Kili in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey | 9+10/100
the king beneath the mountains,
the king of carven stone,
the lord of silver fountains
shall come into his own!
It upsets me when people say that Tolkien was a racist because there is nothing to signify he was. He enjoyed other cultures, he studied other cultures. He was fascinated about the world. He was attempting to create a myth about a fantasy world named Arda, which was in some way historically accurate. Not all those with, in his words, “tanned skin” were bad and not all those who had white skin were good. To say he was a racist because he based his story 6000 years in Europe, is wrong.
When did we allow evil become stronger than us?
