Hall of Fire Today!

April 8, 2000 at 12:44 pm by xoanon  - 

We’ve got an exciting Hall of Fire topic ready for you to sink your teeth and fingers into today. Check it out:

Racism in Middle-earth

The question is simple but the issue is complex. Is racism a theme in the works of Middle-earth? Tolkien often uses language describing ‘black’ versus ‘white’, or ‘dark’ versus ‘light’. Does this imply racism?

Furthermore, do you think this will play a factor in the films? To what extent will Peter Jackson change the story to address this issue?

Bring your quotes and opinions to the Hall of Fire on Saturday, April 8, at 5:30 EST [GMT -5 hours], for what should be a lively debate! [More]

Simply go to our regular chatroom and type /join #thehalloffire, and chat away!
