i dont even remember the whites in that movieOuch

but i do agree with the part about the black guy not whipping his master. aint no slave not taking that opportunityLOL

That article/interview happened over a month ago, weeks before the official release of the movie. Nobody cared.

I watched it when it was on during Christmas.
I hated it....it was terrible. Confused
It didn't move me at all.

After reading the article I kinda agree. Some things in Roots were sensationalized. However, some things rang true and hit your heart a bit. I do like that Django shed light on a few things that are constantly glossed over. Like he said-black (slave) marriage and how serious it was to them. And how many times if they found out about it the couple would be sold to separate plantations. Also, the mandingo fighting, and the torture that went beyond being whipped-like rape and Broomhilda's character being kept in the sweatbox or whatever for days.

I think if Django was directed by a black man, a lot of these comments would be non-existent. African Americans don't seem to like the idea of a 'black movie' done by a white man. Then again, it doesn't seem like any black producers/directors are interested in doing a movie like this either.
