Mostly British (fairly pale, brown hair, blue/grey eyes), got a bit of Irish and eastern European each from a few generations back and from opposite sides of the family, got a few other small bits too, plus not blood but my stepfather is South African.

My father is a full blood Englishman from Southampton and my mother is mainly a mix of Scotish and French blood. I've ended up looking quite mediterranean, look for yourself on my profile.

But a white guy is the hero, like that io9 article said. Though Avatar does make an effort to subvert the worst parts of the formula.

Not really... Only after he becomes Na'vi (and is still worse at most things than the Na'vi )

You know, we're all descended from the "African Eve" anyway. At the root of your family tree are black people. Which would make watching Roots more poignant.

Does race matter?


Because even if your intentions are good, looking at things in terms of race is still racism.

I don't think racism is as huge a problem as it was a hundred years ago and before.

...But although the story in Roots is quite inspiring, it was still largely plagiarized from another fictional book called The African, ironically written by a white guy.

True, but it's still a problem.

Oh, and in case anyone was wondering, I'm a 1/4 Mexican and white. Also, I'm part Na'vi inside.

My father's side is mostly Scot, plus a smattering of Irish, German, and, of all things Seneca. (a daughter of Ga'int'wake, for what it's worth)
My mother's side, even tho she was born in France, is Polish big time (very ethnic), French by nationality not ethnicity, but some last names indicate a mix of Ukrainian and Czech ethnicitys, likely some Lithuanian, plus a family lore of being Uzbek(???).
Call me a mutt.

Aihwa, if you have to ask if race matters, oh yes, it ALWAYS matters. Maybe not to you, but keep in mind, even today if you ask for a Jamesons in an orange bar, you may escape fewer teeth than before...
