Toy Soldiers - They Chose the Black Guy?
In the film, Billy (Sean Astin) leaves campus to bring information on the terrorists to the US Army. Billy takes too long to get back to the school for the hourly count of the students. The terrorists count the students but come up one short. So they count again. This time the terrorists grabs a student from the line and says "I already counted you!" (So we are to assume the students decided to send a kid from the front of the line to the back to get recounted in place of Billy)
The problem is the student they decided to get recounted was one of the four black kids, Hank (T.E. Russell), in a school of 100 white kids.
I would hope that the students would have been a little smarter and chosen a less obvious student to get recounted.

Illogical or even stupid decisions by characters aren't slip ups. It just shows that they are prone to making illogical or stupid decisions, just like every real person.

I don't think this was a slip up at all. In fact, this was probably intended to let the black boy have a little bit of a bigger part in the movie.There is certainly nothing wrong with that. It dosen't matter who they chose, a white or black person, the terrorists(being smart minded) would have most likely noticed the person being recounted anyways.
