Procura-se Amy. A cena do “o que é um núbio?” e a teoria sobre o Darth Vader

Como não achei com legenda, segue o script desta parte:

HOOPER: For years in this industry whenever an  African-American character – hero or  villain – was introduced usually by white artists and writers – they got slapped with racist names that singled them out as negroes: Black Panther, Black Lightning, Black Goliath, Black Mantra, Black Talon, Black Spider, Black Hand, Black Falcon, Black Cat..

HOOPER: Now my book, .White-Hating Coon’, doesn’t have any of that bullshit. The hero’s name is Maleekwa, and he’s a descendant of the black tribe that established the first society on the planet, while all you European mother fuckers were still hiding in caves and shit, all terrified of the sun. He’s a strong role model that a young black reader can look up to, .Cause I’m here to tell you – the chickens are comin’ home to roost, ya’ll: the black man’s no longer gonna play the minstrel in the medium of comics and Sci-Fi/Fantasy! We’re keeping it real, and we’re gonna get respect – by any means necessary!

During the speech, Holden and Banky enter and sit up front.

HOLDEN (calling out) Bullshit! Lando Calrissian was a
black man, and he got to fly the Millennium Falcon!

HOOPER Who said that?!?

HOLDEN I did! Lando Calrissian is a positive
black role model in the realm of Science Fiction/Fantasy.

HOOPER Fuck Lando Calrissian! Uncle Tom nigger! Always some white boy gotta invoke .the holy trilogy’! Bust this – those movies are about how the white man keeps the brother man down – even in a galaxy far, far away. Check this shit. You got cracker farm-boy Luke Skywalker, Nazi poster boy – blond hair, blue eyes. And then you’ve got Darth
Vader: the blackest brother in the galaxy. Nubian God.

BANKY What’s a Nubian?

HOOPER Shut the fuck up! Now Vader, he’s a spiritual brother, with the force and all that shit. Then this cracker Skywalker gets his hands on a light-saber, and the boy decides he’s gonna run the fucking universe – gets a whole Klan of whites together, and they’re gonna bust up Vader’s hood the Death Star. Now what the fuck do you call that!

BANKY Intergalactic Civil War!
HOOPER Gentrification. They’re gonna drive our the black element, to make the galaxy quote, unquote .safe’ for white folks.

HOLDEN But Vader turns, out to be Luke’s  father. And in Jedi, they become friends.

HOOPER Don’t make me bust a cap in your ass, yo! Jedi’s the most insulting installment, because Vader’s beautiful, black visage is
sullied when he pulls off his mask to reveal a feeble, crusty white man!
They’re trying to tell us that deep inside, we all want to be white!

BANKY Well isn’t that true!


HOOPER (breaking character) .What’s a Nubian!’ Bitch, you almost
made me laugh!

Hooper sounds different Actually, he sounds gay.
Actually – he is. Banky smiles.

BANKY Well what about you! You didn’t tell  me you were going to scream .Black Rage’. I nearly pissed myself.
