Star Wars Supports "White Genocide"? WTF?!?
Unless you haven’t been paying attention to Twitter for the past 24 hours (in other words, you have a life!), you probably know that #BoycottStarWarsVII was a thing that existed. Why did it exist? Because angry racist trolls were upset that the upcoming Star Wars movie was allegedly pushing “cultural Marxism” and “white genocide” because—gasp!—the movie had a diverse cast!

There are “fans” out there who can invest themselves in a movie set “long ago in a galaxy far, far away” filled with aliens of all shapes and sizes, but one human black man completely destroys their suspension of disbelief. Black men in space? Inconceivable!
