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.
There's nothing about being the white version in black face or "enslaving him" as you put it. He's simply Nick Fury regardless of his appearance. His original body happened to be the 616 white version but his current body is the Ultimate version. It could easily have been the reverse. I'm willing to bet with someone like Fury that he wouldn't really care what colour he is.

You're the one who seems to see him as a black meat puppet. I never suggested anything of the sort.
