The next one is August 25, so yeah, I think so.

As for assuming people's nationality, I think it's *very* odd that Bolin, who grew up with Toza, and one of the most racially diverse cities in the ATLAverse, acted so surprised that Korra was an "earthbender." That was a hiccup I could never quite figure out.

It's always those with Republican privilege being racist towards the Earthbenders of the local Southern Water Tribe. Those dark skinned girls couldn't possibly bend earth.... [/sarcasm]

Agreed with Loopy.

The way she dressed one would easily assume she is from the Water Tribe and I don't think those areas are as diverse yet. Pretty much the only people who have fur on their clothing are the people from the Water Tribe.

My guess is that he assumed she was a water bender because she was new to the city, while there are people of mixed nation in the city it's much less common outside of it.  If he thought she just got there from the south pole then it wouldn't be too wild an assumption to think she;s full water tribe heritage.
That and Bolin must put his foot in his mouth at least once an episode.

^I think it's safe to assume that 90% of RC population is comprised of mixed nation heritage with the possibility of Water Tribe citizens being rare (The city is on EK soil and originated from the FN after all). Plus, look at Korra's clothes. They don't have that 1920's style like everyone else in the city does so it's kind of a given.

He doesn't *know* she's new to the city right then. He just randomly met her sneaking around in the probending building. He didn't know anything about the fiasco with the police or where she was from.

That and Bolin must put his foot in his mouth at least once an episode.

I'd take social faux pas over being a jerk any day.

^I think it's safe to assume that 90% of RC population is comprised of mixed nation heritage with the possibility of Water Tribe citizens being rare (The city is on EK soil and originated from the FN after all).

Then waterbending probenders must be heavily sought after, or else paid to come from other places.

I think Aang took steps to encourage Water Tribe people to come to the city, which was meant to be a melting pot.

If this were really the case, a sport that was only fire and earth would spring up, maybe alongside the existing matches. (maybe there is one)

Bolin said very clearly he assumed she was a waterbender because of her "water tribe get-up" (clothing)

It's legit reasoning, I feel, since most people in the avatar universe dress to their respective nation. If they're a blended family like mako and Bolin, they dress according to their element.

Assuming Korra is a water bender makes a lot of sense lol poor Bolin.
