not saying there's a right or wrong way to approach it either. just opening it up for discussion.
That's nothing compared to he today American audiences don't have problem with black gangster stereotype in film. I read crime books written by white authors boasting with use nigger when there is no need.
If you want avoid a legendary storyteller for what you watch today in films then it's your choice.
I find Kung fu Chinese stereotype in Hollywood offending but its not racist.....
