Let's be honest

People are already so f*cking disrespectful to African Americans and our history. They even downplay how terrible it was and use the same reasoning that mrshairdo is using ("why didn't they just revolt or not work?") to discredit the blood, sweat and tears poured from the abused souls of my people

This is why some AA feel sensitive over this topic being covered with humor. It softens and lightens the horrid history of American slavery and we don't need that. (White) People already feel comfortable freely comparing the horrors of American slavery to the horrors of the Jewish Holocaust by ignorantly implying that the Holocaust was far worst because of the death toll (as if millions of Africans didn't die being thrown overboard in the Middle Passage)

This movie will undoubtedly give these ignorant thoughts more of a platform

but its been explained-

there is nothing humorous about slavery... and from the clips I've seen-- there is humorous twist to a situation that isn't funny..and James I'm seeing the same type of reviews.

this movie really can't be compared to IB-- like you keep doing b/c
the holocaust was thoughtfully left out of IB as to not ruffle feathers--
but the same respect isn't given to blacks in this movie.

I doubt SL has a problem w/ the showing of a revolt b/c yt ppl are being Killed--
but rather everything else.

I didn't say YOU did

I said "they even downplay how terrible it was and use the same reasoning that mrshairdo is using ("why didn't they just revolt or not work?") to discredit the blood, sweat and tears poured from the abused souls of my people"

You may be wondering with different intentions. My point is that they are not. They are using that logic against enslaved Africans

But like, it's a comedy/western featuring a negro riding a horse tho. Same thing right? Stop being so sensitive James.

you can make a revenge/humorous spaghetti western, leave the slavery out of it. tarantino isn't a dummy, i'm sure he could have pulled of a decent revenge film(since thats all he does) without the N word and slavery being the foundation.
