Default Was it offensive that Zack was Black Ranger?

Its an interesting question given his race. But Ranger Colors aren't really supposed to be about that.

I don't think they ever intended to offend anyone. So a Black Ranger can't be Aferican American?

Well they had plenty of Black Rangers of multple ethnic groups since then. So I really can't blame them for doing it once. Its not like any color has been exclusive to any race. And nor should any be.

I don't think it was really a big deal. We got Adam as MMPR black longer than Zack anyway.

I do think they were probably mindful of the fact that they shouldn't replace Zack with another African American Actor. I do think they like to change up the ethinc groups from year to year anyway. Which makes sense.

I was really proud when TJ became the first Aferican American Red and leader of the Turbo Rangers.

It didn't feel mean spirited at all. Zack was always treated like a quality character.

Most people consider Adam the MMPR Black Ranger anyway.

I think it was a pretty dumb move. Even if they didn't realize it at first. At least they haven't repeated the mistake.
