Django, in chains: Jesse Williams on Tarantino

"My personal biracial experience growing up on both sides of segregated hoods, suburbs and backcountry taught me a lot about the coded language and arithmetic of racism," writes actor and former history teacher Jesse Williams. "I was often invisible when topics of race arose, the racial adoptee that you spoke honestly in front of." With that personal context, he explores the movie Django in a CNN.com op-ed, and there's a scene by scene analysis in a post on his personal blog. (thanks, meris colby)
