“you had such a thirst for knowledge; and now school has ruined that.”

Hââbre, the last generation

1. Ms. Djeneba : ” I used to like my scars; they were beautiful. We used to brag about them. But, now, in the city, it is definitely out of fashion.”

2. Mrs. Sinou : “I refuse to do it to my children. This will stay on my face only.”

3.Mr. Konabé : “Our parents did this not to get lost in life. When you went somewhere, you could not get lost.”

4. Mr. Lawal : “It is here in town that I am ‘nobody’. In the village, I am a noble; people bow down when they see my face! I am proud of that.”

5. Mr. Salbre : “ I do not want this for my children. We are the last generation “

6. Ms. Martine : “When I was 10 years, I asked for them. I wanted to be like my brothers and sisters, and to show that I am courageous. “ 

7. Mr. Guemi : “I already wear my identity card on my face. This is the reason why people did it : to recognize one another. But now, this is over. We can no more be recognized.”

Like fiery eyeball thing, no problem. But don’t even try to imagine a Samoan elf. (x)

But middle earth ISN’T a whole fictional world, it’s a small part of a larger world. It’s a region that just happens to be predominently white, and the hobbits are part of a very small part of land of this region. They are based on English control folk with small close knit community. There are dark skinned people and cultures and they end up playing a part in the big war.

This is something I’ve always hated about people who criticized fantasy. They think that just cause a dragon exists that realism doesn’t fucking matter. A barbarian could punch a rock, knock off the K, and turn it into a giant bird with this kind of thinking.

Tolkein put a lot of work into the world, it’s his world and his rules. As a dark skinned man I would love dark skinned characters to appear more in fantasy settings but I”m not going to ask that you completely throw away logical writing to do so.
