Agreed, let actors act, but statistically, having black or Asians play leading roles like Romeo is much, much less likely to happen. There are far more Caucasian actors playing blackface or yellowfare roles, witness Scarlett Johansson recently in Ghost in the Shell as Motoko Kusanagi and Emma Stone in Aloha as Alison Ng. If there were some semblance of equal opportunity here, then it’s no big deal, but there is not.
