Melissa Harris Perry says “Star Wars” is racist?

That’s so stupid it sounds like a joke.

Actually … it WAS a joke, dating all the way back to 1997, in Kevin Smith’s outstanding “Chasing Amy.”  (For those who haven’t seen Smith’s comedy, the black character and the two white characters are all friends, and are in on the staged “shooting” together.  It’s a publicity stunt to sell comic books.)

Hey, if you haven’t seen it, “Chasing Amy” is a fantastic movie.  It’s one of my all-time favorites, and I think it far better captured “Generation X” than “Clerks” (1994) did.
