He performance might be good, or it might be average, but you'll never get an honest appraisal by the media.

The problem is Idris Elba is the Current White Liberal Face of Acceptable Blackness - meaning black but not too black - conforming to White Liberal Notions of Wealth, Power, Education, Charm, and Sexual Attractiveness that particularly lends itself to a boyfriend / husband fantasy, (in which the White Reporter or SJW would collect much narcissistic supply for her tolerance and open-mindedness at being his partner).

This means any time Progressive Casting for a previously-white character is mentioned, the CWLFOAB will be shoe-horned into the conversation by Liberal Girls as the best candidate for the job.

After a while, it's such a media cliché you begin to suspect he's the only Black Actor they know, but remember, they're Totally Not Racist!

This is why Elba is suggested to play both James Bond, (international movie icon of mass appeal), and Doctor Who, (UK television show of limited appeal), without seeing the disconnect in logic.

I'm old enough to remember when both Denzel Washington, (the 80's version), and Taye Diggs, (the late 90's version), were both repeatedly put forward for Bond. (Note that the more streetwise Samuel L. Jackson was hugely popular in the mid-90's but never championed by the Media).

Next time I hear a fat SJW pontificating on Bond or Doctor Who, and Elba comes up, I'm going to ask her to name one other Black Actor she thinks could also play the role well.

The CWLFOAB is basically the straight female version of the Eternal Feminist Fantasy of being seen as Right On by always being shown to be having a concerned discussion about Feminism with a Black Woman in a Wheelchair. (Seriously, check out the last 40 years of their comics sometime).
