I cannot stand crap like this.
I got about a minute into the video and had to turn it off, this outrage over diversity in movies just stinks of racism, not every character can be a
white straight male.
Rose was a failed character, its got sweet F.A to do with her race or the fact she is a woman it was just a character that didn't work, if she was
white, that failure doesn't change. I am pretty sure that for most people a Rose Tico action figure would have been pretty low on the Christmas wish
list not because she's asian but because the character just wasn't that good, Dr Aphra is a new character who is a lesbian asian and she's pretty darn
popular. Its unfortunate really because I think Kelly Marie-Trand done the best she could with what she had and the character of Rose is actually
fleshed out pretty well outside of the movie and she is actually quite an interesting character.
Personally I thought that Benicio del Toro's character has been the worst of the newer movies, he was just awful, again though, that's got nothing to
do with him being from Puerto Rico.
These characters aren't bad because of their gender or race they're bad because they just fail a bit flat, much like how Jar-Jar or Jake Lloyd's
Anakin didn't quite work out or how some felt that C-3PO was annoying in the OT. I honestly struggle to think of any kind of big fantasy franchise
where there aren't a few characters that I just don't like but its got nothing to do with their gender or race. Making it about the race of the actor
is both racist and lazy, there are legitimate reasons to say "Rose Tico is a bad character" without even having to mention the race of the actor.
