In the entire movie white people for once as a whole were shown for what they were. The single "hero" went out of his way to declare himself a foreigner . The only thing that would have made it better is if the Dr. could have been a quadroon or mulatto that was passing. I guess they needed that 1 white with a heart but the rest of them were depraved and terrible.
 
lol...i also thought it was interesting that the dr was german...but that's another discussion...
 
i wonder if qt will make a prequel about the dr ( i can't even remember his damn name...that's how significant he was to me...but i remember calvin candy and big daddy...Stern Smile) and divulge that he was part black or sumthin like that...

Yep + wall to wall coverage about reverse racism on fox news.

Black people are so scurred of White people , geeez

Who cares what they think? Yea, Hollywood would never fund a movie about a slave revolt with no redeeming White characters. So what, let's pool resources and get the film made ourselves. We could do it in the same way Malcolm X was made

Yea, White people were mad at Malcolm X but it was made nonetheless

Alias, no. Just no. 

Aint nobody said nothing about being scared of white folks. Just pointing the reaction white folk would have had IF the film had been done differently. 

Heads up, Christopher Waltz (the Dr.) is going to be on The View in a minute.

Malcolm X is not a good example. At least an hour was dedicated to the "we're all brothers " theme.

Spike did another film overwhelmingly deemed racists by whites but i can not for the life of me remember the name...

Either way, i do wish Django would have went there, i would have like to have seen the fallout.
