nah, its because no one would want to touch that subject

imagine trying to pitch that: "lets make a film about black people bringing harm to white people"

 

even if it was a film that was obviously completely fictional, you think white or black people would be comfortable watching that?

the only reason why it works the other way around is because you sell it as telling a story about something bad that happened, you tell it in a way that everyone knows it was a terrible thing and there is a general moral of the story that: slavery, hate crime, racism, etc is bad. it just wouldn't work the other way

russell simmons was talking about this in his breakfast club interview

about how its impossible to make a film about a black 'hero' such as nat turner

django is killing slave owners, its going around being the hero, and he's going around doing it with his white mate so it's not a sort of "them against us" stance, its right against wrong

its not black on white abuse and its not black people having one up over white people

 
(I assume you were referencing 'django unchained', I haven't watched the early 'django' films)
ain't watched equalizer
