Racism and Middle Earth: Part 1/6: People of Color in Middle Earth

If you haven’t already seen this post, I’d highly recommend you take a look - it outlines this series of racism posts and also includes my blanket disclaimer as to my own ethnicity/point of view.

Regarding feedback: I love it. But keep in mind that this is part 1 of 6, so there’s a pretty good chance I’m already planning on talking about whatever you’re thinking off. Send me a message anyway, be my guest, just keep that in mind. And, if your feedback is more of the “sharing my ideas on the subject” variety, it’s probably more valuable to the fandom as a reblog - put your words out there so everyone can benefit from them, not just me (I promise I’ll be reading all the reblogs on this post anyway, so I’ll still see it.)

(Also, please let me know if you notice any typos/factual errors. I’ll likely polish this up for a downloadable final version, so any mistakes you catch now would really help me out later.)

Racism and Middle Earth: Part 2/6: Numenorean Hierarchy of Men

Okay, this is part of an ongoing series, and also a draft (the final, complete version will be offered as a downloadable pdf.) As such there are a couple un-attached pages that you will probably want to know about:

Reblogged for a read through and comment tomorrowwww

I also think part of the good feeling a lot of people who have just read/watched/listened to LOTR have for Numenoreans is through Aragorn whose bloodline and link to Numenor is portrayed as better than that of the Steward and his ‘always meant to be king’ deal is played up. I remember being 9/10 when I first listened to the book of LOTR and bought into that sort of higher lineage crap and the word Numenorean was automatically like ‘ah that means something special, it means Aragorn is better than all the other dudes’. But then actually behind the scenes there’s this racist shit going on which I didn’t click because I was small and internalising shit anyway…

U get me?
