Capice, but not everyone's going to disagree on what characters can undergo a race lift and what can't. To me, there's nothing quintessentially 'white' about Peter Parker, he's an average if not very nerdy teen living in Queens. He could really be any ethnicity without changing a single detail. Contrast that to Bane, who was styled off of luchadore wrestlers and background is firmly set in a (fictional) Carribean country. Hell, to go the other direction, I'd have a hard time seeing a black actor play Bruce Wayne; the Wayne's are depicted as old old
money and Bruce's disguise is a wealthy WASP in Gotham's social elite, so it's hard to picture him as anything but a white guy. Not impossible in either case, but it's still a part of their character.
Ultimately, it's not about race-lifting to be trendy or hip, but to get the best actor for the best character. Donald Glover is a well-known comedian who is rather athletic and a great, expressive actor, while being in the right age range for the part. After Maguire, a lot
of fans wanted someone who could play up the snarky funny part of Peter's character, and Donald would've done it well. (For what it's worth, Topher Grace was my ideal Peter Parker until he was cast as Eddie Brock... for shame...)
Also, there is some
precedence. Daredevil gets middling reviews at best, but most people liked Michael Clarke Duncan
as Kingpin. Why? Because he's massive and powerful and imposing. He's the right man for the role. People were (mostly) ecstatic about Halle Berry being cast as Catwoman, before it became clear that the movie was little more than a cheap Crow knock-off. It's not about race, it's about certain actors being a great fit for the job that, like hair color and eye color, for many characters, race just isn't a big factor. That's how I felt about Daniel Glover as Spider-Man, even though I think Andrew Garfield was an excellent choice now that we've seen the outcome.

I'm pretty sure I have comic recommendations for you.
