    What absolute tosh. The double standards with regard to this is unreal, when a black man is cast in a white role its diversity, when a white man is cast as a black guy that literally WAS white at this point it's "offensive and disrespectful".

    I wouldn't mind, if he didn't have a skin condition that made his skin look white then I'd say it's a legitimate concern, just as the reverse is also unacceptable in my opinion (black men cast as white characters.)

    ""But it's absolutely inexcusable for a film to whitewash a movie based on an actual human being, whether his appearance was typical of what we expect a black man to look like or not."

    Oh that's ok then, so when someone accuses me of having 'white privilege', can I tell them they're wrong because I identify as a black man?
