To be fair, a talking, fire-breathing lizard is by far more plausible than a black person knowing their father's name.

I thought maybe this was a joke - maybe it was a mockery of how multiculturalism has gone overboard. I was wrong. There are people who actually believe this.

Why can't she write a sci-fi book about negroes, then? Why does she want to force others what to write about when clearly they don't want to? Fucking socialists.

I agree.
The solution is to stop consuming other peoples cultures and start creating one's own.
But the realist in me says I should change my pen-name to Ja'quan and write a fantasy about a gay black womyn whose dragon cures her aids.

There's a fuckton of sci-fi where the characters' race or skin color isn't even specified.

But the damn kiddies need to have diversity spoonfed to them to be happy.

Come to think of it, are there any (known/popular) black american authors?

Look at fantasy authors:
Pretty much all of european ancestry, and their tired stories have a base in europe's medieval history (cept someone like Le Guin, whose anthropology background purposefully made her strive to make something different).

The weapons and arms, the architecture, the mythical beasts, all based mostly on european history and myth. Not many blacks in northern europe at that time IIRC (they were all being enslaved by arabs).

Perhaps in the far east there is a tradition of scifi and fantasy that obviously isn't european based, and that would make sense.

Anyone know of anything like that that has been translated into English?

She is not asexual, she just probably hang out with nerds who don't wake up her desire. One minute with an alpha male and his allure and her sexuality would flourish.

Hey /pol/ here, as we are a developing and thriving community I believe that eventually we deserve representation, despite the fact that I despise democracy I will defend it when it benefits me. As we have these campaigns for greater representation of Negros and the fairer sex in media, it necessarily follows that we in turn deserve the same, otherwise we are an oppressed minority. So I would like to see more films and novels which depict veritable Aryan superman raping, enslaving subhumans and then creating objectively superior art about their conquests. Thanks guys :).

What is the biological basis for race?

There is no need for diversity if everyone is equal, that doesn't make any sense. Diversity is necessary, and things like background, class, or social status are virtues exactly because people aren't equal.

>fantasy books
Most fantasy is based off of Nordic myth, which is why people in those stories are of Nordic ethnicity. The work of J. R. R. Tolkien and Chistopher Paolini is based off of Nordic lore such as The Prose Edda. Fantasy books that are not based off of Nordic myth are books were the characters are animals, such as Kathryn Lasky's Guardians of Ga'Hoole Cycle. If she wants fantasy books with people who are ethnically African she should read Sunjata.
