    Ever notice that no one serves driods. And they all say "Hey! We don't serve their kind here!" Does this remind anyone of the "no Blacks" or "Whites Only" signs taht they posted in resturaunts in America when racial segrigation was happening in the 1950's and such? And if not, why don't they serve driods?

    There are SO many different ways you could have worded this topic and it would have been infinitely better.

    "Why are droids not treated the same as sentient/living beings in the SW universe?"

    Because they are made of metal. Do you say goodbye to your toaster when you leave for work/school in the morning? ;)

    I've actually heard a greater comparison between the Gungans and African Americans before the Civil Rights Movement, with the whole Meesa phrase supposedly being analogous to Master. I personally don't see it. The Gungan dialect = baby talk, not jive. Word.
