Boston Globe Film Critic Likens Samuel L. Jackson’s “Django” Character to Black Republicans

Boston Globe film critic Wesley Morris, who is African-American, compared Samuel L. Jackson's Stephen character in Django Unchained to Black Republicans.

Morris praised the film and Jackson's performance, saying that "his vision of depraved loyalty and bombastic jive cuts right past the obvious association with Uncle Tom. The movie is too modern for what Jackson is doing to be limited to 1853. He's conjuring the house Negro, yes, but playing him as though he were Clarence Thomas or Alan Keyes or Herman Cain or Michael Steele, men whom some black people find embarrassing."

Needless to say, White conservative pundits are already having a fit over Morris' review. But so far, as yet, no comment from any of the four people mentioned or from any Black Republican for that matter.
