The Empire Were The Good Guys in Star Wars
Yep , you're right , some people compare the 'evil Galactic Empire' to Nazi Germany . .
But isn't it not far fetched to compare ANY supposed authoritarian government to "the Nazis" ?
Even basing it
on it . . ?
I even think people subconsciously compare all 'evil governments' to the "Nazis" . .
No surprise. .
Or maybe it was just 'publicity-seeking' on Lucas' part . .
Anyway, I think a certain 'racism' shines through . .
I'm going to be honest and say that Darth Vader's mask somehow reminds of negroid facial structures. .
For the record , this guy gave him his voice . .
Thulsa-Doom from 'Conan The Barbarian' . .
It would appear James Earl Jones never gets tired of playing 'evil black characters' . .
Maybe cast him for a possible future cinematic biography of 'Martin Luther King' ?
. . perhaps I should say 'Marxist Looter Coon' . .
On a side note , concerning Star Wars , there are numerous allusions to the Sith being based on primitive savages . . .
This is the Sith species
Facial structures reminiscent of Negroes and / or even a similarity to American Indians are hard to ignore . .
This picture speaks for itself . .
I think it could be interpreted that pretty much all the good guys ( if not touched by political correctness ) are pretty much portrayed as 'light beings' while the baddies are portayed as dark savages . .
