The 50 Most Racist Movies

21. Heart Condition (1990)

Director: James D. Parriott
Stars: Bob Hoskins, Denzel Washington, Chloe Webb, Roger E. Mosley, Ja'net Dubois, Alan Rachins

A racist white cop (Bob Hoskins) inherits the heart of the black "lawyer" (Denzel Washington) who was banging his ex-wife before he was gunned down in a drive-by shooting. Denzel's character isn't a pimp—no, because that'd be racist—but his chick is an escort, he runs from cops with crack, and he has $200K stashed in a pipe in the back of a bowling alley. Oh, and he's unaware that he's a dad. A Spike Lee Joint, this is not.
