I would doubt it since the last time the showed them they stopped due to protest from the Asian community :(

I forgot to post a message here, but a few days ago TCM showed "Before Dawn", a murder mystery from 1933.  Warner Oland has a big part in the film, playing an Eastern European doctor here in the US.  It's a good movie to watch, and it's interesting to see Oland in a different non-Asian character role.  I've seen this film listed on the TCM schedule before, so it is possibly shown several times a year.  Keep an eye on the schedule for this movie.

TCM also occasionally shows "The Drums of Jeopardy", where Warner Oland plays a sinister non-Asian character.  This is also a good movie to watch, and I will post a message if I see it turn up on the schedule.
