You looked at a list of the biggest blockbusters starring black actors. Ok. And how many big budget movies have even been made that starred black actors? Can you even name one that didn't star Smith?
I would think it is that. If Will Smith has to play every black role, that's extremely limiting for any other black actor, especially younger ones who want to break out.
Actually, the Beverly Hills Cop movies were fairly successful at their time. That starred Will Smith didn't it?
