Actually Spike slavery was a topic in spaghetti westerns, including the original 1966 Django.

I’m starting to wonder if Quentin actually pays Spike to whine for him. It’s good publicity, since at this point most of the world knows Spike as that annoying guy at Nicks games, I’m betting plenty of people will go to the movie just because he doesn’t like it.

'Django Unchained' Review: Tarantino's Story is Wickedly Fantastic



Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained is a complete masterpiece. The actors, screenplay, cinematography and direction are near perfection. Is the film violent? Yes. Is it controversial? Yes. Is it one of the year's best? Yes.

Django is two hours and 35 minutes long and every minute is necessary in this unbelievable story in which Tarantino pays homage to spaghetti westerns and the 1966 film titled Django, starring Franco Nero, who makes a cameo in this film.

[....]

Underneath the violence, bloodshed and racial slurs, Django is ultimately about a love story and what one man will do in order to be reunited with his wife. That’s what makes Tarantino’s film so enjoyable and real. What Django does in order to see Brunhilde again is unbelievable and astonishing. Although you may not think it from the trailers, Django Unchained is really one of the most romantic films of the year. Call me crazy AFTER you watch the film.

There will be some who think Django Unchained goes too far with its message, but that is the brilliance of Tarantino’s “no shame” screenplay. If you are willing to accept the film’s “over-the-top” demeanor, you’ll find that Django Unchained is one of the best movies of the past decade.
