The Hunger Games Bothers Me

Panem used to be America, and this book is set years and years into the future, so where are all the PoC? We see maybe two people who are mentioned to be dark skinned, but there should be a huge amount- in 2050, we'll be majority minority.

I like how Mockingjay never forgot that they are in the middle of a war. There's not much time for kissing and worrying about which boy to date when there's a countrywide rebellion on, people are dying every day,etc. I don't think Katniss could have chosen Gale after she saw how his anger and hatred towards the capitol had twisted him.
