I would agree but you are familiar with D&D, and the evil matriarchy aspect of the Drow has always bothered me more. However dropping either aspect on the Drow into a twitter post where most people would not know a drow from the back of a bus, seems like a recipe for trouble.This drow conversation is interesting.
I'm half-black, and so through my father and my extended family, I have a little bit of perspective. And none of us have ever seen the drow as a racial stereotype. Some art in the 90s did this, but for the most part, drow look nothing like anyone in my family, have a completely alien culture to us, and the only connection you can make is on how dark their skin is. I personally (and this is not me speaking for anyone) is that it is more offensive to say that I, or my family, are drow because of dark skin then anything else. Why am I and those I'm related too being compared to a fantasy thing that looks and acts nothing like us?
Hey guys " the D&D movie bad guys are an evil black race ruled by women" seems like to me to be the perfect flamebait in the right arena.
