Hitting The Streets To See If A New Action Figure Really "Makes a Mockery Of Slavery"

Django Unchained has action figures. Hardly unsurprising, given nearly everything gets an action figure these days, but what's topical about Django's are that Al Sharpton's "National Action Network" has called for a nationwide boycott of the toys.

Why? Because "The movie is for adults, but these are action figures that appeal to children. We don't want other individuals to utilize them for their entertainment, to make a mockery of slavery."


A fundamental mistake, then, seeing as these are for adults, but hey, let's run with it and watch this video from Screen Junkies, where one of the figures is taken down to South Central LA to see whether it's really "appropriate".

It's not exactly science, sure, but don't let that stop you.
