    That’s the 1984 thing of history. And a communist thing to airbrush people out of history .

    He's still there, just smaller... and they made the space battle scene much bigger. There is actually a bunch of changes to that poster. Most movies have multiple different posters highlighting different parts of the movie for a variety of reasons.

    We know what the real reason is. He is seen as a trouble maker because of the protest he led over here.

    There is a significant amount of prejudice in China against "Africans" who are mostly in Guangzhou. Not sure I've ever seen any outside of Guangzhou unless they flew to China with me.

    No, the poster change I was told is new.But I did not confirm it myself. I’m jumping the gun lately I guess. A lot of rumor mills working hard with the NYPD big purge rumor today. Spend my time on that one-lol

    You can't get here from there!
    The fact that this change was made five years ago just means Chinese racism is nothing new.
