    Tarantino is now selling slave action figures from the movie, including slave characters “Django” (Jamie Foxx) and “Stephen” (Samuel L. Jackson).

    Eight inch action figures have been manufactured of the characters played by Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Leonardo DiCaprio, James Remar
    and Christoph Waltz.


    The figurines are now on sale at Amazon.

    Addy Walker®

    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1864

    An inspirational side of the Civil War era comes to life in the courageous story of Addy Walker. Along with her mother, Addy is escaping slavery to find her father and brother, who’ve been sold away. Once Addy arrives in Philadelphia, she hopes that her family will be together again soon—and discovers that freedom isn’t always fair.

    What they didn't show was the pistol that is hidden in her rucksack.

    TARANTINO: “I went to a mostly black school … at different points in my life I was raised by black people, raised in black homes … kind of the United Nations aspect that my mom’s house was in the early ’70s. So black culture was my culture growing up.”
    GROSS: “Your mom had a United Nations kind of home?”
    TARANTINO: “Yeah, it was almost like a sitcom, the way we lived in the 70s. Because she was in her 20s, she was hot, alright, she was a hot white girl and her best friend named Jackie was a hot black girl and her other best friend, Lillian, was a hot Mexican girl. And they lived in this swinging singles apartment with me.
    “It was the ’70s, and I was living with these three hip single ladies, all always going out on dates all the time, dating football players and basketball players …”
    GROSS: “Professional ones?”
    TARANTINO: “Oh yeah, my mom, she dated Wilt Chamberlain.”
    GROSS: “Nooo …” (both laugh).
    Awesome. Hey, it was the ’70s, it was Los Angeles, so the question should have been who didn’t date Wilt Chamberlain?
    TARANTINO: “[My mother's] boyfriends would come over, and they’d … take me to blaxploitation movies, trying to, you know, get me to like them and buy me footballs and stuff, and … my mom and her friends would take me to cool bars and stuff, where they’d be playing cool, live rhythm-and-blues music … and I’d be drinking Shirley Temples — I think I called them James Bond because I didn’t like the name Shirley Temples — and eat Mexican food … while Jimmy Soul and a cool band would be, you know, playing in some lava lounge-y kind of ’70s cocktail lounge. It was really cool. It made me grow up in a real big way. When I would hang around with kids I’d think they were really childish. I used to hang around with really groovy adults.”

    This is an example of the duplicity I was talking about in another thread.

    The person who often speaks out about one thing is often guilty of the same.

    This is why, and I told him about this before, if you gonna bring dirt here from elsewhere at least have the brains and decency to not use the same screen name or alias.
