I don't know about racist, but there were plenty of times in the movie when I wished Lawrence Fishburn had shown up and to get things moving. I could also have used a little bit of the Fresh Prince's tude and witty quips. Maybe some booty as well.

Because it's set in a fantasy version of ancient north-west Europe.

Re: Why are there no blacks in Lord of the Rings?
Tolkien stated he wanted to create an origin story for Western Europeans because most white mythology had been displaced by Christianity.

So he researched many Norse, German and British texts that still survived, and rewrote them into the Middle Earth mythos.

Re: Why are there no blacks in Lord of the Rings?
As an example, Odin is portrayed as Gandalf.

Aragon's broken sword being reforged was based on a mythical/historic (could be either, like the bible depending...) blacksmith.

Re: Why are there no blacks in Lord of the Rings?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 796044


Also, the name of Gandalf, and the names of many Dwarves, were lifted direct from the Poetic Edda.

The dwarfs under earth, as Durin bade them.

Nýi and Nithi, Northri and Suthri,
Austri and Vestri, Althjólf, Dvalin,
Nár and Náin, Níping, Dáin,
Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Nóri,
Án and Onar, Ái, Mjóthvitnir.

Veig and Gandálf, Vindálf, Thráin,
Thekk and Thorin, Thrór, Vit, and Lit,
Nár and Regin, Nýráth and Ráthsvith;
Now is reckoned the roster of dwarfs.

Fíli, Kíli, Fundin, Náli,
Heptifíli, Hanar, Svíur,
Frár, Hornbori, Fræg and Lóni,
Aurvang, Jari, Eikinskjaldi.

The dwarfs I tell now in Dvalin's host,
Down to Lofar -- for listening wights --
They who hied them from halls of stone
Over sedgy shores to sandy plains.

There was Draupnir and Dólgthrasir,
Hár and Haugspori, Hlévang, Glói,
Skirvir, Virvir, Skafith, Ái,
Álf and Yngvi, Eikinskjaldi,

Fjalar and Frosti, Finn and Ginnar.
Will ever be known, while earth doth last,
The lines of dwarfs to Lofar down.

Re: Why are there no blacks in Lord of the Rings?
Good question. You would have to ask the author. We can speculate, but the author would be the real source. I think he's dead. But it is a fantasy. Fantascies can be imagined in any color you like. Actually, I never imagined any color of skin while reading the books. I just enjoyed the story. It flowed in wonderful images. But I don't remember any skin colors per say. Have a great day.

Hi, Tolkien wrote the books while he was out at war, not sure if it was ww1 or ww2 but he would go back to his barracks and write parts of the story after serving on the frontlines to forget the horrors he was witnessing, i guess those wars were mostly between white folks.

He served in WW1. And much of Lord of the Rings were completed during the peak of WW2,so war is a huge part of the story.
