The Hunger Games || Racebent Fancast:
Q’orianka Kilcher as Katniss Everdeen
There is no “race Katniss is supposed to be” by saying that you’re stereotyping that every woman who can use a bow must be Native American which is not very social-justicey of you.
Yes, I’m sure that that’s the only reason that a lot of people (including NDNs) are pretty sure she was intended as Native American you got me
Yeah as from what I’ve read the idea she is Native American (or another race that isn’t white) has nothing to do with her skills in archery but in the way in which she is described. The text says “Straight black hair, olive skin, we even have the same gray eyes. But we’re not related, at least not closely. Most of the families who work the mines resemble one another this way.” Katniss and Gale are described as having olive skin. I’ve heard some say well they’re just tan. But this is District 12. The people of the Seam who spend 12 hours a day in a coal mine are not gonna be spending their one day off in a tanning booth ya feel me? There’s other evidence too I just don’t have the bookmarks on my phone.
I like jennifer lawrence but i woulda loved this
