A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
Following my general idea that if I contribute to the wealth of liberal spokespersons, I'm furthering their agenda, I haven't seen the movie, nor will I. I won't pay to see a QT film, nor will I pay money to watch Sam Jackson act. They have their view of the world (which is in direct opposition to my own) and I'd rather not put my dollars in their pocket.

It's like stink on poop, it's everywhere.
The facts are, From 1976 to 2005, 86% of white victims were killed by whites, and 94% of black victims were killed by blacks. During those same years, blacks murdered more whites than whites murdered blacks, consistently. Every year. Where did Farakhan obtain his facts? He made them up to create "victims" over whom to maintain himself as leader and possibly spark some of whom to violence. But he maintains centuries of interracial fear that cuts both ways. As virtuous, educated, and responsible citizens we owe such statements outrage. It is the lack of outrage that allows the fear to fester in society and that is the real danger. It seems the two lady posters, Spirit51 and JeanLouise, get this.
QT, who brags of roots lacking virtue, uses irony in a powerful way to show a history that is rarely considered but at least possible, unlike his last movie depicting Hitler's and his top staff's being the target of an allied bomb plot. Django is a love story in blaxploitation style, as SayVandelay noted, with a white mentor. The trials that Django faces and overcomes are obstacles to love. Typical theme. Unique plot.
