casting call: "very stereotypical horrible asian driver"

Oh boy. Got this casting call sent my way for a television pilot entitled Crooked Cop, looking for a "very stereotypical" Asian Man. That's a quote. It specifically states they're looking for a "very stereotypical timid (and horrible) Asian driver." I have no idea what this is about, but it does not look good:
Casting Notice

Project Name: Crooked Cop
Project Type: Pilot
Rate/Compensation: copy/credit

Asian Man

Role Type

Male / 25 to 45 / Asian

very "stereotypical" timid (and horrible) Asian driver. great improv skills required, karate skills a plus (not required).
I can't much more information about this (I didn't look very hard), but I can't imagine a situation in which a role calling for a stereotypically timid and horrible Asian driver with optional karate skills would signal a great day for Asian media representation.
