Now we don't know that for sure! Its a long time between AOTC and ANH and since the clone's template died on Genosis, its possible they had recruits and conscripts. How can you explain the Imperial Navy Troopers who are obviously not clones? IMO its a bigger assumption that all Stormies are clones than too conclude that the Empire is discriminatory. i would agree with you but i have the epII dvd and i have heard with my own ears during the commentary GL saying that the stormtroopers are clones of jango. hence the scene where jango hits his head while going up the ramp into slave one. it was meant as a nod to the scene in epIV when the stormie hits his head on the door. stormtroopers have the jango clumsy gene. that is the gospel according to GL not me. as to the navy troops that are not clones, well they are just that, not clones. that's why they don't wear helmets with masks. but the stormtroopers most definatly are. back to the main topic though. just so you know i do not discount the theory that the empire is discriminatory. notice in my last post i said "do i think that one can think the empire is racist based on things seen in the movies? sure why not." i see the evidense and admitted i can see that point of view. i just personally require more proof. like i said i'm more of the school of thought that believes that palpatine is just a power monger. he is out for no one but himself. even his officers are just pawns. he allows vader to kill them at will. even vader says that palpatine is "not as forgiving as i am." to me that's not someone who is out to promote the well being of his species over any other. he is just out for himself. all others, humans and aliens alike, are just pieces on his galactic chess board. now if you want to talk about real discrimination in the SW universe, talk about poor droids. now those poor guys really can't get a break.
