Why do people care who voices a character? Shouldn't whoever sounds most like the creator's vision for that character be picked, whether it's a black woman playing a white character or a white woman playing a black character?

Yes.

This is like being upset that Linda and Tina Belcher are voiced by men or Bart Simpson being voiced by a woman. What's next? Should we be upset that Simba wasn't voiced by an actual lion? This really just seems like a non-issue.

I think what is more important is to get an actor who can play that part well and with respect for the character they play, regardless of their gender. Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl comes to mind.
Was anyone upset that Redmayne was playing that character even though he himself is not transgender?

Just my two cents.
