I posted yesterday about the casting for the upcoming Avatar movie.  Well, the internets being what they are, there has been a fairly massive reaction, culminating here with what you can do

I know a lot of you guys don't know this show particularly well, and a lot of you also probably don't care.  Hell, I don't know this show particularly well, although I'm familiar with the basic premise.  But...well, I was pretty upset when they whitewashed the Earthsea movies, and I think there are some good reasons to be.  (Incidentally, read that essay even if you've never read Earthsea.  Really.  It's very, very good.)  I'm certainly not the best person to explain why we should care, but...look, if we let them get away with it now, they'll just keep on doing this kind of thing, which is, frankly, really ridiculous.

So, yeah, I'm writing a letter.
