I know there are some people out there reading this that are not going to "get it". And to be honest my understanding is academic at best. I belong to the power class. I am a well off, hetero, white male in a hobby predominated by white males. But that doesn't mean I don't have empathy or understanding.
To me a universally despised race that is inherently evil being depicted as dark skinned seemed to smack a little too much of racism or white-privilege at the least. I have prefered to make my Drow pale skinned like the monstrous Morlocks from H.G. Wells. Though I am also happy with purple or pale blue Drow (no offense to Scottish people).
|Come on. You all thought this was a Drow.|
No I don't see this as reverse racism since like most Irish descendants I tend to be more pale pink than anything else. My wife who has more Ukrainian in her background tends to be more reddish.
What are your thoughts?
I happen to agree with the original poster. It is not how some other might see things, but how the people who have been harmed might.
