Jews get protected in Hollywood no doubt, but I think a movie that depicts racism toward any other ethnicity/cultural group would still be as successful and as great as Django is

Because socio-economically blacks (and other minorities) are at a disadvantage in America and oftentimes do not have the same access as aspiring white directors to secondary education, career networking, and other opportunities.

Yet in spite of all of that, Tarantino is a superior director to any black director. Maybe in 10-15 years when there are more qualified black directors one of them will take a shot at covering slavery in a feature-length film.
I agree and I disagree at the same time. I'll just leave it at that.

Now your just talking outta your a.ss... You don't even know any black director outside of Spike, John Singlton and Antone Fuquia. Get the fu*k outta here with that not qualified sh*t, how the fu*k do you know who's qualified and who's not? Whats the qualification for making a slave film fu*k boy? All of the above directors I named alone have a higher education then Tarantino. Shut the fu*k up idiot.

Lol why you so mad kid?

He asked why a slave movie with a black director wouldn't have same amount of popularity and appeal as a Tarantino movie and it's pretty simple answer to me. Tarantino is one of the best directors EVER, gets all the best actors, and has directed many CLASSIC movies. Unfortunately due to the fact that we are only recently removed from the civil rights era and socio-economically minorities are at a disadvantage there aren't many quality black directors on Tarantino's level, however I see that changing within the next 10-15 years because there are already many very talented black actors which means more quality black directors will come in time.

And I didn't say Tarantino had a higher education than those black directors just what white directors in general have had more opportunities in the past making them better directors. However like I said because of the direction our country is going in there are going to be more quality black directors in the future.

I have no clue what I said that would offend you

You said Tarantino is better then all black directors, I disagree with that. He does have more opportunity to shoot what he wants. He's in my top 3 but I know from his mouth he's scared to make films because he doesn't want to make a bad one. Hence the reason he only has 7 over 20 years. What pissed me off is you speaking on qualification and education. I'm in school now for film knowing that whatever degree I finish with is not gonna make me "qualified" in Hollyweirds eyes. It's more to it then that, Spike Lee masters degree and he can't get what he wants made. Education has sh*t to do with film making, QT stopped in like 9th grade. Hollywood is disneyland for racist and that's that, no other explanation for some the bullsh*t that goes on in the Hollywood system.

Oh, I understand now. I struck a chord with the education comment. If you re-read my posts though I didn't put much emphasis at all on education, more-so white privilege in general. I know that QT dropped out of HS.

A poster asked me why can't a black director direct a slave movie with as much popularity, appeal, and viewer interest as QT can.

Do you think there is a black director out there with the name recognition of the Tarantino brand, the recent resume (within last 20 years), and the ability to get a stacked cast like QT? <<< The answer to the question:

Im more so a little vexed that muthafuhkin 2012 we cant get a black director to do a film about these type of things and get the same "excitement and praise" as a white guy?
And in my opinion QT is a better director than any current black director. However QT ranks very very high on my list of current directors still doing it, so that's why I said that. It doesn't even have to be a race thing I just have him top 5ish on my current list so he has better than 99% of directors out there to me.

Actually, one of the most important points of Hitler's anti-semetic brainwashing amongst the German people was turning the word "Jew" into a derogatory term. Much like "Gay" and "Homo" have been turned into homophobic terms in the US.

As much as you worship this man none of his family was slaves and hes never been called a n'gger so how is he better suited to tell a black mans story then a black man?

Point me to a director once owned by a white man and I'll agree with you. Should a psycho have directed American Psycho? Should a marine direct that new Osama movie coming out? Why didn't a man from Bethleham direct Passion of The Christ? Why didn't a former NFL player direct Any Given Sunday? Why didn't a white supremacist direct American History X?

I don't understand what you're getting at. In order to direct something you need to experience it? Hollywood would be a lot less creative if you were in charge..

People taking this movie way too seriously. While there is racially charged humor, there also is gripping and dramatic portrayals of slavery. It's all done in a smart way, as in there is a clear distinction on the part you are suppose to laugh at, and the parts you arn't If you are looking for a real life account of slavery this isn't the movie for you.

The editing was questionable, the violence gratuitous. This movie delivers a great experience that tests a wide range of human emotion.

He's in my top 3 as well but I have Spike and Scorsese above him. Django was not a fu*king slave film at all there's is nothing historically accurate in it besides that there's slaves.

To answer your question which is not a clear cut answer, yes. Heres the thing QT doesn't have the resume in films that Spike has. If Spike has just 7 films he'd be on Crooklyn.

Moving away from Spike, Tim Story has an extremely diverse resume when it comes the actors he's worked with, but doesn't have the name. I do think he could pull if off if given the opportunity. F Gary Gray is another name director with one of the better resumes, Forest Whitaker, John Singleton, Stan Lathan etc. Any of these guys could direct a slave film or any other black film but a) won't get a 83 mil budget b) won't get the studios support and a Christmas release c) would be twice as crucified if they made a violent black film let alone with that violence directed at white folk.

My whole point was it's not qualification and it's not skill level it's opportunity right now. This movie has a great story but technically it was lacking the pop of k!ll Bill or Pulp Fiction. Thinking of the power QT has in hollywood is crazy because theres no way any Black director could get this make made. If on an equal playing field I have no doubt they could make the film and probably make it more realistic.

I'm sure the Germans had their slurs for Jewish people, point is he stayed the fu*k away from using them. Like I said Tarentino knows who to fu*k with and who to stay away from.
