an extended practice in comics and movie and tv show adaptations from comics, novels and other sources where fictional characters and historical figures' race are changed. in the past, this used to happen in the form of caucasian actors being given the roles of black, brown and asian characters and historical figures, known today as whitewashing. nowadays the trend has shifted dramatically in what is known as blackwashing, where under the excuse of lack of diversity white characters and historical figures, important and minor, are cast (or illustrated in the case of comics and animated shows) , almost always, as afro blacks.

-what?! for the love of God, when will these people stop racebending white characters?
