Re: When Will White People Stop Making Movies Like "Avatar"?

I'd argue that the term "white people" is itself racist. It lumps a very large, very diverse group of people all in together based purely on the colour of their skin.
The same can be said of every single racial classification - for Asians there are Koreans and Vietnamese, for blacks there are Nigerians and Kenyans, etc.

Movies marketed towards a particular group always end up portraying everyone outside that group poorly.
Avatar is marketed towards as large a net as possible, actually.
