Critic Armond White has no love for Sam Jackson or Django Unchained.

White’s original review of Django:

“Roles like Jules in Pulp Fiction, Ordell in Jackie Brown and now Stephen the ultimate Uncle Tom display Jackson’s patented shamelessness–his Nigger Jim flair. Jackson reverses the anger that 70s black militants felt toward the Uncle Tom figure into an actorly endorsement. He embodies the dangerous Negro stereotypes harbored by Tarantino and every Huck Finn wannabe.”

I, of course, disagree with that assessment.  And we have posted a few reviews of Django Unchained.  I think there’s a reason why the breaking the chains motif looks a lot like a Black Power salute…
