PA #11 Dumb Racist People

Be warned. Rant coming.

Why are people hating “The Hunger Games” just ‘cause Rue, Thresh and Cinna are black?? It was an amazing movie, and it said right in the book that Rue and Thresh are dark skinned. HELLOOO USE YOUR BRAINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok. So Cinna could’ve potentially had light skin, but Suzanne Collins never actually said anything about his skin colour! So the people decided!
There were a lot of idiotic (and racist) people out there, who posted on Twitter and such that they thought the movie was worse, because Rue was black. Seriously, that is ridiculous! Rue was adorable! And if you are that focused on that the “good characters” must be white, then you should sit at home, in your little bubble, and pretend that the only people who exist in the world have white skin, blue eyes, and blond hair.
Hate to break it to you, but if you step outside, still thinking in that little bubble, you will be run over by a little thing called “REALITY”!
Get your heads out of your toilets and accept that ok?

Click that link. You'll see total boneheads who posted on Twitter about that. Seriously, click it, it'll blow your mind how idiotic people can be.

(P.S. Thanks for letting me rant)

I agree with you if i did anything fun this "spring break" it was go see the hunger games i didnt read any of the books and had limited knowledge as to what the plot was about but i loved the movie and to be honest rue was my favorite character the fact that instead of kiling eachother they stood side by side and helped one another was truely awesome and i cried a little when she died and the kat did the kiss 3 fingers sorry i dont know what it was but it was cool. People need to let things go and live with the fact that we live in a society where black people have rights and there equal to us,they shouldnt be judged because of there skin...ok my rants done too heheh.

People actually complained about that? Thats ridiculous! Theyre characters were absolutely perfectly chosen in my opinion. Also when I read The HUnger Games, I definitely pictured Cinna black. I think everyone in the movie did a good job of capturing their character from the book!
