* ''Film/TheHebrewHammer'' [[AffectionateParody lovingly borrows]] many of the tropes seen in these films and throws them in a pot with [[ANiceJewishIndex literally every Jewish stereotype ever]] to serve up the first ever "Jewsploitation" film. In it, our titular hero, a "Certified circumcised [[DoubleEntendre dick]]," is out to stop Santa Claus's evil, antisemitic son from destroying Hanukkah. Accompanying him is his BlackBestFriend, Muhammed Ali Paula Abdul Raheem, of the Kwanzaa Liberation Front who more or less acts as an excuse to play blaxploitation tropes comically straight.

The TropeMaker[=/=]UrExample of this genre is ''Film/SweetSweetbacksBaadasssssSong''. Note that unless indicated, if a movie is mentioned below, it's referring to the original 1970s/1980s version, and not to any subsequent remake under the same name. The Blaxploitation genre hasn't been as common since the 1980s, mainly due to [[UnfortunateImplications concerns from African American civil rights groups]], pushing it toward DeaderThanDisco status.

* ''Film/BossNigger'': A violent western starring Fred Williamson and an incredibly catchy theme song. He made two others, but this takes the cake.
