Feminist Frequency on race and casting for The Hunger Games

One of our less predictable older students is enamored with The Hunger Games, which means there’s always something to have a conversation about.  She bust out the racism discussion this week, noted the character descriptions in the book, and rolled her eyes.  Her official edict was that people needed to “read the book" and "stop being stupid."

Maybe one of the best things about this movie is that it’s bringing the race conversation to a story that so many young people care about — and what if for each of those horrifying, outraged, racist comments about the casting, one young person who never necessarily encountered, recognized, or thought about racism before starts a conversation?
