    And by ‘diverse’ she means ‘black’, me , the whole trailer park, my inbred cousins and every pure white blood are so sick of the number of characters getting blackwashed or gender changed. Simply because ‘diversity’. Hollywood should stop forcing blacks down our throats. Just a month ago was devasted by cat woman casting and I will boycott it.

      I get what you mean. And thats Part of this so called trend. Except of creating diverse casts, they are just making old movies and exchange men with women or are making the movies all black. And personally, I think its the wrong route. Hollywood simply needs to start casting black actors, cause they are good and shouldnt make a trend out of black movies. And dont get me wrong, as I think the psychopathic commentators on this page will, black movies are no wrong. But all those remakes simply to make a black/female/Latin cast are wrong and the actors wont get the shine they deserve (e.g. that charmed remake no one asked for). The movies Lupita was in are all original and the black casts did not seem forced.

    Diversity shouldn’t be exclusive to Caribbean and African people playing Black American characters. American Descents of Slaves must fight for more diversity, inclusion and power — not for women or people of color, just Black American Descendants of Slaves. ADOS

    Except Catwoman has been black and white since the beginning. Eartha Kitt!
