Quentin Tarantino is arguably one of the best directors of all-time. His resume is flawless. His mindset is sometimes skewed, but that’s what makes him a genius. When he decided to wrestle against the police for their unwarranted attempts to dehumanize the black race, he didn’t stand down.

In a New York rally last month, Tarantino went on a verbal tirade where he demolished cops for their unethical approach to unarmed civilians. “I’m a human being with a conscience,” Tarantino said at the rally. “And when I see murder I cannot stand by. And I have to call the murdered the murdered and I have to call the murderers the murderers.”

In hopes of correcting his words, he spoke to the LA Times and said his words were misinterpreted. “What they’re doing is pretty obvious,” he said of his critics. “Instead of dealing with the incidents of police brutality that those people were bringing up, instead of examining the problem of police brutality in this country, better they single me out. And their message is very clear. It’s to shut me down. It’s to discredit me. It is to intimidate me. It is to shut my mouth, and even more important than that, it is to send a message out to any other prominent person that might feel the need to join that side of the argument.”
