I was pumped about the Hunger Games. Until I learned that a black girl was playing Rue.
And for the record, im still pissed that rue is black. Like you think she might have mentioned that..? Is that just me, or….
After watching the hunger games preview 6 times in a row, I realized Rue is black. Whaaaat?! #shocked
@KatrinaOrsini EWW rue is black?? I’m not watching
Sense when has Rue been a nigger
HOW IN THE WORLD ARE THEY GOING TO MAKE RUE A FREAKIN BLACK BITCH IN THE MOVIE ?!?!?!??! lolol not to be racist buuuuut…. I’m angry now ;0
Why is Rue a little black girl?

Seriously, people, you may be able to whitewash things in your mind but you can't do it in the real world.
