The animated series The Simpsons has made the decision that his characters will be dubbed by actors of the same race and not only by white actors as they did previously in their chapters.
It was on Friday June 26 that they announced the decision they had made, so now the characters that appear on screen will be dubbed by people of the race they represent and not exclusively by white actors.
Currently this is a hotly debated issue in the United States, Since in the animation genre a significant number of characters African-American, Latino or Asian are dubbed only by white actors.

Other actors made a very similar decision, such is the example of Mike Henry, who assured on Friday that will never again give Cleveland a voice, a african american character from "Family Guy" that featured its own television series on "The Cleveland Show."
Likewise, actresses Kristen Bell "Molly" in Central Park and Jenny Slate "Missy" of Big Mouth confirmed that they would no longer double the characters they played as they were taking away the possibility of a real performance.
