    Maybe it's not so hilarious, but to not understand that Star Wars was always pretty pro-diversity and pro-women is sadly hilarious. Not to mention George's leanings on the Vietnam War and desire for female leads in the new films/content.

    Also....TFA is the highest grossing domestic film of all-time, we won't miss these fools.

    Interesting from one side it is anti-white but from the other side it is anti-black. I wonder what that might mean.

    I really don't think it's hilarious that some people can think like that. I've watched one on Youtube and some comments really wanted me to throw some puch out.

    As long as the world is a mirror of your soul, people who see racism everywhere are indeed the real racists.

    That it is in fact neither.

    Now, do we really need a thread like this full of ignorance from all aspects of the Real World cluttering up the boards here? Isn't there a better place for you all to yell at each other? I mean, besides the place I personally come to escape that crap and just enjoy Star Wars for what it is.

    I can only assume Reddit must be down.

    That it's neither. And reflects pop culture.

    Seriously, some people. One of the main lessons we have gotten from Star Wars is that the Rebels embrace diversity whereas the Empire is all about human supremacy over the galaxy.

    I guess this bunch of fools do not realize that for starters, our beloved Princess is a half-Jewish woman, so there goes their foolishness.

    They obviously don't care for Star Wars or the art of film. They are just seeking our attention. We must not give them the opportunity to spread their hatred.

    Not to mention that Vader was actually this guy:

    Also, I envy you for the fact that you saw SW in 1977. :)

    People, there is unfortunately going to be racists, misogynists, homophobes and bigots of all kinds always. The only thing we can do is make sure there is less and less of them with each passing year. Call them out, online and in the real life. The world is changing, maybe not as fast as we would like, but it's changing. You are either going to change with it or be left behind as a stain on the human kind.
