By now it should be obvious that “Django Unchained” director Quentin Tarantino has no problem with folks taking offense at his liberal use of the N-word either within his movies, or while discussing his films in interviews.

Still, the press room at last night’s Golden Globes appeared taken aback when the director, who won for best screenplay, began dropping the N-bomb again.

Addressing the unending conversation over the 100-plus times the characters in the slavery-themed spaghetti Western used the racist term, Tarantino himself uttered the phrase, to audible gasps from the scribes in the winners’ room.

“They think I should soften it, that I should lie, that I should massage.” Tarantino said, referring to writers and filmmakers such as Spike Lee, who have criticized his use of the slur in the film. The film’s setting of 1860 antebellum south, he said, made that impossible, as did his artistic integrity. “I would never do that when it comes to my characters,” the director added.

He also pointed out that slavery is still going on across the globe — “go to Malaysia” — and even in the United States, the legal system has a bias against African Americans.

“Drug laws put so many black males in jails,” he said. “The way private and public prisons trade prisoners back and forth. It’s like they are not even hiding it anymore.”

After Tarantino exited the press room, Don Cheadle who won a Golden Globe for his role on the show “House of Lies” got some laughter out of the press after he said “Please no N***** questions…Black-people questions are alright though.”

  1. The N word is this movie was not said no more than in Roots, Queen, Amistad and any other black movie in that era and time. i don’t know why people are making such a big deal out of the move. Spike Lee says the movie is a disgrace and chose not to even see the movie. how can you comment on a movie and have not seen it. His answer should have been i have not seen the movie so i cannot comment to it.

    Back in the days…of slavery it wasn’t a hot button word. If you’ve read what I’ve said, I was saying in terms of the time period of the movie.

    I’ll reply more to what you’ve said later when I can

  3. We as Americans concern ourselves with the N word and racist statements, but we continue to be label ourselves as Black American and you don’t realize black is a color and not a race of people. They have Americans so bottled up on racism that we forget that we are Americans. I didn’t come from Africa so I’m not African American; I was born in the USA so I’m an American. In 2013 the N word should not affect you or your children. When are we going to show America that were just American.

  4. I thought the movie was very funny…it was/is not a historical movie…Samuel L Jackson had me cracking up…As far as the N-word, that was used then…get over it…EVERY Thing is so OVER sensentive, you can hardly speak your mind now a days for fear of reprisal…Damn!!!ooops was that profanity????

    obvioulsy this is one white mans way of shoving the N word down our throats and in our face and getting paid for it! He placed high profile black actors in the movie knowing that blacks would flock to the theaters to see the movie- and of course the whites will follow because they get to hear th N word used over and over and over again! I, for one, will not be see this movie!

    • Yes! tarintino is slick for this doing this. I think its pathetic. Families have died just so they werent call a N****r!!! Its pure craziness. I’m no prude nor do I have a stick in my butt , Sandy12 I agree with you. When the people are saying Oh forget about it ! Its a nothing word I do hope those are the same people who are on the recieving end of what they have forgotten.
