A hashtag about Star Wars made a trending topic on twitter today. The hashtag was #BoycotStarWars7 and what was the hashtag for? It’s basically ’cause of the diversity of the cast. For that reason alone, they claim that the film is too anti-white.
I would think the hashtag started was a direct attack against actor John Boyega… the guy wearing the Storm Trooper suit in the trailers.
Well I find this all pretty ludicrous. A diverse cast in Star Wars is nothing new. A diverse cast goes way back even to the original trilogy. The voice of Darth Vader who is none other than James Earl Jones is black. Lando Calrissian who was played by Billy Dee Williams is black. Mace Windu who was played by Samuel L. Jackson in the prequels is black. So the original trilogy and the prequels weren’t all just white actors.
If you watch the original trilogy and the prequels you would see actors and actresses in all different kinds of races which also includes Asian actors as co-stars.
George has always been diverse in his casting over the years.
Whoever started that hashtag on twitter is probably a racist against black people ’cause this person was bothered that John Boyega was all over the trailers.
I’m tired of people calling everything “racist” these days. When will it end?
I won’t boycott Star Wars “The Force Awakens” and I am a white guy myself. I’ll proudly go see the movie myself and I’m looking forward to it. I like the diverse cast and if people have a problem with it… fuck off.
