1) Notice how django only kills white people who deserve it (i.e., that have either wronged him personally in some way or have engaged in heinous violence). The rage of black folk that results in retribution is viewed as discriminate and selective not indiscriminate.
2) The sheer list of anti-black violence in the film far exceeds anything that i have seen in any other film: e.g., rape; torture via castration, beating, being placed in enclosed space (the hole) and branding; forced prostitution; an untold number of insults and other verbal humiliations; violent brutality (e.g., when the dog ripped apart the one-eyed, runaway from the tree); and the use of a variety of metal restraints (e.g., chains and that crazy neck thing with wires sticking up).
3) The question posed by dicaprio's character regarding the response of blacks to whites in a situation of slavery: "why don't they just kill us?" dicaprio's answer is that blacks have the subservient gene but tarantino seems to pose this question more broadly given the ridiculous theory put forward by dicaprio's character. indeed, thinking of the kaiser soze like character played by samuel l. jackson as well as the others on the different plantations, the answer seems to simply be opportunity to train and be armed. not just by a sympathetic white person (from germany) but, at the end, presumably by django himself. django, freedom fighter. django on the loose. django x. hmmmmmmmmm.
4) Django unchained seems to = roots + Sankofa + Gladiator + Ip Man +Eréndira +Dave Chappelle + Unforgiven + Amistad + Blazing Saddles +Jeremiah Johnson (film) + The Believer
5) I will be thinking about the film and the issues raised by it for quite some time. it's like the wire, rashomon and maus in that respect.
6) How many blacks do you believe have been killed in film by whites relative to the number of whites killed by blacks (outside of war films)? How many whites have been killed by whites relative to the number of blacks killed by blacks? Someone has to have figure this out.
