The Force Awakens…Racism?

October 21, 2015 – The new Star Wars trailer went live during Monday Night Football this week and the one of the things that the The Force Awakens might be awakening is… racism.

The racial light-sabering began after the first trailer was released showing Boyega as a Stormtrooper.

One thought on “The Force Awakens…Racism?

  1. let me go this straight… when we had Samuel L Jackson play Mace Windu did people complain about it no they even defended him when he was killed by palatine and anakin
    So now why are people complaining get that we have John Boyega now as he is mainly like Mace Windu returned
