That's the only reason he's white. It's literally the least important detail about any of the Fantastic Four characters.
If you want to be that faithful to how they were concieved. Let's go ahead and make Sue a meek little girl who gets abused by Reed and the rest of the men on the team for simply being a woman.
Eventually they grew from that and it was based on the times. It's the same thing here.
And if it really bugs you that much think of it as an alternate universe anyways, which is what these movies are anyways.
C'mon. They still make white characters in 2013.
