** Most humans of the Empire are heavily prejudiced against the many demihuman species scattered around the setting. Likewise, many demihumans bear grudges against humans (and other races) for a number of reasons.
*** Even in Rhavenfell, where racism is much less present due to the many contributions of various races on the frontier over the years, most people still have certain prejudices against demihumans. However, the Rhavenfells' efforts towards integration have been slowly chipping away at the racial tension.

Not to be confused with SpaceJews, in which an imaginary species or culture has disturbing similarities to a real-world racist stereotype. Also related to HaveYouTriedNotBeingAMonster, when monsters are used as a metaphor for alternative sexual identity, rather than race. FantasticSlurs are often involved, as are {{Monster Rights Movement}}s. RealLife weaselly lines like SomeOfMyBestFriendsAreX may feature. The undesired minorities may be rounded up inside a FantasticGhetto, they may also be the targets of SuperHumanTrafficking.

A subset of the old trick of dealing with thorny issues through [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything metaphor]]. Instead of having the hero encounter racism between, say, whites and blacks in the American DeepSouth, or between ethnic Czech and Roma in the Czech Republic, or between Ainu and Japanese, or any other sets of real-world groups, they encounter racism between two-headed aliens and three-headed aliens, or between blue-skinned people and violet-skinned people, or whatever.
