The Blaxploitation Films (59 pics)

Posted by djkirsh in Pictures   5 Jan 2011   / 7732 views

These are some movie posters of blaxploitation films. These kinds of movies were popular in the US in the early 1970s. They were made to attract an urban black audience. The word blaxploitation is a combination of the words black and exploitation. They were the first movies to star mainly black actors and to feature soundtracks. Some say they gave black actors work, others claimed they exploited them.

I really don't see any exploitation. Being intentionally tautological now, builders build, workers work and actors act. Now, I can't see a black actor playing an white guy, so I can only assume he's supposed to play a black guy (duuuuh). Can't really see the upset other than the obvious poor quality of the movies, though I can safely assume we're not dealing with a bunch of black Robert De Niro's.
How can you possibly exploit someone by giving a job that perfectly fits their background and training? Are the employers to be despised just for eventually making a profit out of these shit movies? Maybe, but it doesn't have anything to do with the colour of the actors imo.
