Why are real life examples in Troper Tales?

Well, obviously they're gone now, but I don't see why real life examples aren't allowed. There really are plenty of existing groups named like this, and it's probably the reason why it happens in fiction. I guess the idea is that we don't want to make the modern-day members of these societies seem like racists?

I think there should be real life examples. At the very least there are similar enough real life occurrence that deserve some discussion, if only intimate why calling naming the nearby group barbarians (because the only sound they make is bar), or Ajam (because you cannot comprehend what they are saying) is any different.
