I absolutely love Gunn, but I agree that the writers had a lot of problems with the character. As a black woman, it especially bothers me how blatantly they made use of multiple racist tropes and stereotypes. The season 2 episode ''The Thin Dead Line'' is one of the more problematic examples of the show. Don't even get me started.
Agreed. Joss wanted a black, male character...but the writers didn't exactly know how to portray one. So they fell back on the hood rat stereotype, especially when it came to Gunn's old gang.
