Many Caucasians have brown skin, and their gods were depicted having light skin, brown skin, even blue skin and many of them were part animal as well.

Just saying.

If you created a character, who's to say who portrays that character ? If you created an Asian character and want Jordan Peele to play him, Jordan plays him.

That's it...

... but if now the Brits would want to cast an Eskimo as James Bond, it's OK as well -- it's their franchise, it's their money...
I am pretty sure Flemmings was talking about character and persona not race. The dude built a house in Jamaica and lived there for christ sake, which shows he was comfortable around blacks.

That on top of 50 years of bond being played by a white guy. I would say James Bond is white. Maybe Jordan Peele can cast an all black version of 007.
A no would have been okay.

I haven't stated anywhere that he is black, white or any other race, but Bond is not defined. It's also been stated that Bond is a code name for a number of agents, and not just one man. Seeing that the movies have no continuity.

But it's funny to see people get angry about it i suppose.

See above. The only description is that Bond has black hair and dark eyes. My agenda? Do you think i'm black?

Don't get too upset, they're just movies.

I like these fantasy movies where 1 guy takes out what amounts to small armies.
I said I don't follow these franchises, but this doesn't mean that I didn't watch some of those movies -- or at least parts of them...

As I said before: the Brits own that franchise, the Brits are paying for that -- the may do what ever they want with 007...

... and, usually, various fictional characters emerge from a certain cultural (sub-cultural) milieu... the way a cultural environment changes with time may also reflect a chance in market target (in the case on movie making industry)...

I find them fascinating. Super villains and their preposterous end of the world schemes that only Bond can thwart.

... of course... the motif of mythological hero is deep rooted in anthropology -- there always existed origin/founding myths and eschatological/salvation myths... so it goes...
