There are slave NPC's yes and some slavery present in the NPC world. But I don't see us having the taking of slaves or having of slaves as a player. The racism stuff is more about the perspective at the time of Howard's world and as mentioned before because Howard tied the races in his world to real cultures and their stereotypes. We are well aware of how it fit's in as a part of the world but that doesn't mean we need not be careful and tasteful about how things are presented.
