I am going to be blunt.
I strongly hate majority of the things that humans do to each other and the planet Earth.
So, whenever I write fiction, I REFUSE to acknowledge Earth and all the issues of man. I write fiction, mainly fantasy and science-fiction to get away from any problems that being on this planet brings.
Yes, there are instances where I take a issue or something on Earth and write it in my story, but it is the fictional version of said problem.
When it comes to characters however, I prefer to write humans not races that you find on Earth, but human dealing with whatever life brings.
No, I will not write about a certain group of people to please them or anything of the sort.
I gotta do what makes me happy always.
So, I do not write about different races in fantasy and science-fiction.
Like my main character may have dark or tanned skin, but they are not African-American or any other race.
I try not to reveal their skin tone because I don’t think it is all that important.
I wanna focus on the character and their problems, joys, quirks, and more. Why should their skin tone even matter?
Sorry if this seems like a rant or something. I just prefer to write humans existing in other fictional planets that have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with Earth.
What do you think?
