In this clip, the term “blaxploitation” was explored. The term has since been carried over and is used to downplay the successful black films of that era, like Shaft and Superfly. Michael Jai White expressed frustration with the term, stating that it belittles the achievements of black filmmakers. They also discussed the socio-political climate of the ‘blaxploitation’ era, highlighting the mistrust of the police and conspiracy theories that persist today, noting how these themes were prevalent in black films of the time. They criticized the retrospective application of the term ‘blaxploitation’ to the films, which were originally made as serious cinematic endeavors rather than for comedic or shock value.
