Lights, Camera, N-Word, Action Figures!!!
First, Quentin Tarantino promoted Django Unchained as a ‘love story’. Then, the slavery-based film grossed $77.8 million — as movie goers were exposed to the N-word 109 times. Now, the film directer is cashing in for a second time over his further exploitation of African American slavery, green lighting his Django Unchained cast to be peddled as action figures. The nerve of this guy!
Here’s what’s being reported by The Daily Beast:
“Last fall, the National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc. in tandem with the Weinstein Company, announced a full line of consumer products based on characters from the movie.
First up are pose-able eight-inch action figures with tailored clothing, weaponry, and accessories in the likeness of characters played by Foxx, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Leonardo DiCaprio, James Remar and Christoph Waltz.
The dolls are currently on sale via Amazon.com. No one will go on record to discuss the action figures, which can easily be viewed as highly offensive. But it is unlikely that any outcry would make Tarantino rethink making slave masters and slaves toys for children to play with — he did, after all, go out of his way to make the abuse and degradation of African slaves for profit funny.”
Quentin Tarantino seems to fail to realize – or simply not care – that blacks have yet to be granted any sort of reparation for their holocaust, by continuing to exploit American slavery with this latest shameful production of the film director’s biggest movie ever. To be sure, every other race degraded – other than blacks – have been presented with some sort of retribution for their pain. That’s why assholes like Quentin Tarantino and Steven Spielberg need to go sit the fuck down and stick to making Nazi films. Don’t believe me.. Ask Professor Eric Michael Dyson.
Oh, and did I tell you that Leonardo DiCaprio is known to have long been a collector of slave dolls? Just sayin’…
