Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett has fiery opinions on just about everything, even that galaxy far, far away. “I’m a Star Wars guy. It’s so funny: This is a make-believe world, but people are upset about the fact that [actor John Boyega, who plays a stormtrooper in the new movie] is black, Bennett says. “People are racist, and they don’t even know why they’re racist; they’re racist in a fake world!” In celebration of this week’s long-awaited premiere of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Bennett, dressed as a jedi, shares some more words of wisdom and strength that would make Yoda proud.
