I dont know what you are but would you like someone who is completely a difference race as you play you in a movie.
I personally wouldn’t care. But that’s what i meant by “being in the story”, like biopics. Fictional movies shouldn’t care so much about race. Unfort, movies with white casts make more money for studios.
Well a lot of white people dont like even biracial people portraying them in movies because they feel that they fit into the black phenotype. I'm surprised that nobody says anything about jlo I dont even think she has white people facial features she is just very light skin.
That’s the problem. People making rash judgements based on skin tone.
Exactly she doesn't even have the facial features of a white person they just cast her in white roles because of her skin color.
It’s also a problem that you focus on “facial features”- whatever the hell that means.
Now all of sudden it is a problem that people discriminate after people discriminate upon on what someone looks. You can tell by looking at someone's face the details in their face to what they are.
You’re falling for the same bigotry that you hate in others. I wish you could see it.
White people so called white people who think that they are white and people in the ku klux Klan made the problems in them world. I'm just saying they only select people to play white characters that they believe are white passing. I'm saying that jlo isn't playing her own roles. You can't pick and choose who to say to about what roles they should play. You can't say nothing to people because the whole world believes we are all different because of our ethinicity.
Yeah, studios pick actors based on what looks will sell better. Is that their fault?
Yes it is their fault dont look at me like I am stupid because I am telling the truth to what people do. I'm not an idiot I know that people are still racist.
Blame the people who buy more movie tickets to all white cast.
Yeah but someone with a black phenotype gets to play a white woman in a movie and then all the white people get mad. I'm called the racist but anybody with black blood plays a white woman they take that as an insult.
I'm not sure.I haven't noticed that, but when I see Jennifer Lopez I am thinking about her butt for most of the movie.

Because when a person who is black and white are more likely to play an African American role and white people usually will say something. So you are saying if you look white than you can play a white role.
Or when they cast Nordic people like Brad Pitt to play an ancient Greek 😂
@WeAreChaos that is different because they are both white. How is Jlo white?
@WeAreChaos Ha ha ha! I don't complain about any, though, but I mean, I think the same argument would work
It's the same thing because the ancient Greeks were Mediterranean people with brown hair and eyes and not Nordic. Only Neonazis claim otherwise
Brad Pitt and A Greek person are both white. How is jlo white?
I'm saying generally ethnicity won't make much of a difference. I didn't like the twists of the film Dorian Gray, but the choice for the main actor wasn't the issue: The story was. I don't complain about Samuel Jackson playing Nick Fury, for instance: I think he looked great in the character
No one says they're not white, but they're not Nordic. That's a distortion of history
Yeah but it is obvious that everyone knows that samuel jackson is black they dont have him with a white family like they do in jlo movies she has a white husband and white child. I dont see samuel Jackson with a white child in his movies because people be like what the hell.
Much stranger things happen in films and nobody bats an eye, come on. Seeing someone with a couple of descendants that don't look like them shouldn't be such a shocking thing. I'm from the times when they casted a 30-year-old to play a teenager, and I have to say the acting was so much better than with those kids they pick nowadays
Yeah but when halle berry plays a white women and has a white husband and kids than she hates herself. But when jlo only chooses white roles when she is not white than nobody says anything. I dont see how people thinks that she looks white she looks hispanic to me. It is only self hatred is when people don't think that you look like a sorted race to play.
Puerto Rico is an American territory jlo is puerto rico.
Yeah but if halle berry played a white role than everyone will pay attention.
Halle Barry played Catwoman, who is white in the comics. The movie sucked, but no one cared. People only care if a white person plays the role of a non-white person.
Yeah but she doesn't be having a white family with a white husband and a white child.
It's 2020. Mixed couples aren't that rare.
Yeah but jlo was playing white roles since her career started. People only say something when a person of darker complexions plays a particular role. I notice that but when I make a comment about someone of a different background playing white roles nobody says anything because they think they look white enough to play the role. Anyone who is black phenotype can't play a role where they can have a white family.
Sure they can. I just watched Swamp Thing the other day. Black guy has two white parents. And they make a point to let you know they are biological and not adopted. How does that work? Don't know. Doesn't matter. Doesn't change the story in any way. You're getting real caught up on race when it shouldn't matter. In a documentary or something that is supposed to be historically accurate, I'm with you. But for fiction? Could not care less.
Like I said when it is a person with a black phenotype playing a role where they have a white family and where they can produce white kids then that is when people pay attention. Like when they gave hailee bailey a hard time for playing ariel.
Idc really. I'm more interested in the person's acting. In bollywood, Indians have played roles of foreigners. Its just talent.
No she is not Hispanics have native American in their blood too natives aren't white.
Hispanics are descendants of the Spanish, from Spain. Some, not all Latinos or Hispanics have native blood. The Spanish people are caucasian.
Whatever Hispanics have some African dna in them too but you dont see them approaching black roles. Sounds racist to me.
Stop justifying them white is different from Hispanic.
And for the most part that is how Hispanics are made in they are from latin America they are Spanish and native American. It is not like she came start from spain.
Wow. I guess I’ll have to wait a while for you to become intelligent.
No i know what I am talking about it says that puerto ricans dna is tanio European and African. So fuck you people know that Hispanics and whites are different. Who told you that Hispanic people were white. Another jackass?
What she only played in enough movies of her own kind counting on one hand.
You care if a biracial person who looks black plays a white woman in a movie.
Same difference she isn't white.
Says who? Because they have their own option on the paper on what to check and some Hispanics are black like Cardi B. PUERTO RICOS are tanio European and African if you dont believe me look it up. Jennifer Lopez isn't white. They are mix
You can't be black and Hispanic. Hispanics are descended from Spaniards. So she can be mixed. But if she's black, she's not a Spaniard. There are Mestizos which are mixed with Spaniards and indigenous people. There are pure indigenous Latinos, and there are pure white Latinos with pure Spanish blood.I don't have to look anything up and you don't have to educate me, because I know. I know there's a Latino (non white) option on there. But those aren't very accurate, because anthropologists classify them in the same racial group as Europeans because they are descended from Spaniards. There are Latinos who are whiter than me. Look at Argentinians and Uruguayans.
It depends where you go yes there are Latinos who are white but jlo isn't white. The Spanish are in Hispanic peoples dna but they also mix with the slaves too that they had. Usually puerto ricans and dominicans are black latinos they have black dna. I am puerto rican and people dont think that I am white. They just think that jlo is white because of her light skin.
