The thing is, white males are not any particular majority on the planet so why do they deserve to be front, centre and focus of all media? To assert they have some special place in media is backwards to your point... because historically it was white male's who had wealth and they only created a media culture which highlighted their own views because of that wealth and power.... it would be more balanced and fair to either 1. demonstrate equal numbers of variants in existence, or 2. demonstrate actual majorities as majorities and minorities as minorities... the later would see white males relegated to even fewer roles then currently. Unless the argument is for a early 20th century status quo... which might be romantic for those holding it but is unrealistic in the real world IMO.

IMO this movie is just a progressive interpretation of the existing franchise.... its much ado about nothing to read more into it. I'm not sure why racism still exists in society, it seems to be some inability to distinguish guilt from individuals and groups - and I'd say represents some accumulation of real or imagined abuse by individuals who happen to fit into a group. That or just run of the mill attention seeking victim mentality.

Anyway, it's an obvious derail of the thread, and given the apparent interest in the topic I'll look at splitting the topic.

Because *WE BUILT THIS CIVILIZATION* and deserve to have a safe space for our own kind, not hijacked by people hostile to us.

funny....i'm pretty sure the white man STOLE most of america from the native americans...and forced the non white immigrants to build and maintain it....

and the only hostility i've encountered has always been from white people bearing swastikas and white hoods....

I'm pretty sure this thread should be titled "Privileged White Dude With Overblown Sense Of Entitlement Can't Handle The Concept Of A Film Franchise That Gives Aliens And Droids As Much Screen-Time As Humans Having Real Diversity".

Heaven forbid if they made a side movie telling the story of Yoda, the idea of Hollywood casting someone completely devoid of Aryan features to play the lead role of a two-foot tall, wrinkled green Muppet could very well cause your world to implode.

Racism. Sexism. Anti-Jewish-ism? Don't remember the word for that but I do know this isn't the place.
