The Empire Has Always Been At War With Eastasia

Good news everyone! It's now legal to say that John Boyega's character in Disney Star Wars was a waste of space.

I wonder what's changed? 

Oh yeah: this

Stunning and brave, you guys! 

Needless to say, some of us pointed his character was worthless *at the time* - and do you know what we got called?

Free clue: it wasn't 'insightful movie critics'.

Lest we forget, Johnny Boy was happy to prop up the phony baloney 'black stormtrooper' nontroversy (it was really phony). He knew exactly why he was hired and he was happy to cash the cheques.

But that was then and this is now.

It takes a lot to make the Demon Mouse look like the good guys, but I think he's managed it! It's right there in his comments about writing black characters.


What does that even mean? Was Lando Calrissian a black character? How about Mace Windu? Or were they actually just good characters? Not letting this loser hijack these movies with his racial obsessions may have been the only smart thing Disney actually did.

Just like the old American line about the guy who was born on third base but claims he hit a triple, this guy was given a multi-million dollar participation trophy but now we're all supposed to pretend he was cruelly robed of his shot at an Oscar.

Resentful ingratitude is such an endearing characteristic. It never fails to win me over.
