Racist Morons React to The Hunger Games: Rue is Black?!?

by at . Comments

Let's get this out of the way:

On page 45 of Suzanne Collins' novel, on which The Hunger Games is based, the author writes of Rue: "She has dark brown skin and eyes, but other than that's she's very like Prim in size and demeanor..."

So, yes, any reader of this franchise should be aware that the female Tribute from District 11 is African-American, as portrayed by Amandla Stenberg on the big screen. Not that it should matter, of course... but apparently it does to a slew of supposed fans

Consider the ignorant, racist Tweets many have sent over the past few days:

Racist Tweets

Fortunately, these idiots are in the minority, as The Hunger Games sky-rocketed to a record-breaking box office haul this weekend and has been generally well received by critics and theater goers alike.

As for these morons? If only Katniss could get them in her bow-and-arrow crosshairs...

---STILL MORE predictive programming for 'Agenda 21'
and the capstone EUGENICS op. NO MORE ---and WAY LESS. Wait do you really think that the government educated teens on this site know anything about agenda 21 or even care? Basically, for you teens, this movie and book is about your planned future when your leaders implement the UN one world government. Poverty depravation and the culling of the herd will be the norm. The author is fully aware of the plan and either supports it or is trying to warn you. I'm not sure which.

Its so idiotic what these ignorant people are saying about this Rue. However, its okay for whites to paint their skin and portray blacks, native americans, ect. Anyone who sees such a problem with this little girl is obviously racist, idiotic, and arrogant. What makes you think only whites can act in movies?

Its so disappointing that people are freaking out over a minor thing like race. If you are truly appalled by the fact that the characters are black in the movie, i bet u wouldn't complain to the amazing writer who envisioned this awesome series. But I guess people are just to ignorant these days.
