People treat Kylo's character like he will be a revenge fantasy to all those that feel hatred towards entitled white privileged straight cis men, they call him a MRA and a school shooter, I don't think that's the point of his character. Giving him redemption isn't "giving all white men a pass", I really don't think that's his character. People are making so many assumptions about his backstory I'm afraid people won't change their initial first impressions after TLJ about him.
Yes, this is a great point. I think that too many people take an inherently negative and pessimistic outlook on Kylo’s character. Instead of seeing someone who’s broken and lost but can still be brought back and do good again, they see an evil monster who needs to be put down. The former perspective is founded on hope and optimism, the latter on hopelessness and pessimism - and Star Wars is about treasuring hope and finding solutions, not giving up and accepting things as they are. It’s the whole idea that revenge and retribution are to be prioritised over healing and reconciliation, which is something that I fundamentally disagree with, especially in a Star Wars context.
