Also, kind of funny and mind blowing, but the Indian scientist in Short Circuit back in the day was white. Huh.


In the Netflix show Masters of None, Aziz Ansari devotes an whole episode to this topic and they mention this movie among others

I have no issues with it. But I also have no issues with it the other way too.

It’s art. Sometimes you want to use blue, sometimes you want to paint it green.

There's a difference between prefering to do an ethnic story follow by casting the ethnic cast and to do an ethnic story but casting a white actor to perform the ethnic role

So are you opposed to the casting of a black actor to play George Washington in Hamilton? George Washington was white.

I’m not. I understand it can get dicey at times, but to me that is an acceptable consequence of giving artists the freedom to create their art and tell their story.

I tend to lean towards artistic freedom with things like this. I've never seen Hamilton, but it seems like the race of the cast seems to be part of the artistic purpose of it. (bleep) like this only serves to exacerbate racial tensions as well, and there's already too much of that going on.

If you don’t like it, don’t watch it. You can always change the channel (err, stream, haha).

There’s no other reasonable alternative. I mean, we don’t want to start legalizing types of art IMO.
