There are trillions of African-Americans around the galaxy. Bob Fett wouldn't have noticed that it was Lando. - George Lucas

There are TRILLIONS of AFRICAN-AMERICANS in the galaxy... But I thought it took place a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... wacko.gif

I'm sure someone has counted the number of African-Americans in the Star Wars movies. Particularly in 4/5/6 you could probably count them on one hand. We did have a few more in the prequels. I can imagine a little African American kid responding to the role model: "Mommy! When I grow up I want to be a retainer too!"

I liked Billy Dee Williams. He was handsome, suave, sophisticated and charming.

But that's no longer cool. No. If they were to remake Star Wars, we need that to be updated with the Modern Gangsta-rappa Bad Ass. We need them so scowl, sneer, dis the wimpier crew members, say 'MotherF*er' and 'put a cap in your ass, N*'

Ladies and Gentleman: I give you the Lando Calrisian of the new Millennium:

Curtis '50 Cent' 'Get Rich or Die Tryin' Jackson

The white guys need a make over too. I suggest Bandannas, Singlets, Tatoos and Natalie Portman a pierced belly button. Hell! Give them all Brazilians too and stick in a few nude scenes. They can all wear iPods too.

Oh wait! They already did that in 'The Matrix'.

As for Asians in the Star Wars movies, I can only remember one in the entire saga: The guy in ROTJ who says 'There are too many of them'. Over 12 hours of movies and that's it. I can imagine a little Asian kid watching Star Wars. 'Mommy, when I grow up I want to be white too!'

There are things in all of the movies that seem to contradict each other, big deal.

its just this thing i do.
i challenge (well try to challenge) Barend.

now there's a hobby that's heartbreakingly frustrating, i can tell you, and often ends in people blocking their ears and yelling " LAH LAH LAH LAH NAH BLAH LAH LAH!!!"

a thought occurs...

most of bobba fetts scenes in ESB are part of an ongoing argument between fett, vader, and lando.
so bobba fett must have been pretty stoned to not at least have a "hey wait a minute..." moment.
