Northern Exposure actress Janine Turner told Fox Business News on Monday that Darth Vader’s costume was black because Star Wars films were based on the Bible.
Over the weekend, MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry had suggested that there was a racial aspect to Darth Vader’s character because he was voiced by a Black man and was dressed in black. But after the Vader turned away from the Dark Side, he was revealed to be a White man.
Turner replied to Harris Perry by saying, “political correctness is going to be responsible for killing more Americans.”
“Regarding Darth Vader, please!” she said. “The Bible talks darkness and light. This is about evil and good. Darkness and light.”
“This doesn’t have anything to do with anything else, this goes back to biblical times,” she continued. “It’s been discussed in the Bible, Jesus talks about it. It’s about darkness and light, evil and good.”
Turner explained that films have “always” been that way: “Evil people come up on the black horses, the good people come up on the white horses. I mean, you know, this is darkness and evil.”
The actress said that the discussion of racial issues in Star Wars is the kind of rhetoric that is “ruining our country and putting us in this clear and present danger.”
According to Turner, there's a clause in the Constitution (Article I, Section 10, Clause 3) that would allow “the states to take this back into their own hands.”
Because the states were facing “imminent danger” they would unite and form their own union to deal with immigration and other issues, she advised.
“We’re in clear and present danger, we’re beyond imminent,” Turner said. “So the states can legally and constitutionally come together to defend the American people.”
