Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens looks absolutely stunning and is set to break a ton of box office records worldwide. It seems that every Star Wars fan and thens one is excited to finally see a sequel after all this time, except for one particular group of people. A widespread movement throughout social media that is calling for the boycotting of The Force Awakens began when some fans began to claim that the film was "anti-white" and will spark "white genocide". This beginning when Disney cast John Boyega as one of the main protagonist Finn and some fans were angry at the fact that he is African-American.
This isn't the first time this has happened!
This isn't the first time there has been outcry from a select group go bigots about the casting of a role. When Michael B. Jordan was cast as Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four we saw a similar reaction. Same with Rue from Hunger Games and the Miles Morales Spider-Man. My personal opinion is if the actor or actress can portray the character correctly and out on an outstanding performance, I don't care what you look like. There is one issue glaring issue that is stemming from these racist remarks from fans on Twitter, have you seen George Lucas' wife?
George Lucas is married to an African-American!
The creator of Star Wars, George Lucas is married to an African American woman. His wife, Melody Hobson (Chairman of Dreamworks), and himself have been married since 2013 after a 7 year relationship and I'm sure that he would disagree with all of you so called "fans" attempt at boycotting the film. Those fans who are saying the disgusting things about John Boyega should take a page out of the king of Sci-Fi George Lucas' book. Racism is wrong and has no place in the epic world of Star Wars.
Boycott if you want, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will still BREAK RECORDS!
Even with those fans boycotting the film simply over the fact that it features a prominent black character The Force Awakens will be the biggest box office success in the history if cinematography. Already shattering the IMAX pre-sale record, the film is projected to take over 600 million opening night. That is unheard of for a film. As a fan who has been waiting for this sequel all of my young life and on behalf of the millions of other who have waited since 1983, we will be there midnight on December 18th, with or without you so called 'Fans". The film is going to be epic, and the force of racism will not hinder this film, believe it.
