I've noticed a lot of recent movies and tv shows set in the past have had really racially diverse casts. Apparently small town medieval Britain was even more well blended than modern day London. I know the intention is to make the setting more palatable to a modern audience, but isn't it as bad as whitewashing? A way of hiding the ugly past/ covering up the fact societies the whole world over were very homogeneous until the 20th century?
