Salvador Larocca is my least favorite right now. I am reading all of the SW books except Darth Vader because of him. Lazy smoke, no sense of movement and weight, can't draw architecture in perspective, his stormtrooper helmets are LOL jokes, and his tie fighters look wobbly and broken.
My last name is Thacker. My friends in college started calling me Mon Thackma (referencing Mon Mothma) since I was such an unashamed Star Wars nerd. I've been using it as my gamertag/username/etc for more than a decade. I didn't come up with it. It was given to me.
Well no one is going to argue against that, but put yourself in this scenario...
You are at a dinner table with 9 other hungry people. Everyone else served a delicious plate of food. You are served nothing.
You speak up and say "Hey, I'm hungry."
Everyone turns to you and says, "We are ALL hungry!" and continue to eat.
How would that make you feel?
I dislike this example. Using it is like trying to paint a picture that most white people either don't value Black lives, or are simply indifferent. This is untrue.
I think my example is exactly true, for myself included, as a white guy who cares but does nothing tangible to help. I go about my business of work, family and friends.Facebook posts, watercooler talk, prayers and bumper stickers don't amount to much. Again, I care, but am ashamed to admit, I do nothing to help. Do you?
I can't agree with your analogy because you make it seem like the oppressive institution is only one that is saying "Everybody Matters". It's not. It a generic response from your average american (of many backgrounds) who lacks empathy. You analogy doesn't work on many levels, in my opinion.
@monthackma: I had gathered sources for the information that I had posted for this forum. You are just mad that I pointed your beloved series is a cheap copy from somebody's work. It is not my fault Georgie has ripoff from other series.
@monthackma: The ironic thing is that the entire Star Wars had no original idea. It is all stolen, and copied from successful franchises that had passion and soul put into them. George simply had no talent. Just wanted sell his merchandise. Well...their is one original idea George came up with that is Jar Jar Binks.
No. It's not ironic that (in your opinion) SW has no original ideas. I'd like to see you explain how it is, actually, because I'm pretty sure you don't know what it means. Your post is ironic, like I said, because none of the ideas you are trying to convey are even yours. It's just links to stuff other people think. Copied. Just as you claim Lucas did with the entire SW franchise. Get it?
And if you think Jar Jar is original, then why not Greedo, Zam Wesell, or any other character from the SW universe? All copied? Except Jar Jar? Dude just stop lol.
