L.V. Anderson wrote an article for Slate discussing the response that she received from two of the individuals that were featured on this site.
Based on what I’m seeing in this article (along with some angry messages that I received), it’s probably an opportune time for me to clarify something.
Not ALL of the tweets that I featured on the page were things that I considered to be tainted with racism.
The first tweet mentioned in this article (someone that pictured Dakota Fanning as Rue) is one example. This was something that I would categorize under “Reading Comprehension Failure”.
The second girl, however, that said, “WHY IS RUE BLACK SIGH”… yeah, you’re not fooling anybody. A lot of the commenters on that article are using the fact that she’s from Singapore as an excuse for what might be poor english on her part. To me… a “Sigh” is pretty international in the context that she used it in.
Also, according to the article, Ms. Anderson has been trying to get in touch with me… I did not know this. I’ll see if I can get in touch with her.
