Reminds me of the orc nonsense. Says more about the person if that was the first thing you thought of.

I never once thought of monkey pocks as a black thing or black people as monkeys.

In LotR, the Orcs are technically elves that have been corrupted, so if they’re going to be anybody they’re going to be Jungle Asians that took steroids.

From what I understand, the new Amazon series has black elves who don't appear in the later movies, thus implying that they are the elves who became orcs.

But I'm sure they only did that in order to point out other people's racisms...

Nah, see, all the black elves and African-Numenorian folx and dark-skinned Hobbits were actually on the front lines of the battles at the end of the Second Age, and died heroically saving the inferior and cowardly huwite mails. The stories told of that time by Elrond were made up to make himself and the huwites look better, because he was jealous of how awesome the proud Hobbits, Men, and Elves of Black and Indigenous Color were.
