(If this sounds racially biased,it is not actually meant to be). For instance, Morgan Freeman in Hard Rain over Christian Slater, Denzel Washinton in Crimson Tide over Gene Hackman, Eddy Murphy in all his movies.
Its not a matter of white actor or black actor the splendid quality gets upper band its not a matter of white and black its a nature rule.
It's something that I have never even considered...
I know I didn't know about one actor over another getting the part, I think it's great when the right actor gets the part, I don't even think black or white. we're all people.
denzel washington is hard to beat, perfect for crimson tide.
I don't think he was talking about the black actor getting the part over a white actor. He is referring to the black actor gaining the upper hand in the movie over the white actor, for example Denzel taking over the sub from Gene Hackman in Crimson Tide.
Still not sure what the OP is hoping to gain from this thread though.
Does it matter?
I'm sure others will give examples of the opposite.
I am the one who started this discussion. Am I glad to read all the reactions. We are beoming one huge human community with no prejudices. The spirit is exhilarating. Thanks
what do you mean by upper hand? Thier charachter is stronger or something? (I haven't seen any of those movies you mentioned. sorry..)
they are the main characters??, it doesnt matter who they are to me, as long as they make me LOL,,
The title confused me so I clicked it just to get even more confused by the thread itself.
How would you feel if you were, for example, blind, and could only hear their voices, rather than *see* who they are? Would it make any difference to you then?
I also see, thirdmillenium, you posted again and posed this as sort of a "temperature" question. (Getting the temperature of this subject here.) Just wanted to add, welcome to the neighborhood. Looking forward to reading your hubs.
I love 'Men in Black' and 'Independence Day'. I think is great that Will Smith beat the aliens!
I am sorry I posted this. It is out of sync, I see now. Anyway I can withdarw it?
HA~! YOU are refreshingly spontaneous and so young, I bet! we all want to withdraw things we say and ask on here but I've never seen anyone actually ask to do so - usually they just disappear and leave us knoshing about with it! so good on ya!
I agree. This is a very confusing question and could be interpreted several different ways.
Not sure of the intent behind this question-- are you writing a screenplay?
At any rate, it depends on the point/message of the story and the integrity/motivation of the character-- not the race, nationality, religion, or physical attributes of the character.
Therefore, I don't feel the question is on a useful target, craft-wise. As mere solicitation for thoughts-- well, here you are.

Do you think that "Black Lives Matter" is designed to bring us closer or to further divide us?I am hopeful that we can find a way to live together on this planet respecting each other and valuing each other.

Does it matter to you if Jesus's skin color was Black or White?I am so sick and tired of people making a issue out of what color Jesus was or what color were the twelve tribes of Israel or if God is black or white. For me, I personally I DON'T CARE what color any of them were or are. There is no...
