the point I took away from the movie was that had the slaves been fighting on an equal battleground with dumb, egotistical white man, they would have prevailed as victors a long ass time ago

I really thought Django was a lone ranger in all of this. I didn't know that that great white hero was going to a part of this. I really thought Jaime was the main character, but he really wasn't.

Random Thoughts was dead on in his review of the movie. Sam Jackson was the mastermind behind dumb ass candyman's evil schemes.

Had Sam Jackson's character not been so brainwashed to worship his master, we could have had our first black president in 1865LOL

eta: had they explored his character more like RT mentioned in his post

there goes that whole inherently inferior, submissive black man theory

So, you think Candyman was not the real villian?

@kkscot
What I took from Sam's character was a debunking of the submissive, inferiority theory

Candyman was the main vilian only because his resources.

Mastermind or sell-out?

SLJ's character was not a mastermind, he was just more observant than idiot Calvin Candie (and knowing) of the slave ways/interactions

Hell, even mistress Laura noticed something between Django and Broomhilda

Sam was a survivalist. No different from Django allowing the runaway Mandingo slave to be slaughtered by those dogs.

 Does it make it right? No. But he had to do what he had to do.
