Books with subliminal or undercover racism.

Which books have you read have underlying tones of racism?
I'm asking this because I did a class on hidden agendas in books and I'm interested if anyone has come across any? Like you were reading a book and thought Hold the hell up? This fool is.........
The books premise isn't race though. Because obviously those books would deal with racism overtly.

Oh, yeah, Tons. Right off hand I can think of a couple of Stephen King books, I think it was in either Rose Madder or Gerald's Game one of the characters recalls a phrase that's something like, "Work left to _________ doesn't get done."
And in Misery, the novel, Annie Wilkes was a racist, although that didn't really have anything to do with the plot line and it was ignored totally in the movie version.
A lot of Octavia Butler books have racist characters, such as Mind of My Mind and the Parable novels.(I'm omitting Kindred because the book is ABOUT race and racism).
I'm sure I could recall a couple [dozen] more examples.

i would say 'uncle remus- brer rabbit and da tar baby'.. Extreme racial overtones and undertones. Rabbit symbolizes white folks and tar baby symbolizes black folk. Rabbit beats tar baby cuz he no answer and just laying around all lazy..But tar baby wins cuz the more brer rabbit fights the more he gets covered in tar.til he wore out. rabbit trying to keep the tar baby down but eventually the tar baby will rules over the brer rabbits ....
