Is it true that DC realized what a fuck-up they had and thus negating Titans completely? :-D

It's Zechs. He believes people care about Kingsley as Hobgoblin.

From the JLA panel:

Asked about increasing diversity—particularly, "where are the Asians?"—Wallace said that diversity did not have to only mean heroes, but "diverse people." "When you look at the world around them, it's populated by" people of every color and orientation. He added that there would be an Asian hero debuting in "Mr. Terrific."

Lee added that "there's a character in Justice League—a very small character—rhymes with 'Batom.'"

Independent confirmation.

Jim Lee has said it's Ryan. Which is great (except he misidentified Ryan as Korean as opposed to Chinese)

I think Ryan was supposed to be part Korean. Like a quarter Korean at most. Forgot where I heard it. It confused me in the beginning too, because Choi is a Korean name.

I will love it if Ryan's back. IF Ray's still around too. It doesn't have to be either/or, DC, dammit!

According to DC, it does. There is only one Batman, one Atom, one Firestorm, etc.

Wouldn't it be more respectful to make new Asian heroes instead of putting asians in place of white heroes?
