* FantasticRacism: Some exists against zebras. It's worse against donkeys and griffons. It should be noted that Equestrian racism is more rooted in cultural xenophobia brought about by insularity rather than malice, giving an interesting result of racism being more like fear born of ignorance than some kind of hatred, for the most part...
** Interestingly, there is severe prejudice against firearms and their users. This makes sense, given that the ponies are by and large peaceful to a fault and herd mentality prevails amongst them.

* SharedUniverse: The author worked as an editor on {{Fanfic/Rainbow in the Dark}}, and it's been revelaled that it is possible that {{Fanfic/Rainbow in the Dark}} exists in the same universe, although perhaps not in the same continuity as Racer and the Geek.
