D&D being ethnocentric in favor of white males of European descent because of reasons, consider Dark Sun’s villichi. The lore casts them as human mutations susceptible to abrupt light (whatever that is) and possessing “paler” skin.
Pale skin, in an Athas meant to partly reflect our world.
The Seven Cities cover skin tones ranging from white or “olive” (Tyr & Balic - Roman/Phoenician/Greek), light brown (Urik - Babylonian/Mesopotamian), a deeper brown (Raam - Egyptian/Hindi and Nibenay - Cambodian/Thai), to dark brown/black (Gulg - Central Africa); I have no idea what skin color is Draj (Aztec).
So…what does a light brown, brown, or dark brown/black skinned human with “paler” skin looks like? There’s this bit of unconscious racism in the lore I am only articulating now through these words but noticed years earlier.
Villichi are a human master race, and they’re extra white. Mmm.
