With all the bitching around and moaning about recasting old characters along politically correct lines and racial themes, I figured Hollywood should even out things by recasting white people for the remake of black movies or the main character is black.
Here a short list of suggestions.
Mandingo: Chris Hemsworth
Roots: Colin Farrel as Kenny ” Kunter” Kent and the Irish Slavery story.
Cleopatra Jones: Christina Hendricks
Shaft: Robert Downey Jr.
Malcom X: Kenau Reeves
Superfly: Adam Sandler
Coming To America: Steve Buscemi
The Color Purple: Britney Spears
Ray: John Cusack
Waiting to Exhale: The Cast of Steel Magnolias.
Sister Act: Sally Fields (and you know why)
Purple Rain: Vanilla Ice
In The Heat Of The Night: Gary Oldman as Mr. Tibbs.
Beverly Hills Cop: David Spade.
Black Panther: Jason Statham. (Mark T.)
Just thought. You can add your own re-casting ideas in the comments.

“…Hollywood should even out things…”
Been saying that since the PC police convinced hollystupid of releasing this remake: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Honeymooners_(film)
Back then, I said that they should also then release a remake of The Jeffersons with an all Korean-american cast, or a 50/50 cast of gingers and native-americans. Loved to see people reactions to that.
Ah, I see you’ve finally revealed your grand plan to make the big dem controlled cities burn. Well played sir, well played indeed.
Carrot top as Urkel.
