Hollywood is not colorblind, as most people would like to think in this new day. Jamie Foxx understands that all too well. In an interview with Vibe Magazine, the actor expressed his feelings on the reception to his new movie, Django Unchained. The Quentin Tarantino film has been criticized for not being sensitive to the subject of slavery. However Foxx feels differently, telling the magazine, “There’s certain things that we watch as black people that if we don’t agree with it, we not only turn off the movie but we turn off that person.” “When we feel like the character was compromised by the white establishment.”
Would African Americans feel differently if those involved, telling this story, were all African American?
