Boss Nigger isn't the first blaxploitaiton film, but it embodies all of the aspects of the genre like no other—just look at the incendiary title. Writer-producer and Boss N himself Fred Williamson was defending his racial epithet usage way before rappers were.

Of course, true to the genre's form, Boss is all about reversing the standard. That means the black guy is the lady-killing badass (with an awesome theme too) and—you guessed it—the white dude is the lawless fugitive. He's your atypical cartoonish Caucasian villain, with the Beverly Hillbillies-esque name and the pure hatred for anybody who isn't lily-white. You best believe Boss gets his man.
