The thing is, Peter Parker is such a neutral character, his skin color makes no difference.
Perhaps not to you, but for a young child of color lacking in pop culture role models and positives influences, it could make a big different.
Just to be clear, I would have no problem at all with a black Spidey.

But when it's positive to have a black Spider-Man, is it detrimental when Spider-Man fights a black Electro? That's always my issue with the argument.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
