I agree.

I think there are a few things to be discussed here. The first is that in any particular case, a nonX actor might be excellent playing an X person. That's the art part.

Second, there's the matter of employment. If X actors are underemployed, it does seem unfair to give X roles to nonX actors.

Third, there is the effect on the audience and the larger world. When does casting nonX performers in X roles start to reflect/model anti-X-ism?

It's complicated.
