SIGN THE PETITION
It seems that quite a few people are still under the impression that this is just a bunch of fanboys and fangirls butthurt that the movie rapes our precious canon. This isn't the case. What we're protesting against is racism. A specific case of racism, a specific type of racism perpetuated by Hollywood, but it's about racism. Not about "canon compliance". If you take ten minutes to read the press release, you'll understand. Hell, if you take a half hour to peruse the rest of the site and the places it links to, you might feel as completely outraged as the rest of us do. You might even be moved to pass it on and spread the word. Which would be pretty cool of you.
Don't have ten minutes? Here, look at this: ( adapted from racebending with some very minor Avatar spoilersCollapse )
And you know something? I think it's fucking unconscionable that a Facebook group protesting changes to the Facebook interface can draw hundreds of thousands of members within a week, while a Facebook group dedicated to protesting blatant racism, in which Hollywood has engaged for decades, draws fewer than 3000 over several months. And here you thought racism was over. Surprise!
On with the show.

Also, I have been watching episodes of BSG during my bike-time (and then another episode with incapricious afterwards :D) All I can say is holy shit, Starbuck is AMAZING. I wish I were caught up so I could watch the finale on Friday with the rest of you BSG cats, but that's not temporally possible, so I'll stretch it out instead. :)
