Angelina Jolie= Modern Day Blackface?
A lot of people are outraged because Mariane Pearl is of Afro-Cuban descent and why would they hire a white actress to play Mariane when there are qualified "mixed/black" actresses. Some have even went as far as saying this is a form of modern day blackface.
From my standpoint, who knows.. Jennifer Aniston was originally supposed to portray Mariane Pearl in this film. I don't know who else could have pulled this off. They look identical and we don't need to always bring in Halle Berry to play all the light-skin roles. Also, Mariane personally wanted Angelina for the part. It's not as extreme as saying it's a modern day blackface, but I can understand my people's concerns.
