I admit, I have not seen the movie, but I have read the book. Also, in the spirit of true disclosure, when I was reading the book, I did think of Rue as white, and her companion Trench as black. I did expect a little more from "The Hunger Games" fans . . . if only because being a "Hunger Games" fan means you know how to read, and people who read tend to be a little more tolerant.
