Minister Farrakhan on “Django Unchained”: ‘…It’s Preparation for Race War’

farrakhanboyce

In a very candid interview with Dr. Boyce Watkins, Nation of Islam leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan, shared his thoughts about Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. He also revealed the greatest attribute of leadership. Amongst many thoughts Min. Farrakhan had about Django Unchained, one very interesting thought he shared was that he believes the film could serve as preparation for race war.

An abridged transcript of the interview is below:

On Jamie Foxx’s performance in “Django Unchained”:

Black people could sit there and remember his words ‘I am one in ten thousand.’ He played his part. And when they asked him about the word “nigg*r” that was used so much — I think about 110 times — he said “Well, you know, I had a chance to work off my frustration.” He was killing all these white folk. Well, how does a white person see that? How do white people who feel the guilt of what their fathers have done to us, how do they feel? Do you think that they don’t think that if black folk had a chance to do to them what they had done to us — that’s what the movie is saying — that one out of ten thousand will be like that and maybe more. So to me, I loved his part. He played it well. Samuel Jackson, he played his part well. I mean if I were a Tom sitting in the theater — I mean he played Tom to the max — so, a lightweight Tom would want to get out of being a Tom just looking at the way he played Uncle Tom. DiCaprio, he played the white man jammed up.”

Dr. Boyce Watkins says that, during the film, he had similar observations to those noted by Farrakhan.  Dr. Watkins says that the very direct nature by which Django went about getting revenge or the undeniable harms suffered by himself and his people was the kind of on-screen portrayal that would make a lot of people nervous.  He also says that the tense political climate in the United States means that this film could have an impact far beyond that which was intended by those who made the film.

“Notice that Django deliberately sorted good and evil by skin color, excluding the house negro,” says Dr. Watkins.  ”Also, nearly every white person in the film, excluding the German, was portrayed as being evil, dim-witted and deserving of d***h.  If a black man had made this film, it wouldn’t have been viewed and accepted by so many people.  The other sad truth about slavery is that the impact of 400 years of oppression lie all around us, and things have yet to be made right.”

Dr. Watkins is glad that the film was made, and wrote an article about why he enjoyed it.  But both Watkins and Farrakhan agree that the film could spark reactions in both black and white communities that could heighten unresolved racial tension.

    I haven’t read all the comments but I will in the morning..time for sleep. But what I don’t get, just from a glance, is what is the big big deal about race…black/white.. for the love of Pete…the first woman off the boat, the slave ship from Africa was raped…as were so many other enslaved women from then on…so most african americans are really european african americans. throw in some native american ( we all love to claim that)…and also so many folks (sadly) felt it best to “pass” (for white)…that many so -called “white folks” don’t even realize that they have african b***d running thru their veins just from a few generations ago. I am just tired of it…the skin/race thing. and I think all of our kids are too! Just sayin’.

    Hollywood is jewish, and an opportunist like Tarantino is
    just doing his masters bidding. The jewish/Marxist elite
    agitate our community for the sole purpose of destabilizing
    America. I am convinced that if it were not
    for them, race relations would be much better today.

    Minister Farrahkhan told us 4 years ago, in an interview in TV ONE with the host of “One on One”, can’t call her name right now,..that they may not be able to easily get to Obama, but for us to expect them to be shooting down the little vulnerable black boys on the streets!! Thatks what they are doing to and seemingly about to get away with it. Even most of the black on black killings are over the white man’s dope. They may not be always the ones that pull the trigger,..but you can bet a dollar on this, they are at the bottom of it,…if the “white-established LEGAL system” really cared to get to the bottom of it. I mean all the way down to the “bottom”,….but everybody “way down” at the bottom are really at the TOP and are getting “paid”, so they don’t want to “BUST” that “dope-money coffer”!!! So they sit back and say,…it was a drug deal gone bad,…those bad boys ought to be ashamed of themselves selling that dope,…killing each other,…”dope pushers”!!! Well, I ask this,…who’s dope are they selling?? Now they have the gall to try to put us down,…and chalk it up to “black on black crime”!! When as I see it,…the biggest “GUN” that has been put in our communities is that whiteman’s dope!! They are killing us and even many of their own!! Greedy self-serving hypocrites!! Be afraid,…I don’t feel one bit sorry for them!! THERE!!! Yes, I said it!!

    Well I say “Que Sera, Sera,….whatever will be, will be”,…and that is what itks going to be,….period. KARMA will be!! Now, after all of the evil things they have done to us and our families,…and are still doing it to many of us right today,…they have the nerve to be offended (nervous) at the very idea of the “BIG PAYBACK”. KARMA is going to happen one way or the other!! What goes around, comes around. I was taught that a long time ago. I was taught that I should treat people the way I wanted to be treated. Evidently, that was how all of those old “Diiecratl christians” wanted to be treated.

    Farrakhan should not have used the phrase “race war.” Truth is, blacks wouldn’t stand a chance under such circumstances. It would simply be a g******e against black people. Let’s not spread false hope Minister Farrakhan.

      I don’t know about that. We do have some allies that might think it worth their while to jump in on the black side against the white man. We are not the only ones that have been oppressed. Now how many Chinese, East Indians and Latinos are there? The Chinese in particular would leap at the chance to vanquish whitey. LOL. But seriously, race war is crazy. Who needs that?

    wow you waiting for someone to come and save your sorry a*s. just like a negro. yes the white blond hair blue eye Jesus will come and save you when he couldn’t even save himself on a so called cross, an event that never happened. That same Jesus yes the white man god who helped his so called chosen people to bank roll slavery, yes keep waiting fool. Wake up!
    he is not coming. If he was coming. it would have been when his children was mistreating our ancestors why didn’t he come then, why didn’t he come to put a stop to all this suffering. Here is something for you negro’s When a people change what is in their hearts the Most high and our ancestors will help us change our condition. Give the white man his religion, his god, his lifestyle, his fake hair, his bleaching cream, his language, his stereo type of us give him back all his c**p. I was created in the image and likeness of a God, if so then that God would have to have been black of African origin. Black, yes thick lips, kingly hair, and a b**t to match. Now you put that in your pipe and smoke that negro.

    Another thing, when “black” folk gone ask themselves; why do we call and describe our nationality by a color crayon we are not? Every name we’ve been known by was given to us by our enslavers. At least n***a is the mis spelling and mis pronuciation of a bro in the bible named Niger. That’s where the gentile got that from. But all the proverbs and bywords given to us including Koon, porch monkey, Sambo, boy, colored, n****r, African American, black. The Most High said we would be called all types of proverbs and bywords. Study and search out your true nationality people according to the bible. Don’t you know we are the same people spoken about in the scriptures back then. We are descendants of that people. people think the Most High ain’t call this people out today and that the bible not speaking about today and the future. Folks better recognize and start seeking true knowledge for their own salvations sake. Go to YouTube channel AuChaYah or OSOAIC to learn the truth folks

The Most High God told us all in Dueteronomy 28:68 that no man was going to free us from our captivity He put us in. He the only one that’s going to free His people. So, while y’all stupid a*s n****z seeking to k**l yall self, I’m waiting on the Most Highs return which is going to be soon but after y’all are slaughtered by the gentile race for trying to overcome their rulership when their time isn’t fulfilled yet.

Which give the military the right to come into your home and seize your weapons, implemented by your first black president Bill Clinton’s ban on assault rifles….ever since this bill was put into law. Things have been happening as to put into action martial law.school shooting, gang violence, and movies.

    You all talking about the movie was about slavery are delusional. The movie was about a slave turned bounty hunter that went back to rescue his wife from a slave owner. If you are going to act like they didn’t use degrading language in the antebellum south in those times (h**l they do it now) then you are sadly mistaken. Take your fight to issues that exist in the real world right now and stop bashing a make believe hollywood movie. It’s not that serious but the murders in our communities by our very own black folk are. No one seems to be concerned with plot and cast of characters that seem to be played over and over across urban America now do they?

    To everyone, it has been a race war. It has simply been one sided. They’ve killed us in record numbers, locked up over half of our warriors, retrained the thinking of our women, and has taught our children too be nothing but v*****t. Most of us are to busy debating each other over a movie, instead of using this same energy to fight capital hill about rights for us as a people. Less talk, more action, or please just shut up…
