These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: White Man's Burden
They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The entire society has been Race Flipped, with blacks really in charge of government, business, and above all, the media. Just the sheer implications of this are staggering, (check out CSA: The Confederate States of America for an ironic inversion of the idea). Instead, the story focuses on a stock kidnapping plot with the racial themes as a side show.
Unfortunate Implications: Apply the movie's own Aesop to itself. Thaddeus played by a white guy would have been a more educated, wealthier, less likeable version of Archie Bunker, while Louis and his family as black would have played into the "blacks are an ignorant, stupid, foolish race that needs to be protected from themselves for their own good" stereotype.
