Blackwashing is a growing trend in Hollywood where formerly white characters are portrayed by non-white actors, raising the ire of closeted racists everywhere, who prefer that Hollywood continue to uphold the longstanding tradition of whitewashing - replacing all minority characters with white actors. While the members of the white minority, an elite group of persecuted white people who are mad that they can't say the n-word, will likely be aghast at this news, resulting in a 20 page thread on the Outhouse forums, most people can agree that Denzel Washington is pretty good casting choice for The Equalizer.
The movie is a remake of the eighties TV show of the same name that starred Robert Woodward as a former CIA operative that helps people in need, sort of like 24 meets the A-Team. Shooting begins in April, with a screenplay by Robert Wenck, and it appears to be taking a serious approach to the concept instead of being an ironic, tongue-in-cheek parody, a tactic often used with eighties TV show remakes that paradoxically expects to make hundreds of millions of dollars while sending the message that the source material is stupid and deserves to be mocked.
