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!
