Boston Globe Movie Critic Compares ‘Django Unchained’ House Negro Character to Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain

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.”

    There
    is a far, far, far, far larger group of Black people who do far more
    material damage to the Black community who BLACK PROGRESSIVES DO NOT
    FIND EMBARRASSING because they are not Conservative than otherwise.

    While references to these Black Republicans brings joy in the heart of Black Progressives – such contrived schemes can’t mask the painful truth about all that is left unmitigated by the people you apparently please you.
