E46F white folks, you'll love this: "Django Unchained" sparks controversy

Apparently, in addition to the theme of the movie, Jamie Foxx jokes on SNL about being excited “to kill all the white people in the movie.”
KUHNER: Jamie Foxx and the rise of black bigotry
Age of Obama viewed as payback for slavery
Quote:
Anti-white bigotry has become embedded in our postmodern culture. Take Django Unchained. The movie boils down to one central theme: the white man as devil—a moral scourge who must be eradicated like a lethal virus. For decades, Hollywood, U.S. textbooks and higher education have stressed that America was founded upon slavery, sexism and genocide. In other words, white European civilization is the root of evil and imperial subjugation around the world.

When Germans were the bad guys in Inglorious Basterds, no one complained. Now that it's slaveowners, is there any grounds for complaints or are these complaints just hyperbolic whining and easy paychecks for these writers?

I thought that the actual killer (bounty hunter) in the movie was Christoph Waltz, who, IIRC, is white.

So this movie is not based on the life story of gypsy musician Django Reinhardt?

I had thought that it was about Django's heretofore untold secret life as a killer of whitey in the Deep South prior to the Civil War, in much the same vein as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter chronicled our 16th president's secret life as a killer of bloodsucking undead.

I had my suspicions they chose the title to trick unsuspecting Jews and Jazz fans into the theater.

Slave-owners are now equated to Nazis?

Really?

Look slavery has happened to all races, colors, creeds, sexes, whatever.. blacks enslaved blacks, whites enslaved blacks, blacks enslaved whites, Egyptians on Jews, English on Catholics, Americans on Irish, etc.. bigotry, discrimination, slavery, whatever.

The problem though is that the white man's guilt has been exacerbated and movies like this further the tension and further dilute history (making all of one group look evil).

Were all Germans evil simply because they wore the Nazi uniform? I think not. Were all whites evil because they had slaves? I think not. If this movie portrays such, it's not doing anyone any good.

sorry, but the reason American slave owners are brought into constant question, is because they were the first to bring into the world institutional racism. Sorry, American slave owners may have been the worst of the slave owners. Remember Nat Turner? Lol, silly white boy.

So, which would you rather be? A member of the National Socialist Party or a slave owner? Which would you want to be less?

Oh really, with all of your knowledge of slave owners of the late 1700s and early 1800s please elaborate how they were the worst of slave owners.

This cracker is not bothered. Sounds like a bunch of whining and complaining, as usual.
