'I kill white people': Dozens of racial slurs... Quentin Tarantino film criticized as excessive
Daily Mail ^ | Dec. 12, 2012 | Meghan Keneally

Posted on 12/12/2012 7:36:10 PM PST by Bon of Babble

Django Unchained set in pre-Civil War Texas and pits a former slave against his tormentors when he becomes a bounty hunter

Early reviews of the film claim the n-word is used frequently by black and white characters, but the level of violence is even more disturbing

Not the first time that Tarantino has gotten in trouble for use of racial slur In his 1997 film Jackie Brown, the n-word was used 38 times

I won’t see it, just because of Mr. Fox’s reverent worship of Obama.

Charles Manson wanted a race war, you know. They said he was crazy. He's in prison, and he's not coming out.

Today, the political elite and the entertainment elite are pushing hard -- really hard -- for a race war. They're crazy, but they aren't in prison.

I enjoy violence in novels and movies if it is properly used—i.e., in accordance with some moral point.

I don’t think Tarantino ever understood that in his earlier films, where the violence is excessive and pointless, as far as I’m concerned.

This movie sounds even worse, since it tries to excuse the violence and appeal to the Hollywood crowd by making it politically correct.

No, thanks.

Wasn’t planning on seeing it anyway. 99% of today’s movies are slop. If I want to see a good film, I’ll put in a DVD or watch TCM.

An excellent time to stir up old wounds. /s

Should riots ensue, no doubt Obama will have Tarantino arrested and perp-walked on national TV.

Actually what Tarantino is a very smart business move. He has succeeded in creating a controversy. The result of which is he is getting a lot of free publicity, which will probably translate into higher ticket sales.

Madonna was a master of creating a controversy to enrich herself.

Django Unchained..

Another "knock out" movie.. as if we needed it or Mississippi Burning in the first place. . .

"In the second case, 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."

This Django "kill whitey" movie should give the Knockout Game quite a boost.

It's a film made to appeal to the 95% who voted for Obama. A Black film.

Surprised it wasn't made by that racist black idiot Director Spike Lee — the Spike Jones of filmdom.

I dream of Brownie with the light blue jeans,
She is as sweet as licorice jelly beans.
She makes me happy and she makes me feel merrier,
Brownie is my favorite, she’s my pet terrier.

I love Brownie better than;
Jeanie...Jeanie
I love Brownie better than;
Jeanie without brown hair....

Personally, I think Tarantino is an evil genius.

He is one of my favorite directors, and Inglorious Basterds is one of my favorite movies.

However, I think I am going to pass on this one. I cannot stomach Jamie Foxx.

I guess the historical impossibility of a black bounty hunter in Texas going after white men doesn’t matter to anyone.

A black man with a gun would have brought every white Texan for miles to the lynching party.

The most violent movie (by far) that I've seen lately is "Death Sentence" starring (believe it or not) Kevin Bacon. I can only say that in that movie he was "more Bronson than Bronson"!

Nothing could be more wrong.

Black Cowboys

It is an unfamiliar part of the history of the old wild west to most, but there were actually about 10,000 to 15,000 black cowboys in the late 1860's and onwards. These men actually held quite a significant place in this part of history, after the Civil War, many of the freed slaves moved west to make a new life.

They worked on ranches and in cattle drives, and also rode in the many rodeos. Some of them joined the cavalry where they were known as Buffalo Soldiers and they brought back much needed meat and hides to resupply many of the stores.

A black man with a gun would have brought every white Texan for miles to the lynching party.


It's pretty funny that you think it's some new thing for westerns to be wildly beyond historical reality too.

Yeah but we’re talking pre-Civil war Texas.
Three words: John Wesley Hardin. The first man he killed, at age 15, was a black man who beat him wrestling in Polk county, after the war. Despite killing anywhere from 20-40 men, after getting out of prison he tried to practice law, though not very well. OK.

The closest thing I can imagine to the plot of this movie is Tarantino himself driving around Houston, dressed in drag, behind the wheel of a pink Land Rover with ‘Save The Whales’, ‘Rainbow Power’ and similar bumper stickers, and blasting pickup trucks from behind with a semi-horn from JC Whitney.
Another Quenton cartoon with almost lifelike characters.

Uh...if the story is set in 1850’s Texas, the use of the word ‘nigger’ is not a racial slur, but simply a descriptive phase. As in Mark Twain's “Huckleberry Finn.” At that time and place, it was merely one of the alternative pronunciations and spellings of Negro, i.e. ‘black person.’

To be sure, to describe another as black was negative enough.

“I’ve several of his films and cannot figure what is the appeal. I think they all suck”

I disagree. While his films are violent (it's a movie!) Sometimes weird. They are actually quite good.

Pulp Fiction is an iconic film. Great acting. Fantastic characters. I never get tired of watching it. If I run across it on the tube, I have to watch.

Kill Bill 1 & 2, again are masterpieces.

Sin City had to grow on me, but it too is great.

Inglourious Basterds was a fantastic movie also.

Reservoir Dogs and Grindhouse weren't my favs.

I can't wait to see Django Unchained.
