I dont think he's got an issue with black people as its been widely known he had a number of long term relationships with black women.
Besides that, I just dont get the vibe that he's some racist, but simply writes what he feels would be honest dialogue for his characters. Most of which I would say are not the most enlightened persons- nor would it strike me as being true if they were to act all PC and censor themselves.
Hate or discomfort of the use of the word can be debated, but I dont think there should be any vitrol or accusations directed at him without some evidence of his actions or words in his life outside of fictional stories or movies. I just dont think there should be a double standard for an author or director to explore subject matter or taboo areas and words regardless of their race, gender, or whatever. How they conduct themselves in their daily life better dictates their motives and if they actually hold any real prejudices, IMO.
