Re: Hillariously Stupid Non-Monster Things from D&D
If there are real physical and/or magical differences between the "races" (which are really more like different species) then it seems reasonable that different ones would have different vulnerabilities, or that spells could be tailored to affect one but not the other. The only racism would be how they were used.

What was far more dubious (in my opinion) was the old rule that only Evil rangers could chose their own race as their favoured enemy.
