    Hey everyone.
    So I know there is another thread that is already discussing the interview already. But the clip itself had not been posted on that thread (if I didn't miss it) and I just posted it now, on page 5....
    So I am going to create a new thread with just the clip itself that I just put up on my channel. As it was on page 5 I don't want this clip to get lost in all of the discussion as I think people should see how he said "White Slavers" before they make up their minds and interpreted a certain way.
    There is a bit of my commentary afterwards so you don't have to listen to that if you don't want too. =D
    Here is my post from page 5 of the original thread.

    Here is the Clip and our few thoughts. Not the best word choice but it is a live interview (well, recorded in front of a camera on a sound stage) and he is trying to get his point across. I don't think it was meant to come off as badly as the press is making it out to be.
    But I don't think it was also a great choice of words.
    I still highly respect the man. After all, he is the Father of Star Wars.

    I'm sure he saw what they did with Finn and it left a bad taste in his mouth. You don't go from making Red Tails to watching a franchise you created use a black man as a side kick and misdirection. Something you spent the last decade trying to fight. The horrible portrayal of black people in movies. I believe his wife lit a fire under his ass after watching Finn being used for cannon fodder.

    Thanks for posting the video in that thread. It's quite redundant to have two threads about the same thing, so let's close this one and stick to the original one.
