SJWs Predictably Unsatisfied

As predicted, SJWs are using the hiring of Victoria Mahoney as a soapbox to push their moronic politics.  They certainly can’t be happy just celebrating the inclusion of a woman of color.  Because also predictably, there’s plenty of fashionably bigoted remarks against white men which are all the rage among the SJW ignorati these days.

Behind the camera, the writers and directors of all eight Star Wars films have almost exclusively been white men.

Normally, the hiring of a second-unit director — responsible mainly for shots that don’t feature the major characters — wouldn’t be newsworthy. However, Lucasfilm has been on the receiving end of some negative attention for hiring a steady stream of white male writer-directors for its biggest Star Wars projects, including Abrams for The Force Awakens and Episode IX; Gareth Edwards for Rogue One; Ron Howard (replacing previous white dudes Phil Lord and Christopher Miller) for Solo; Rian Johnson for The Last Jedi and an upcoming film trilogy; Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss for another upcoming trilogy, and Jon Favreau for the first live-action Star Warsseries.

George Lucas is out of the scene, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has shepherded in a new crop of directors to steer this mighty ship. So far, the results have been mixed, and much has been made of the internal conflicts and firings. Yet throughout all this, there has been a constant: all of the directors have been white men. Whether they stuck around or not, every name chosen by Kennedy has fit that painfully narrow mold. Mahoney is a refreshing exception, but as a second unit director, she still won’t get to be the brains of the operation.

Putting a black woman in charge of a Star Wars film’s second unit is an incredibly important step in the right direction toward diversifying the latent pool that studios tap into the helm major projects—and making Hollywood a more inclusive space overall. But it’s important to bear in mind that there’s still a lot of work to be done, because one black woman heading up one Star Wars film’s second unit will not solve the industry’s larger issue of excluding people who are not straight white men from positions of power.

While the ever-expanding movie franchise has been taken to task plenty of times for its repeated hiring of exactly one type of filmmaker — white males, including recent turns from Ron Howard and Rian Johnson — “The Force Awakens” director J.J. Abrams is bringing someone brand new into the fold: filmmaker Victoria Mahoney.

J.J. Abrams is walking the walk, not just talking the talk. There’s a lot of discussion in Hollywood right now about inclusion, and opening up positions that are traditionally held by white men to a more diverse range of individuals.

Not to mention the fact that white male directors who make a $5 million Sundance indie are handed the reigns to massive franchises like Star Wars or a Marvel movie straight away.

The news was trumpeted today by filmmaker Ava DuVernay, a friend of the film’s top director, J.J. Abrams, who was clearly thrilled at the thought of a black woman making inroads in a franchise that’s frequently struggled to get people who aren’t white men in leading positions behind the camera.

Following criticism that every Star Wars director has been a white male, Lucasfilm has done a game changer, announcing Victoria Mahoney as the Second Unit Director for Star Wars 9. Mahoney will be the first African American and first female director to work as any kind of director on a Star Wars movie, so this is a historic move for Lucasfilm.

The criticism of Lucasfilm and Star Wars first surfaced earlier this year when Variety reported a statistic that 96% of the writers and directors for Star Wars are white males.

Some people are increasingly critical of the film industry for being composed primarily of white men. Star Wars has dealt with a lot of this rage since all of the franchise’s films have been helmed by white men. However, it appears they are starting to turn that image around to be more diverse both in front of and behind the camera.

Yes, Episode IX is off to a fine start.

  34. This is just disgusting! The bigotry of White Male’s by the proglodyte elite is even more disgusting then the supposed “racists” they scream and cry about.

    And so what if things have been done exclusively by White Male’s? MLK stated that he wnated to be judged by the content of his character and NOT by the color of his skin. It seems like the proglodyte elite aren’t too keen on that man’s great philosphy.
