Amandla Stenberg, who played Rue in the first Hunger Games movie, may only be 16 years old, but has wisdom beyond those years. Stenberg posted a high school video project to her Tumblr account and she’s definitely dropping some knowledge when it comes to cultural appropriation. Especially when it has to deal with white girls stealing black girl’s styles.

Stenberg doesn’t leave anyone out in her video, and even gives props to Azealia Banks, who recently had a similar rant on Twitter.
Major props to Amandla, and hopefully she continues to teach these folks out here and shines in Hollywood.
