    The one about will Smith not being able to play serena Williams dad is the only one I agree with. Black characters are always played by lighter skin black people, and if a character is a real life person then why shouldn’t someone who actually resembles him be cast? Plus it’s very rude to say ‘your not black enough’ as that implies that the darker you are the more black you are. Which only pushes the stereotype that lightskin black People aren’t real black people. Argue with yourself.

    It's crazy how folks are upset that will smith will play Serena and Venus dad because he's not dark enough when folks didn't blink when Denzel played Malcolm X

    I will point out that blind is a physical feature and not a personality type. So a blind person playing a blind person would still be acting. If reserving roles just for actors with those disabilities counted as them not acting, then any able-bodied person playing another able-bodied person is also not acting. I also think that all roles should be open to every type of person unless their appearance specifically plays into the story. Ripley from Alien was written to be filled by either a man or a woman, for example. It also wouldn't have mattered what race she was. It would be really cool to see someone in a wheel chair as an action star. We already see fake blind people as action stars. Though in that case, I think you'd have to specifically write the movie around that.
    I'm rambling. My point, is that we currently reserve roles for pretty, often white, able-bodied people. If we have to reserve roles for other people who better match the character description in order to move away from primarily giving roles to a certain type of person, then I think that's a good next step but not the end goal of many roles being open to any type of person

    Edit: I wanted to tack on that I find this skit hilarious and that Twitter definitely goes too far a lot of the time

    It’s funny that they’ll mock the current “outrage culture” and hypersensitivity in one video, then in the next will contribute to that same culture.

    Too subdued and you know their bosses just standing off camera tapping their toes. Idk why people still want to host. Maybe they should do every Saturdays, but only air their best episodes on air twice a month. That would force real creativity, only the best get chosen for airtime, the rest get streamed online.
