They didn't really even eliminate racial bonuses from Weiweismart's blog

Were they say they're eliminating'race' for following entries because iT wAs rAcIsT? I don't know about D&D but I have always been a fan of Warhammer Fantasy RPG and I swear to god in the Animal Crossing Items previous rulebook they say'species' instead of'races' such as in last edition, wtf is wrong with everything.They eliminated racial bonuses in the latest rule publication. You select your own now so you can be a powerful elf or an intelligent orc.

They didn't really even eliminate racial bonuses, they just gave you the choice to change them if you would like.

The thing is, people could have been doing this anyway, but it's in the official rules for 5e. If people do not want bad orcs, they can just not have bad orcs in their effort, it is so simple.I listen to Not Another D&D Podcast and their campaign exists in a world where interbreeding has been a thing for millenia, therefore there are no"races". Every being is a great number of different racial aspects.

For player characters it let the players select one civic"course" while using their personality look however the want, and all beings are extremely"human-monster hybrid".

Eg. Emily's PC, Fia, is described as being violet peeled and fanged, slightly"orcish" in her face but extended and gangly elven physique. She uses the racial stats of Vedalken. It's a mishmash of different descriptions which works great having a"look how you would like, but apply a race's features".

It's also an optional rule. I personally think it is a bit OP because you can chose a feat onto every race (a feat is basically like a gift and some are extremely strong), but in the end it's to create your character more elastic when you wish to play with an Orc Wizard f.e. and don't have much use for the bonus strength.It's more fun because you can play any race as any class but it makes races just another bit of fluff details which you tell your party once and they then forget the entire game that their wizard is a half-orc.

In addition to the whole thing began because a group of cheap Animal Crossing New Horizons Nook Miles Ticket people were complaining about orcs being displaced because they're D&D depiction of black individuals apparently, even though humans are a separate race...
