So, WotC debuted the new Harkon Lukas and there were the predictable, heart-rending cries of "You ruined my childhood by making him black!"

Here's my problem:

A manipulative, black minstrel who dresses like a pimp??? And is literally a monster inside?

I'm not sure if this is just incredibly stereotyped, or actually racist.
