So why did they cast a white guy in Talons of Weng Chang?
Would a real Chinese ever have looked as scary-"Chinese" as that uncanny dude did? I think he put some of the stuff in his face in-universe, picked Mr. Sin as the puppet's name, to make it all scary cool, to sell tickets. Plus they did a joke about prejudice, with the gun, even if it's easy to read too much into it.
