Even though the character of Rue in Suzanne Collins' book "The Hunger Games" is described as having "dark brown skin and eyes," many moviegoers were surprised -- some negatively -- that a young black actress played the role in the film. While some of the comments are mere surprise, others are more opinionated. "Why does rue have to be black not gonna lie kinda ruined the movie," wrote one moviegoer on Twitter. http://entertainment.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/03/26/10873098-some-hunger-games-fans-upset-that-character-of-rue-is-black

What's the Hunger Games, Who's "Rue," who the **** is Suzanne Collins and when you have great books like the Jack Reacher kick ass-right the wrongs, take no prisoner series by Lee Child, why should anyone read that **** let alone care what color a fictitious character is? :idk:

I read those tweets. I haven't read the book or seen the movie but if the character is described as having dark brown skin, what the **** can one expect?

Don't look now but it seems they made her a dude, too, unless they mean the kid.
