No, it is that people can't address what I say so they make up random stuff they can argue with.Yes, fictional things can be racist. Because duh. No, orcs aren't that. If anything they are lately a parody of soccer hooligans from the 40k influence.
Orcs are many things. 40K orcs aren't Pathfinder orcs aren't Tolkien's orcs.If fictional things can be racist, then why can't some fictional version of orcs? Or even some particular GM's use of them in a PF game?
I never said they couldn't I said they aren't.People who play orcs as the bad guys want to escape a complicated world for a few hours.
What you're suggesting is what exactly? That neo Nazi DMs using orcs as stand in for black people is common? That this is important? That there aren't literally thousands of better ways to fight racism? That anything that could in theory be racist MUST be eliminated?
