    I find this a bit annoying actually!

    I'm from Nottinghamshire.. so it's a bit of a sting to me! I know it may seem like a minor thing to some.. but that simply is not Friar Tuck!!!

    It's not a minor thing. Sooner or later, there is going to be a black Robin hood too. Like there were black Vikings, a black Cleopatra and other forgeries of history.

    How do you know what Friar Tuck looked like? He was only a made up minute character in an ancient English folk tale.

    As much as it is disturbing to witness the progress of multiculturalism pervading modern television, the introduction of a black Friar Tuck should not rattle too many cages considering blacks were present in major towns and cities of England from as early as the 12th Century. And many were not slaves or destitute, but travellers with religious importance and/or trading links.

    A black Friar Tuck?! Wake me up when they turn the great Celtic god which Robin Hood is based upon into a broad smiling black. That would be "interesting".

    Eh, I feel like there are more outrageous things going on than black men being cast in movies for what would have formerly been considered strictly white parts. I'm not too concerned. What it means ultimately is more frightening. Anyone else in the USA noticing more people on TV are black?
