Jessica's right, it's now rated R but was originally "Rated X by an
all-white jury" (the tag line).

Well as the distributors of THE TIN DRUM which as far as I know was the
only
OTHER film that encountered this, I am VERY familiar with the situation
SWEET, SWEETBACK'S BADASS SONG has an OFFICIAL R rating from the MPAA
( though it originally may have had an X). It has been WIDELY available
