"Straight Outta Compton" Casting a Bit Racist?

Now I've never had a chance to try out for any movies, so I don't know out the casting goes. However, I'm sure I wouldn't want to be in something that asks for the stereotypical or racist roles. Well now the casting crew is catching heat over what they requested for the N.W.A. "Straight Outta Compton." The casting agency wanted at least 4 groups of actors: hot models, light-skinned women, black chicks with weaves and dark-skinned girls who are poor, according to TMZ. Damn! Well the ad for the casting went viral and the casting crew calls it an innocent mistake. But wait, what's a mistake, that it went viral or the way they grouped the women? I wonder if the N.W.A. crew had anything to say about the casting.
