Django Dolls Discontinue Due to Black Leaders Crying Racism




Daily Mail reported that after major outrage from advocacy groups like Al Sharpton's National Action Network and Project Islamic Hope, the figurines that resembled the characters from Quentin Tarantino's biggest blockbuster hit Django Unchained has been discontinued and withdrawn from sale.


In combination with the Weinstein Company, the studio that produced the movie, National Entertainment Collectible Assocation (NECA) contributed to the making of the dolls. Before production stopped, they were able to make a thousand of them.


Amazon.com was selling three figures that depicted the freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx), his sold wife Broomhilda (Kerry Wasington), and another slave Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson). They were apart of a series of several characters in the movie.


This marketing venture came to and end after black community leaders expressed their disgust.

Najee Ali, the director of Project Islamic Hope, said these action figures made a mockery of the horrors of slavery and the African American experience. He took it as a blatant slap in the face to his ancestors. The activist added that if dolls for Inglorious Bastards were made the Jewish community would totally dispute it.


On the other side of the issue, NECA and Weinstein's actions weren't meant to offend. According to them, these figurines were only meant to be collectibles.

we black people are really over doing it with this cry for racism this racism that, minor stuff, its so F*CKING annoying. Racism will never die if you keep highlighting it. We make racism comment towards other raciest and they don't make a big deal out of it. (SLAVERY)Forgive but don't forget, let bygons be bygons. if it wasn't for them we wouldn't even exist so part of us should be glad it happen if you don't like it go back to Africa. And i bet the same people we call racist do more for the people in Africa than we do for our own racist. stop complaining like B*tches and be independent men and women, serve your country or something and stop sitting home on your asses waiting for handouts. "Pathetic"

@hottroundz its not private anymore idiot. its on t.v. in hiphop in video games. remember grand theft auto ballad of gay tony? Dont tell me its private i have to turn the t.v. because of ppl who like to disrepect the order of nature. im not religous or think someone is going to a worse place than earth. its sickining and yes sex is for procreating us humans just abuse it and thats the way we are so u cant change it i dont want to either. dont care about white gays. i just want blackmen to find themselves know ourselves before we indulge in greek and roman and u white devils way of living. KNOW THY SELF!

@keepitreal you made some good points but lost all credibility when u mentioned the gay thing. Worried about what others do in their own privacy. So every time u have sex it's for the sole purpose of creating a baby? I doubt it. Closed minded people...smh

Controlled poverty is a weapon whites use. it makes blackmen feel they dont have a chance to make it in life so we commit crimes and get railroad to another form of slavery. we cant make it if whats are controlling our economy. trust me if they cant control our money and make sure we spend money furthering there agenda they will plot sonething else. if u only believe bullets and missles is there only weapons u are a blind fool. learn the power of words, manipulation, deception, and story twisting because they got all you fools believing in an invisible god. wake up young black ppl. before this generation becomes completely lost. think about alot of our youth think its okay to be gay. its another weapon to prevent blackmen from raising strong families. every weapon they deploy seems to work on our a**

@A i will not argue with a white boy who think they understand black struggle. mental slavery runs deeper than u are thinking. willie lynch syndrome was not a short term strategy it was meant to be for generations. unlike whites or any other race we africans have been stripped of our natural traditions and forced to live like heathen europeans. obama is not for unity among blacks he is only furthering the agenda for white supremacy like sucking all natural resources on this earth. U cant understand the mind of a blackman because our natural minds has been tampered with. so take yo white a** somewhere and enjoy the rest of your rrign on top because white heathen time is all most up.

Lmao Y'all don't get it. It's not about the b******* or playing the race card. America is a free enterprise and these n***** mad at the white people profiting from the dolls, meaning profiting off our past struggle and giving nothing back. That's all it's ever about. Black power n*****. Al Sharpton hate rappers too, getting too much money selling raps for white folks (he'll protest degrading lyrics, but gives Diddy a "Triumph Award"?) It's those black "leaders" who are racist themselves. You have to be of racist nature to even want to take on this crusade.
