Boba Fett as a character in the original trilogy was basically raceless and just a costume since we never saw the face of the actor in it. He could have been a Rodian like Greedo beneath it, for all we knew.

I just don't see why race-swapping a white character is okay, but doing the same to a black character is some grievous offense or "cultural appropriation." It's a double standard.
