Quentin Tarantino, can you hear me?

George Lucas' 2D Afro-American war picture bombed. There are doubts lingering over Django Unchained's script. Might I humbly offer a plot suggestion for Mr Tarantino?

A historian in Oz wondered why then-US Congressman Lyndon B Johnson visited Townsville for three days in 1942. He uncovered a lot of plot:
An Australian historian has uncovered hidden archive documents which reveal that African American troops used machine guns to attack their white officers in a siege on a US base in north Queensland in 1942.
Now this is a WWII African-American story that Tarantino can really sink his ultra-violent revenge fantasies into:
''After some serial abuse by two white US officers, there was several ringleaders and they decided to machine gun the tents of the white officers,'' Mr Holyoak said.
It could even be a double-header feature, with Taika Waititi directing the Battle of Manners Street, NZ's own little mutiny against loud-mouth racist Yank grunts.
