Garrison also revealed racist tendencies in many episodes. In the episode “Chef Goes Nanners”, Mr. Hat, his puppet, was a member of the local Ku Klux Klan, which Mr. Garrison resented and insisted to Chef that he wanted nothing to do with. However, in the later episode “Here Comes the Neighborhood”, he tries to get rid of the “richers” (who were all black) using Klan techniques, such as wearing their robes or burning crosses. Although throughout the episode both Mr. Garrison and the rest of the townsfolk make no reference to the “richers” being black (seemingly oblivious to the fact), in his last line of the episode that his intentions were at least in part racist (“at least we got rid of all those damn ni. . . . . ” [transition to credits]). In the season one episode “An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig” he quotes: “Genetic engineering erases all of God’s mistakes, like German people”. In the season 1 episode “Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo” and the season 7 episode “It’s Christmas in Canada”, he suggests that the town get rid of all the Mexicans, but Mayor McDaniels repeatedly declines to do so. Exactly why he wishes to do this has not yet been explained. These are too examples of the many instances throughout the show’s history where Mr Garrison has expressed contempt for the Mexicans, though in the episode “D-Yikes”, Garrison relies on Mexicans to help him in a plan to thwart Persian Nightclub owners. Despite the fact that he seems to portray racist manners, he sometimes will inform his student Eric Cartman of when the nine-year-old is doing something intolerant or offensive (as seen in “The Snuke”).
