SLAP!

Campbell makes some good points. The “N-word” was indeed a part of everyday language, and I’d imagine in the antebellum South, it was likely used pretty frequently.

And yes, Tarantino is a better filmmaker. Spike Lee could never have pulled off a film like “Django Unchained” (which is actually pretty darn good.....I found it better than “Inglorious Basterds”).

Read Huckleberry Finn if you want to see how often “the N-word” was used in everyday life.

This is like trying to criticize Shakespear for excessive use of “Thee” and “Thou” and “Me-thinks”

I have no idea who often people said N_ _ _ _ _ in the 1800s. I’ve read that the word “Nigra” was used a lot. The N_ _ _ _ _ _ word was used a lot in the 50s and 60s and it’s being used more and more now. Just look at the movie. Not long ago the word was never said in a movie.
