BTW, On the subject of stereotypes, the character played by Morgan Freeman in one of my favorite films, Driving Miss Daisy, could also be called a stereotype, but it was played with such skill that it was not offensive. And it may have also served to introduce a generation of young people to a character like no one they had ever met in life. Likewise, and in one of the best performances ever given by a black actor the terrifically talented actor Rupert Crosse gave what should have been an academy award winning effort in another favorite film The Reivers. He was hilarious, but he also produced a layered performance that touches the viewer, and shows the many facets of humanity that exist in all of us, of any color. So, you have your place, and you were talented.

No one can deny you your place in the history of American cinema. You created a character that, while controversial to some, was the perfect embodiment of a "type" of person that was well known, and understood at the time. Like the Amos and Andy characters that were once so popular and are now banned because they depicted stereotypes, the talent of the actors who portrayed those characters should not be diminished, or denigrated. Acting is curious business. Always has been. But you made a handsome living with your talent, and achieved a level of fame many actors never know. You were a talented fellow. RIP
