Was he racist?
The character Antauri who was also known as "The Black Monkey" and voiced by an African American actor, Kevin Michael Richardson, caught some flack for being a potentially racist sterotype. Though the character was actually the wisest member of the team, no one seemed willing to let the "Black Monkey" thing go as it was viewed as a possible racist slur. In season 3 and on to the end of the series Antauri was changed in both appearance and name to "The Silver Monkey"
