Tavis Smiley on Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'

imageimage

"Django isn’t the only thing that’s unchained in Hollywood. We are becoming more and more untethered from the truth …”

"Tarantino even went on the record saying Roots was inauthentic.”

"One might have a stronger stomach for a movie like Django if there was a library of films I could go to that tells the authentic story of slavery and segregation. But since that library doesn’t exist, since there’s no balance in Hollywood when it comes to the complexities of black life in America”

“There’s a history here of black people trying to tell the story, and when they try to tell the story, Hollywood doesn’t support their telling of the story, and when the story is told, they get robbed of Oscars!
