1. Rue and Thresh were both described to be black in the book. Collins didn't leave us with a Cinna description. She only described the clothes he wore.
2. I love how Katniss was described to have olive skin (skin color ranging from Asian to a native American/mixed race) and they got a white girl to play her and no one noticed or said anything about it :/ not saying Jennifer Lawrence was bad because she did amazing in that film, but still...
3. Does it really matter if Rue was black or not? Amandla did great. So they're basically saying that seeing a 12-year-old white girl die is sadder than seeing 12-year-old black girl die? It to doesn't matter. It's a 12-year-old DYING! People are so disgusting now, honestly.
Just saw the movie, just heard the rumour. Got to hand to all of you. Especially nicolesymone for her poignant remarks. You go girl. Tell those silly white folks how silly they are. Personally if I were you I'd be more a little more pissed about the leading black character being portrayed as adept at climbing trees... but hey... I'm a little more traditional when it comes racial indignation. And for the rest of you... feel free to look up an online thesaurus or dictionary. I'm sure with those resources and a half an hour you should be able to figure out what the f*ck i'm talking about. For the record I think your all idiots. But then I think most people are idiots. Worst part is I'm not that smart. Kind of a grim reality when you think about it.... Good movie though.
It was stated in the book
I also did not picture Rue as black I did not really picture Prim or any others races either. I was a bit confused over the lack of similarity in size.
The actress that plays Rue is 13 years old . Just think about that, and then think about the things you are saying about her portraying Rue as an African American ..
Your president is Black... why can't a character in a book be Black?... Ignorance at all levels... wow!! Maybe we shoud allow you racists to put your names in the tribute bowl at the reaping if it existed. Katniss was not a racist.. surely she'd take you guys out.
ARE SERIOUS! You people need to stop making this into an issue. So what if Rue is black if you read the book the author clearly describes her as African american but that does not even matter. If you have a problem with it then just don't watch the movie and stop being so STUPID.
Alot of you who are hating on Rue because she's black need to get a reality check.Why are you white girls so jealous and insecure. Take a good look in the mirror because you all are pathetic.Rue's character added alot of spunk and personality that you guys evidently dont have.
Peartree- please at least read the articles and understand the issues you're rudely and ignorantly commenting on to save yourself the embarrassment of looking like a racist imbecile. The problem here is ignorance, and you couldn't have provided a more solid, stellar example of that.
Why does it matter if Rue was black? She still was portrayed perfectly and was as awesome as I thought she'd be. Why be racist over a movie? Why be racist at all?
It also clearly states that Rue was going to be dark-skinned and I thought it was a great thing for Suzanne to add. Geez, people. Get over it.
