Angelina Jolie is just too darn white.

Angelina will be playing Daniel Pearl's widow, who is of mixed race.

Jolie under fire for role as murdered reporter's wife - 11 Oct 2006 - Lifestyle & Leisure: "Jolie's role as Pearl's widow Mariane - who is mixed race - has upset some black rights groups, who claim the casting is a 'whitewash', reported British newspaper The Daily Mail.

One blogger on the website wrote: 'It is 2006 and I had assumed that the days when white actors took on roles of black people had long passed away.'"

I could probably make some sort of comment on Ms. Jolie's facial features, which would just get me in trouble. Read between the lines if you want to know what I could say.
