To me it's understandable if they dislike or eveb hate the white man to an extent.

But given the progress of North American society as a whole, and the need of people on our continent as well as across the world to be connected, to be a global community so to speak in order for us to have "success", I can't see sheer hatred and racism existing on a very big, overt scale for too much longer. So I guess my point is this is all kind of a natural part of the process, and that's why it doesn't bother me at all. Time heals all wounds sorta deal. Not a very coherent thought, I dunno, I tried the best I could, I'm hung over as hell, half asleep lol...
I respect that it doesn't bother you, but I thought it was a bit unfair to tell people that they shouldn't/would be wrong to be bothered by it when someone gives as much as they used to get. Despite, to a degree, having a good, tolerable reason for biting back, it's still pretty wrong in principle, IMO.

You gotta hand it to Tarantino though; this movie was guaranteed to succeed. Making enormous profits off racial tension, with minimal risk involved. The black demographic alone was guaranteed to make Tarantino a fortune.

Personally I thought the violence was too cheesy; it threw me off. I also didn't like how there were maybe two white people in the whole movie that weren't racist pieces of ****. Maybe balance it out a little bit?
Yes, I imagine the population was quite evenly split between racists and non-racists...

Eyes open pal, the whites weren't all that nice back then. One of the two main characters was a white non-racist though...!

I just realized that this is the spitting image ending of Heathers, which I loved.
