How is that attacking Spike Lee? She even says "she loves spike" and they were "just talking about school daze."

You wanna know why you don't see kike in anything?

Don't get mad at me, I'm just being real here. It's because Jews aren't keeping the word "KIKE" alive. You don't hear jews calling other jews "kikes."

I hear "n*gga" all the time in music, movies, high schools, colleges, fu*king everywhere. If you don't want a word to be so commonplace then it shouldn't be used period. It can't be exclusive.

So you can either be mad at the word and stop using it, or you can just consider it bastardized and accept it.


Someone gets it.

fu*k art, its history

if you want to act like the word can't be used then i guess we can act like slavery shouldn't be taught in schools

it happened, acknowledge it, and don't throw a bi*ch fit when its used in context

If I'm going to expose myself to a film with a bunch of neanderthals barking "n*****" , it damn sure better be of high quality and by a brilliant mind. Tarantino hasn't made a high quality move in over a decade which makes Django something I will surely pass on. I honestly don't know who the hell Sarah Silverman is. However, I expect a devil to come up with every excuse possible to justify his of her natural born evil mentality....

At the end of the day, the movie is about slavery. Regardless if it's a white man or black I would think the word is justified being used. Some people are just extra sensitive when it comes to race and it's cool to be that way, but just don't expect to be able to say whatever you want and then think others need to have restraints

She got a point about the slavery part too... fu*k did Spike Lee want the slave owners in the movie to call em? "jiggaboos" or "spooks"? no he woulda complained about that too... its only okay for him to use the N-word a 100 times in a movie...

Its our fault so called black people. We are the slaves known to man. Thats not the worst part most of our dumbass dont care. We love trying to be like these people. They hate you.. No seriously they hate you and just like the 60's we still trying to be with these heathens.
True sh*t, same thing with most minorities in America. Everyone wants to a.ssimilate into the American culture aka white culture.

eh, can't say she's wrong. I'd be more offended if Quentin was on some political correctness sh*t and didn't use the word at all because it would be seen as offensive.

Tariq Nasheed has a good podcast on his thoughts and opinions of the movie

My son's mother is black. I'm white. Get the fu*k over that word being used in a movie though.

I mean seriously, someone gets k!lled in a movie, someone gets k!lled in real life. It has happened, is happening, and will happen again. Are we going to outlaw that in film even though its horrible? No. fu*k no. Take notes young soap box children.

You really can't tell people how they feel when it comes to movies. I mean art is art based on people viewing it and not all people views it the same way.

As far as the n-word goes... I don't see how it wouldn't be use heavily in a slave movie.

At the same time you can't tell people that they shouldn't get offended. That's how they feel and that's how they're gonna react.

IMO, however, I feel like the n-word is only given power to people's reactions to it. Just like any other word more or less. Should we (blacks) still allow this word to make us feel a certain way is the question. I understand how saying it can make us feel a certain way though.

Seeing black slaves getting whipped and then called a ****** I. A movie in this day and age can't be hard on some.

Pimp'n Says: Stupid mothafuqa u gotta be white. My family & I'm quite sure thousands of others watched Roots & Queen over da holidays bcuz it's our history. Why wouldn't we want our children of dis generation 2 know about how their ancestors were treated by dem evil son of a b!tches? White folk love 2 try pretend like da sh*t didn't happen & racism doesn't exist.
Yeah I'll watch Roots while I'm opening up my Christmas presents Any "black" person who feels like they gotta watch anything just because it depicts someone elses version of "black history" is an idiot. Whether its Roots or this bullsh*t QT just released. n*ggas came at me with that "you gotta go checkout Red Tails cause its about our Black Air Men" No I dont.

Pimp'n Says: You want your family to learn about true black history? It aint no sh*t you'll see aired on basic cable and especially on fake a.ss, gimmicky a.ss, need to be cancelled a.ss BET
