So the new Ming isn't going to be asian looking because that's "Racist", but it's perfectly acceptable to make him look like an extra from a Nazi movie or an officer serving on a Star Wars Destroyer. What a load of crap.
"I don't think a modern audience will tolerate any hint of racism," Holden said. "Perhaps audiences of the past were shown foreigners as threats and villains, but I think our audience is more mature than that."



Moff Tarkin errr I mean Ming

Of course audiences will stand by racism; they went and saw 300, didn't they?

OMG Pearl Harbor was racist too! It should have been the Nazis attacking.

I was actually thinking more along the lines that all the Persian peoples were coded as queer and/or looked like monsters.

Nothing about the new Ming screams "Merciless." The new ming looks like an extra on Babylon 5.
