Basically he says how making Mad Max a series set in a more American region is wrong. This is something I agree with, I do. Mad Max is Australian pop-culture, and seeing The Road Warrior with an American accent is like seeing John Mcclane with a British accent.
But then in the same breath this guy says shit about the casting of a black actor as the Human Torch in the new Fantastic Four film, and how if anyone has an issue with it they're basically just racist.
Changing race of a character changes their entire backstory, it changes context, it changes who they are. Race isn't just a throwaway thing. Tell me now with a straight face making Katara or Sokka white in the film helped them at all? It was just plain offensive to the characters, and worse off offensive to the fans. Don't worry though, the villain stayed brown.
Jamie Fox is set to play Electro in the new Spider-Man. I don't think this is too much of an issue, mainly because he's such a blank character to begin with. However with the Human Torch, we've had like, seventy years with Johnny Storm. He's been fleshed out over this time, and the relationship with his sister and friends has been every bit as fresh as it always has. Changing his race is wrong because it changes the character and much of the dynamic between the people around him.
I know a lot of people disagree, but as always, I'm right. Clearly there isn't another reason for someone to feel differently other than being a cock-gobbling politically correct asshole.
Maybe their mother was an outrageous slut? But yeah, there's being 'politically correct' or 'ethnically equal' or whatever the fuck bitches are talking about these days, and then there's just making stupid fucking decisions like this which make no sense in-story or contexually.
If they want 'a good reason' why Johnny shouldn't be black, the fact that his sister is white as fresh snow is a pretty fucking good one.
That... would be really stupid. Adoption really wouldn't add much to their story that I can think of and they'd be shaping to the story to fit the actors and their need for a full colour palette, instead of just finding the best actors for the part.
I'm just saying if they did hire two different ethnicities to play siblings I would like it explained somehow. The alternative is to either ignore it or rewrite them so that they are not related, which I would not like to see.
