J.K Rowling's new movie not about race issues

So apparently there's outrage from various groups that J.K Rowling's latest movie Fantastic Beasts isn't focussing on or addressing race issues and segregation in 1920's New York. Do you think that every movie or book should have a plot focussing on race/minority issues or not?

If it was movie or book about race then yes?

apparently since a large part of her audience is American she should be working to enlighten them.

How about she just writes what she wants to write? She completely explored race issues over the course of a seven book series.

The story is about a man who is writing a book about mythical creatures and where to find them. She wrote seven books and signed off on 8 movies that include segregation and race issues.

I am not taking your word for it Op that any group is "outraged" by this.
