One of the things that I really appreciated about Django was the German abolitionist... as a Jewish person, I really didn't want to see "Inglorious Basterds" but then when I did see it, I loved it and I think that "Django" is a kind of follow up to that movie, (which is a kind of historical retribution for WW2 movie stereotypes (including Spielberg's in "Schindler's List") about Jews being victims) -- and here he in a way is ALSO undoing a kind of stereotype of German racism - to use the German abolitionist figure.

Interesting that both films have their kind of Spielberg analog -- I really appreciated some of "Lincoln" but couln't stand the 'grateful negro' stereotypes.
