Black Star Wars Actor Tweaks Internet Racists

File this among the odder objections to the rapidly approaching Star Wars: The Force Awakens. From CNN:

… a small minority of people have attacked the film’s ethnically diverse casting as “anti-white.”

“#BoycottStarWarsVII because it is anti-white propaganda promoting #whitegenocide,” read a tweet Monday from an account called End Cultural Marxism. The same Twitter user also called J.J. Abrams, the movie’s director, a “Jewish activist” and “an anti-white nut.”

Another Twitter user called for a boycott of the movie “because it’s nothing more than a social justice propaganda piece that alienates it’s (sic) core audience of young white males.”

First of all, where have these representatives of the “core audience” been for the past year and a half? The cast of The Force Awakens was announced in April of last year. If these guys are the “core,” why are they just getting around to noticing John Boyega now?

Secondly, ahem, Lando? I mean, really, need we say more?
