Yes, it is available on DVD.[edit]

Removing 'and is currently unavailable on DVD.' from article. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wergoheb (talkcontribs) 20:41, 2 February 2007 (UTC).

  • No, it is not officially available on DVD. The distributor on that, Blax Films, is a bootleg outfit running out unauthorized issues of unavailable "blaxploitation" films, like Hit Man and Coonskin. Note that the Amazon page was 'created by a seller'. I do own one of the Blax Films DVDs and, while the quality isn't that bad for a bootleg, it's still no substitute for an authorized release by the copyright owners.

Fair use rationale for Image:NCharley.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:NCharley.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:59, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

This is not a trilogy.[edit]

There is no evidence that "Boss Nigger" is part of this series, other than the presence of the two leading men and the same controversial word in the title. Yet the entries for both this movie and the sequel claim "Boss Nigger" is another sequel. To my mind, this is incorrect. First of all, why is there any mystery behind "Boss'" name when, supposedly, we already know his name is "Charley"? The most obvious discrepancy is in D'Urville Martin's characters. In the "Nigger Charley" movies, he plays a character named "Toby", while in "Boss Nigger", his character's name is "Amos". This needs to either be verified or corrected.

According to Van Peebles, in an interview with Virginie Sélavy:
"VS: After Sweetback, did you want to make more films like that?
Melvin: Yeah, it’s a trilogy, I never had a chance to make the other parts. I made a couple other American films which no one would distribute because it’s too dangerous, no one owns me."
So I agree, the article needs to be updated.

Please ignore my foolishness above. It's about a totally different movie. David in DC (talk) 15:12, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
