You are 100% on Avatar being all about White Guilt.

Whether Avatar is racist is a matter for debate. Regardless of where you come down on that question, it's undeniable that the film - like alien apartheid flick District 9, released earlier this year - is emphatically a fantasy about race. Specifically, it's a fantasy about race told from the point of view of white people. Avatar and scifi films like it give us the opportunity to answer the question: What do white people fantasize about when they fantasize about racial identity?

Avatar imaginatively revisits the crime scene of white America's foundational act of genocide, in which entire native tribes and civilizations were wiped out by European immigrants to the American continent. In the film, a group of soldiers and scientists have set up shop on the verdant moon Pandora, whose landscapes look like a cross between Northern California's redwood cathedrals and Brazil's tropical rainforest. The moon's inhabitants, the Na'vi, are blue, catlike versions of native people: They wear feathers in their hair, worship nature gods, paint their faces for war, use bows and arrows, and live in tribes. Watching the movie, there is really no mistake that these are alien versions of stereotypical native peoples that we've seen in Hollywood movies for decades.

And Pandora is clearly supposed to be the rich, beautiful land America could still be if white people hadn't paved it over with concrete and strip malls. In Avatar, our white hero Jake Sully (sully - get it?) explains that Earth is basically a war-torn wasteland with no greenery or natural resources left. The humans started to colonize Pandora in order to mine a mineral called unobtainium that can serve as a mega-energy source. But a few of these humans don't want to crush the natives with tanks and bombs, so they wire their brains into the bodies of Na'vi avatars and try to win the natives' trust. Jake is one of the team of avatar pilots, and he discovers to his surprise that he loves his life as a Na'vi warrior far more than he ever did his life as a human marine.

Each time I watch this movie I think of Reader and how she is so much like Jake Sully, hates her own race and would rather be Black herself.

Thanks for the ridiculous assertion that one's vote in a Presidential election conveys explicit approval of every subsequent act of that President's Administration.

Well, my opinions could not possibly have been influenced by a movie I've never seen.

you're funny. I'm not giving any of you credit for knowing how stupid that is, I don't think most of you consciously do anything stupid, it just happens.
If you voted for obama in 08 because you wanted less if no involvment in the middle east, he made you look stupid as we are more involved now along with the u.n., starting ww3. so he didn't even need a republican congress to do it. Yeah we got bin laden but we are still chasing al c.I.a.da where ever the un says they are. And we keep liberating countries spreading freedom huh? So that's what iraq was too I guess? Probably not.

When you voted for Reagan you tacitly approved illegally selling arms to the Iranians and secretly and illegally funneling the proceeds to the Nicaraguan Contras.

That's your logic huh?

I have, there is no need for it. Why should we need to after we haven't been attacked since 9/11. Wouldn't it make more sense to just not allow knives on planes?
Besides, how can we determine how effective it is when we don't count the civilian deaths they cause anymore?

What will the Obama worshipers say when they learn the Syrian rebels joined together with all the terrorist organizations we as a Country have been fighting for a decade?

This is the 3rd time in 3 years that as a country we aligned ourselves with radical islamists to over throw the Government.

We allow radical islam to murder and rape our ambassadors.

we provide complete assistance to illegal citizens with a path to citizenship including Social Security and Medicare, and demonize those that are employed.

Facts point to America having a terrorist regime in Washington running the USA.

If we re-elect any incumbent, we deserve the doom they deliver.

That an Obama supporter can call North an enemy of the Constitution begs the question: Which nation's constitution?

You must have forgotten his role in trading with the enemy, violating federal law.
