Let this be a lesson.
Trolling in real life…
Will get you knocked the fuck out.
Like fiery eyeball thing, no problem. But don’t even try to imagine a Samoan elf. (x)
The only problem I have with this statement, and people are free to disagree with me, is that historically speaking for the Tolkien Universe and the culture Hobbits are based on, I doubt you find a born dark-skinned Hobbit. And movies do get judged on continuity and authenticity of these things, and based on the sort of climate the Hobbit is set in for the Hobbits culture (largely Irish I think). Plus you can’t put modern ideals into this when the universe is set, though fictional, a medieval-ish period, which would mean that dark-skinned people would have been considered slaves. Please feel free to correct me, expand upon my theories or discuss your own point.
Except there are canon Hobbits that are “browner” than others.
This is the LORE
Not to mention the fact that in this day and age, there is no excuse for whitewashed fantasy.Also, can we stop the “brown people = only slaves” bullshit? This is FANTASY and yet you mean to tell me your first and only thought for brown people showing up is SLAVE. In a genre that can create a whole damn race of people and gods and lore within the lore, thats all you got for brown people? That aint “historical accuracy” Thats white supremacist indoctrination you spewing right there Not to mention it has NO BASIS in actual fact, since medievalpoc has debunked all that “brown people were only slaves and thats it” bullshit.
