And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

The portrayal of equality on this show is absolutely incredible. Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Avatar: The Legend of Korra has managed to equate everyone onto a level playing field.

In the world of Avatar, the only thing that matters is the heart and the drive to fight for what you believe in.

The fact that they went out of their way to have men and women fighting together was amazing. This show took it even further. They have created characters that are physically disabled in some way. Teo was paralyzed. Toph was blind. And Ming-Hua has no arms. However, in the world of Avatar, these people are not disabled or handicapped. They are fighters. They are a threat.
