Star Wars: Eine alternative Interpretation
Aus "Chasing Amy", 1997:
"For years, in this industry, whenever an African American character, hero or villain was introduced, usually by white artists, they got slapped with racist names that singled them out as negroes.
Now, my book, "White Hatin' Coon", don't have none o' that bullshit. The hero's name is Malikwa, and he's an descendant from the black tribe that established the first society on the planet, while you European motherfuckers were still hidin' in caves n' shit all terrified of the sun.
He's a strong role model that a young black reader can look up to. 'Cause I'm here to tell you: the chickens is comin' home to roost y'all. The black man is no longer gonna play the minstrel in the medium of comics and scifi-fantasy. We keepin' it real, an' we gon' get respect by any means necessary."
"Ah, come on, that's a bunch of horseshit. Lando Calrissian was a black guy, you know... he got to fly the Millenium Falcon, what's the matter with you?"
"Who said that?"
"I did. Lando Calrissian is a positive rolemodel in the realm of science-fiction fantasy."
"Fuck Lando Calrissian, Uncle Tom nigga... Always some white boy gotta involve the 'holy trilogy'.
Bust this: Those movies are about how the white man keeps the brother man down, even in a galaxy far, far away.
Check this shit: You got cracker farm boy Luke Skywalker, a Nazi poster boy, blonde hair, blue eyes, and then,
you got Darth Vader, the blackest brother in the galaxy, Nubian god."
"What's a Nubian?"
"Shut the fuck up. Now, Vader, he's a spiritual brother, you know, down with the force n' all that good shit. N' this cracker, Skywalker, gets his hands on a lightsaber, and the boy decides he's
gonna run the fuckin' universe, gets a whole Klan of whites together - and they gon' bust up Vader's hood, the Death Star, now what the fuck d'you call that?"
"Intergalactic civil war?"
"Gentrification! They gon' drive out the black element to make the galaxy quote, unquote save for white folks. And Jedis is the most insulting installment, because Vader's beautiful black visage is
sellin' when he blows off his mask to reveal a feeble, crusty old white man. They tryin' to tell us that deep inside we all wants to be white!"
"Well, isn't that true?"
"Black Rage! I'll kill all o' y'all white folks I lay my muthafuckin' eyes on!
'What's a Nubian?' Bitch, you almost made me laugh."
"Man, what about you, you didn't tell me you're gonna scream 'Black Rage'. I nearly pissed myself."
