Why did your racist friend Rachel immediately default to me being “ghetto.”
And why are you speaking to me on her behalf. She’s a big girl. She can speak for herself.
Mind your fucking business.
My name is Ben, but I don’t think i’d really like us on a personal basis. I don’t know you, nor do you know my friend, Rachel. So I suggest you shut your fucking mouth. Leave her alone. Leave your rude comments somewhere else. People make mistakes, and to have someone go all insane as fuck over something like this ridiculous. Get out. Leave her alone. And shut the fuck up.
How do you have a HUNGER GAMES FAN BLOG and “Accidentally” say “Finnick is going to be your blonde hair blue eyed boy.” And say you knew he had Bronze hair but made a mistake. You made a mistake and spoke what your racist little heart wanted Finnick to be? A white, “Blonde Hair Blue Eyed Boy.” It’s not a mistake, it’s called a racist Freudian Slip. So WHOA to you. YOU are the one who showed your TRUE feelings about how you see Finnick being. And for the record, Finnick is a (fictional) MAN. Not a boy. And he’s not blonde OR blue eyed.
WORST HUNGER GAMES FAN EVER.
And I am HARDLY Ghetto. For the record I am not a Black person. But of course anyone who would be a fan of a Black Actor must be a Ghetto person. Stop being daft.
hold the fucking hate train guys. yes, actually, i have read the books. I read them religiously and the fact you’d assume otherwise is sickening. i had this blog before the movie even came out. pardon me for making a mistake, you dont needa go all ghetto kick ass on me. I’m aware finnick has bronze hair and sea green eyes, but thank you for pointing it out. tumblr isnt supposed to be a place to show people up, jesus. sorry.
Sorry I left for so long, guys. This whole thing started blowing up and even tho there was just as much support as there was opposition, I really started taking the anti-Jesse people personally. Maybe because I didn’t expect the reaction that we were getting. I felt like there was this book that so many of us loved but half of us read one book, where Finnick could be someone who looked like Jesse and the other half read a book that said Finnick was White, Blonde and Blue Eyed. They were so convincing about it that I started to doubt myself.
Today I found this quote from Suzanne Collins herself:
“It is a time period where hundreds of years have passed from now. There’s been a lot of ethnic mixing. But I think I describe them as having dark hair, grey eyes, and sort of olive skin.”
The author herself admits to NOT WRITING A TRILOGY THAT IS FULL WHITE PEOPLE. How is this future world, written as the future of our world now, a nation of mostly white people, where white people are both the heroes and villains and minorities are minor characters? How is that the future when in 2011, white babies were the minority (and the numbers continue to decrease today.) Face it people, the future is a future of Mixed Race people. Mixed race leading Characters. Mixed race leading men.
Yet, Lionsgate and a huge population of Hunger Games fans want to go against the future that Suzanne Collins created and Whitewash it. Shame on ALL OF YOU. Shame on ruining something that we all loved.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD EVERYONE! READ THE DAMN BOOK!
FINNICK IS NOT BLONDE AND BLUE EYED.
Simply because I’m sick of hearing all these racist motherfuckers going “HE NEEDS TO BE WHITE AND BLONDE HAIRED AND BLUE EYED”.
Go read the book. Like actually read it.
And then after you’ve realised how wrong your physical description of Finnick is, maybe you should start to question why your view of the world is so white-washed.
RACIST HUNGER GAMES FANS GTFO!
i am so fucking pissed my blood is boiling.
At first I was upset about the Rue and Thresh controversey because people got mad about the fact that they were black in the movie when they were CLEARLY DECSRIBED as having DARK BROWN SKIN in the books. And even if you don’t imagine a character as black right away saying that a casting director made a “bad decision” based solely on the race of the actor is complete and utter BULLSHIT.
You do not simply choose to ignore the fact that they are actors who played their parts wonderfully just because you felt uncomfortable that every character on screen wasn’t fucking pansy ass whit like you.
I am so tired of watching my words when I talk about this. ITS FUCKING RIDICULOUS.
also because the finnick odair tag is full of basic shits
i hope you all wake up one morning and realise everyone you have ever known is played by Jesse Williams
