ABC News: Is Hollywood Whitewashing Ethnic Roles?

You have got to read this:

The plot is based on the real-life story of Texas woman Chante Mallard, who, at age 27, was convicted of murder and evidence tampering, and given 50-year and 10-year concurrent sentences after she hit Gregory Biggs and left him to die stuck in her windshield.

Mallard is African-American. Suvari, the blonde, blue-eyed beauty from “American Beauty” and the “American Pie” movies, is not. But she does wear cornrows to play the role of Brandi.

I say Hollywood has the right to take some imagination to anything so for me the real question is how often is this done?
