    I think he knows that, thats why he says 'black' instead of black.

    That's why he put black in quotes. He's saying Melanesians look Black, but aren't African. So, the point he's making is Rock's blood is from people with Black skin and curly hair.

    The question is, are there enough good enough actors from those backgrounds. I spoke with and saw a Native American for the first time in my life last week, that's how few of them there are in the United States. 2% are US citzens are native, but if you take out Alaskan natives and ones who are largely white, the number might be a lot lower. I thought he was Mexican at first. My Mexican coworkers thought he was Mexican and spoke Spanish to him. Amerindian-looking Mexicans with makeup would be the best choice. But still there might not be a lot of actors aviable, and please don't complain about Hollywood racism if white actors are chosen.

    .

    There's no short amount of Native American actors, just films for them.

    --------------------

    I don't know. Maybe with the right makeup and costuming he could be believable playing a Native American character, but he looks more like a Polynesian. They did cast half Indigenous Peruvian/Swiss actress Q'Orianka Kilcher as the Native Hawaiian/Scottish Princess Kaiulani of the Kingdom of Hawai'i once.






    But it'd be just as unnecessary as when they casted a Eurasian girl (half European, half East Asian) to play Pocahontas. They could just get a Native American actor to do it. I say, we should have more Pacific Islander films! I can't wait to see the trailer for Moana!

    ---------------------------
    Is there any group of Native Americans that overlap with Polynesians?

    Thanks. I think you are right that he looks more Polynesian.

    Hmm not sure what group of Native Americans/Amerindians overlap with Pacific Islanders. Maybe the ones in the Pacific coast?

    Maybe I should make a thread asking about Native Americans and Pacific Islanders overlap.

    I make this same thread on AS (Anthroscape) and only a few people respond. Its seems most of them don't know anything or not interest about any other race at all besides Caucasoids/West Eurasians. But it make sense since around 99% of members on AS are from Caucasoid/West Eurasian racial backgrounds which I find quite ironic since the AS name itself is also "Human Biodiversity Forum".

    These HBD forums tend to be Eurocentric, though. Probably because, and I have broken this down before, HBD is a belief system of the Dark Enlightenment (or #NRx), which is a subset of the Alt-Right. These movements are racist (as well as misogynistic), so you will generally see them lean towards West Eurasia.

    You see the Alt-Right leanings here too. Particularly with the dick riding of Donald Trump and usage of the words "cuck" or "cuckservative".

    You are right that HBD forums are pretty Eurocentric. I also notice it is pretty Caucasoid/West Eurasian-centric. I have look at the links. But I don't know sure how it has to with the Dark Enlightenment or Alt-Right.

    There are no overlaps, and that's due to both groups having distant features apart from different hair texture on average

    There might be individuals who can overlap with Amerindians but the average can't, they are even built differently, they are big boned people

    If they make up 2% of the population. It is impossible for them to have a lot of good actors. How many good ginger actors are there? We make up about 2% of Americans. It'd be hard to make an all ginger movie.

    Why should you care? Pacific Islander or Ethiopian or Italian or whatever movie, i don't care, I just care about whether it's entertaining. Pushing for diversity is good, but claiming there's a grand scheme of discrimination towards non-whites causing a lack of diversity is wrong. There is racism, but you exaggerate it.
