When the movie first came out the complaint was that Jar Jar Binks, seemed to resemble hollywoods potrayals of African Americans during their less PC days. Mainly it seemed a throwback to a rather negative era in films.

Lucas probably didn't intend it to come across as such, but it was how it was precieved by some.

Yeah i never understood the hate for Jar Jar or the Ewoks for that matter?
Maybe its because i watched the original trilogy when i was like 5 and loved the little teddy bears (Though now ive grown up and realised it could and should have been wookies im a bit annoyed...)

But Jar Jar i thought was great.
Thats probably just me still in my 8 year old mind lmao.
If we really want to talk about annoying characters. Anakin in the prequels pissed me off (up until the last half hour of III).
Padme needs to be shot. She annoys the hell out of me. Whiney cow.

I think Jar Jar was going to be executed by his own people for being completely lame.

Thoughts?
They couldn't afford enough voiceover actors for his silly way of talking, that's why they didn't let you play as a Gungan!

Actually I typed that in response to a post in this very thread on page 7 at the very top, who said they hate jar jar because of the racial stereotype. Do you read all the posts or just selectively skim a few and comment?
