okay, STOP IT NOW!!! I will not put up with this thread
going ANY FARTHER!
Part of the reason we, and FASA, has always tried to get
native authors for their sourcebooks is to avoid
stereotypes, of any kind. Damaging or not. Real or not.
Stereotypes have to come from somewhere, but they are always
gross exagerations of real tendencies or occurences, and are
not fair to either the people being stereotyped or those
believing those stereotypes.
And no, this is NOT about political correctness. I hate
that bullshit as much as anyone else. Rather, this is about
being considerate to fellow listmembers. There is no need
to go out of our way to upset people (and don't think I'm
pointing any fingers here, I'm not).
Let's stop this crap before it goes any farther, and focus
on the work on hand. Okay? No more talk of misconceptions
or stereotypes from EITHER side of the fence.
