Angelina Jolie= Modern Day Blackface?

There has been alot of controversy about Angelina Jolie's new character in the movie "A Mighty Heart". Below is a picture of Angelina Jolie as Mariane Pearl, the widow of Daniel Pearl. Daniel was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan while doing an article for 'The Wall Street Journal'.

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.

My View:
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.

What's yours?

I can see why people might think it's weird or feel offended, but I agree, if Mariane is the one with the story and the one who's husband died, she should have a say in who plays the part.

I think that Angelina is the best for this role! She plays with all her heart! She is very interesting person. I have picked some unusual facts from Angelina Jolie biography, and you know I just admire her!
