The episode of Gunsmoke with the Chinese guy. Some of the local thugs tried to run him out of town just for being Chinese. Marshal Dillon rescues him and makes a speech about how anyone is welcome in his town, regardless of ethnicity. It is also later revealed that he doesn't even have a Chinese accent, he just fakes one because racists all over find him easier to deal with if he's a caricature.

I thought these were some pretty forward thinking issues for the 50's.
