    Forgive me whilst I get “over sensitive” but…

    “Great acting skill and range. Respected in his field by the various academies / organizations and his peers. Pity about the way his melanin is setup though. No matter, we don’t have to look at him anyway, just hear him.”

    If it was a white actor that was cast for a black role now (even audiobook), blacks would be crying everywhere that it is racism……smh!
