Mr. Yunioshi, 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'
Unfortunately, racist and otherwise offensive characters are commonplace in American film. For example, Mr. Yunioshi in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's was an over-the-top racist portrayal of a Japanese man, played by the white actor Mickey Rooney in yellowface. Everything from his buck teeth to his squinty eyes to his accent are extremely awkward to watch nowadays. It's hard to believe that this type of thing was once considered funny!

Uncle Remus, 'Song of the South'
'Song of the South' is an early Disney film that was banned from DVD production due to its offensive and racist material. Uncle Remus is a kindly old African American man who appears to believe that everything in life is hunky-dory, despite the fact that slavery had existed not too long before he told the tale of 'Briar Rabbit and the Tar Baby.'

Rosemary Shanahan, 'Shallow Hal'
This film, which was supposedly intended to spread a positive message about inner beauty, spent most of its running time putting down overweight people everywhere with its crass fat jokes and offensive visual gags. Just like every other film in existence, 'Shallow Hal' perpetuates the idea that thin is good and fat is bad and deserving of mistreatment and bullying.

Mammy and Prissy, 'Gone with the Wind'
In 'Gone with the Wind,' which takes place during the days of slavery in the southern states, depicts the African American house slaves in an extremely stereotypical light. On top of that, they almost seem happy to be slaves! That may have been the case for some house servants during that time period, but the movie glorifies the south in such a way that you might think slavery wasn't such a bad thing after all.

Jar Jar Binks, 'The Phantom Menace'
Jar Jar Binks may not be human and have a certain skin color, but his mannerisms and speech seem to be modeled on stereotypical and racist views of African Americans. Not only is the character completely pointless and annoying, but it's offensive, too!
