In some of the video games, the different between Jedi and Sith is literally that arbitrary.
heck, some of the MOVIES feel that way.
Isn't there a magic hat involved at some point?
That was basically the plot of an episode of Venture Bros.
That's "Sith! I am a bad guy!"
The nerd in me has to point out that Jedi are not given their lightsabers. They build their own custom sabers as a rite of passage and the color of the beam is entirely up to their own preference of kyber crystal.That said, if they find themselves preferring red, that may raise a few flags.
This is my new canon.
The only thing worse is to be a character written in to be a member of a mysterious and enigmatic alien race.. only to find out that you are Jar Jar Binks.
