Quentin Tarantino on ‘Django’: ‘Hollywood didn’t want to deal with’ slavery in films

UPDATE 12/19/12…Due to the Newtown CT tragedy, Django and other movies have been pulled or cancelled from airing.

Tarantinto…“I was always amazed so many Western films could get away with not dealing with slavery at all,” Tarantino said. “Hollywood didn’t want to deal with it because it was too ugly and too messy. But how can you ignore such a huge part of American history when telling a story in that time period? It made no sense.”
