@turquoise-- You have a point, archetypes are universal.
How many people know that the mammy archetype exists outside of the United States? The mammy archetype, for example, was an important archetype in Turkish cinema from the 1950s to the 1970s. And the archetype had nothing to do with slavery. Africans were not slaves in the Ottoman Empire. They were regular citizens who were sometimes employed to help in the household, as nannies or as cooks. But in Turkish films, the mammy archetype is part of the family. She doesn't only take care of the children, she sits and eats with the household and is together with them at all times. There are even examples when the mammy archetype doesn't do any work and simply resides with the family.
Archetypes have to be universal. They cannot have different meanings in different places. So I also don't feel that the mammy archetype is racist.
