During the Monday broadcast of his show, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh ridiculed MSNBC’s Meliss Harris-Perry for going a “mini-rant about racism in ‘Star Wars’.”
“Her latest tirade?” prefaced Limbaugh. “He’s all black. The character wears all black — black helmet, black cape, black boots — and it’s a subtle message that black people are evil, mean murdering killers, and she’s dead serious about it, folks.” (VIDEO: Pod Racist!

“Worse than that,” he continued, “she complained about the villain Darth Vader being ‘totally a black guy’ when he was cutting off white men’s hands, who did not claim his son and then became a white man after he claims his son and goes over to the good.”
“This is sick. This is literally, mentally unstable sick. This woman’s a college professor, and she has her own TV show — she’s talking about a freaking cartoon. A movie!”
“This is insanity. This is the kind of thing that ought to get her fired,” Limbaugh finally exclaimed matter-of-factly.
