    That is a typical FoxNews misinterpretation.  It is not about discriminating against white people- it is about miscasting.

    You can debate about whether miscasting is important- after all Hollywood does it.  But to these students, it is, and they deserve to have a say in their project.

    So because Esmeralda was half Roma and half French, these protesters are claiming she is non-Caucasian?  (Both the Roma and the Frankish, Germanic, descended French are Caucasians!)

      No, that is not what it is really about.  What it is about is White is Bad; People of Colour good.  There is something called the progressive stack.  White people should just disappeared according to these people.  They want to throw out the progress we have made to treat people based on merits and not on attributes they have no control over.

        No one was saying "white is bad".  The point was that it was poor judgement to cast a white actor in the role of a minority-class person subject to prejudice.  

        The point was not to duplicate the exact racial pedigree of the character, but the currently relevant relationship to convey the meaning which is common to both past and present societies.
