Like I said, the movie simply wasn't deep enough for me to get all worked up over. But as I watched, I'll admit that Spike Lee's criticisms were always in the back of my mind therefore I was practically waiting with bated breath to see if his analysis would come into fruition. 

I waited and I waited, there were times when I sat on the edge of my seat in anticipation. But just like the full dynamics and exploration of the love story, it never materialized (in my humble opinion)

Lets discuss the opening scene when Django along with the other 4 slaves were being transported by the vicious overseers to the plantation and in pops the great white bails bondsman who tried to bargain for Django's papers. 

Without telling to much of the movie, when the good white dude gave the gun to one of the slaves and he held it with fear and trepidation clear in his eyes, why, Alias do you think he didn't use that opportunity to kill the good white man, finish off the evil white dude on the horse and run towards freedom? 

That scene was a PERFECT setup for the rest of the movie in that, on a shallow level, depicted the slaves' lack of resources, intimidation of the white man, and overall downtrodden psyche.They didn't kill the white man (at first) because they didn't have any options. 

The option was given to them AFTER the bails bondsman pointed out the way to freedom and told the slaves to unchain themselves, kill off the evil dude and run for their lives. Do you not get that, Alias!

Like I said, that scene was the PERFECT setup for the viewers to grasp the complexities of the slaves distressed mentality. It explained the lack of "fire" and submissiveness that you speak of. 

brb, I have more to say

You think that was his intentions with that scene? lol

I'll be honest, I don't know QT well enough to come a conclusion like that but I will say that whatever "setup" he depicted with that scene was torn down by the constant talk of "inherent submissiveness" that prevaded he second half of the film

And that inherent submissiveness a.k.a the stockholm syndrome thus became null and void by one man fighting to save his woman. Big smile
