It's certainly not great, but it is only a theory, and a deeply flawed and extremely dangerous one at that. Although the data here concentrates on the USA, the reasoning applies just as accurately to Europe.

That figures.

The immigrant population of Britain has gone from next to nothing in the 1940s to 26% in 70 years. That is just the immigrants we know about and not illegals.

You think that is a conspiracy, no doubt.

You are deluded. At this rate, it won't be too long for you to be proved wrong...As usual.

No it isn't. It's only to do with the way that particular Director wanted to work. In truth, he could potentially have been in trouble for breaking anti-discrimination laws, but hopefully common sense prevailed. Another Director may have wanted to set the story in the Middle East and cast the whole production with people from Africa. Stranger things have happened.

After all what is West Side Story other than a retelling of Romeo and Juliet? Do you think the casting of that ought to have avoided New Yorkers?

Absolute onsense

Why do you ask? There are no such things as "black" parts. There are just parts.

The point is that no-one should either notice or care. I haven't and don't.

Until we all start actually start behaving as though the concept of judging people by the content of their character and not by the colour of their skin means something, we are destined to see division where there is none.

It's happened, almost, in football. Or at least better than in other areas of life. Why not elsewhere?

So do you think no one would care if a white actor played Muhammad Ali? How ridiculous of you, no white actor would sent to audition. That is fact. Nothing to do with ability all to do with colour.
Of course, a b,ack actor should play the part, he was black. Ann Boleyn was white…fact

Wisbech would think it ok for a female, white, wheelchair user to play Muhammad Ali.

The rumbling of an accessibility ramp construction in the jungle. Jason Donovan as Don King. Jennifer Aniston comedy love interest. Ali has second thoughts and considers abandoning Islam - questioning his affliction and giving up boxing in order to teach Palestinian kids. A final monologue about the VAT on vehicles modified for disability. Blamed somehow on Israel or Trump.

 


Red and Blue Army!

so do we now want to whiteWash his heritage. Like Barack O'bama ?

Ali had family from Ennis, County Clare. He was not black, he was mixed race....part irish....just like Clinton Morrison.

thus Ali had the gift of the gab and a belligerent gobby mouth

 


Kayla did Anfield & Old Trafford

I would suggest the organisations such as The National Black Police Association and MOBOs have served their purpose, run their course, and now are forming divisive barriers, rather than bringing them down

I completely agree with this.

Of course there are. James Bond is white. John Shaft is black.
This is not about real life where your points have relevance.

Why?

If a Director wants to make a statement he can cast it whichever way he wants. That's the whole point. In the Fleming books was Bond's skin colour even mentioned, or are you making assumptions based on every actor cast so far?

My Uncle Bert ran a bakery and Eric Blair came in and ordered a cake with “Down With Big Brother!” to be iced on it. Albert declined the order on the grounds that the message was discriminatory against elder bros, racist and sibling-phobic.
Blair came back with ‘The most effective way to destroy a people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history – and censor their cakes’.

If baker Bert offers to bake cakes for others for reward (and not as a favour for free) then the cake is not his. Whatever icing is requested, provided it's technically possible, has nothing to do with him. If it causes offence to him, or anyone else, that's the responsibility of the owner. If the owner just takes it home and shares it with similarly minded people, what's the issue? If he cannot bear to do the work he shouldn't invite it.

Only if it goes on public display is there any potential for offence.

Bert met Eric at a time when the country was comparatively sane; before authoritarians like you stated telling people who they should or should not do business with and what they must or must not collaborate in.

What is your fixation with "leftist"? I use my own brain. The reason I referenced them was to assist you in using yours.

he immigrant population of Britain has not gone from next to nothing in the 1940s to 26% in 70 years.

We both have an immigrant heritage, as does everyone in the UK. Immigration has always happened. It's nothing new, just as objections to it aren't anything new. I don't suppose the Romans or the Normans were welcomed with open arms, let alone the Vikings! It goes in waves, and takes time to settle down. My parents were both strongly opposed to those who arrived in the 50s and 60s, from the Caribbean, India and Africa. Most of us accept that now as just part of our history, although I expect you still think they should all "be sent back".

Assimilation takes time, sometimes a lot of time, and it demands effort, sometimes a great deal of effort, but it happens. Cultures change, birth rates trend downwards to match the average. Intermarriages occur, demarcation lines get blurred, and we end up with a population in which our Roman, Norman and Viking genes might still be there, but we are all British.

So yes, this is a conspiracy theory and a very nasty one.

That might be how you would see it, if you were a Director casting a play.

Another Director, seeking to make a specific point, might deliberately cast the role differently. He might be seeking a reaction. Exactly the same with Ann Boleyn. Unless you are trying to produce a historically accurate documentary anything could be done. Fact!
