I mean, Ricardo Montalban as Khan can be forgiven, because let's face it, it was the 1960s. It was six years prior that saw Mickey Rooney and his ground-breaking, politically-correct, performance of Mr. Yunioshi in Breakfast at Tiffany's. At least Montalban looked vaguely the part, and had appropriate costuming. It's frickin' 2013, and we can't get an Indian actor to play an Indian character?
What and have a minority be portrayed as the villain? People with dark skin are never evil, only white people.
To the PC Reeducation Camp for you!
Yea it is 2013 and good luck showing anyone other than a white person as the villain in a film. Someone, somewhere will make a huge stink about it if you dare show some other ethnicity as the bad guy. Just a little over a decade ago we saw the Palestinian Terrorists from Tom Clancy's "The Sum of all Fears" turned in to white European affluent corporate Nazis for the film because an "activist" group who shall not be named threatened protests against the film makers. No producer, writer or directer wants to risk getting branded a racist today.
Sadly this is the reality now. Be glad we don't have group libel in America.
My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.
