    This book came out in the 1850′s era, so it’s has culture significance and is classic from one most famous English authors, so I guess it’s ok from some to “culture appropriate” and to change the race of the main character, how does work anyways??? are going pretend 1820′s England was India or are just changing his race and not his family or all the main characters, or he’s pretending he’s a white English man.

    Funny how that works, when race and ethnicity is the most important element for SJW in casting for a movie, except when it’s not.

    An Indian David Copperfield??? WTF????

    It’s funny, because I bet you didn’t care at all about the wrong ethnicities in movies like Noah, Exodus, any movie about Jesus, 300. Aloha, Alexander, Troy and such, and yet you are complaining about the casting of a fictional character because the actor is not white
