In regards to this piece, I am proud of the author for having the courage to speak on her thoughts on the film we are all entitled to our own opinion and sharing our opinions is a great way to gain insight from other folks that we might not have thought of previously that help shape our knowledge of people and the world, everyones commets have helped me better develop my thoughts on this article.
I was able to watch the movie and will say that regardless of tarantino's intentions this film has generated rich discussion on the topic of slavery and the word nigger. It is really important for our growth as the human species to talk to each other about how we feel in regards to the issue of racism in the name of collective progress.
We all have had our own experiences in life that shape the way we view the world around us.
I dont really want to say that it is just a movie but in some ways i dont think it is fair for us to have high expectations that this film be totally accurate or culturally sensitive. Tarantino although a great filmmaker is a regular person like the rest of us that has alot to learn.
