it just says that only a white guy can play the hero.

How does it say that?

I guess you could say by assertion.  The same way Keanu reeves was in 47 ronin, Matt Damon in Great Wall, or even The last Samurai with Cruise.  Hell, even the God's of Egypt.  It was cool to make the heroes and the majority of the God's white.  They had one black God for that.  I'm like how do you erase something like that a significant aspect of history in this instance for Hawaii.  Fuck, I forgot the name of that movie in Hawaii where they replaced a half Hawaiian chick a white female.  I'll be looking forward to Sean Connery's life story being played by 50cent.

And if they had cast a nigger, nobody would say a word.
You would have.

You'd have said 'look they cast a nigger'.

Seems to be the extent of his vocabulary.  Limited like him.

So you only watch Tom Cruise and Keanu Reeves movies? Don't care for say Will Smith, The Rock, or Jackie Chan?

You should take up the plight of WoC. How many of those do we get? Catwoman (a traditionally white woman played by a black actress, which don't think anyone had a problem with...though a very a shitty film not bc of that). The Chun Li movie? Shitty from what I hear. Columbiana? Jackie Brown? Think it would be tough to come up with 10.

Another shameful casting choice, Neo would have been perfect for this role.

Those were just the ones I thought of off the top of my head in say the last year.  And I only recently saw Keanu's flick I think due to Netflix.  Haven't seen cruise's or Damon's newest. 
Was going to address that was well with women of color. Had aliens, the resident evil series in mind, the many Jolie flicks. And in comparison they're a rarity as well.  How many white fem hero flicks have their been in comparison.  We saw how well Elektra did and we've seen how strong of a character has been as storm.  Which, I even back then I didn't think she was a strong enough character for the part.  Angela Basset would have done better. Halle Berry was garbage in Catwoman.  She shouldn't have gotten that roll.  And she did it right after winning an Academy award.  And hell I even forgot about Eartha Kitt playing Catwoman in the tv series.  And I did mean to make this more people of color as opposed to just one spectrum of the color wheel.  Considering this dude is Hawaiian and he's not a fictional character.  Hell, I liked Depp's work as Tonto.  I thought he did pretty good in that role.

Lol!  That's who I was thinking of earlier.  And with the casting of say some Anime flicks with the way the draw the eyes it's easy enough to to think they're Americans, eurocentric.  The likes of Say Goku or other characters.  Hell, even going back to speed racer and Robotech it's easy to just assume their white/Eurocentric.  So, in that regard is it their fault for who and how they're characters are cast in Hollywood?  You have characters who are clearly born and raised or created in Japan.  But, they look just like any American white guy you could potentially know.

Keanu Reeves shouldn't get much shit. The dude is part Hawaiian and Chinese.

I mean how the fuck do you think he ended up with the name Keanu?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keanu_Reeves

Also, part English on his mother's side and Portuguese.  "Reeves was born in Beirut, Lebanon, the son of Patricia Bond (née Taylor), a costume designer/performer, and Samuel Nowlin Reeves, Jr.[5] His mother is English, from Essex, England.[6] His father, an American from Hawaii, has Native Hawaiian, Chinese, Portuguese, and English ancestry.[7][8][9][10][11] Reeves has said: "My grandmother is Chinese and Hawaiian, so I was around Chinese art, furniture and cuisine when I was growing up."  He's dad wasn't a relevant factor I. His life either.

Reeves's mother was working in Beirut when she met his father. Reeves's father earned his GED while imprisoned in Hawaii for selling heroin at Hilo International Airport.[15] He abandoned his wife and family when Reeves was three years old, but Reeves knew him until he was six. They last met on the island of Kauai when Reeves was 13.


I can say I do feel for Keanu.  Especially, The personal tragedies.  Glad to see he's held it together.

Well, like in DBZ, the Son family is more Asian, but on the other hand, the Briefs family--besides Vegeta--is more Western.
