I think it's sad and it removes the irony in whatever employee at CCP made black people slaves yet again 20,000 years from now.

On a more serious note: the factions' follow different bloodlines and obviously seem to fornicate within them. Now, 'tis true that CCP has shown us that "forbidden love", interracial fornication, may become a reality, and that would also be something I'd like to see since it would just add a realistic touch (people fall in love). What I would have a problem with, though, is if the Civire Caldari suddenly started looking black. It would be different if the bloodline read Civire-Brutor of Caldari State or Brutor-Civire of Minmatar Republic, but it won't, as for as I know. Instead it it will be a black Civire or a white Brutor (what's the opposite of an Albino?) which neither is logical. We might as well have blue pigmentation as that would make as much sense. This is, after all, a sci-fi game; not a fantasy-game.

Thus, since black pigmentation is a dominant factor, and since Caldari State, just like Amarr Empire, favor their own kindred above all else, where is the logic in them suddenly going dark without making it unique with "True Amarr-Brutor" or the like?

Wouldn't it be cool to create a story about a character whose heritage can be traced back to both Gallente and Caldari, or Amarr and Minmatar? They give us this tool, and this tool gives us more freedom and freedom is always good, but without the ability to formally have two different racial heritages in one's racial description, the tool itself is worthless.

You know not all Minmatar are black right?

I read your post three times but it still came of slightly dumb considering I mentioned "Brutor" several times. I could insult your stupidity, but honestly, I don't have the time. If you'd have bothered to think twice (or is thinking once too painful?) you'd have grasped the concept that Minmatar is the only race which has a black bloodline, which is slightly funny considering it's the only race which has been enslaved. There are several Asian and Caucasian bloodlines in the different races, but only one black bloodline, and it just so happens this bloodline belongs to an enslaved race within New Eden.

Stupid black Minmatar is-

No, considering that you're probably just a white guy who's tremendously sorry that his forefathers had two kitchen slaves, I really see no point in insulting black people.

Because it's a fundamental change in your avatar's appearance.

I might want to refine my facial tattoo a bit, but I'm pretty happy the way things are. I don't really give a crap, to be honest.
