"I am the AUTHOR. I OUTRANK you." -- Franz Liebkind
I’m not sure if any of you know this. The two actresses at the top were both casted as Lavender Brown. Lavender Brown was a black girl BEFORE she had to kiss Ron.
While there is a throwaway line in Book 6 about Lavender having similar skin tone as Ron, there is no reason why Lavender Brown could not have stayed brown in the movies—especially since the roles of characters of color in the Harry Potter films, like Cho Chang and Dean Thomas, were substantially cut down.
