    In regards to Tiffany Boone as Savannah Snow and combining Ama into Lilian:

    Lets get this out of the way: I am not racist in the least and I think she's a lovely girl and probably a decent actress, but it makes absolutely no sense for her to be playing this part in the "Beautiful Creatures" movie. These books and this movie are set in a very southern, mostly white, town with small minded townspeople. She's playing the part of a DAR debutante, of a long line of DAR members, who's family was one of the founding families of this town. The DAR is an all white, extremely exclusive, southern sorority of women who spend all their time tracing family origins to the American Revolution. Her friends are the daughters of her mother's friends the way her mother's friends were the daughters of her grandmother's friends, and so on and so on. When it comes down to these townspeople, the point is that things stay the same in this town. People keep there mentality the same as much as they can down the generations. So no matter how wrong or ugly it is, there is no way on earth this character could ever be someone of color. The same way the "Ama" character could never be white.

    I don't agree with this mentality, but there's a point to it in these books. They're watering it down and mainstreaming it. It feels like they choose a black actress just to say, "Hey! These books might have bigoted, small minded townspeople, but this is Hollywood, and we don't want any of that! So lets remove any element that might not go over well with the public [Even though this is a hugely popular book series and the public already knows what this fictional town is like]... Someone get me a pretty token black girl for this part here... yes that will work and pull in the black teens. Oh no, we can't show any truly southern Creole women, it would make the African American community look bad [completely disregard the traditions and great history of those women because its not pc]. Lets combine that character with our super smart professor librarian... yeah, that looks better and is cheaper! Now we've never lived or even been to the South other than to shoot movies, but this seems spot on!"
