One of the elements that I disliked the most about the finale was how they handled Korra as the Avatar. Looking at the series as a whole, I didn’t like how they handled benders and bending in general, and bending privilege specifically, but I’ll get to that in a bit. Let’s just, at first, go over what the Avatar is.

-Master of all four elements.
-The great bridge between the natural and the spiritual worlds.
-The spirit of the planet in human form, reincarnated endlessly to know human experience and bring balance to the world.
But there was no scarcity of food and water in Calhoun’s universe. The only thing that was in short supply was space. This was, after all, “heaven”—a title Calhoun deliberately used with pitch-black irony. The point was that crowding itself could destroy a society before famine even got a chance. In Calhoun’s heaven, hell was other mice.
In a way, the creatures had ceased to be mice long before their death—a “first death,” as Calhoun put it, ruining their spirit and their society as thoroughly as the later “second death” of the physical body.
I know it’s easy to stereotype, but no one in Houston really has an accent at all. At least, not as predominately as I’ve experienced in the actual south. Sure, we got people who wear the cowboy hats and boots running around, but the fact is that Dave is a Houstonian. He lives in the fourth largest city in the country. Instead of this
which I’m sure exists more in the north or west, Dave would live somewhere that looks like this
and we even got a chinatown isn’t that just so yeehaw round up dem cattle pardner.
