Regarding the stereotype thing, why assume that anything out of Gigi's mouth is typical? She seems to have been raised in total isolation and fed a line of complete crap.

Also, Sunnydale had far more depictions of minorities than you're giving them credit for. I started jotting down their appearances when I re-watched episodes. Over 90 per cent of episodes show minority extras and about sixty per cent have them in speaking parts (granted, often consisting of only a few lines). They're victims, vamps and regular citizens, from garbage men and bouncers to cops and teachers. Blacks are most represented, but Asians are there too. I can only remember a couple of Hispanics, though, which would be the show's most egregious misrepresentation. Although it's not hard to find towns that are primarily white still.
