* BitingTheHandHumor: The film has a scathingly satirical portrayal of the Mafia, painting them as brutal thugs with monstrous delusions of grander. The movie's original distributor was the infamous Bryanston Distributing Company, which was run by Italian mobster Anthony "Big Tony" Peraino.

* TakeThat: Creator/RalphBakshi hates TheMafia and the film ''Film/TheGodfather''. There's a ''massive'' TakeThat towards ''The Godfather'' in this movie, and the Mafia is generally portrayed negatively here and in ''WesternAnimation/HeavyTraffic''. Also, this entire film is a TakeThat towards the {{Blaxploitation}} genre, [[Creator/WaltDisney Disney]]'s ''Disney/SongOfTheSouth'', and the history of racist portrayals of African Americans in Hollywood films.
** Savior being a revolutionary who loudly proclaims the virtues of a black uprising solely so he can con believers out of their money [[{{Hypocrite}} while being firmly in the pockets of a white businessman]] is a double whammy for corrupt evangelists in general (who were all over TV in the late 70's/early 80's) and specifically for black community leaders who sold out the civil rights movement for their own personal gain.

* CampGay: All of the Godfather's sons, except Sonny.
* ColorMeBlack: In one scene a racist, homophobic, and corrupt cop on the mob's payroll is drugged by Brother Rabbit in an attempt to take out the mafia. When he wakes up, he's covered in blackface and wearing a dress. Still tripping off acid, he freaks out believing he has actually become a gay black man and begins firing his pistol randomly until a pair of police officers gun him down because they're as racist and corrupt as he is and confuse him for an ''actual'' black man.
