Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

^^ In the past, Asian characters like Charlie Chan were portrayed by White actors, a practice that is now considered racist-- by the same political demographic that wants historically White characters to become "Black Like Me."

I have no patience with the trend of re-casting White characters as Black or Asian or female or whatever. It's not just politically correct, it's condescending. Women and minorities are not second-class citizens. The powers that be should be adding diversity to their fictional universe, not making shallow cosmetic changes.
