What this dip shite fails to realize is we don't have a problem with diversity. We have a problem with it being forced into plot points that make no sense just because you want to make a political statement.


+1. No one threw a fit about Lando being black when Empire came out. His skin color was irrelevant. No one gave a swinging frick when Leia took charge during a given scene, it was part of her personality and the writing proved that.

However, when you make a movie where pretty much every male lead makes bad decisions and all the female leads are constantly having to save them from those bad decisions, that's not "diversity", that's trying to beat your audience over the head with your SJW'ism.

Apparently he's a bit too delicate for criticism, otherwise he would look at it far more objectively than insinuate through his pissings and moanings that it's unfair.

He's not technically wrong. If Diversity is the only reason you disliked it, sure kinda odd. If you didn't like it because the whole host of other issues (including FORCED Diversity) then yes, that's acceptable.

Nobody cared that Lando was black, Luke smooched his sister, and Jabba wasn't paying his fair share, they cared that you forced a damn solution on an issue that didn't freaking exist.

re: Rian Johnson takes a shot at the M/TV board
Man this dude will never get it.

JJ spent all of FA telling us Rey was somebody, most likely somebody connected to Luke Skywalker, and that skywalker was important. Then TLJ came along and Rian had luke sucking on space cow juice and being pretty meh to the story.

Oh, and turns out everything set up in FA was bull and completely unnecessary.

But if you didn't like it it's because you don't like diversity.

Oh and Leia showed very little force powers, but suddenly can fly through space.

Also, where was JJ taking Finn being injured and in a coma? Because that go thrown completely out the window at about the 10 minute mark of TLJ. The whole movie is a joke.

I mean, obviously.

People weren't mad that Rose was asian. They were mad that her character and dialogue were stupid and nauseating.

People weren't mad that Fin was black. They were mad that a burgeoning, promising character was ruined as the punching bag for a "sit back boys, because girl" theme they wanted to pound into the ground.

Most people would have been fine with the female Rey, but for the whole zero struggle, zero obstacles, zero depth Mary Sue bull shite. You can't sympathize and grow with someone who isn't relateable to anyone. . .and doesn't grow. Rey starts out as more powerful than everyone, then just gets moreso.

Diversity proper wasn't the problem. It was the approach TLK took regarding diversity, that ruined the movie.

Rian Johnson is that guy who is constantly pointing out the one black guy in his entourage, to the point of awkwardness

At this point I wish they had just stopped at the original trilogy.

Everything else except parts of Rogue One has been basically shite.

Didn’t see TLJ, won’t see this either

If you went to a restaurant and it was nothing but black servers, there's a good chance if you're a white male in the south, you're not going to go back.


That's absurd. Quality of food and dining experience is the ultimate factor in the decision. The entire staff of my local Gus's is black...you think I'm not going to get that delicious chicken. Dreamland was started nearly 60 years ago "in the south". It was a black man and his family in a little shack. I'm sure your TGIF closed do to poor service and crappy food...not the color of the wait staff - TGIF, O'Charleys, Ruby Tuesdays, etc are closing all across the country because they are awful business models with terrible food.

What's the agenda? Let's recycle an old shitty story and make a billion dollars?

*sigh* you call the repair shop and ask if they have any gay mechanics that are good with rear ends. Rebuilding a tranny is a different group.

Not sure where anyone got the idea that southern white folks won't eat in a restaurant manned by black people. I'd have to seriously narrow my food and retail choices in Baton Rouge if I avoided places staffed by African Americans.
