Seriously, how is this news to people?


Because the franchise sells Storm trooper dolls and costumes to children
Why would you want your children to dress up like evil space nazis?!?

Why is Disney even selling these white supremacist neo nazi products???



This attempt at brainwashing kids into thinking nazism is cool needs to stop now!

Why can't people just watch a science fiction move and enjoy it? It's Sci-fi not reality.

More anti-White propaganda out of Jewish Hollywood. What a surprise. Why don't they ever make a movie about how Jewish supremacists in Israel occupy and murder Palestinian children.

By your logic you should demonize any franchise that sells merchandise based on its villain characters seeing as you apparently think to do so is to push the morality of said villains onto the children.

There are yahoos within literally every single sufficiently large group anywhere and everywhere.

All one can do is ignore the crazies.

i suggest looking up a star wars character named thrawn despite being a alien he was considered one of the highest ranking and respected members of the imperial military with him being highly favored by sidious for example.

I also recommend doing this as the stories he is featured in are supposedly quite good. However the expanded universe of old has been written off as non-canon now, so it's a moot point.

Multiculturalism is what makes Star Wars great, it shows a colorful universe. I do think that the SJW is strong with new series though, I haven't seen Rogue One yet, but The Force Awakens made Rey a little too special and not in the right ways.

If you remember the original Trilogy, Luke never really had any great solo victories. He was primarily a student with the capabilities of a student the entire way.

Aniken on the other hand was given a lot of power, but his lack of patience and recklessness made him weaker than most experienced Jedi even though he was supposed to be stronger with the force. Dooku and Obi-wan kicked his ass.

When your main character struggles it makes for an interesting story, what The Force Awakens did though, was had Rey thrown into situations that she should be struggling in, but instead she cleared them magically. Hunger Games did the whole female protagonist thing way better.

Wow. What a fucking joke. Not sure whether to laugh or just cringe? When will this anti white bullshit ever end?
Why would a white supremacist group have a leader in a black uniform? AND be voiced by a black man? (lol just to add to the stupidity)

It's kind of weird that the empire would have been a white supremacist group, in light of the recent black stormtrooper. I doubt he was a special exception.

And yes, I know that, strictly speaking, the new trilogy is not the 'Empire'. However, the current regime seems very much to be a successor in spirit, and in truth. They kept the uniforms, they idolize Darth Vader, etc. It seems reasonable to assume they kept a similar ideology, as well.


The Empire wasn't a "White Supremacist Group." The Empire was a "Human Supremacist Group." The Sith had always hated aliens and did all they could to crush, enslave, and otherwise exclude the Alien Species. Humans of all races were top dogs throughout the Sith Empire in the Old Republic Era.

It was the Galactic Republic that was all inclusive towards all Species. The Sith tried to avoid defeat by finally allowing Alien Races to have the same status as Humans. It was really rough going, and it was too late. Eventually the Sith Empire collapsed. The Sith disappeared, and the Galactic Republic ruled the Galaxy.

Until Emperor Palpatine, Darth Sideous, came to rule the Galactic Republic. Renaming it to the Galactic Empire (I think, it was renamed). He used a Human Clone Army, and it was Humans who largely made up the Empire's military leadership. So, in essence, Palpatine, Darth Sideous, returned to the old traditional Sith ways...., which included xenophobic tendencies, not racist tendencies.

EDIT:

If you want to know who was at fault for having solely White military officers in the movies, blame Hollywood. They have always been casting White actors, and rarely had people of other races regularly appear in feature films. The Sith Empire, and later, Darth Sideous' Galactic Empire, was inclusive of all Human races. In fact, Humans didn't segregate according to Race in the Star Wars universe, but they sure did discriminate against Alien Species... Even in the Galactic Republic, Aliens found themselves often getting the short end of the stick, in some situations.


Interesting. But what about Darth Maul, and other alien sith?


Darth Maul came, well before Anakin Skywalker. This was way before Darth Sidious had become the Chancellor of the Galactic Republic. Darth Maul fulfilled the needs of Darth Sidious, but that was way before Anakin Skywalker was discovered by his Jedi master...

...and also way before the clone army. Darth Maul was cut in-two by Anakin's Master, way before (or just very shortly before) Anakin was brought into the Jedi Order.

Also, remember that way back in the Old Republic Era, the Sith Empire tried to save itself by finally including Alien races into, not just the Sith Empire, as equals, but also into the Sith Order. So, Aliens had been allowed into the Sith Order for almost four thousand years before Sidious took on apprentices....
