If classic movies were recast with black people, would they still be classic?

Here's something to think about: Why does this feel so new and unfamiliar?

If Audrey Hepburn were black, would she have been in "Breakfast at Tiffany's"? And if Jada Pinkett Smith's character in "The Matrix" were the lead, would we have cared about the movie as much?

Why can't we have movie classics with leading black women where they doesn't play slaves or a maids?
