Tarantino says a lot with his choice of music (you could use any of his past works as a reference) and you will notice that every aggressive rap song is used after the act on black on black crime; however non rap black music is used in scenes where justified justice of black vs white oppressors is about to take place.

"I'm not the same I was, I'm not the same as Candie, I will kill him if I have the chance, I won't resist it.". Thank you!

Set Parental Lock. Django Unchained offers its own slave-revenge fantasy, but it sticks closer to the more conventional aspects of the Western than any of Williamson's films do -- in Tarantino's world, the outcast individual is mostly in it for himself; he's not standing up on behalf of his fellow subjugated man. And not just any white man, he's a white man who's had a couple of run-ins with Spike Lee -- and while Spike's standing in the smarty-art black community has been a bit tenuous at times, he's still on the team.

But it also gives one of the most shockingly graphic depictions of the horror that was American slavery that we've ever seen in a Hollywood film. Despite its shortcomings, Tarantino has crafted an... interesting... alternative take on a difficult period of this country's history.

All except one, that's right in the middle, that has little to non graphical on-screen blood-and-gore violence, and to me was the actual message-conveying part of the movie, the one the makers *wanted* everyone to watch, to have everybody in the cinema to just sit there and not miss a single second of it, because it was the most important part of the movie. It's wonderful today that we can get social, political and psychological understandings about subject matter in film and literature. This is pretty typical in contemporary cultures and thus why he is so admired by many. Shooting Candie rather than shaking his hand was Schultz's first real passionate and instinctive response to Candie's horrific treatment of slaves and people in general.
