183 deviants said sometimes i care, sometimes i dont, depends on many factors. (such as; if its whitewashing, if the original character was a real person etc..)
159 deviants said Is not ok. characters should be portayed as they are supposed to be from the book, or other media they were taken from for the movie. Cast directors should not take liberties, its offesnive.
75 deviants said In some stories is it way more important that original charactes races are mantained, than others. Also, some characters share this " no other race should be allowed" characteristic.

14 deviants said People should not care so much about this. lets just enjoy movies.
7 deviants said Its not a question if they are able to do it legally, but a moral issue. (explain, maybe)
7 deviants said A director should be able to take a story and model it as they want (as long as not offensive i guess), even if that includes racebending, and not be moraly crucified for doing so.
7 deviants said oh man, thats a sensitive issue, Why the heck would you do a poll about this topic?! (i dont think is such a terrible question really)
2 deviants said Its ok, i guess, movie companies have no legal obligation to cast characters with the original race of characters taken from books or else, to make their movies (in some cases, i think)
1 deviant said Sure it is ok, Bollywood does it all the time! and no one complains.
