Do I think he is? Yes. But where do we draw the line between racist caricature and simple cultural stereotype? Can he be salvaged? Should he be more like the 52 version and drop the more Chinese elements altogether?
Why is Egg Fu considered racist?
Dammit hasn't the world put eggs through enough without this constant bigoted stereotype constantly thrown in their face You people should be ashamed of yourself for not condemning this character, the creators, and DC comics. Shame on you.
Now excuse me while I go make a boiled egg.
I have been thinking what if the racism does become part of his character. An egg fu that is reminds of the past sins. Of course this could be too risky and make people very uncomfortable.
What if he does that start-off with promoting Anti-American then later on it makes it that it promotes Aniti-Thimyscira/Amazon. This has to be a short time villain thou. Maybe one of the Egg Fus does it. It promotes two countries to go war with each other by making them prejudice.
Making it look like a racist stereotype again may be too much. This is already walking the line of being offensive.
