I get really tired of “racist” accusations against George Lucas based on the portrayal of some of the CGI characters in Star Wars Episodes I – III. I’m particularly incensed by the charge that Jar-Jar Binks is an African-American stereotype. Nothing could be further from the truth. Jar-Jar is actually a Texan stereotype, as the following composite photograph clearly proves:

Jar-Jar Binks and Nolan Ryan - twins separated at birth?

Have fun! — Steve
