Actually, Jack Sparrow is a singular portrayal by Depp (he's basically playing Keith Richards).
The problem with Depp's image has more to do with his other repetitive roles in Tim Burton films. Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka, the Mad Hatter, Barnabas Collins, Ed Wood, even his character in "The Corpse Bride"... they're all the same effeminate, pasty-white, conflicted awkward quiet man-child thing. So it's easy for people to just assume his Tonto is more of the same (either Jack Sparrow and/or the "pasty white quiet awkward guy").
