The topics of race and racism were unheard of on Safehold. Unlike Old Earth, where one group would enslave or make genocidal war on the other, on Safehold the only differences that mattered would be those of nationality, economic status (be it noble or peasant), and later religious leanings.
This can be attributed to the fact that the eight million colonists who first settled Safehold during Operation Ark were evenly dispersed across the planet, with race, or former ethnic group being an issue for placement, coupled with the fact the average human at the time of the Gbaba invasion had mixed ethnic origins.

- ↑ It should also be mentioned that after nearly 900 years of intermixing amongst the populations of Safehold it is possible that no significant physical differences may exist anymore.
