    'Django Unchained': Quentin Tarantino's Misappropriation of the N-Word via magazine.good.is

    why are people so obsessed with films, music, comedy, etc being offensive? while i would never use the word 'nigger' in daily conversation, i also don't treat it as if saying it summons the Dark Lord to my location to enact profound doom upon me and my kin. while that may sound hyperbolic, a lot of people on this forum are simply afraid of the appearance of the word.

    Quite frankly, I think what scares people the most about this particular film is that many white americans are afraid of the implication of another white american making a movie about slavery. i HAVE seen the movie, and while it doesn't solve the problem of racism in America (does any one artwork solve racisim?) it's a fantastic work.

    Additionally, no movie is for everyone. And, quite frankly, Michael Strassman (below), but if you haven't seen the film than you aren't in a position to comment on it at all. It's the same song-and-dance of people who deafly ban rap music because they are afraid of words and people.
