Iris West Casting Call Character Descriptions has Leaked for 'The Flash' TV Show

Yesterday Rapaport Casting tweeted a new photo that showed that The CW is on the hunt for their own Iris West to star along side Barry Allen (Assumingly Grant Gustin) in The Flash TV Show. Well today the guys over at Bludhaven Banter leaked the character descriptions for that casting sheet!
IRIS - 22-28 - African-American - As smart as she is beautiful, Iris is in grad school studying psychology. She's also Barry's mile a minute, fast-talking, quick-witted best friend. Her father, Detective West, took in Barry when his mother was murdered, and his father was wrongly accused and imprisoned for her murder. In a tough childhood for Barry, she was the one "not tough" thing. She's unaware of Barry's strong feelings for her.

DETECTIVE WEST - Late 40s to Early 50s - African American -Detective West is an honest, blue-collar cop who's seen it all. A soulful, funny caring father to Iris, and a surrogate father to Barry, West came up through the foster system himself. He took in Barry after his mother's murder and his father's imprisonment. He believes in Barry and supports Barry's efforts to prove his father's innocence.
So they are making Barry Allens Love Interest Black? Not to crazy given we have a black Hemidall and Nick Fury and potentially Johnny Storm. With the addition of Iris West could we see Wally West show up at some time also? They also go onto the start date for filming on the pilot episode is going to be as early as March 2014!
