Persians Were White: Disney

The Walt Disney Corporation has been forced to make some uncomfortable truths known about the racial makeup of ancient Persians, after modern-day Persians planned to boycott the company’s big-budget summer movie over the race of its lead actor.

“Persians were very light skinned. […] The Turks kind of changed everything. But back in the 6th century, a lot of them were blond and blue-eyed,” Disney executives quoted Jerry Bruckheimer as saying, reports

Some modern-day Persians are not happy with the fact that Disney’s big summer vehicle, Prince of Persia, has a White European, Jake Gyllenhaal, as its lead actor.

"If we went back in time, all Iranians would look like Jake Gyllenhaal"

Bruckheimer’s little-known historical detail was confirmed by Disney’s Middle Eastern consultant, who has reached out to skeptical cultural organizations to insist that Prince of Persia is the “anti-300.

The movie 300 was sharply criticized by Persians as carrying an anti-Iranian message.

“If we went back in time 1,700 years to the mythological era, all Iranians would look like Jake Gyllenhaal,” note the Disney Middle Eastern consultant.

However, notes most of the extras in the Prince of Persia trailer are swarthy in color.


  • If the lead is Jake Gyllenhaal, maybe they can call it “Brokeback Tehran” and end the controversy.

  • Couldn’t you find more goodlooking than Jake Gyllenhaal?

    Most of the people of Iran today are still Caucasian, and yes some are mongoloid because of the Mongols invading Iran and killing hundreds of thousands of them. But most are still purely White, and they have both dark complected and light complected whites!
