What race is Ming the Merciless?

East Asian Ming the Merciless is “coded as an East Asian character” but was played by the late Swedish actor Max von Sydow in the 1980 film. UK film censors have added a warning about racial stereotypes to Flash Gordon, saying the character of Ming the Merciless is “dubious, if not outright offensive”.Dec 23, 2020
