I’m still working on my blog post about Django Unchained but until then … read this article from Clutch Magazine.
The article focuses on a moment during an interview about Sam’s role in Django Unchained. The interviewer, a white male, could not say the word nigger in front of Samuel L. Jackson, even thought it was part of a question pertaining to a movie that has gratuitous use of the word.
I will go ahead and say this now … I will use the word Nigger on this blog if the situation calls for it. I will not censor myself. I dare you to say you have never used the word … I don’t believe you.
To be honest I only say “the n-word” when speaking to white people. I’m still trying to figure out why I do that. Maybe because I don’t want them to say it back? Who knows …
Anyway … go read this article and watched the video embedded in it.
If you haven’t seen Django Unchained, go see it. Once I figure out my angle, I’ll be writing about it and (of course) provided suggested reading materials.
