Nicholas Mayne's insight:

I believe this is an example of Blaxploitation simply because of the plot of the movie. It portrays the antagonist as "The Man", which is a term which is used for the White government. "The Man" floods the ghetto with "malt liquor" which is supposedly a staple drink of black americans. This all just seems to me to have racist undertones and can be seen as Blaxsploitation.
