SJWs: Star Wars is racist against hero Chewbacca

David MenziesMission Specialist

Another “May the Fourth be With You Day” is in the bag. For a long time, Star Wars Day has been set aside by geeks to talk about their fandom. But this is 2019, which means it's time to call Star Wars racist.

Billionaire franchise creator George Lucas has been singled out in an accusation of racism concerning his beloved creation Chewbacca the Wookie.

You see, Chewie (played by the recently deceased 7'3" actor Peter Mayhew) was the victim of discrimination. While his space buddy Han Solo earned a medal for furthering the plot, Chewie did not receive the same honour.

In the real world, we worry about real problems like unemployment and eco-fascists vandalizing oil field equipment.

I remember watching Star Wars in a theatre back in the late 70’s…40 years ago!
Boy, that Dolby System…!
I don’t really care what a bunch of SJW freakazoids think about Chewie or George or anything else…
Here, John Williams in Dolby – or whatever you got:

The moral is ’Never Chewbacca if you are a Wookie.
