I didn't see them protesting when a young black woman played the part of a middle aged white woman in another film production; namely that of Miss Moneypenny in James Bond.
Indeed, to the contrary.
The liberal argument then was that anyone can play any part and we needed to be colour blind, apparently.
If that were true, then a white woman could play the part of an Asian woman without note.
Neither did I see them moaning about the recent discussion about a black man playing the position of a white man in another film; that of James Bond, in the James Bond films.
Or indeed the somewhat odd and it has to be said, controversial suggestion that it's 'about time' we had a black Dr. Who.
It's all a bit like saying it's about time we had a white Martin Luther King, or a black Famous Five.
Presumably these are the same demented, p.c. liberals who see no wrong with 'MOBO', the music of black origin awards' or indeed the very real 'black women's theatre group', but conversely, would be outraged by even the mere suggestion of a 'white men's' theatre group or music of 'white origin' awards.
Just quite where exactly they get these idiots from, I have no idea.
