Like fiery eyeball thing, no problem. But don’t even try to imagine a Samoan elf. (x)
Um, except that a fantasy world (in order to successfully suspend the audience’s disbelief so that we can actually focus on the storyline and characters) needs to follow its own internal logic. So if it’s already been established that hobbits are fair-skinned, curly-haired, short, hairy-footed creatures, then it wouldn’t make sense to have one random dark-skinned hobbit wandering around in the background. There could an entire group of dark-skinned hobbits, though! Then again, given that hobbits are notorious for staying put, it seems unlikely that an entire population migrated to the Shire from a region that isn’t analogous to England. And if just one person had traveled to the Shire from one of these areas, that person’s story would probably have been interesting enough to be well-known throughout the area. (HEY GUYS! FANFIC IDEA. I’m lookin’ at you, vifetoile.)
Point being, maintaining logic within the established framework of a fantasy story isn’t automatically racist.
