I hope people pay close attention to the larger social statements in this film.

(1) The revolution was sparked by the death of Rue, a sweet innocent Black girl
(2) The riots got started by the predominately Black sector

so true. and really, the whole trilogy is about lower-class people and/or people of color regaining freedom and taking back their power. jennifer lawrence has done a great job, but katniss is not white and never should’ve been cast white.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Another important note in the bolded!!!!

This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.

This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.

Honestly.. When PoC get to an age where they are able to deeply realize and internalize how intensely and directly racism affects them, as well as able to recognize the little racial microaggressions against them, it truly IS a traumatic experience. Its draining and depressing and painful and scarring. It can very easily make you lose the will to do anything or dream anything. And that is something that whites will never experience, thus never understand how deep this goes.
