Phenomenon in historical fiction films in which one or more people of a given race are cast in a setting or time period in which that race was non-existent or rare. Usually done to be politically correct or because the casting company was stupid.
Why does this movie about feudal Japan have white people in it? The director must have been suffering from the Black Viking Effect.
