The new Netflix movie Blazing Saddles is a modern-day Western.
But one that flips the script on traditional Hollywood narratives.
The film’s protagonist is Bart (Mel Brooks), a black sheriff in an all-white town where racism runs rampant.
As if that weren’t enough to complicate matters, Bart discovers that his own people have been duped by crooked political leaders into selling out their rights for “40 acres and a mule.”
And things get worse when he finds himself saddled with the job of protecting the very white women who oppress him and his people every day.

*N/A* finally got my Netflix login on here trying to watch that new blazing saddles movie where are all the white women in this film?
Blasted thing keeps buffering every time i log out of it what’s happening you know how much data i’m burning through just waiting for these previews to load up.
But they never do so now when am I going to see Mel Brooks get into some slapstick cowboy shenanigans with John Wayne’s ghost.
Because he died way before Blazing Saddles even came out because why make an old western nowadays anyways.
