Well ... he kinda has a point. I mean, Nick Fury turned black, and it didn't harm that character at all.

But then again, this is Peter Parker. As a comparison, imagine having *Superman* played by Will Smith. I'm sorry -- I'm a big Will Smith fan, but it just doesn't work.
I don't necessarily think it's a huge issue, I'm mainly pointing out the double-standard. Nick Fury being black -- nobody blinks twice, but cast a Caucasian in a 'minority role' and it's an outrageous outrage.
That's true, and typical of the double standard going on throughout society. As the old saying goes, imagine the fuss if someone started up the National Association for the Advancement of White People?
