I've noticed that the in the newer Star Wars films, the REALLY REALLY stupid, greedy, clumsy, and selfish characters all have some sort of accent that originates elsewhere besides england. The viceroy of the trade federation, a kniving (sp?), selfish, and gutless character has a non-english accent. The cruel and heartless slavedriver Watto also has a non-english accent. The insanely dumb leader of the Gunguns (again with the sp?) has a non-english accent. AND TO TOP IT OFF, the stupidest most annoying prick in the entire star wars genre has an overly done Jamaican accent. George decided to make all the idiots and evil-doers in his movies seem as if to come from other races, and that makes me mad. Because of that, the character known as Jar Jar Binks is very insulting to me.
hahahaha. I don't even need to tell you how stupid that is. Its a movie. Not meant to be racist. duh.

Jar Jar is just annoying, from the way he walks to the way he talks.

stuck in an eternity of sunshine and chocolate.

He just didn't fit right or feel right in the movie. He looked stupid, but even then, he talked stupid. He basically seemed like an annoying Roger Rabbit. He seemed so fake!

George could have replaced him with something so much better...

Here we go with the racist thing again

Don't you think if Jar Jar was a racist stereotype that Ahmed Best would have refused to play him? The same thing was said about Darth Vader, being an evil black guy. But surely James Earl Jones would not have voiced Vader if he thought there were wider racial connotations to the character.

If you see something racist in Star Wars, chances are you're a racist yourself.
