    It's the new norm, every classic character will now be portrayed by a black, Cedric the entertainer as Ralph cramden, will smiths son as Daniel larusa, will smiths daughter as Annie :facepalm:

    This will go over better than the remake of Rockford Files with Durmut Mulrooney, a few years ago.....that I just heard about yesterday.

    Have you never seen remakes of classic Japanese films with white American actors? Does this offend you as well?

    Are these films marketed primarily to Japanese audiences?

    No I haven't, and I didn't say it offends me I just said it was the new norm. If they can make the films better with black actors so be it but they haven't yet so fuck them and their shitty cast

    it's far from the norm. There are probably 10-20 recurring black characters on television, and more like 1-2 leads on major networks.

    do you object to white singers recording (stealing) the work of black musicians?

    why isn't it? music, TV, film, theater, all arts. Take an iconic song sung by a black person and give it to a white person ---take an iconic role played by a white person and give it to a black person. :dontknow:
