People aren't "less than" because they picked cotton. Both my parents did it at one point because that's what was available to them. Having said that, I know nothing about this movie and roles for enslaved people don't seem to allow for much camera time. But I do wish that people would stop acting like enslaved Africans were undignified "pic-a-ninnies" we should be ashamed of.

I just have a feeling that by the end of this film I'm going to be offended.

And I know what scene this is going to be for. Foxx and Waltz will be for sure on the sets. :)

The only time I see HWD specifically requesting natural hair and there's a "cotton pickin" catch to it! HWD, you're too much!
