<quoted text>Three Hours of Caricature
In many ways Django is three hours of caricature.
Here is where the comedy functions as a disservice: the false struggle against “racism”—beloved by liberals of all complexions—is a cover for a struggle against real oppression and against the system of oppression itself.
None of the white slavers was portrayed in the all-American heroic mold of Thomas Jefferson or George Washington, two of the most revered African-owning individuals in the U.S.
All the “bad” white people in the movie are either hilariously stupid or sadistically depraved. The audience is invited to hate these brutal, Erskine Caldwell-like inbreeding-type cretins; because they are obviously cruel and depraved beyond redemption, it is okay to kill them all.
They are bestial, uncivilized deviants from what would now be considered the “American way.”
In a word, they are “racists,” individuals who revel in obvious disdain for and sometimes visceral hatred of African people.
Such hatred is no longer publicly permissible in 2013.
Since slavery is officially over and the word “n****r” proscribed from public usage and convention, demanding a degree of civility by whites towards Africans, those Africans deprived of the “racist” white enemy are generally unable to find their political bearings.
Nor was a connection drawn by the moviemakers between what these southern “miscreants” were doing in the South and the role of banks, insurance companies, stock markets and most industry in the U.S. North and all of Europe.
Uh oh, I think I picked up a straggler.

At last: a revolutionary African analysis of Django, a movie that “does not have the ability to criticize the institution of slavery.” Jamie Foxx’s character “does not enlist his captive brothers and sisters in the enterprise of ending slavery or their own enslavement.” And, he is disconnected, choosing only “to free his wife and to exact revenge for wrongs done to her.”
Django Unchained, Or,“Killing Whitey While Protecting White Power”: A Review
by Omali Yeshitela
This article originally appeared in Uhuru News.
“The main problem with Django is its function as a cover for slavery and capitalism.”
It has been a long time since a movie has sparked as much controversy as Django Unchained.
Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, the movie stars Jamie Foxx as Django, a vengeance-motivated cowboy “ex”-slave.
Also appearing are Leonardo DiCaprio as Calvin Candie, a notoriously sadistic plantation slave owner; Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Shultz, a German bounty hunter who purchases, befriends and accompanies Django on his odyssey; Samuel L. Jackson as Stephen, the depraved “Uncle Tom” house negro; and Kerry Washington as Broomhilda, Django’s enslaved wife, whose sale and forced separation from Django is the motivation for his quixotic blood hunt.
Good movie.

Tarantino, good liberal that he is, keeps the masses of Africans out of the process of ending the system of oppression by unleashing a special negro, the “one in ten thousand,” as Django is characterized.

Indeed, Django is the Barack Hussein Obama solution transposed to 1858 U.S. history.

One must remember that 1858 was just two years before the beginning of the U.S. Civil War. It was a time of extreme tensions in the U.S., in general, and the South, in particular.

In 1859 John Brown would lead the raid on Harpers Ferry, Virginia, in an unsuccessful attempt to initiate a rebellion by enslaved Africans.

Brown’s action did not happen in a political vacuum.

More than 1,000 slave escapes happened annually during the 1850s, and the period was wrought with southern white anxiety, northern anti-slavery agitation and growing restlessness among the captured African population.

The fact that Django’s adventures were set in the U.S. just two years prior to the Civil War clearly indicates that Tarantino intended to mark a historical turning point in the fortunes of “America.”

In many ways Tarantino’s task as a historian looking backward is the same as that of the liberal ruling class of today

Tarantino Preserves A System Of White Power

In Django Tarantino creates the “exceptional” negro to fight all the bad, un-American Americans in order to protect the capitalist system of white power.

The evidence for this position can be found in the movie itself.

Dr. King (coincidental?) Shultz explains his non-slavery capitalist enterprise to Django thusly:“The way the slave trade deals in human lives for cash, bounty hunting deals in corpses.”

And elsewhere in the movie,“Like slavery, it’s a flesh-for-cash business.”

Other examples of Tarantino’s fidelity to capitalism, which clearly rests on a foundation of slavery, was King’s insistence on purchasing Django from a white slaver and securing a bill of sale, even after Django’s slaver had been wounded and was going to be killed.

The same happened with Django’s wife, Broomhilda, for whom a bill of sale (promissory note?) was taken from King’s dead body after her cruel “master,” Candie, had been killed and the “Big House” was in the process of being destroyed.

No attempt was made to help Django escape from slavery.

And the elaborate, dangerous ruse to purchase Broomhilda from Candie was one hundred times more problematic than an escape attempt could ever have been.

However, escaping would have been a serious breech of capitalist etiquette, even as it applied to slavery. It would have been bad business.

Escaping would have suggested the possibility of a Malcolm X “by any means necessary” solution, which the fictional bounty hunter, Dr. King, opposed no less than did his Civil Rights namesake of the 1950s and 60s.

Meanwhile, in the real world ... the Republican House has increased spending by more than $350 billion since taking over in Jan. 2011. The strange thing is the government's been funded by continuing resolution since then. So, there has to be active legislation to spend money. In the GOP House the Hastert Rule says that no bill can be put up for a vote without support from the "majority of the majority". In other words, all that spending has to be approved by a majority of Republicans before it is even brought up for a vote.
With all this chest thumping from the right about how much Democrats suck, keep in mind that its lies like this make the Republicans suck even worse.
The government has been funded by continuing resolutions since Obama took office, idiot. In case you've been in a coma the past 4 years, we haven't had a budget since Obama darkened the White House doors with his shadow.

If you want to see the actual spending since the Democrats took over all the purse strings of government in January, 2007, just look here:

http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/

You'll disciver that the completely out of control spending began coincident with the Democrats taking control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007.

By the way, why did every single goddam Democrat member of Congress vote against all two of the budgets Obama submitted of the four he was supposed to submit?
You do realise that this means every single Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot, don't you?

Broomhilda’s role in the movie is to appear naked, to look pretty, to simper and faint and, in the end, to applaud the heroics of her husband. This caricaturization is not accurate of the enslaved African woman; it is more like that of the idealized white southern belle.

Similarly, Samuel L. Jackson’s Stephen is so over the top that his character serves to help disguise or obscure the race traitors and neocolonialists, most of whom walk among us today but without Jackson’s obvious, degenerate sneer and bootlicking persona.

“Broomhilda’s role in the movie is to appear naked, to look pretty, to simper and faint and, in the end, to applaud the heroics of her husband.”

Jackson’s character is a cover for the Obamas, Nutters, Outarras and Kabilas of the world who speak and dress “well” and cause more death and destruction for Africans in a day than an old “handkerchief head” Uncle Tom could do in a hundred years.

Tarantino is quite aware of a political mission with this work.

He says to the UK screening audience, "We all intellectually 'know' the brutality and inhumanity of slavery, but after you do the research, it's no longer intellectual any more, no longer just historical record–you feel it in your bones.

“It makes you angry, and want to do something … I'm here to tell you, that however bad things get in the movie, a lot worse shit actually happened.

"When slave narratives are done on film, they tend to be historical with a capital H, with an arms-length quality to them.

“I wanted to break that history-under-glass aspect, I wanted to throw a rock through that glass and shatter it for all times, and take you into it."

The True Insult To Our Ancestors
Tarantino’s motivation is that he is an angry white liberal attempting to evoke a particular angry response from his audience.
Our opposition to his message should express itself as opposition to liberalism and its perennial attempt to cover the real contradictions of capitalist-colonialism, sometimes in the most violent way.
To dismiss the movie because of a presumption of Tarantino’s racism or to ignore it because it is an “insult” to our ancestors is to miss the point.
The real insult to our ancestors is slavery itself and the capitalist social system that slavery birthed.
Our opposition must be directed at the system, and, in opposing the system, we reject the liberal solution presented by Tarantino, which obscures the real contradiction and functions to cover for and protect capitalist white power while offering up offensive white individuals for sacrifice.
We reject Django because it minimizes the role of the organized masses in making and changing history, reducing us to political fodder for white liberals and their special,“one in ten thousand” negros, or,“Talented Tenth.”
We reject the movie because so many Africans in colonial housing projects and oppressed communities throughout the world, who are experiencing the historical lash of slavery in the imperialist conditions forced upon us today, will share Tarantino’s anger and may accept his incorrect solution.
We reject the movie because to deal with a severe crisis of imperialism requires sober reflection, historical materialist-based African Internationalist analysis and the organized intervention of the masses of our people to destroy the entire capitalist colonialist social system.
Ironically, Jackson’s character, Stephen, speaks the most cogent words of the entire movie.
As he lies dying in the Big House at Candie Land, the final victim of Django’s wrath, he yells to Django,“Cain’t no n****r gunfighter kill all the white folks in the world! They gon’ find yo black ass!”
Indeed, the task of the colonized is to kill the colonizer and the system of colonialism. The task of the slave is to kill the slave master and the system of slavery.
