The Daily Show calls out the insanity– Star Wars racism

I am reassured– the Daily Show still knows how to call them–

Man, I want to be a ‘fantasy culture correspondent’. I’m going to go work on my resume….

Note— I had heard a rumor that the whole #boycottstarwarsvii hashtag business started out as an online joke. If it did, the jokers should have realized that in this day-and-age of Gamergate and Sad Puppies it would take on a life of its own. There are some seriously messed-up people out there….

Another note, to any fans offended by the dumping of the Expanded Universe– please deal with it. I totally understand why Disney and Abrams decided to start from scratch– the EU would have been a complete straitjacket. Although, full disclosure, I was never a fan of the EU anyway, so you can take my comment with a grain of salt.

I want to judge this effort on its own merits. Waiting for the first reviews….
