I'm all for this but there's probably some Black Guy from London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Amsterdam, Ess*x, Suss*x that Hollywood have in mind to play him.

Hollywood has a preference of British actors to American ones. Idk why tbh, but my guess is that British Actors are probably cheaper and "classically" trained in theater, so directors and producers aim for them juxtaposed to American actors. It sucks because roles are limited, as it is, for Black Americans.

I would think that British Actors would have less script critiques when it comes to content historically significant with in the black American community. For example, the Fred Hampton movie portays panthers at some points just firing off at cops, basically unprovoked. A black American actor may say "wait, the narrative of events here is debatable, let's shoot from a more neutral standpoint or from the historical account given by panther member A" I doubt that production likes to change "their script" much so they go with the presumably "most agreeable"

This dude can't act and if you're trying to sell tickets... no. RDC is popular, but not like that.

2 reasons—

1) stoke division within the African diaspora between Black Brits and Black Americans

2) attempted erasure of Black Americans from popular world consciousness
