    'nigger' from this movie would make about as much sense as having everyone in the movie wear Crocs or sport purple spiked Mohawks.  

    You are correct, I fear, that criticism of the movie for using the word is really criticism of the movie for challenging the 21st-century narrative about racism and slavery in America.  In other words, if no one objected to his use of 'nigger', the movie would be a failure.
