“I just watched 2001: A Space Odyssey with my kids. Every single actor (total maybe 12) was White (except the Moochelle-lookalikes in the opening). Will such a film be banned in the future by the FCC?”

Yep, with Spike Lee as FCC Commissioner ca. 2016.

Not to mention all those classic Honky flicks from Hollywood’s Golden era.

They don't have to ban the old movies--just "colorize" them.

Last December I was in a bookstore looking for a kid's book to give to the granddaughter of a friend of mine, and noticed that one book which was probably already around when I was a kid (or not much later) had been reissued with a certain percentage of the children shown as black. I don't remember if any were shown as Hispanic. I guess they didn't want to inflict emotional trauma on black kids who might be read a story which had only white kids in it.
