Character who hates their ancestry
In short a character who, in their universe hates the ethnic group in which they belong. It does not matter whether they are a minority or majority in their given nation.
It doesn't matter (for the scope of the question) why the character hates its group. This character could feel that their people are guilty for a great sin or that they could be blamed as the victims.
I want to hear what you guys might have to say on the matter.
Sorry everyone, I guess I should have specified ancestry instead of race and of course rephrased my question. I guess I should be specifying the problems that I'm thinking about. I just want an Nth opinion here is all. I am aware that race is some nebulous term that shouldn't have been used then. I should have known better.
- Writing a character like this without seeming to take any stance in the story just yet about whether their opinion is understandable.
- When they speak out about their thoughts I would like the audience to empathize at least somewhat with their feelings about it and not call them out too early.
My character is supposed to be a bit of a hypocrite displaying casual racism and not necessarily being called out for it.
