TARANTINO: THERE IS MODERN SLAVERY
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Quentin Tarantino, who delves into Deep South history in his revenge saga "Django Unchained," says slavery continues in the United States more than a century after the Civil War. It has just taken on a different form.
"If you go to Malaysia, there's sexual slavery going on in places like that, but I'm more concerned about the slavery that is going on in America," Tarantino said backstage at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards. "The drug laws that have put so many black males in jail that wouldn't have existed in the '70s, that is slavery. It is just straight up slavery as far as I'm concerned."
Tarantino won the screenplay award at the Globes for "Django."
