A Message to the Racist 'Star Wars' Fans Behind #BoycottStarWarsVII

Hey, racist Star Wars fans!

I heard about your boycott of the upcoming Episode VII: The Force Awakens because it *gasp* features people of color and I have a few questions for you.

1. How dare you?

how dare you mindy

2. You're trolling Twitter, right?

3. Oh, you're not? And you think it's a good idea to use the N word in a tweet?

4. Have you looked at a calendar recently? Your white supremacy outrage is 2000 and late (and then some).


 

5. You do realize that people of color were pretty instrumental in the original films, right?

6. Remember this dude who blew up the second Death Star? He's not white!


 

7. Did you not realize that the voice of arguably the most important character in the franchise, Darth Vader, was voiced by an awesome black man?


 

8. Did you forget that white skin isn't really the norm for this series?


 

9. Do you recognize that freaking out about so-called #whitegenocide and calling the movie "anti-white propaganda" will not hurt the franchise in the slightest, but will only make you unemployable, unless you wanna work at the Mos Eisley Cantina?


 

10. Oh, and did you not know that George Lucas, the mastermind behind your beloved series, is actually married to a black woman?


 
Like The Nerds of Color said in their post about this mess, please do boycott this movie. We don't want to hang out with you at the theater.

Stay home and cry me several rivers so I can drink your tears and stay hydrated during this flu season.


 

Oh, and one last thing, log back into Twitter and go to Settings. Then click on Deactive my account. I hear myspace is stuck in the past, just like your world view. You might have better luck over there.

Bye now!
