Stereotypes in Movies


I would like to add to the list of cartoon/CGI characters that seem to stereotype a race. We have had the black crows in Dumbo that were jivey, groovy black folk from the South. Then there was Jar Jar from the new Star Wars who have been theoried to act like a black southern lady and also an Italian person with that odd speech and accent. I can only confirm that I can see both theories there.

I want to add Doby of Harry Potter. Doesn’t this odd elf creature look like an old poor Indian guy from the streets of India? Like Gandhi himself? Doesn’t talk like one- well maybe a little.

What other stereotypes you remember?
