So I am apparently not the only one who was confused by the choice of actors for The Last Airbeinder. This kind of discrimination is really common in the film industry and needs to stop. This organization is trying to stop it: http://www.racebending.com/v4/about/what-is-racebending/

Discrimination is real. As a white woman, I never really noticed how much discrimination takes place around me until I started hanging out with African American and Native American (or black and Native as they prefer to be called) friends.
It is a lot more present in our society than we think. To stop it, we have to reexamine how we think and live and the images we are putting out to the world and the next generation.
