Even calypso louie must realizes that this is fiction ... just a movie. But then again, he is always looking for a reason for the “great black revolution” that will change America. Fool.

I don't ever want to defend Farrakhan, but he does admit it's a movie and his hope is merely that people come out if it more aware. Also in his defense, the movie has racewar overtones. The poster vaguely reminds me of black power symbolism, the main character asks something like what could be better than getting paid to kill white people, he even kills a white woman, there's a scene where a white peckerwood is fixing to castrate and the camera briefly shows his noticeably large genitalia. Then again, these aren't related to racewar particularly, though with the amount of blood it certainly was warlike. It is full of general racial, regional, and chronological stereotypes, including ones within the slave subculture. Also it's about white on white war, so not really what Farrakhan has in mind. References to 70s pop culture maybe outweigh the various stereotypes, anyway, given it's Tarantino.
