From what I've read it seems that many people are insulted by the very idea of this movie even existing. These people seem to think that this insulting film is "disrespecting" and "stereotyping" whites, as well as American history and that Django Unchained is likely to cause racial tensions. If you are one of those people: you are an idiot (and possibly a racist). First of all, the idea that you want to protect the "honor" of our slave-owning ancestors is laughable. At their best these people were ignorant and at worst they were sadistic. this is a fact. Sure, they'll probably be depicted as purely cartoon characters in the movie, and I'm sure if it was a white guy killing these evil characters you'd be okay with it. But since it's a "blackie" doing the killing in this context, well, that just makes you uncomfortable. And because of the fact that this Django character is killing off white people in a similarly brutal fashion that the Bride killed her attackers and the Basterds killed the Nazis (both of which you sensitive morons didn't complain about).... it's racism.
No. It's not. You refuse to look at the historical context because it makes you squirmy and I can garuntee that if the roles were switched and that this movie was movie was about a white guy killing off ruthless black warlords in Africa... none of you hypocrites would even bat an eye. I don't see this subject being treated in a very delicate or even remotely subtle manner, after all it is an exploitation movie made by Tarantino, and I'm personally fine with that. But to you fools, since us white people are the ones being exploited (for once) than we should be outraged. Because as we all know... white people have obviously had a very rich history of being oppressed and to even mention us in a negative light IN ANY WAY is just downright vulgar. Get over yourself, people. Stop living in whatever anti-Reformist type of fantasy you're in and just take this light jab at our history. After all, everyone knows that we can dish out our own jabs well enough.
