I don't think it's racist.  Neither one are well known actors, it has nothing to do with skin color.  I personally have never heard of either of them.

I agree.  If they were more well known it would have been blatant racism, but I've never heard of them, the others are more well known.

Yes I think it is, because they say it was more for actors who would be recognized but I don't recognize anyone except Faizon Love, and Vince Vaughn... I don't know that's IMO...

IDk if they removed them because they are AA then that racist, but if they removed them because they threw everthing off then thats not. Either way its sad that every little thing has to come back to race.

I agree. It seems like no matter what people do, it always comes back to race. Obviously not everything, but you get the picture

No.. For international marketing. A company wants and needs it's most recognizable figures  prominately displayed in marketing ads and materials.  If the actors who play that couple are not internationally recognized, then why put them on an ad to draw in people.
