If a director had said “I DON’T SEE MYSELF CASTING A BLACK DUDE AS THE LEAD” they would be run out of town for being racist.
And yet Jordan Peele stated about making movies after ‘Us’: “I Don’t See Myself Casting a White Dude as the Lead”. ( https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/rambling-reporter/jordan-peele-says-i-dont-see-myself-casting-a-white-dude-as-lead-us-1197021 )
Wow. He is a racist solely focused on skin color.
