Well, some people never learn to read. And after recent research showing racists to be less intelligent than tolerant people on an average, what more could you expect from the makers of these comments who never cared to read that the three major characters in the series had dark skin color.

While the books never specifically use any racially distinguishing terms associated with their characters, the description of the characters shows them to be dark skinned:

“And most hauntingly, a twelve year old girl from District 11. She has dark brown skin and eyes …”

  
What
Where


“The boy tribute from District 11, Thresh, has the same dark skin as Rue…”

However, some fans have been very upset that the characters in the film – Rue, Thresh, and Cinna, are black.

Here are some incredibly stupid comments from diehard fans of Hunger Games on Twitter:
