Melissa Harris-Perry is Offended Yet Again
[dropcap size=big]O[/dropcap]nce you think you’ve finally seen the last thing the far left can be offended by, they prove yet again there is more where that came from. Melissa Harris-Perry of MSNBC made headlines recently when she said that out of all things, Star Wars is offensive. How is something that is beloved by hundreds of millions of people racist? Harris-Perry says it’s because Darth Vader is a black guy. Here is the video:
If you love Star Wars, you’ll know this reason alone does not make it racist. If you’re unsure if to what Melissa Harris-Perry said has any merit, here are five reasons it does not.
5.) Many Star Wars Heroes are People of Color
Before you say, “So Star Wars has a few minorities who are heroes? That doesn’t mean they can’t be racist!” realize that the Jedi Order, the Rebel Alliance, and the Galactic Republic were all composed of various cultures, creeds, races, and, yes, species. Lando Calrissian, Mace Windu, Bail Organa, and many more heroes in Star Wars prove that the writers included all kinds of people to help the forces of good. In fact, the entirety of the Clone Army was comprised entirely of Māoris, or indigenous Polynesians. If George Lucas the writers of Star Wars were such white supremacists, why would they have comprised the force that fought alongside the Jedi Knights to maintain order of ethnic minorities?
