If you want to get deep ...I'd say the death of King Kong not a black actor but as a symbol...;)

...betrayed but some of his own people, transported and chained in the bowels of a ship. A being that was a god in his native home, he was made to be a laughing stock, lampooned, mocked, and expected to entertain those who captured him (Hottentot Venus / Ota Benga), instead he broke free got angry, got the blonde woman dressed in pure virginal white and tried to climb the corporate ladd...sorry I mean the Empire State building. I can relate to everything but the Faye Raye thing ...It wasn't beauty that killed the beast, it was jungle fever (I kid, I kid...kind of) :P
