since i was a kid, i always understood james bond/007 to be an alias rather than a person, so it doesn't SHOCK and FRIGHTEN and ANGER me to imagine a POC (or even a woman GASP) in the role.

i've never read the books admittedly but if people can put up with the transition from sean connery to pierce brosnan to daniel craig, i don't see why it's impossible to imagine a black man in the role, too.
