It shocks you how much racism there is about Rue, Thresh, and Cinna in the Hunger Game movie, amirite?

It makes total sense. I mean, there's no way there could be any black people in the future, right?

Lenny Kravitz makes the perfect Cinna. He could be purple and still be perfect for the part.

Exactly! They couldn't have thought of a better guy for the part. He just... I don't know... completely OWNED it.

Rue was said to be black in the books so thats the least understandable.

The book says both Rue and Thresh have dark skin and eyes. I don't know how that many people missed it.

I didn't realize that Rue was going to be black. They probably did mention in the book that she was, but most readers, including myself, got married to the idea that she reminded Katniss of Prim, so we all pictured her as a little blonde haired girl. Thresh and Cinna were casted perfectly.

And then there was Peeta. Played by Josh ** Hutcherson. Peeta was supposed to be this bulky, blocky guy, who isn't very attractive. And they use Josh Hutcherson. Okay, yeah, Peeta was supposed to be blond, but not 6'2'' with a freaking chiseled body. This wasn't supposed to be ** Twilight.

And not to mention he's not very attractive anyway. He has a butt-chin and pouty-eyes...

I missed it for about half of the book until towards the end Katniss said something about her being just like Prim except for her skin. But yeah, at least I noticed it at one point.

The two **** boys next to me at the theater kept making jokes, especially when she was eating the bird (fried chicken, they kept saying). I hate high schoolers.

I missed the part in the book where it said they were black. It wasn't really a big deal, I just didn't know.

I took note of it, on Rues part anyway, because it helped show the contrast between her and Prim.

Id pictured them all as having Indian-coloring. Not like Native American Indians, but Indians like Hindu and from India.

For some reason, because of his name, I couldn't help but think of Peeta as Indian, even though the author repeatedly stated he was blonde.

I can't even read "Peeta" in my head without it having a British accent. I thought they were all going to be British in the movie.

I imagined the districts having American accents and the Capitol having British accents because the book said Capitolites had weird accents.
