MSNBC (CBC South) host claims Darth Vader is racist because he's a black father who didn't “claim his son”

StaffRebel Columnist

Melissa Harris Perry has frequently said very stupid things on air.

From wearing tampon earrings to comparing unborn babies to cancer, she's on another level when it comes to being an attention-seeker.

And now she's claiming Star Wars is racist.

With The Force Awakens coming soon, her panel decided to have a conversation about Star Wars.

“I know why I have feelings -- good, bad, and otherwise -- about Star Wars. And I have a lot. I could spend the whole day talking about the whole Darth Vader situation,” she said.

“Yeah, like, the part where he was totally a black guy whose name basically was James Earl Jones, who, and we were all, but while he was black, he was terrible and bad and awful and used to cut off white men's hands, and didn't, you know, actually claim his son,” she added.

Um, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia are white. By her logic all stormtroopers are white because they wear white. James Earl Jones did voice the character of Darth Vader, but David Prowse was inside the costume.

Vader had no idea his son/daughter was even still alive. In Revenge of the Sith we learn The Emperor told him that in a fit of rage he killed his pregnant wife.

In the original trilogy, Darth Vader only cut off one man's hand – his own son's.

“But as soon as he claims his son and goes over to the good, he takes off his mask and he is white. Yes, I have many, many feelings about that, but I will try to put them over here,” she concluded.

Leave it to an MSNBC host to turn a touching father-son Star Wars moment into a race-baiting fiasco.

She's just insane.

I read somewhere that if you left the corn braids in too long or got them too tight , it cuts off the blood circulation to the brain resulting in a state of total stupidity. Having seen it first hand on the clip above I see that its true.

Why does Melissa Harris-Perry exist?

Why wasn’t MSNBC lunatic, Melissa Harris-Perry concerned about Lando Calrissian’s character, a black character, who gambled away his only asset, his pimped-out ride, the Millennium Falcon, in a card game against Han Solo and then somehow dubiously became the Administrator of Cloud City, then he double-crossed his friends and handed them over to Darth Vader, then he changed his mind after feeling guilty, and then encouraged Cloud City residents to leave when he turned tail and ran from Imperial forces? At least he led the fighter attack against the Death Star, but sheesh! ;)

Has that typical MSNBC idiot, Melissa Harris-Perry, ever seen any Star Wars movies in their entirety?

Darth Vader was a Caucasian character originally played by Britain’s strongest man (a Caucasian), David Prowse (who also acted in Stanley Kubrick’s ‘A Clockwork Orange’) and Darth’s voice was of course supplied by renowned African-American actor James Earl Jones (What man wouldn’t want James’ voice, honestly, I ask you?). Then Darth Vader was played rather badly by another Caucasian actor (a Vancouver-born Canadian), Hayden Christensen in two of those terrible Star Wars prequels (shudder).

In any case, Melissa Harris-Perry’s obsession with race makes her racist by definition. Lunatics like her should be barred from commenting on news networks or acting as “journalists” in news media.

I used to think the onion was better, but now I just use the rebel for all of my funny/satire news stories, thanks guys!

Actually I think she got her interpretation wrong. All through the trilogy we are aware that Darth Vader is hunting Luke Skywalker and when he finds him he answers the age old question of “whose your daddy” by openly admitting “Luke I’m your father ..those late child support payments were too astronomical and I have turned them into an evil empire to share with by my side”. Or something like that.

Isn’t this idiotic rant stolen from Chasing Amy?

James Earl Jones is a very popular actor and much to do with his role as the ‘Vader’. A role, I might add, he cherished greatly. So this punk wants to redefine Mr. Jones’ feelings? Hope he gives as good as it gets. She deserves it.

I thought that close to 70% of Black kids had no Daddy that ever stuck around to raise them.

She is using drugs!

WOW!!! Just “Wow.” I’m surpised that she didn’t bring up the scene from “Revenge of the Sith,” where Anakin, just after he becomes Darth Vader, gets into a lightsaber duel with Mace Windu, a black man, and cuts off his hand. Maybe she couldn’t be bothered to watch all of the movies.

What a moron.this idiocy is nothing compared to her abortion ramblings.Too bad her mother didn’t feel that way.Is it too late to abort her? I really don’t think SHE is a person.typical leftist pro baby murderer b.s.

At best Lucas was advancing New Age concepts but most likely was just influenced by them and decided to make an enjoyable space opera. I find the whole dark and light sides of the force rather idiotic but since it is a movie, not real life, I just ignore them, the same way I ignore the “free love” cheesiness in original James Bond movies.

Ever since the days of Mozart villains have always been baritones……what gives with that? How come sopranos and castrati get all of the good arias? A bunch of CISgendered stereotyping…

Guy Fraser, I’m guessing that’s not the case since he recently came back as the voice for Darth Vader in an episode for the new animated series. I wonder if this crazy lady is going to attack him for it.
commented 2015-12-14 15:25:48 -0500
What about when Vader had his own daughter tortured? He almost killed both of his kids in A New Hope. I guess according to this wackjob, Lucas was implying only black fathers are capable of filicide, but that murderous urge subsided when it was revealed in Return of the Jedi that Vader is white. As for her question about why people like Star Wars so much, a better question would be why are idiots like her even allowed on TV? Stupid has become too entertaining.

Funny how she completely ignored actual black characters in the movies… Jedi Master Mace Windu, and in this new movie, a Force sensitive (I’m guessing later in the movie ex) stormtrooper, Finn.

Question : When are non blacks going to get their own no-blacks TV channels?
Answer : We don’t care because we are not the racists!
commented 2015-12-14 14:53:51 -0500
Yup, what do you expect from a retched liberal?
Ask James Earl Jones if he regrets taking the gig of the Voice of Darth Vader … because it is a racist role?

Bill Elder – I concur!

Yes, yes yes, and daytime is “racist” because it allows no black – do we really care what these neurotics are croaking over, they’ve already jumped the shark and their pathological race baiting has discredited them with anyone with an IQ greater than a fence post.

WTF- Why do socialists always look into things that have no meaning but yet turn a blind eye to the real problems in this world, it just amazes me.

Where do they dig these nuts up from? I can’t believe the level of insanity she possesses.

What really amazes me is that some people actually care what these celebrity airheads think. But then, of course, we did elect an airhead to lead our country, so……..
