Some controversy has been stirred up recently with the casting of a black actor, Noma Dumezweni, for the role of Hermione in a stage production of the next chapter in J. K.

Regardless of where you fall, the core of the issue lies in how we perceive characters with less than exact descriptions in books. I talk about this in my latest YouTube video below. Watch now, give me a thumbs up, and join the discussion!
