Son of the Serpent
i never said it was.If you really think a D&D movie is the first step of "fixing the world," I got some bad news for you...
Just curious, I get that Drow are supposed to be based on Norse mythology... but has anyone done analysis on why medieval Norse associated dark-skinned elves with evil?
Actually i consider the first step to be popularizing the ignoring of those who whine. Its already a highly successful step. Gen z hates the whining politics of millenials. As a result many of the sacred cows of millenials have died in the ears of gen z far more than most intergenerational political transitions. Ignoring petty racial squabbling is all the rage with gen z.
Lol...the movie being a step...nah...but if the drow are in it (and played by europeans as would make most sense) and the director ignores whining, it wont be a step in itself but it will be a continuation of current gen z political persuasion and a small example inside of the first step. Ignoring.
These are the politics of gen z. It is how they feel about things. Its the direction they are going. Its not racist its just apathetic to rhings too minor to care about. Like black face that isnt black face.
Also um...ancient norse didnt associate dark skinned elves with evil.
They associated evil with dark elves (among other groups of fey too) which was something they did with lots of mysterious creatures. It had nothing to do with africans of sub-saharan african ancestry. "Dark skinned elves" vs "dark elves" also means ccompletely different things. Subtle but massively signifficant difference.
Its not even related to africans and in truth wouod probabpy be best portrayed by european actors.
