0 Everything I have read so far about Django Unchained

I'm still digesting my thoughts about this movie so I lack a concrete opinion although I will offer that the more I reflect, the more my comfort with this film erodes into an open disdain for Django Unchained and the film Tarantino constructed.  While I am still allowing the thoughts to percolate, I am compiling links to all the pieces I have read -- or that I intend to read -- about Django Unchained.  Frankly, another Facebook status from someone who has not critically examined their own complicity in the institution of slavery and the trickle-down of oppression and privilege will send me over the edge because, let's be real now, it isn't just "entertainment" or some song-and-dance for you, unnamed person, to laugh at.

Looking at my tabs, I have 15+ links to share.  I'm going to try to group them by source/outlet.  Hopefully that makes it easier to sort and read through.
