Gee guys, it's not like Hollywood has EVER made changes to a supporting character before...

There is nothing about the character of Perry White that indicates that he HAS to be caucasian. Nothing.
Yeah there is, he's white in the comics. Why do they have to go the affirmative action way? If he was black in the comics, then he should be black on screen. It's simple, stick to what the character is in the comic. So far this is the only casting descision I disagree with. I think he's a great actor and will play the part well, but I can't stand when they pick a black actor or a female actor just because some group complained or because they think they have too because they don't want to offend anyone. They feel they have to be PC., it's rediculous.
Perry White was introduced on the RADIO. What color was he? What is rIdiculous is the assumption that "they pick a black actor or a female actor just because some group complained". That completely undercuts your argument that he is a great actor.
