That reminded me of The Pink Panther (already mentioned by someone). Not sure which film it was but Peter Seller's character Inspector Clouseau (sory, Chief Inspector) says "My little yellow friend", referring to his Japanese manservant Kato!

An example from a TV show that springs to mind is the episode The Germans from Fawlty Towers . Theres a piece of dialogue between Basil Fawlty and the Major about Indians and West Indians. Suffice to say the word "Ni---rs" was used. This would be unthinkable now.
