No, no he didn't.

He never said he wrote the plot, he just pitched the idea to use a slave theme for his video.

Tarantino said he had the idea earlier but he also confirms most of Kanye West's statement. Saying he had the idea earlier is not something anyone can prove or disprove however.

I'm not defending Kanye West. Dumb thing to try to take credit for personally, especially since the Django character was based on the earlier Mandingo movies from the 70s and Tarantino made his career by reviving Blaxploitation.


SophisticatedVagrant t1_j1pk2ip wrote

> Tarantino made his career by reviving Blaxploitation.

What? Tarantino made his name with Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction long before he did Jackie Brown.


Gary_Vigoda t1_j1pktt7 wrote

Reservoir Dogs isn't blaxploitation but True Romance and Pulp Fiction both rely on the stereotypes. Sam Jackson and Gary Oldman specifically. Blaxploitation is aimed at white youth consumers who love the urban image. Jackie Brown was just a blatant blaxploitation movie after people forgot why they were criticized in the past.


danteheehaw t1_j1pu2mg wrote

Blackspoitation movies were made by black people because black people kept getting shut out of hollywood. When they ended up becoming popular hollywood realized easy cheap movies aimed at black people were very profitable. They amped up the "exploitation" as time went on in typical fashion of movies trying to one up one another. Then like a lot of x-sploitation genres they died off as the themes of the genre naturally found there way into other films or avenues without being over the top. Occasionally a new one springs up that gains some traction.


Gary_Vigoda t1_j1pwmg7 wrote

Mario Van Peebles started the genre in the early 70s as a serious black film maker but Hollywood appropriated the genre to sell a dumbed down superficial version to white consumers who love all things 'black'.

This song is almost 100 years old.

White American youth were stuck going to church on Sunday, praying nightly, and being told pretty much everything fun is 'sinful'.

Meanwhile, 'black' people were partying, smoking weed, getting drunk, having sex, and making good music.

Race records in the past were made by black artists then appropriated by the music industry who sold it to white kids who loved it and hated their parents, the church, their teachers, etc...

They turned anti-establishment and became rebel Hipsters.

Hollywood has been exploiting black people since Vaudeville & Minstrel shows. This was fairly common knowledge until the early 90s to be honest.


Jonsj t1_j1qhtrj wrote

I still don't understand how you can use appropriation about art and culture inspiring and developing off each other.

All artist, all culture is based on something else, usually inspired or formed by society around the artist. Do you suggest we fine comb all culture and artistic expression, lock it down and then form a committee shutting down anything that can be found anywhere else? We also have to find the earliest expression of that art form and make sure they keep the rights to make anything in that expression and everything else is banned.

Cement kirjoitetaa suomeksi "sementti" joten meni ajattelematta sen enempää suomi ja englanti sekaisin koska c ja s kuulostaa pehmeänä lausuttuna melko samalta. Luulis kuitenki asiayhteydestä ymmärtänvän mitä tuolla tarkoitettiin.

Everything you guys watch is about race. Even this stupid ass post is about a slave movie. I don't think it's me that has the race problem.

That's literally what they're saying. That he fucked his credibility before this and won't be taken seriously if he sues.


the_original_Retro t1_j1pqlue wrote

I read it the other way, as "THIS CLAIM fucked his credibility", for this specific theme.

West's credibility was super in question before, that's obvious and no argument there.

But that won't get a lot of weight with respect to a specific court case where he's suing for royalties.

"Your honor, the plaintiff's generally not credible" isn't a starting argument.

But if instead it's "Your honor, we can specifically demonstrate where the plaintiff had made misleading claims about ownership and creation of the concept that is the theme of their frivolous lawsuit" (or however a decent lawyer would put it), suddenly it's really relevant.

When people in the past have sued for a stolen pitch, it’s because they submit a script. If there was a script then yes your Could sue over an idea that was stolen if they read it, then used it and cut you out. However we all know Kanye didn’t write a script and he pitched a slave idea and thinks now he wrote Django.

A case where there's no evidence or the claim would be legally meaningless regardless can usually be thrown out by a judge without ever seeing a jury.

Which is the best way it could work, unless Planet Reality is the name of a supercomputing paper shredder that can stop stupid lawsuits from even being submitted to the legal system.
