WTF: Boston Globe film critic Wesley Morris is comparing “Django Unchained” character, Stephen, the villainous “House Negro” played by Samuel L. Jackson, to black Republicans in his movie review.
“Samuel L. Jackson plays crusty, waxen Stephen as a vision of depraved loyalty and bombastic jive that 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.”
