Star Wars Fans Accused of Hating Mace Windu and Finn

Every so often, someone kicks the hornet’s nest just to see what happens; that’s what I assume this is, at least. Today, a content creator called Okiro posted about racist sci-fi fans on X in response to another post about asking what fictional character “that it’s hate is forced.” Oiko posted four pictures about black characters “who get relentlessly hated on,” and two of them are a bit surprising:

I don’t know who the top left and bottom right characters are, but the others are, of course, Finn from the Star Wars sequels and Mace Windu from the Star Wars prequels (and some cartoons I’ve mostly never seen), played by John Boyega and Samuel L. Jackson, respectively. The thing is, neither of these characters has gotten a lot of hate. The criticisms were more about their underutilization in the movies, with Finn being sold in the trailers as a potential Jedi and ending up being constantly mocked and subjected to undermining pratfalls before (I gather, as I’ve never seen The Rise of Skywalker) simply shouting “Rey!” over and over. I’d have liked for them to make more of his role as a former Stormtrooper; they never capitalized on that like they could have. And Mace Windu mostly sat around the Jedi Council saying ponderous things until finally getting to cut loose in a pair of scenes in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, and while it was cool seeing him decapitate Jango Fett and almost kill pre-Emperor Palpatine, I think most people expected a lot more from a Jedi played by the great Samuel L. Jackson.

But the characters themselves were not targeted, and certainly not over their race. I was in high school when The Phantom Menace came out; everyone was psyched to see Samuel L. Jackson in a Star Wars movie. And correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t The Force Awakens the biggest domestic box office performer of all time? Finn was featured pretty heavily in the trailers, as was Rey, and it didn’t put anyone off of seeing it. I don’t know; maybe the racists all decided it was Opposite Day or something. If no one had a problem going in, their problem going out was not the characters’ races or sexes, which they already knew when they bought their tickets.

This post is getting a lot of attention on X, with “Star Wars” and “Mace Windu” trending because of it. Here are some posts from some names you may recognize commenting on the topic:

Anywho, once again, Star Wars fans have got to do better, Senator.

It’s the other way around. Affirmative action, ESG, CRT, DEI and other things are used because the powers that be hate the American citizen population. Samuel L. Jackson has called whites racist in the past and it’s clear he does not like the public.
Furthermore, one could argue that the constant replacement and race-swapping of characters is done for trolling purposes. Perhaps it is a psyop technique created by Frankfurt School or Tavistock Insitute or CIA, for the purposes of social turbulence or confusion. Marxists have always said their goal is to make people uncomfortable, so no reason to think that Boyega and Jackson are not in on it and out to do that.
These rich elitist snobs will continue to poke fans with sticks and call them racist until they finally man up, but I don’t know if, psychologically, that is proven to ever happen.
So, I’m not sure if I hate Windu and Finn, but I do know that they hate me. Their controllers hate us even more. Their puppeteers are looting us in wars right now.

Okiro deleted the post, but of course. My reply to him was “Their skin color was irrelevant to why they were disliked, but people like you obsess over skin color and make everything about it. They were poorly written characters, that is why people didn’t like them. And, most people love Mace Windu, you’re lying.”

    Of course he had to delete it. I’ll see if I can find a screenshot somewhere.
