I find the outrage around things like that a little bit weird. Like people are aware they’re actors right? RDJ doesn’t going around actually calling people retards, same as Jack Black doesn’t offer to sick dude’s dicks for heroin. They’re both massive caricatures of characters, not a commentary on what’s acceptable to say… For it being blackface, I didn’t notice all that many people getting worked up about it. Yeah, because the character was in blackface, not the actor.
What I find surprising about the ill will towards Django was far more historically accurate than most. It is far better to represent history accurately than the timid imagined past were apparently racism wasn’t invented yet (because you don’t see it represented). Yea that’s a total scarecrow, nobody was really upset bout it. Especially considering it wasn’t anywhere near minstrel blackface.
