Django Rechained

In 2013, is the black gun violence Tarantino espouses really such a fascinating new phenomenon?

For generations now, American media have been encouraging blacks to take violent retribution. We’re coming up on close to a half-century of whites in the media egging on black badassery. How’s Tarantino’s macho minstrel show working out for black males, anyway? According to a 1967 government report sponsored by the Surgeon General, the black homicide rate began to rise in 1962 after a long decline. Mostly, though, whites just move out of the way and blacks kill each other. -- Tarantino Explained - Taki's Magazine
