* 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, [[WaltDisney Disney]]'s ''SongOfTheSouth'', and the history of racist portrayals of African Americans in Hollywood films.

* ShownTheirWork: Ralph not only did his research for this movie, many African-American viewers remarked that they couldn't believe that this was written and directed by a white guy, as much of it rang true for them in its portrayal of how blacks have been treated both in the United States and by the film industry.

* ShownTheirWork: Ralph not only Baskhi did his own research for this movie, many the film by walking through New York City with a tape recorder and interviewing Black pedestrians by asking "What is it like to be Black in America?" Many African-American viewers later remarked that they couldn't believe that this was written and directed by a white guy, as much of it rang true for them in its portrayal of how blacks have been treated both in the United States and by the film industry.
