Bent Out of Shape - by Jeff Yang of the San Francisco Chronicle.
THIS IS AMAZING. I urge you to comment and applaud this fantastic and brilliantly written article. \o/ \o/
ALSO! If you'd like to join in the protest at the Philly Feb 7 casting call, there's now a Facebook Event! Protest at The Last Airbender Auditions. It will be AWESOME to see a big turn-out this time around. More info can also be found here.
AVATAR: T-SHIRTS, BANNERS, BUTTONS*
People requested paraphernalia and I have started to create some.
Check out the zazzle store: AANG-AINT-WHITE. Still sparse, but growing! These products are all at-cost - this is not intended for profit, only to spread awareness.
Or better yet -- MAKE YOUR OWN! I have uploaded a set of printable images for you to download and make your own t-shirts, postcards, buttons, anything. It's cheap and fast and I'll be making more images later this week. If you want to use a slogan that isn't here, I take requests!
***I know these are generalizing the situation, but the purpose of the slogans is to incite interest and generate dialogue.
Thanks to ALL THE PEOPLE who helped come up with these. You guys are brilliant. And I'll be making more, I promise!
