That's always been one of my biggest problems with the film. The "bad guys" are actually kind of in the right.
I consider this to be one of the movie's strengths.

The evil "ugly" people are the ones who will improve the lives of billions, and the good "pretty" people are the ones who'll prevent this.
I think it COULD have been one of the strengths if they bothered to make it a plot point in the movie. Or even touch on it a little bit.
I always felt that the fact the Ba'ku were pretty white people was a huge weakness for the film. This movie, the aliens should have looked more alien and the Ba'ku were shown to be pretty white people simply because it would get the audience on their side in this conflict, even though the conflict is supposed to be a moral dilemma.
