All I hear is N-word, N-word, N-word!!!!


By now (at least I hope so) everyone has seen Django in theaters or on bootleg -- whatever floats your  boat -- and have been commenting diligently on Twitter and Facebook about the movie. I first want to say, I personally h*** #eracethehate the soundtrack of the movie. I don’t get how you can mix country, a Spanish lullaby, and Rick Ross…makes no sense, but I digress.  WAS THE USE OF THE “N-WORD” TOO EXCESSIVE AND UNECESSARY FOR THE BIG SCREEN?!....African-Americans have been debating for years about the abolishment of this “Jim Crow slang”.  In 2007, the “N-Word” was supposedly put to rest by the NAACP, but no much has changed since its decease.  Renowned director, Spike Lee, refuses to watch the movie because “it’d be disrespectful to my ancestors to see that film.  That’s the only thing I’m going to say.  I can’t disrespect my ancestors.”  Spike Lee’s view on the movie has sparked controversy with rap’s most recent phenomenon and Eracist, Trinidad James.   Trinidad who uses the “n-word” often in his lyrics is amongst those who believe that (his) using the “N-Word” does not depict what he believes in and what type of person he is.  ARE WE A DIRECT RESULT OF WHAT WE SEE AND HEAR IN THE MEDIA?  Despite his unorthodox and gaudy persona, upon meeting Trinidad James, he seems a very humble individual.   As for Django, overall Django was better than the trailer made it out to be. Although the plot was sometimes predictable and Tarantino has this “signature” of over exaggerated close ups and unrealistic gory scenes, I still enjoyed the movie. I would rate this 4/5 stars.  What did you think about the soundtrack?  Will this movie affect how white people view blacks or vice versa? How do you feel about the usage of the N-Word in today’s media (this question will never get old) Comments……
