Why is Disney pushing Cypriot culture on black(s)?

I hope this sounds better using my accent, but to be honest I don't generally use brackets anyway, and besides my beef isn't with you it's with Disney.

The modern day Stormtroopers are what we used to call Janissaries, the soldier slaves of the Ottomans.

Africans were chattel slaves, so why is Disney pushing our culture on to them?

I understand that U.S. soldiers are slaves...

I didn't know what a Cypriot was until you mentioned it. What does Disney have to do with Cypriot culture? What do stormtroopers have to do with blacks? How are they linked to janissaries? Whatever you're seeing flew way over my head, so it just sounds weird.

Yeah... no. And you can count on me for accurate information relating to Star Wars.

Storm Troopers were adapted from WWI and Nazi Germany.

"While most well-known “storm troops” were the Nazi Sturmabteilung, the formation of “storm troop” units predates the National Socialists or World War II. In Germany, the SA (Sturmabteilung) took its name from the small units of storm troops used in German offensives of World War I."

"After the Great War ended in 1918, the burgeoning National Socialists established their own storm troops in the 1920s to protect Nazi party meetings. Like so many of the most iconic elements of Hitler’s Nazi party, the name storm trooper was simply repurposed from earlier times. Over time, the SA grew into the paramilitary wing of the Nazi party. Used to maintain order, they were widely identified by their brown shirts and black jackboots."

So not to say Cypriot culture isn't important, but Star Wars deals with more globalized conflicts.
