So why change gingers into Black people?

So why change gingers into Black people? A cynical person may say that it’s a way to add diversity with making a Black person the star of the property. This attitude, however, is dismissive of the complexity of the portrayed characters and the honest efforts of the producers to add diversity. Also, gingers are not always supporting characters– Ariel certainly isn’t.
I have two theories for why producers make this switch.
First, finding natural redheads is very difficult due to it being a recessive gene. Many producers will use dye or wigs to compensate for that, but those methods can oftentimes look unnatural. It is easier not to bother, and if they’re changing the character’s hair color, why not also change their race? Especially since most of the time, being a redhead is not significant to the character.
Second, gingers are almost guarantee to be well-developed characters. As stated earlier, characters having red hair told the audiences immediately that they were important– that these characters have their own stories and deep characterizations. By making them Black, producers know that they will have round and dynamic Black characters, which would be harder with many non-gingers, especially early characters of color, who were often exaggerated stereotypes.

    Now, most of the characters I would like to see race-lifted are not gingers because I have a particular love for redheads. If I had to choose one, however, I would love to see a Black Jean Grey. Throughout the Marvel Universe, Jean has been one of its most powerful characters, most respected leaders, and most desirable women; it would be amazing to see a Black woman in a role with that much significance.

    It's easier to raceswap a character and get attention from controversy than it is to make a new, well developed character.

    Optimistic perspective: It's easier to raceswap a character black instead of creating a brand new and interesting black character.

    Pessimistic perspective: Original black characters can't be successful on their own merit because black people are generally disliked in real life. Therefore, if you want a black person in media, you will need to...
    A. Turn a white person black (Ariel).
    B. Make a new black character that's riding off the success of a franchise (Black Panther and Miles Morales)
    C. Put them in a supporting role (Basically every movie)

    So Hollywood can spend time and money on CGI shit like Thanos and Planet of the Apes but good hair dye and wigs are something out of reach?

      Especially weird when Anna Diop's party city wig somehow counts as a black ginger.

    I think you've got most of it. It may also be that redheads in fictions are often portrayed as cool, feisty, adventurous (ironic for people who can barely go in the sun), and those are all traits that are also supposed to be positive Black stereotypes.

    Redheads are the most beautiful and can only be white, so it's obvious they'd go after them.
