So we watched hunger games last night, and although I really don't like "People killing people" movies I thought the acting was awesome and I loved the characters! However what's the deal with this huge Racial issue in this article? I can understand that some readers may have had a certain picture in their head of the characters, but is it really that big a deal to have black people playing those characters? Did the color of their skin really ruin the movie or what you imagined of it? Come on, we've worked so hard and people have sacrificed and suffered in order to be equal. Why do people need to segregate us socially by making these idiotic comments?
It's really sad to sit here and read junk like this and know that there are still people out there who think certain races are better or above others. What I have to say to people like that is, get over it! Get over yourself because if you keep letting all of that hate and ugliness pile up inside you, you will have no place in a happy life.
It just seems so incredibly ridiculous to me that people would behave this way, it's childish and hateful. You know what comes to my mind when I hear someone say something racist or I see something racist on TV? I get this really bad feeling inside like there's something evil there, like you're staring at the Devil himself through those people, then I think how sad that there will be no place in heaven for them if they don't change. So if you are one of those people, do you want people to think that about you?
I may be a little sensitive, but my mother is Philippino and I grew up watching people treat her badly or think she was uneducated because she has a thick accent. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to the store with her and had to stop someone in their tracks and tell them that they need show my mother respect and not treat her poorly. My sister is the same way only she is much meaner when it happens! The worst part though is that they don't think they're doing anything wrong, they behave that way to others so often it comes naturally to them. Well, for as long as I live racism is something I will never keep my mouth shut about because I have absolutely no tolerance for it. I know there are people out there who would say, "Just let it go and be the bigger person." Sorry, but being quiet about something like that just tells those people that there are no consequences for being a total pile of manure and go ahead and hurt people because no one will stand up to you! Uh no! Sorry but I'm not the kind of person to sit around and not say anything.
Sorry for the rant but this just made me so mad and I just had to vent!
