My response to the Drudge headline was that it was a signal that the movie was intended to inflame hatred between the races. We'd see whites use the word repeatedly.

Reviews of the movie include the descriptions

speaking of deserving more the movie will arouse passions and we can expect an explosion of interest in "Knockout Games." Thanks a lot, Tarantino, I hope you get an up close experience or two playing the Knockout Game. (Even better if Foxx did it.)

The movie is more racial NBC-style Zimmerman "journalism": If at first it don't seethe try, try anything to make it seethe.

At least one instance of beating whites as a result of "get whitey" messages in a movie made it to the courts -- 20 years ago

"In . . . Wisconsin v. Mitchell, 508 U.S. 476 (1993), Mitchell and several black youth were outside a movie theater after viewing Mississippi Burning, in which several blacks are beaten. A white youth happened to walk by, and Mitchell yelled, “There goes a white boy; go get him!” Mitchell and the others attacked and beat the boy."
