So great to see his face!… (x)
Its not Jacksons fault entirely when it came to casting. He wanted Martin Freeman because he thought he would be perfect for the job. Jackson wanted the perfect actor for Bilbo. Also, Tolkien made most of the characters white, not Jackson. Sure more characters that were villains and cgi made were not white. But Jackson tried his best for casting despite going against some of the books guidelines. Tolkien was writing in a different time with more racism therefore less non white characters.
