Also in the books Tuon and her Truthspeaker ( who was actually Semirhage ) are the first " black " characters encountered in the series. Unless there was a Dacovale in Falme under Turok. It's even made mention the shock characters have at the skin tone. I hate "progressiveness" in these entrances. Your completely changing a story to fit some narrative you want to run, who actually cares about the story. Sorry rant over.
