Elroy: Don't pay any attention to Charlie Chan here.
Referencing the fictional private investigator created by Earl Derr Biggers in 1926. Initially a detective with the Hawaiian police, Chan soon took cases throughout the world. The character moved on to radio, movies, comic strips, and television, and found his greatest success when portrayed by non-Asian actors such as the Swedish Warner Oland. The character, often considered stereotypical and racist, has been the subject of much controversy over the years.
