If skin color isn't a big deal, then why cry foul about the lack a race? By doing so, you're suggesting that skin color is a crucial characteristic that defines a person. I beg to differ. Besides, if you look at most high fantasy, there is rarely anyone of dark skin anyways. Deal with it.

In a game with all sorts of mythical creatures ( and no im not black btw ) and all kinds of humanoids and human like champions, while their are mythical creatures like nocturne who are black, they are not black in the same sense that i am talking.

I find it incredicly odd that there are no black humans in this game.

And by human i dont mean techincally human, but resemble humans, champions who fit this " human " description would be jarvan, lux, draven, darius, garen, etc" All white

By your logic:

"I think China should stop having so many Chinese babies, those Chinese parents should have Japanese and Vietnamese babies too, otherwise it's racist because they're excluding all those other nationalities."

But that's not a choice. Try again.

No one said any of that. Some people thought a spider would be cool to play. Some people think a black person would be cool to play. Says nothing about character.

And another thing, LoL is loosely based on Ancient era to 19th century Real/Mythical Warriors/Mages ... You dont see many blacks involved in any of this

There were no black warrior all the way up to the 19th cetury? Gee, I never knew that.

Maybe in Runeterra the black skin color does not exist.

Your turn to try again.

Its a fictional world and Riot rarely limits something they want to do by lore also whether or not black people in the league universe has never been established. My initial point still stands, you choose what race the champions are period.

I don't know why you linked to that. It was such a bad argument.
