* AcceptableTargets: White Southern Americans--and, by association, white Americans in general. They're all racist, they have no culture (and wouldn't be able to develop any without black people), and also they're pure evil.

* AcceptableTargets: White Southern Americans--and, by association, white Americans in general. They're Confederate Americans: they're all shown to be various degrees of racist, they have no a rather bland and stagnant culture (and wouldn't be able to develop any without don't admit how much of the vigor their culture ''does'' have originates from their black people), slaves), and also they're basically pure evil.evil. Even the northern whites get castigated for their lukewarm (at best) support for abolition, it being broadly hinted that they might have fared better if they'd rallied more eagerly to it as a cause.



Similarly, this documentary attracts a lot of angry ranting by people who can't grasp the purpose of the documentary and instead focus on [[StopHavingFunGuys all the societal, economic, and political issues]] that would make this film an impossibility in RealLife.
* {{Narm}}: Parts of the Fauntroy jingle that weren't offensive were this. Seriously, when (outside of a cartoon) was the last time anyone vowed to "crush...evildoers"?

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The caption at the end of the film reveals that all of the products that existed were real, and that some products today are still sold using slave imagery, such as Uncle Ben's rice and Aunt Jemima syrup.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Yes, the word "Aryan" (when used to describe a person of Northern European ancestry) ''did'' exist before the Nazis got their mitts on it. In fact, it is used in precisely this context in D. W. Griffith's ''Film/TheBirthOfANation'', which ''The Hunt for Dishonest Abe'' is an obvious CaptainErsatz for.

** Also, the theme to ''Runaway'', a parody of ''Series/{{Cops}}''--which, in an even more entertaining/dastardly nod, sounds suspiciously like "Bad Boys" (the RealSongThemeTune to ''Cops''), but done by a bluegrass band as opposed to a black reggae group.

* SpecialEffectFailure: One of the opening shots is of a now-CSA-branded NASA rocket taking off, edited from actual footage. They did a fine job replacing the "U" with a "C", but the font doesn't match -- the "S" has straight, squared-off sides like Eurostile while the "C" is perfectly round like Helvetica.
