So, you're proposing that Nick Fury should be a sort of Black meat puppet animated by the spirit of a dead White guy? Yeah, no.
Fury is a Black man in the Ultimate universe and that's the version Marvel chose to use. There is no justification for virtually enslaving him via some sort of outlandish mind-swapping scheme just so it can somehow be claimed that he's the White version of the character in blackface.
