Trevor Noah is South African and can speak Xhosa, but I would never support him being cast as Shaka Zulu, for example. I get that people need to work, but there are plenty of roles which can be any race. If a character is specifically supposed to be one ethnicity or another, casting should reflect that as much as possible, and using actors who are half-white for a character that is not is a subtle form of racism. Alexandra needs to work on her craft and get better management/agents, not try to twist and turn to justify systemic racism which she benefits from.
    Hmmm. Unless Alexandra had darker skin tone then would you be ok that she plays as Storm?

    Check out his post in Monet's thread

    We got a pic of her father here, and he asks if it's obvious he's black and not just colored dark by mistake. Or dark like dark-skinned Filipino people are.

    I used to think it was pure ignorance due to being from a different part of the world, but after years and years of the same discussions, I can no longer give them the benefit of that doubt.

    Ok. Let's just ignore my previous, previous post.

    This is nothing out of the ordinary from Guggenheim. Technically, Kitty is a trained Ninja and Storm held her own excluding that sneak attack. My only question is when did Rachel learn to throw down?

    In fact, I'm happy he didn't have her get KOed from that sneak attack.

    No.

    On principal alone, if an actress has a white mother or father, she should never be portraying Ororo Munroe, daughter of N'Dare and David Munroe, in an actual production. Fans of any ethnicity or gender should feel free to cosplay as Storm for their own personal enjoyment(free of blackface of course), but in an actual film, the casting directors should never cast half-white actresses in the role. It is a manifestation of systemic racism.

    Me too.

    It was ok if Storm was hit, she was able to fight back and win anyway.

    And Storm looks better with the ponytail.

    No. You were feigning ignorance at the racial politics that pretty much everyone has been trying to get you to stop. It's just so funny that YOU ever try and change the topic away from Storm's race. And it's been made abundantly clear that YOU want to change the subject because YOU can't change her race altogether. You have time and time again exhibited bigoted views towards blacks and the descendants of the first people on earth. You attempts to be nice about offending blacks is absurd. You're ridiculous. And it's high time you were honest with yourself about how you really feel about Storm's problematic black roots.
