@Isdaril You got me, I missed a stage production.... on the Broadway production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Hermione was played by Noma Dumezweni

All the rest were characters that were established as white in the books they were adapted from (Red is described as white and Irish in the book), decades worth of comic books, television series that preceded them, and/or previous versions of the film mentioned.... hence my use of the phrase "traditionally white roles". If you're arguing time-frames, all but maybe two or three of the characters I mentioned have been around 50 years or more in various media.

Regardless, my original point stands: what's good for the goose is good for the gander
