Yes a "black" Oscar nominated actress Quvenzhané Wallis has the starring role in the remake of Annie which also stars Oscar winner Jamie Fox, now for the outrage that Annie is White you know like Santa Claus and Jesus.

So a beautiful child just has too much color to play this fictional character...WTFuck America?

Watch the Trailer for "Annie" Starring Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx
We were already excited to see Quvenzhané Wallis' next starring vehicle "Annie," and the trailer did not disappoint. The film stars little Quvenzhané alongside Jamie Foxx as Benjamin Stacks (the new-age Daddy Warbucks) and Cameron Diaz as Miss Hanigan. Watch the first look of the film below Loved it!

Annie was a white girl. I'm so sick of them re-making them to be black actors. It's so racist. I guess that means I could make Roots with a full white cast?

I'm so sick of this politically correct world, this is pathetic!
Hollywood is so out of ideas that they have to result into making movies into crappy remakes.

This is just awful hateful racist shit and now after reading this you probably want to take a shower, but sorry to say that it will not wash away the fucking racism in America.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
