Blazing Saddles deserves to be on the list, but not for the reason stated. The racism, no matter how over the top it goes, always makes the racists look like idiots. Only the non racists are shown in a positive light. Although this is funny and appropriate, it is not politically incorrect.
The reason why it belongs on the list, the politically incorrect part, is the plot. Greedy corrupt politicians and hangers on wish to steal the land of private citizens in order to build a railroad, and the towns people fight back. Does anyone think landowners in present day central California would be portrayed positively if they interfered with a high speed rail line?
