HALLO EVERYONE. MY NAME IS THE BOULDER. THE BOULDER IS UPSET ABOUT THE RACEBENDING OF THE FILM ADAPTATION OF THE BOULDER'S FAVORITE ANIMATED SERIES: Avatar: The Last Airbender.
The Boulder was disgruntled to hear about the casting of Caucasian Actors as ethnically Asian characters. In this community, The Boulder will explain why this disgruntles The Boulder. You may also post to this community, although you should try to be NICE, because the Boulder likes nice people.

Policy on viewing The Last Airbender: racebending.com does not condone the illegal viewing of this film. Our stance is boycott.
What this Community is For:
Up to the minute updates on the ongoing protest and outcome of the protest against The Last Airbender
Reports on the continuing practice of white-washing and racebending in Hollywood after The Last Airbender
Exploring and celebrating the canon of the Avatar: The Last Airbender world.
Outside influences that create systemic racism in our entertainment and media and how that influences America culturally.
Finding ways to defeat Toph, since she hurt The Boulder's feelings.
What this Community is NOT For:
Trying to convince people upset about the "racebending" or discriminatory casting practices of The Last Airbender that they have no right to be upset. GOOD LUCK. (But if you would like to try, please limit long-winded counter-arguments to under this post: Fire Nation Man.)
Focusing on why the movie does not meet your personal fan visions and dreams.
THE BOULDER wants to find out who is responsible for this mess. This is almost as silly as when we cast an Earthbender as Fire Nation Man at Earth Rumble VI. (Except THIS IS NOT EARTH RUMBLE.)
