It deserves more prominence, but the OT and prequels got locked in and while I've never seen the casting sheets, I doubt Lucas was all that worried about a specific actor to play certain roles. You sometimes get whomever is available but regardless, yes, people of color have been Jedi and some of the most famous characters of a franchise or generation.
    That's great and all, now let's see it on the big screen done with conviction. Most people i know that watched the Force Awakens movie had the same response of laughter at the bait and switch treatment of Finn. The feeling was that this was typical of Hollywood when writes the narrative of men of color. Mace was more an exception.

    Huh? Personally, I think Finn is on the list of best post-Disney Star Wars characters.

    Hopefully Rian does a better job creating villains.
