I've seen the Star Wars and racism discussion coming up again lately due to the Re Release. And I was wondering what Ahmed Best has said about the issue. While I can see a slight resemblence in the performance of Jar Jar to some of the stereotypes people point to, I have never particularly thought it was racist. Are there any interviews or quotes regarding this from him? Id like to know how much of his performance was directed and what inpirations he brought to the character. Mod Edit: Changed the title.
