RaceFail09

Apparently I've been living under a rock this week because, although I've been seeing parts of the Epic Race Debate in Science fiction and and fantasy fandom for some days now, I didn't realize that it was all one big discussion until I read dolphin__girl's post. It makes for interesting reading and crosses over into some medievalist blogs as well. Seeking Avalon has a summary of the discussions that started the ball rolling and rydra_wong is keeping track of their many branchings.

I'm not sure I have much to add at this point, except that it gives me a lot to think about in my own attempts at writing fiction. I may write something up when I've processed it all.
