The concepts of race has changed over centuries and is still changing now.
    That actually is a good question. What is it exactly that determines a person's race? Is it a physical thing or a purely mental construct?

    The initial concept was most likely thrown away if it was me. However, if I release the character looking a certain way that is how the character looks and while you can change his outfit, everything else about him should stay the same including his face, hair, race, sex, and other physical characters as they are who that character is and it should not be altered in any way from how I put it out or you are making your own character on top of mine and misrepresenting my creation.

    The initial concept of Mickey Mouse is without gloves. Does Mickey Mouse wear gloves?
    Wrong. Completely irrelevant as santa also has various orders of dress.

    And the appropriate question would be is Micky a black mouse?
    Of which the answer is yes.

    I will ask you the same question I am asking Exxon. Does Mickey Mouse wear gloves?

    I already said that changing the clothes of the character is fine. When it becomes a problem is when you start to fundamentally alter the creation.

    Mickey Mouse was a popular character in the thirties with a specific identifiable look, who's outfit was initially part of his identity as race and outfit tends to be for Santa. Therefore yes it is relevant.

    Grammar rebuttals aren't worth much. Thanks for wasting your time though.
