Bang The Table: Beasts vs. Django [VIDEO]

    At this year’s Academy Awards, Benh Zeitlin’s “Beasts of The Southern Wild” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” are both up for Best Picture.

    These two films, which showcase two different Black experiences, were directed by white men. That wouldn’t have been the case 10 years ago and there’s nothing wrong with that. For me, it’s not about the messenger it’s about the message.

    However, the message in “Django Unchained” was a lot easier for me to digest than the message being expressed in “Beasts of the Southern Wild.”

    Take a look at my newest installment of Bang The Table and tell me if you agree.  Are you #teamDjango or #teamhushpuppy. Tweet me @smokey
