First time I read the books as a kid, it totally slipped past me..second time I read them as a teenager, I was like what the hell???? But I take into account, the storyteller, the era the books were written and the mindset of the time. So I do my best to overlook that and try to enjoy the overall theme of the stories.....but its hard as hell to do that now that I'm older.
I was reading it and getting into the whole fantasy aspect of the story and it honestly took a minute for the name, and the negative characteristics ascribed to the people, to sink in. All I could think of was how UNsubtle... Calormene... colored men... Calormene... colored men.
