I like the implication in the second tweet that a twelve year old girl being black = not innocent. And by ‘like’ I mean ‘I am going to find you in real life, @sw4q, and I am going to punch you in the face’. Along with all the rest of them.
did these people not read the books?? her race is explicitly described in the book, more than once. it’s not even ambiguous. there is no guessing game. collins wrote her and most of district 11 as black for a very specific purpose. the creation of panem and the various districts and the people within those districts was not arbitrary.
and somehow a young black girl cannot be innocent and there is no remorse after her death? yeah, and trayvon martin’s murder and subsequent acquittal of his murderer happened in a void of individual crazy. no institutionalized racism here.
