I don't see how Malcolm Weaver playing a Sherpa Henchman could be viewed as racist. Just because he had prosthetic eyelids to look more Asian, so what?

I could certainly see that being objectionable to some. You wouldn't do that now, at any rate.

I don't think they're racist, but people will complain because they want to.

Second attempt at posting.
