Butterfly McQueen, as Prissy, is often cited as a character presented in a racist context, but that seems to be more because of McQueen's unique way of speaking and the fact that her character tells some "stories" during the film which end up not being true and potentially causing danger to some main characters.
Unlike most of the things in the movie, the cruelty directed at her character didn't seem to serve a lot of purpose for the story and got jarring to watch.
I'm still giving it a relatively low rating for the time being (at the end of the day, there's no getting around the pro-Confederacy vibe of the film and I'm not sure it really earns its four-hour running time), but I'm willing to accept that it might grow on me a bit.
