Finnick Odair — Finnick is 24 years old and described as being very handsome and tall with tan skin, bronze hair, and stunning sea-green eyes.
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.
