Nick Cannon has had enough of those “damn slave movies,” it seems, if the number of exclamation points in his tweet is any indication. Of course there was Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” last year, followed by the current “12 Years a Slave.”
Two movies doesn’t seem to be a glut certainly, so what’s the problem?
Toby? That would likely be the slave name of Kunta Kinte from the 1977 miniseries “Roots.”
That doesn’t really seem to hold too true for “Django,” whose over-the-top violence made some viewers sick and inspired anti-gun zealot Michael Moore to declare the gun violence “hilarious” — as well as reignited some viewers’ desire to “kill white people.”
