    You are bringing this up (twice) regardless of current discussion, I don't wish to assume why that is.

    I'm pretty sure Renard put forth a solid argument about the casting that you haven't commented on, so I'm really unsure what you are trying to achieve here.

    This is honestly a bit absurd, you're turning fans nerding over a character storyline into a race issue. At least, that's the impression I am getting here.

    Looks like there's a lot of people that don't know it's a joke, then.

    The discussion is about mostly white Cast in a Star Wars film. You get a black person cast, and a number of people assume that that black person is related to their favorite character. Yet, unless if people had clues otherwise with other cast members who are white people are rarely gonna assume otherwise.

    I'm sorry if it's an uncomfortable little position that makes people rethink how they see things or point things out. But it doesn't mean you have to sit there and get scared over it because you know "hey she's saying people are racists" instead of realizing it's problematic when you do limited number of cast members of diversity.

    Man if only that argument wasn't pure conjecture.

    The only thing you can point out is there are more white actors in Star Wars. Anything past that is speculation.

    It would seem you have a chip on your shoulder. I neither appreciate the assumptions nor the tone in what should be a polite discussion. Frankly, I'm insulted and I will not participate further in this thread.

    You're doing nothing but attempting to re-frame an argument as racism. You're an intellectually dishonest race-baiter, trying desperately to get others to play your game and failing.

    Closing thread. This is quickly devolving into personal attacks.
