It's not. But it is a virtue of Django Unchained. Especially in context of the lack of movies showing the horrors of slavery (absolutely absurd on America's part, our reluctance to acknowledge our dark past is embarrassing, among other things). It does better than most, far better, but by QT's admission it still doesn't reflect the true horrors of slavery.
One should see Django Unchained with a mostly black audience. It was the greatest theater experience of 2012 for me, even over the Avengers. So frickin' cathartic.
