I was just listening to an interview about Quentin Tarantinos new film Django Unchained. The interviewer mentioned that she was black then asked him why he, a white guy, was the right person to tell this story.
Seemed like kind of a weird question...its not like Peter Jackson is a Hobbit.
Just upon reading the gist of this movie, it seems the slavery is geared toward the type of slavery still going on. Short of suggesting an actual person who has been a slave making the movie the question seems to be tragically errant in the understanding that slavery was/is more than just something that happened at a set time in history to only a select race.
