Subject: RE: BS: New Harry Potter Film (Prisoner of Azkaban
Hi - first of all - I wasn't using Friends in a positive way - so I have little comments on it when it comes to race, etc.

In my 11:45 posts I clearly say that I do not think that the books/movies are required to be racially diverse.

I initially brought up the topic of racial diversity as a possible "talking point" that parents and teachers might use in conversation with kids (and adults as well!) It was one of 5 points that I put together while writting my comments. It was not supposed to be an indictment of the books/movies. I was just suggesting that if the books/movies focus on mostly white characters, that that would be something to discuss.

That comment was taken and seemingly was felt that the books/movies needed to be defended. I responded to the defenses. That was all.

Thank you again.

By the way - two people have PMed me and told me I shouldn't "hijack" this thread with my critisism. I hope you all know I wasn't intending to do so.
