I think Harvey said it best in whatever other thread this came up in...

Yes he is in a black costume. Yes he is from the "dark side". Yes he is voiced by a black man.

But he's father to a very white boy with lightly colored hair. So A New Hope can be racist. But not any of the other movies.

I noticed the brothas really ain't into Star Wars, or Star Trek. It's mostly a White, and Asian thing.

But...Samuel L Jackson was all over that shit.

The only reason he is in the prequels was that he begged Lucas...he was like "please, just put me in a storm trooper costume and let me stand around in the background, I just want to be a part of this" and Lucas gave him a much larger part.

The whole franchise is a racist sham because Darth Vader was played by a black guy.


She obviously doesn't know the awesomeness that was Lando.

Chasing Amy...has anyone noticed that Ben Affleck seems to be an angry white guy these days (but for leftist causes?)

Gone Girl wasn't too leftist. SJWs seemed to hate the movie with the passion of a thousand MHPs.

That movie came out when I really young, so I don't recall much of it. Looking back at it now from the pieces I do remember... it's really a strange movie. The very young , and full of testosterone Ben Affleck could of had any woman he wanted, and yet he was playing video games all day, and wanted to spend the rest of his life with some jump off. He couldn't even take full advantage of that relationship. How did he not get his way more sexually experienced Bi girlfriend into threesomes? It's like the movie was written by a woman.

Star Wars/Star Trek is a mostly male thing. Either you are into sci-fi or you aren't. Race and/or ethnicity had nothing to do with it. Nite of you are talking about people who dress up as characters and/or patronize conventions then yeah that is a white male thing

Star Trek has historically leaned male, but Star Wars managed to be much more gender neutral in it's fandom. It had much wider appeal to general audiences and managed to connect with many who typically don't get into sci-fi. As much as I hate the prequels the spin off cartoon of them Clone Wars have enjoyed a sizable following in the younger female demo due to some of the stronger female character work it featured.

On November 26, Justin Renel Joseph visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and was horrified by what he saw. Racist artworks, hanging right there on the walls of this so-called “museum.” These works, including but not limited to four specifically named paintings, blatantly misrepresented the hair texture and skin color of an important historical figure:

In each case, the Racist Artworks depict the historical and public figure of Hebrew descent, Jesus Christ, as a blonde haired, fair-skinned, Aryan adult male, despite that an adult male native to the Middle-Eastern region of Hebrew descent who existed from approximately 1 B.C.E. to approximately 33 A.D. would not be genetically disposed to possess such features (i.e., blonde hair, fair-skin and other such Aryan features) and despite that historical accounts of Jesus Christ describe him with hair like wool and skin of bronze color.

....

Plaintiff suffered “emotional and psychological harm” from exposure to the offending art, and four days later, he sued, demanding among other things that it be removed from the museum.
