Near the end of the hit film "Avatar," the villain snarls at the hero, "How does it feel to betray your own race?" Both men are white — although the hero is inhabiting a blue-skinned, 9-foot-tall, long-tailed alien.
Strange as it may seem for a film that pits greedy, immoral humans against noble denizens of a faraway moon, "Avatar" is being criticized by a small but vocal group of people who allege it contains racist themes — the white hero once again saving the primitive natives.

"Walt Disney was a racist too but I'm sure you show all those movies to your kids. Did you not wonder why it took nearly 60 years for a Disney movie to have a black girl?"
All the "white" princesses were treated as slaves in the beginning. I bet that would have pissed more than a few black people off if they had done the same with a black princess. That's probably why. As is, there was big stink over this movie when it was being created a year ago saying it was racist.
