List Rules unintentionally racist

Hollywood has a reputation for being a liberal bastion of political correctness. But as these appalling movies show, it wasn't always so. It could be argued that they were simply products of their outdated times, but even then, one would think the line would be drawn somewhere. These movies are not to be taken seriously. Hell, some of them are even alright though. But they're all just a little bit racist.
