    Will the Death Troopers actually be able to shoot people or will they be like their white counterparts and miss all the time?

    No, but they'll get prosecuted for rough treatment of prisoners while their white counterparts get off free and clear.

    Stop ruining the narrative about the new Disney movies and SJWs ruining the film industry.

    Wait... You are being serious? You actually believe introducing a new black colored droid is part of some kind of agenda?

    Of course it is. Everyone knows that Droids Of Color have been systematically excluded from being fairly portrayed in movies for decades. Even when there is a token DOC, it's just to perpetuate stereotypes (like C3-PO- everyone knows that "gold" droids are good at languages).

    Finally non-white machine characters are getting the representation they deserve!

    I know the Empire was always supposed to be some space version of the Nazis, but "Death Troopers" in a black uniform... wow.

    I think they look great even if I am not a fan of the name "Death Trooper" either. The name is a play off Deathstar since they appear to be designated soldiers to defend the building of the station.

    Lot of good that did them, given they can't even put shields around their exhaust ports, leading straight down to their reactor.
