-]
But the main part of the empire was where Iran is today
#193 to #167 - Uranium (03/17/2012) [-]
Thats very true but its understandable are you gonna send a Persian to go parlay with a warrior king to hand over rule of his kingdom that your father tried to invade not 40 years earlier? **** no send the ****** to do it.

Yes and everyone in that movie is the complete opposite with their characters in therms of characteristics.

The actor that played Aang is the only one that kinda resembles their character.

M. night buttnugget totally ruined that movie. The cartoon series and books are so awesome and he made them suck.....a lot. A lot of suck took place in that movie.

Well the movie didn't cover the entire series either. If they make more movies (which I hope they don't under M. Night Shayalmaladingdong) Zuko just might be white at the end
