The Human Race

You know that's the way i see it. One Race..Human, Finito! I wonder why only the Fantasy books and games seem to get this. You have the Human Race, The Orcs, The Elves, The Demons...e.t.c Clear cut differences, but ooh no leave it to humans, we always look for the littlest thing to discriminate against...Levels of Melanin, shape of eyes??? Sometimes I can't help but laugh like a mad man at the ridonkulity of this Race matter.

Actually in fantasy books and games there is only one human race - the white human race.

When was the last time you saw a black person in a fantasy game or book as a lead?

Most fantasy involving elves and things are ALL WHITE.

The only video games that have black leads are basketball games. Go figure.

My main point is not about what colour is featured in the Human Race, its the comparison against the others.

I have read books and played games that had darker people in it. I'm sure Eragon did.

But then again, If a 'white' person decides to draw a 'white' person and make all elves whitish..yeah, close-minded and all but thats their story.

The task is in our hands to recreate this. And even when we do, These other Races would still be clear-cut from the Human Race we have of all colours.
