    Will Smith isn't black enough: The insanity of political correctness

    Source: Critics: Will Smith Too Light-Skinned to Play Serena Williams’ Father in ‘King Richard’ Film

    The new film "King Richard" is facing allegations of “colorism,” as critics say that actor Will Smith’s lighter skin tone does not match the actual skin tone of the character he is cast to play.

    Will Smith is reportedly cast as Richard Williams, the father and tennis mentor of Venus and Serena Williams.

    Several journalists and cultural critics have accused the film of “colorism” — the idea that between people of color, there are more privileges and opportunities for those with a lighter skin tone.

    “Colorism matters,” sportswriter Clarence Hill Jr. declared Tuesday. “Love will Smith but there are other black actors for this role.”

    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    I don't think anyone is supposed to pay attention to race anymore.

    How about Jackie Chan as her father?

    Can't he just self-identify as being blacker?
