Northern Exposure actress Janine Turner asserted to Fox Business News on Monday that Darth Vader’s costume was black because Star Wars movies were based on the Bible.
Over the weekend, MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry had suggested that there was a racial component to Darth Vader’s character because he was dressed in black and voiced by a black man. But after the character turned away from the Dark Side, Darth Vader was revealed to be a white man.
Turner responded to Harris Perry on Monday by warning that “political correctness is going to be responsible for killing more Americans.” “Regarding Darth Vader, please!” she exclaimed. “The Bible talks darkness and light. This is about evil and good. Darkness and light.”
“This doesn’t have anything to do with anything else, this goes back to biblical times,” she continued. “It’s been discussed in the Bible, Jesus talks about it. It’s about darkness and light, evil and good.”
