Everything Is White, Yo

Did you know there's going to by a live-action movie based on the hit Nickelodeon cartoon The Avatar?  Yeah, it sounds pretty cool to me, so on a whim I looked up pictures to see what the actors portraying the characters look like.  Sokka and Katara are played by two white kids.  This saddens me greatly.  I mean, I know it wouldn't make sense to cast some black kids or something, but in the cartoon they're obviously BROWN.  It just, ugh!  Why does everyone have to be white?

This is why I get so discouraged and don't even TRY to put myself out there for potential gigs.  It's like, WHY?  You're just going to hire the white girl anyway.

Dangit, now I'm grumpy.

EDIT:  No, I'm not grumpy, I'm ANGRY.  I'm really upset now.  I'm ready-to-cry upset, which makes me MORE upset, which in turn makes it harder not to cry.

So

Angry
