Famed film maker Quentin Tarantino has drawn the wrath of a number of people and organization with his latest film, Django Unchained, which Stars Jamie Foxx and Kerri Washington. What seems to be the driving force behind the outrage is what is considered the excessive use of the N-Word. Blacks and whites alike, in a considerable number, are finding it offensive and Tarantino has taken the brunt of the backlash behind the movie.
Tarantino and actors like Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson (Who also has a role in the film) have defended the film by saying that the films depiction of the south in that era and environment is accurate and it was a reality of that time.
Recently in an interview with MTV, one of Hip Hops most respected personalities spoke out on behalf of the film and Tarantino. Rapper Nas said that the film’s representation of the south during slavery is accurate and it brings an authenticity to the film. He also said that Tarantino is one of the greatest film makers of this era and he should have the right to express himself is his art genre in any way he wants.
“A movie about slavery and you don’t hear the n-word? That don’t make any sense. I didn’t see what the big fuss was about. It’s a movie, movies by [Tarantino], why should we be surprised if the movie is raw? He’s one of the greatest filmmakers of our generation, and we don’t go there to see anything less than rawness, so if it’s gonna be language or goriness…he’s an artist, and artists have to express themselves and that’s just what he’s doing.”
Nas is the latest in a line of black entertainers that have spoken out on the film, many in favor of Tarantino’s right to express himself in his movies.
