When I saw her on the screen I had the same reaction as when I first saw Sweet River Baines on the court and I asked myself, "hey, what's blackie doing out there?"

I totally pictured her as black in my mind. Dark skin = black to me. People need to get over themselves and stop being idiots.

I always pictured Rue as black and thought it was very obvious that that was what the author was describing without having to say "little black girl." I actually pictured her darker than the girl in the movie.

I remember seeing youtube videos of people's opinion on the perfect Hunger Games cast, and many of them cast white girls as Rue and I couldn't help but go WTF. Some people saw Rue as a girl with just tan skin. In the second book when meeting Rue's family, the author descibe them looking like a pack of dark birds huddle together. How more obvious can you get?

Lol I was born in 1991! I googled it right after and realized it was a joke (lol I figured it HAD to be something like that because who says things like that?!) but figured the old dude was appropriate for the thread anyway so left him lol

Actually really does not suprise me , have any of you actually listened to a pack of teens lately?

i have had in the last couple years NUMEROUS convo with the two older kids.
they have been on ,
jews and there money
any black sterotype you can think of
poor people being of less worth then rich
and muslims , ow those sterotypes are also horrid.

and it is not just my sons i have heard and flipped out on , there whole group of 20 or so friends are ALL THE SAME WAY.

I have even went so far as to call some of the younger ones parents and let them know how there children where acting, there horror matched my own , so it is really not an upbringing thing . as those types of things are never alowed in my home. i dont know where it is coming from actually.
