a change in the races of actors chosen for high-ranking roles in both tv and film? I've noticed that a lot more African-Americans are put into roles such as police chiefs and the american president and other roles of high rank. Personally I don't care what colour their skin is, as long as they can act the part well.

But I wonder if its becoming too much of a PC thing now? Like its obligatory to put someone of minority race into such roles?
Certainly they've usually been thrown into stereotypical roles and its good to see that the industry is acknowledging they should be moving forward - but I wonder how the actors themselves feel about it all?


I remember in the old films when they didn't even cast real indians in those cowboy movies  or real negroes, but threw paint on a caucasians face

Yup have noticed. And yup remember when the white people were painted up to look black. It's not just in America though. Have noticed in NZ as well. Tis all good as long as they find and keep the balance, but most importantly they can ACT Smiley

I should have said its not just minority races, its women who have been bumped up too, like cops having female bosses these days.

I thinks its pretty much formulaic now that you are going to see a minority class in a position of power on the screen these days.
