* RayOfHopeEnding: The film ends with slavery still prevalent in America. But [[spoiler:the One Drop scandal, which led to the Fauntroy family patriarch eating his gun, seems to have people questioning the authenticity of the whole program, not to mention noticing how slavery is taking a toll on the CSA economy. Actually the very fact that the ideals of slavery are so vigorously defended subtly hints that they aren't taken for granted by the people any more]].

** A tongue-in-cheek one: even in CSA's slave-obsessed society, pornography still tops slave trade as the most profitable business.

* NotSoDifferent: Measures against the Chinese and Native Americans undertaken by Confederacy inthe 19th century are disturbingly similar to those implemented by the Union in the real life. Post-World War II "anti-abolitionism" extremely resembles [=McCarthyism=] - what, with ''I Married an Abolitionist'' film being an obvious ShoutOut to (admittedly poor-received and subsequently renamed) ''I Married A Communist'' (filmed in 1949). One scene in the film is a news clip about a football game. The Washington Indians (in real life, the ''Redskins'') are playing the New York Niggers (the real-life Giants). A disclaimer at the end of the film also points out that the racist products advertised were real, and that slave imagery was still used to sell products such as Uncle Ben's rice and Aunt Jemima syrup. Highlights the racist undertones of modern society.
