Bond Ain’t A Black Woman, Blade Ain’t A White Boy
While us Americans are so hung up on political correctness, the British franchise of Bond keeps their title character a British white guy and that just annoys the living hell out of publications that look to play the savior for readers who love to play the victim.
Changing the race or gender of a character for the sake of change itself does nothing to advance the character or the story. Hinging the progression of a group of people on a franchise you don’t care about means it’s time to rethink your priorities. Some characters and these traits are interchangeable, many are not.
If you’re a fan and you’re open to say, Idris Elba playing the role, you’ve already set yourself apart from the people I’m talking about because you’re an actual fan.
