Mexicans/Mexico are misrepresented. Most shots of Mexico show only poor villages with no electricity. Many of the Mexican characters are cartel members, gang members, scary silent assassins, or drug dealers.

While it’s not promoted for the most part, more than a bit of the humor revolves around intentional misrepresentation. In the majority of episodes with stereotypes, it is equal-opportunity, but I’m not going to pretend like that’s always the case, while they’ve undone the effects of it the Trans Garrison arc has some pretty ugly messages about trans people and there are probably more instances I'm forgetting.

Japanese guy with a stereotypical accent (S2E11) and depicting a Middle Eastern country as barbaric (S4E6…and unfortunately that one is plot important). In my opinion S1E14 BluesKlok is a decent look into blues and how African-American culture shapes it (if admittedly involving a spoof of the “magical Negro” trope) but even then all three examples I listed involve BIPOC characters voiced by white dudes so yeeeeeah 😬. Also dishonorable mention to a woman in S3E6 that is cis as far as we know but has transphobic coding

Even ignoring the infamous advocacy of restraint, this movie is just plain not good at depicting autism as Music is infantilized to hell and back, and has little to no agency as a character. And autistic people are not even the only victim of this either!

The whole movie depicts India and Indian culture in a variety of gross (in many ways) racist stereotypes. The Thugees themselves didn't exist in real life and were a product of racist colonial paranoia.

Not directly but there are aliens that seem a lot like racist stereotypes. Jar Jar Binks has dreadlock-like ears, speaks in broken English, and is portrayed as stupid, Watto is a short, fat conman with a giant nose who owns slaves, and the Neimodians have almond-shaped eyes, speak in mock Asian accents, and cause a trade blockade. I’m a huge fan of Star Wars but I’m also not convinced by any argument that these parallels are coincidental.

Pretty bad transphobia in the early seasons although they later apologized for it in-universe. Although the show still kind of relies on stereotypes even if in their defense its usually to make fun of the racism of them 1960’s and 70’s action cartoons they’re parodying. Some are a bit harder to defend though

Any episode featuring "natives" can be quite uncomfortable to watch. There's also a very awkward episode featuring a Japanese sailor.

Watto, already seeming a lot like an antisemitic caricature, is redesigned with a beard and a metal kippah for no reason. Jar Jar Binks (black stereotype) returns but only for a few scenes and the Neimodians (Asian stereotype) appear in even less. There are claims that the Tusken Raiders are Native American caricatures (admittedly such accusations are much less common than the aforementioned ones) and this film portrays them as kidnappers who murder Anakin's mother before getting slaughtered in his genocidal act of revenge.
