They're not my preconceptions. They're stereotypes.
That's sort of the whole point.
Jack's mocking of Roland over Roland's echo, is closer to sounding racist. But I think that's more to do with the Jack voice performance being in a lower register and heing intended to mockingly sound dumd. But within the context of the characters, that's Jack's view of Roland, not of his skin colour.
I would just point out that we're talking about a game where Pandora is inhabited mainly by abandoned, convict labourers, who're pretty feral...... And all of them are White.
