Like fiery eyeball thing, no problem. But don’t even try to imagine a Samoan elf. (x)
I uh… I understand that that is comedy, and this guy is saying this for comedy’s sake; and I understand that this is also something that actually happened…
But for those reblogging this seriously, and for those who DO NOT UNDERSTAND TOLKIEN AND HOBBIT LORE…
Hobbits come in three different “breeds”:
The Fallohides, which are the ones you see throughout the LOTR and Hobbit movies, the ones in the Shire, etc etc.
Then there’s the Stoors, and the Harfoots, which are ones NOT SEEN in any of the movies because they reside ELSEWHERE IN MIDDLE EARTH. Those ones have different builds, have darker skin tones, and different ways of living than those from the Shire, WHICH IS WHAT THEY WERE CASTING FOR BACKGROUND CHARACTERS IN THE MOVIES.
This wasn’t about fucking racism, it was about being fucking canonical and not breaking lore. You wouldn’t see a Stoor or a Harfoot in the Shire, because that’s not where they are seen in Middle Earth.
