also an addendum to the hunger games slide, when they put out a casting call for the role of Katniss, they specifically asked for only caucasian actors to audition, which left out any possibility for any amazing PoC actors to have been discovered.
i hope this was informational and i didnt leave anything major out. if anything is wrong or needs to be updated, message me and i’l fix any fallacies!
As much as I agree with this, Olive skin is used to describe European’s with ‘darker’ complexions. I’ve never in a million years thought of ‘olive skin’ as black and I’m a writer. If I were to describe a black person I would use words like ‘ebony’ or ‘chocolate’ or even something as simple as ‘dark brown’. Katniss is a white girl who’s been out in the sun her whole life.
Katniss Everdeen is an awful example to prove the point this post is trying to make. I mean, how is she supposed to be black if her sister Prim is blonde and fair-skinned?

Finished. Didn’t do as much as I could have considering I’ve got a shoulder injury. Good news is that I did a tiny bit or cardio/strength when shoveling the snow out of my driveway! =D Yay!
Tomorrow is a cardio day, I’m thinking of tyring to get in a small run, though. n.n
