Then do as James Cameron did with Titanic (according to David Farland, anyway): surreptitiously introduce various other races and cultures in drive-by references and throwaway scenes, don't slam minorities into lead roles for no reason. When you look over the film, shit though it might be, it had mass worldwide appeal for a reason: it had Kate Winslet's glorious young naked body it had actors from all over Europe, and even a few Turkish and Indians as well. DiCaprio's buddies are Irish and Italian. He wins his ticket from a couple of Germans(?) Winslet becomes friends with fatass American Molly Brown. There are scenes below decks featuring more Irish and Scottish actors. And so on. But because of the time and setting, Cameron didn't go casting fucking Will Smith as the black lower-class lover of a white girl on the ship: that would have had, shall we say, unfortunate consequences in real life.

Milton Friedman used to say discrimination is its own punishment -- but the comment applies equally to discrimination in favour of one group to cackhandedly "fix" historical guilt over discrimination against that group.
