I still do not agree. From a racial perspective, naming a Chinese villain mandarin is not offensive. It would only be so if it were named after a stereotype or something. Like if Ra's al Ghul (which translates to demon's head) had an alias of like, 'Building Bomber' or something, and if mandarin had an alias like 'Dog Eater'.

it's kinda corny but you get the point
