I had no problem with the n-word being used as much as it was. At least half the time it was Sam Jackson using it anyway. I agree, it was a more correct portrayal of how things were, along with the violence against slaves. Actually, I was undecided about the movie, until I heard that hypocrite Spike Lee complained about it. I was 1 of about 6 or 7 white people in the theater full of black people watching it. I wasn't uncomfortable at any time, and even laughed just as much as they did, especially at the scene with the eye holes in the bags. That's another thing about the movie, it was very funny. The 2 actors portraying the main characters did really well, and even though Leo DiCaprio did a hell of a job as a vicious Southern plantation owner, my favorite was still Don Johnson's "Big Daddy." I honestly was waiting for Philip Michael Thomas to walk out of his house as his head house slave. I would have laughed my ass off. For those too young, that was a Miami Vice reference.
