Not only is it a bad portrayl of African Americans, I don't particularly like the scenes with Jessica Tandy. Especially at the place of worship, I think it was a synagogue. She has this problem with her car being up front, putting on airs I think she calls it. The stereotypical jewish grandmother, as I've seen it growing up Jewish, is someone who backstabs and worries about how they look to others instead of doing what they want. That and the food thing. I have a jewish grandmother and her only fault is being a racist. I don't think, even if it won oscars, that Driving Miss Diasy is a redemmable movie for the messages it is sending, aside from the theme of the movie.
