Just for clarity's sake - many recent postings gave examples where actors
played characters of a different race/ethnicity. Should the two cases not be
(1) films where two characters are of different race and have romances (or
(2) films where a character, whatever its function, has one race, and its
actor/actress another?
Although both cases are telling about attitudes towards race etc., they are
so in quite different ways.
