    Who knows where ITM finds out some this info, but THAT was a really cool article.

    John Wayne’s voice in the original Star Wars? Who knew!

    1. Old Kid

      Definitely racist, just read and watch some of his interviews and quotes.

      Regardless, I love his characters and movies and Star Wars and find it very awesome to know his voice was used for this Star Wars character.

      I can separate the actor and their personal lives. I’m here for entertainment, not moral direction.

      I grew up watching John Wayne movies with my grandfather, who seemed a lot like The Duke’s characters himself.

    *an icon… Not a icon.

      A racist one at that.

        It didn’t take long for the Cancel Culture to show up and start with the name calling.

        Then again, it is Disney.

          Not a surprise that the only soda sold in all disney parks and resorts are Coca Cola products

      2. Be careful. Evidence has shown that people who throw out “racist” can be defined as being “racist” if grilled about their belief system.
        Also, that misused word is used so frequently by people that it has absolutely no meaning at all. It’s like the F-word, overused and merely a sign of one’s lack of a wider vocabulary. Like the overused F-word, calling someone a “racist” is a sign of sloppy, uncritical thinking. The word “racist” now means nothing more than any other bit of profanity hurled at those whom lefties have been directed to hate.

        Most of the time our emotions serve us by bringing meaning to experiences; they help us deal with what is most important in life as well as providing us with many different kinds of enjoyment. Alas, sometimes emotions get us in trouble by leading us to respond in ways that are inappropriate for the circumstances. A too common example today is making everything about race. That’s not good. You can do better, Mark.

        For example, anger would be justified if we believed that our spouse purposefully ignored or disregarded something we said. But, punishing them with the silent treatment in return would be an inappropriate expression of our frustration (Republicans would love it if you Dems would do this). It is appropriate to feel disappointed (sadness) after a coworker (Republican) got a job promotion instead of you (hurt Dem), but it would be be inappropriate to experience rage (anger) over the decision (as per Dr. Ekman) … cancel culture is morally wrong, fool. Do you really believe Sesame Street is racist?!? At the very least, are you proud the US is the least racist country in the world? Still there?

        Silly Pedro Pascal called President Trump a pedophile – have you ever heard of diagnosis by projection?!?

      I grew up loving the Star Wars movies. I have memorabilia from 20 years ago. I know every line by heart. I love this story George Lucas created. I’m literally appalled that John Wayne had anything to do with Star Wars. To make it more disgusting, and I guess it a normality these days as the american people are showing their true colors as half of them are Trump supporters. I’m noticing some ignorant people in the post defending John Wayne as it’s common knowledge that he was blatantly a racist individual. This world will never change with you people in it. Star Wars is a story for the ages, and I cannot believe there’s was any sort of collaboration in this picture regarding the likes of John Wayne. Unbelievable.

        And it’s a sad and terrible world we live in, when we have to breathe the same air as those like Jason. People like him are cruel and ignorant individuals, who don’t know what their talking about. He, in particular, doesn’t have mental problems or trauma, just issues. Issues that he’ll never work out. He’ll sit and drown in his own self pity until he’s dead. So desperate to move, yet he doesn’t want to get up. And even he has the audacity to bring other people down with him. It’s a shame really. A crying shame.

      John Wayne stated in. 1971 interview with Playboy magazine that he believed in white supremacy.

    2. Alex

      You sound ridiculous. Tell me where the ambiguity is in John Wayne having racist views in the following quoted statement straight from John Wayne’s mouth: ” I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility.” So tired of the old “it’s the Democrats, The Left’s fault for everything” argument. Political party has zero to do with the facts and the lack of accountability for an individual’s actions. It’s nothing more than a very sloppy and pisspoor attempt to justify ones argument. You are part of the problem, not the solution.

      1. Mind

        No, no, you are part of the problem, Alex. A self righteous cunt who is stuck their own ways. Never to get out. Just to sit and drown, until the end of the line.

        Open your eyes until it’s too late.

    John Wayne stated in a 1971 interview in Playboy Magazine that he believed in white supremacy. That is a fact not cancel culture. Some people should get a dictionary and look up the words meaning. “Evidence shows” that ignorance can be overcome.

    The good, the bad and the ugly? Good Lord, do some research! Lone Wolf & Cub. Bandwagon Star Wars fan.

    It’s not who shot first. Han blasted Greedo and Greedo never got off a single shot.
