What does the term "Mandarin" have in common with a pasty faced, suit wearing, rich guy?
Oh,yeah.Dragon tattoos,and generic martial arts moves that are mandated for every character in action movies since the late 90's.
Interesting the same description can be used of many characters in actual Asian produced films. funny thing.
If the Mandarin is racist then almost any character using classic elements of or fitting into their cultural past or present is racist. No different than the British character, the Shining knight IMO.
