A line of action figures taken from the slavery film, ‘Django Unchained’ have hit the market for sale.   The Quentin Tarantino film has been a hit at the box office.  However, there’s a small protest brewing to have these dolls taken off the market.

Najee Ali, director of the advocacy group Project Islamic Hope, plans a news conference Tuesday with other Los Angeles black community leaders calling for the removal of the toys from the market.

Ali called the action figures “a slap in the face of our ancestors.”

“We were outraged,” said Ali, upon learning of the figures. “We feel that it trivializes the horrors of slavery and what African Americans experienced.”  HuffingtonPost
