She's the first woman of colour to take the 007 codename

Lashana Lynch is to star in the next James Bond film- as agent 007. Here are 3 other women of colour who managed to shake and stir this famously macho franchise. 🍸👙💪🏿🇬🇧

    She looks like someone who would win track championships in high school and then you test her for steroids and find out she has a Y chromosome.

    Even when they're passing the 007 code to someone new (like how codename M has been passed around) because the director said so, This will be the first time of my life to ignore the franchise completely until they either recast it with someone else, Or at least have a different codename for her. Call us racist, call us sexist, however you like it, 007 has always been displayed and played by iconic male actors. It's only fair to let his codename rest in peace and let another successor take the lead, instead of using the excuse of codename passing to let an actress take the role for the sake of diversity and milking the franchise with 007. But the Hollywood industry is not there to negotiate - however they like to make money, it's up to them.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand I'll be sure to skip this one. 007 is a man, not a woman. Its Bond, James Bond. Not Jamie Bond.

    James Bond is a male. If they want to do a oo series for female it is not oo7 and her name will not be James Bond.

    People, she is NOT the new James Bond. Bond is still Bond. But according to the franchise he is retiring and she is getting his number - 007 - not his identity. There have been several 009 agents in the franchise. One was assassinated in the pre-opening credits scene of 1983's OCTOPUSSY. Then in SPECTRE, the car that was intended for Bond was instead given to 009 after Bond was temporarily relieved of duty - a replacement 009. Just like the codename M has been passed around as each one either retires or dies. So instead of retiring the code 007, they are just giving it to someone new.
