Django's story, however cartoonish, is America's story too. It is unique in its courage to confront us with some of the more sordid parts of our history and should be revisited often, like the Exodus, lest we forget, as my family Haggadah says, "how bitter is the lot of one caught in the grip of slavery."
"They say that so-called twelve-bar stuff is the black man's blues and country western of that day was the white man's blues, but there's a very thin line between the two musics. Only difference is the beat, and the bars to some extent, but the stories of happiness, sadness, being lonesome. All that was the same."
