signal boost: the last failbender
default [trufflehog]
So, The Last Airbender is finally due to be released in cinemas. The deeply, deeply problematic casting of the film has been covered and campaigned against by Racebending for a long time.

ssj10 has written an exceptional post on the subject, urging everyone to think, to protest with their wallets, and not see this film.

Boycott this film. I am asking you with all of my heart not to give it any money. Please, just don't. If you knew nothing about the casting controversy before, and were considering a trip to the cinema, please reconsider and remember what you will be supporting. If you pay for this movie, knowing full well why its cast and its production are racist and problematic, then you are actively, in good conscience, supporting institutionalized racism. Period.

These Are My Colours
