    Back then it was because it drew very natural comparisons to Star Trek, which did have a very diverse cast.

    Its BS Lando is a great character but there was criticism that he was a token inclusion. But there was criticism that he betrayed the heroes, the fact that he hit on Leia played to negative stereotypes and so on.

    I think over time the naysaying dropped more recently criticisms of stereotypes or poor portrayals of stereotypes are louder.

    Historically in movies at times black men were portrayed as after white women. Thus the complaint at the time ESB came out was that by hitting on Leia Lando played into that.

    One of the most beautiful aspects of Star Wars is that skin color difference between members of human species has no any meaning whatsoever next to all other alien species around. Human species, that's it and its absolute truth.

    Just like The Force, that created us all as the same and equal , I find also to be a fundamental truth.

    hopefully that sort of blast will stay in the history books. Jeez that makes my skin crawl.

    absolutely

    i don't like to talk about this stuff on forums (pretty sure it's against the rules for starters), but there will always be racists.. i just hope that one day in our lifetime there will be so few that they aren't a part of our lives anymore - because we don't want them to be.

    anyhoo, back on topic... rumors !

    i heard that mike (i'm a tool) zeroh thinks that Snoke will be called Victor !

    that's ironclad... it's as good as canon :D

    I think Victor was the code name they used in the Black Series Figure leak from last week so in way he actually finally got something semi-right we'll see even a stopped clock is right twice a day :D

    (if you want them to go away, ignore them. they thrive on attention. without it they will wither and die. that's why it seems so much more inflated now because race baiting and race wars is such a big media draw)

    But I think if the discussion is within the perimeters of the thread and about Star Wars it should be okay...

    He was the mastermind and the main antagonist of Epsiode VI but I'd argue that Vader was the main villain because he had much greater impact on the main trio than any other bad guy.

    Diversity? Come on.

    Show me someone besides George Lucas that was willing to put historically oppressed Ewoks, Sand People, or Wookies in movies before Disney entered the 21st Century. Star Wars racist. Bah!

    Unless he is now claiming the Victor thing after the figure leak. I pay no attention to him so I don't know what came first
