If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Khan being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.
And by probably I mean definitely.
I think that the ambiguous quality of Katniss’s ethnicity in the books allowed you to think whatever you wanted about her. From my supposedly rational point of view, I imagined her being like those Nat Geo photos of “What the average person will look like in this many years” By that point in the future, all people would likely be mixed races (especially lower class folks). The film had to choose SOMEONE. You can’t just have someone in a morph suit from Scanner Darkly play the role. I’m sure the same people who complain now might complain if it was any other sort of person. I hate tumbler racisim and racisim justice.
