    "Boycott 'Star Wars VII'" Movement Launched; Movie Called "Anti-White"
    [​IMG]
    Walt Disney Studios
    read one tweet from an account calling itself "End Cultural Marxism." (A subsequent tweet from the same account read "A friend in LA said #StarWarsVII is basically 'Deray in Space,' " — a reference to civil rights activist DeRay Mckesson. "Jewish activist JJ Abrams is an anti-white nut.")

    Another Twitter account, calling itself "Captain Confederacy," similarly griped that"SJWs [Social Justice Warriors] complain about White artists 'misappropriating' culture created by blacks but then celebrate a non-White Star Wars." Yet another complaintread that the movie should be boycotted "because it's nothing more than a social justice propaganda piece that alienates it's core audience of young white males."

    A Twitter account named after the hashtag has been set up to promote the hate-filled hashtag and retweet comments posted using it.

    Ignoring the fact that, while hardly a bastion of cultural diversity, even the earliest Star Wars movies featured leads of color (James Earl Jones voiced Darth Vader through the entire original trilogy, and Billy Dee Williams's Lando Calrissian joined the series with the second installment, The Empire Strikes Back), it should be noted that this isn't the first time that the more closed-minded Star Wars fans have been vocal about increased representation of minorities in the franchise; author Chuck Wendig responded to some homophobic fans upset at his inclusion of an openly gay Imperial officer in the novelStar Wars: Aftermath by imploring them to "stop being the Empire." (Wendig has also responded to the current situation.)

    On social media, other Star Wars fans have responded in defense of the new movie:

    What if all the storm troopers were blacks? Would that really be a anti-white message?
    I mean the death star was kind of a corporate slaveship planet, we always assumed it was manned by underpaid, indentured subcontractors and not "inhabitants" like other planets. I kind of see the DeathStar like Qatar, a place where slavery is sanctioned and accepted by the outside world. Would advance civilizations in space need homogeneity not diversity? That's why Lando and Han Solo were the outsiders they were not conformist.

    Shoehorning blacks into traditionally white or non-ethnic movies and tv shows just to be PC is fucken bullshit and ruins them. White people never complain about all the shit on BET that are black and all the shit unwatchable black sitcoms on TBS...

    I don't know about anti-white but the main actor sure seems lame. He always has that dumb look on his face with his lower jaw sticking out and giant nostrils flaring... the hell?

    The lead in a Star Wars movie can't be black. I have no problem enjoying a movie with a black lead but Star Wars is completely different. This is blantant propaganda after JJ Abrams claimed that the Emmy's were "too white" and wanted more diversity. I fully support this boycott. There has been a trend to erase traditionally white characters and I have had enough. All of the movies where they replaced the white actors have bombed also. I hope this is no different.

    People of color should just try to start their own shit rather than wanting to be apart of the white people's creations.

    I saw a list of actors on the IMDb and it looked like there are a lot of black storm troopers . You you might be right . Maybe they will add the third lead in the second movie like they did with lando and make him a white dude . To be honest I did notice that a black dude and a broad were the leads but it won't stop me from watching . In a world where we are told we have to call Bruce Jenner , her you have to expect this kind of thing from Hollywood liberals . I don't see them adding Asians in the mix and there are more of them than anyone . So it's all horse shit .
