Quite possibly one of the most offensive (yet still hilarious) movies ever made. Mel Brooks, who is probably more well-known these days for being the father of novelist Max Brooks, brings us a western about a black sheriff, a drunken sharpshooter, and corrupt politicians.

David Banner's response to V-Nasty:
"It don't bother me at all. One problem with Hip-Hop is people try to act a certain way and they put it on their sleeve. I don't have to talk about the stuff I do," he explained. "It's funny when people tell these kids to be hood and they don't stay in the hood. They give the kids this mentality of staying in the hood and that shows you what other cultures think about us as Black people and what's important to us and how they try to play us Black men against each other. The sad thing [is if I was to respond], I'[d look like] the big mean Black guy. Regardless of how articulate I am, if I move any kind of way I will always be crucified. Regardless of these Disney and Paramount deals I'm doing, I'll always be looked at in that manner so what I realize that as Black people, we have to stop letting people play our culture like that."
