"Django Unchained" is an epic mash-up of genres, most notably the Spaghetti Westerns like the ones Clint Eastwood used to make and blaxploitation films featuring black heroes getting retribution on their white oppressors. It's a perfect way for Quentin Tarantino to allow slaves to get revenge on their brutal masters in the pre Civil War south - the way he had Jews taking vengeance against the Nazis with "Inglourious Basterds."
Call it disrespectful if you'd like. That's what Tarantino does best.
