mekki: Rapmaster2000: mekki: Rapmaster2000: It's not complicated and I'm not calling you a racist. That you desire to be part of a race that would exclude you while simultaneously accepting the idea of race is mind-boggling.

You have a peeve because you think other white people don't consider you white enough. Do you have any idea how negative that is towards yourself?


Again,
[media.tumblr.com image 500x333]

I never said anything about people being unwilling to except myself. What are you saying? Just stop. You are making my head ache.

Oy, you're a dumb kid. Sweet, but dumb. I hope someday you feel that white people accept you. As for this Anglo-Saxon... I know about the Moors.

[www.gmanreviews.com image 520x220]

Now, tell me. Am I lying?

I have my father's (Irish) coloring. I am pale pink with freckles. I am saying that white people come in different colors, such as my dad's pale pink skin and my mother's olive skin and you are changing this to...what are you saying? What is this? Dammit, now I really need some Aspirin

Must I really post the pic of Jared and Jensen one more time?

/just stop
//seriously...


Look buddy everybody knows the Irish are not white. They are only slightly better then blacks. What are you trying to pull?

Nix Nightbird: All I know is that TFA has a HUGE SPOILER in it regarding the death of a main character.

Spoiling a story for everyone is a far worse crime than making ignorant racist comments on Twitter.

moothemagiccow: quoinguy: Didn't some people complain the gate keeper in Thor was black? Those complaints were lame, too.

Heimdall being black was a little ridiculous, but the actor was good and didn't call anyone a jive turkey. What was even more ridiculous was that one of the Asgardian warriors was Japanese, and had a Japanese accent. Like he just moved to Asgard from Japan. Riiight


This was based on the comic book, not the Norse myths. In one version of the comic book, Heimdall is an ebony-skinned giant of an Asgardian. And across ALL Marvel Comics versions of Thor, Hogun is a Mongolian-style warrior.

Honestly, in Thor I was MOST offended that they made Volstagg too damn skinny. He's supposed to look like this:

serial_crusher: What do you think it's like being one of the reporters who write articles like this? All those years of journalism school, only to spend your time writing articles about the things stupid people say on Twitter.



Seriously. We have a dangerous shortage of good journalism today, and this is the shiat we get instead. "OMG, a handful of idiots said something dumb on Twitter!"

News flash - there are a lot of stupid people in the world, and they occasionally say things. Since they are stupid, those things they say are often stupid.


KatjaMouse: Although, Donald Glover did point out that if you just read Spiderman as a book instead of a comic and just imagined the character, a poor kid living in Queens with his aunt and witnessed his uncle get killed in a violent crime, you'd likely picture a black or latino kid first.



Not if you lived around there in the 1960's when it was written.

You probably already know this but Ultimate Nick Fury is based on Samuel L. Jackson. In 2001, the artist even asked Jackson if he could use his likeness and, when he said yes,the writer began writing the character as Jackson (well, the badass Jackson from most of his movies).

//loathe the ongoing ignorant notion that "white" people come in only one shade of "white"

You know, some might consider it ignorant that you demand greater inclusiveness for those who may be considered white, rather than eschewing the entire notion of race that kept you as inferior Americans until about 100 years ago.

[media.tumblr.com image 500x333]

I'm still going, "huh."

Why is it every time you inform that Caucasians come in more than one flavor, someone always goes, "That's racist!?" What? Huh?

/seriously, huh?


I thought Rapmaster was saying that 100 years ago none of those darker shades of white would have been considered 'white' in the first place.. I thought he was saying that, instead of seeking to be considered part of the upper caste status quo -- white -- and arguing for 'more shades of pale' to be included; that it would be better to shrug off the entire notion of race in the first place. You know?

Good movie but it really needed to be two movies so they didn't have to leave so much out. The first movie should have ended with Katniss entering the tube and the second should have been the games. The only problem is that almost nothing exciting would happen in the first movie and the box office would have suffered for it.

Since when are Indians not considered Asians? Is it because they're "technically" Caucasian?

Because Asians are those funny slant eyed fellows who do Kung Fu and Indians wear feathers, ride horses, and like the fire water. Duh.

A year ago, when my parents and grandparents found out that my younger sister was seeing a black guy, they all refused to even talk with her. We're not even talking about some drug lord thug wannabe either. I mean, raised in Oakton, VA with a Masters in Political Science from UVA. Nope, still wouldn't talk to her.

Ummm... the villain was played by an Indian dude. This just added even more insult to the casting.

Yeah, I know, but I was trying to point out the white-ness of the cast. Yes, the one brown person cast as a major character in the series was Indian and not Asian, and he played the bad guy. FAIL

/just blew through the series again during a bout of the stomach flu, and now I want to re-watch the movie just to remind myself how bad it is.


though it clearly is still at odds with the cartoon, at least the entire fire nation seemed to be indian (or at least as far as i remember), so there was some semblance of continuity there. i don't have a problem with them giving the different nations clearly different ethnicities.

however, i do remember the water nation looking generally inuit (which also would have been ok) but that all the main characters were clearly white.

Well, they broke up since then, but that's exactly what my sister told me. She was dating him and another guy at the same time and then had to decide which guy she was going to be exclusive with.

I still have my hopes up for Patterson Joseph as the next Doctor in Doctor Who. You could cast him in anything and he'd improve it. He single-handedly saved Hyperdrive (though Kevin Eldon certainly worked overtime trying to up the quality level on that). I'd go see him as Joan of Arc if someone tried it. Or George Wallce.

....... if y'all were black, and stated that, many in the community, on all-black sites, would be offended. One of the paths to Nuclear Flame Warfare is 'screwing someone to get a pretty baby'. The other issue, of heritage and identity, also comes into play. How does the child who's parents do not identify with one another, identify his or herself? what happens when the child identifies in a way which is not socially acceptable? what happens when the child declines to say 'mixed' and says 'X'?

Add in the notion that looking as white as possible is most acceptable in one's 'exotics'...

Mixed babies are not the prettiest babies. They're just mixed.

All babies are beautiful. Even the ugly purebred lower caste ones ;)

I was chatting about this earlier. I pointed out that Sneakers is a good example of a movie that has black people in roles that both matter specifically to the character and roles that it doesn't matter what race the character is. Sidney Poitier's character needed to be black (I won't give away why in case you've never seen it). James Earl Jones' character didn't need to be black. I enjoyed them as actors in either case.

Then there's the movie industry completely farking up race issues: Chun in Remo Williams is a good example.

mekki: nono.melon: Those tweets are sad. The girl who played Rue was effing adorable. The book describes her as dark skinned, she reminds her of Prim, so she's a petite dark skinned girl with an air of innocence in a horrible world. Dammit what the fark happened to reading comprehension?

What I was more upset about was that it's supposed to be America, and yet only blacks and whites were represented. I remember watching the reaping scene and seeing a sea of white characters, and then it cuts to a lone black person and made me think WTF. Hollywood has been really bad about racial diversity in their movies lately as a whole. If there is a minority casted, they must be as stereotypical as possible. If it's a movie about minorities, there must be a lead white character that acts as the "savior" of the minorities or it must be about the stereotypical problems minorities face. I'm starting to get the impression they think minorities aren't qualified to tell their own stories or take part in any others' stories.

I'm ranting, but whatever, I've been ranting on this a long time. It's like the Spiderman change. People of nonwhite race read stories and watch movies about white characters and identify just fine, but white people can't do the same because their skin color isn't the same? WTF?

Well, I can't really blame the casting in this movie. The movie was filmed in Western North Carolina and they used many of the locals to fill in scene. Not many Asians in that neck of the woods. In fact, it would make sense since most of the large populations of Asians are in coastal cities like NYC and San Francisco and those cities, in the book, are underwater. So, probably the majority of the Asian population in Panem is dead, having long drowned. District 12 is around the same area as Asheville, NC, where the movie was filmed, so it's just a reflection of what sort population would be there. Namely, people of English, Irish and Scott-Irish background who make up over 77% of the population.


I assumed it was in WV/PA. There are a few coal mines in NC, but I don't think any are near Asheville. But your point stands.
