Is this Tyler Perry Presents?!

Since when is Annie black? Since when is Mr. Warbucks black? Play the race card on me, fine. But if there was a remake of "The Color purple" or "Malcom X" and the lead roles were played by white actors, the black community would be in an uproar screaming racism. Fact.

Tbh, it kinda bothers me to but you cant compare it to those films...that are about race...the cast is great though and I love the director (Easy A and Friends with Benefits are both fantastic fun films) and he knows howto get great performances out of his cast.

Yeah, cause Malcom X and Color Purple are movied about race so... it wouldn't even be racist, it just be weird if they cast white actors in the lead roles. I don't remember Annie very much, but I don't recall race playing a role in the movie's plot. Sure, it would nice to see someone with the iconic red hair in the role, but besides that, I don't see any issue with this
