They're certainly not an obvious ethnic stereotype, unlike, say, Tolkien's dwarves. Likewise, I don't see how GURPS Fantasy Folk kobolds were an obvious stereotype, either. At worst, they're akin to house elves in Harry Potter: slaves who generally liked being slaves. Which could be used to justify slavery (the argument was common among slave owners in the American South), but they don't fit with the actual ethnic stereotypes of slaves.
Cura isto securi, Eugene.
