Default When the left has gone so far off the cliff that Will Smith is "not black enough"

How have we gone this astray as a society?

Quote:
Following The Legend of Bagger Vance and Ali, Will Smith is reportedly in talks to take on another sports film. Deadline reports that the Oscar-nominated actor is “poised to play” Richard Williams, the father of Venus and Serena Williams, in an upcoming biopic titled King Richard.

While Smith certainly has the star power to headline the film about Williams’s determination to turn his two Compton-raised daughters into tennis champions, his rumored casting has already been met with some backlash. While Smith and Williams are both black men, critics say the role should go to an actor with darker skin, citing Idris Elba and Mahershala Ali as examples of more appropriate choices.

Some have compared the casting reports to ZoŽ Saldana’s portrayal of singer Nina Simone in the 2016 biopic Nina, for which the actress controversially wore dark makeup and a prosthetic nose. Others have brought up Scarlett Johansson, whose role in 2017’s Ghost in the Shell sparked accusations of whitewashing.

“Colorism matters,” sports writer Clarence Hill Jr. said of the importance of casting an actor with darker skin to play the 77-year-old Williams.

If you're on the left, how do you keep track of what is and isn't OK and what you are supposed to be protesting for and against?

Who makes all the rules?

Maybe because Smith has more range and known roles in a wide variety of films and makers are comfortable?

Who cares. Jesus.

The first and only question I have is has this guy contributed anything constructive or otherwise useful to society? I really have doubts unless presented evidence otherwise.

Leftists cannot survive long unless everything is another outrage.

The Leftists, who are outrageous way beyond Progressives -
That was a COMPLIMENT, Progressives. Progressives and Conservatives have always been able to debate a point and how to get to a common goal. To the Leftists, there is no debating. They are bat-shit crazy [NO COMMON GOALS] and will not work outside of their little insanity.

I agree with other post too. Political On Topic.

This is beyond stupid, and I have long since had it with all of 'today's' bullshit.

The problem is the moral majority that is fed up with this BS can't speak against it without fear of being labeled by the left and losing their livelihood. With social media, it's is a very real possibility that people can lose their job by posting opposing options to bullshit like this. As a society I think we're not as bad as it looks in media. At least I hope not.
