It might just be the first orc cop in that department, which is less extreme.Yeah honestly the "first orc cop" thing must mean racism against orcs is incredibly strong in this US. Like Rhodesia levels of racism. It doesn't seem like the movie wants to address that if discrimination is that bad, then the police force must be the bad guys. Even if corrupt cops are the villains, the idea that a society that segregated has *good cops* and that it is an institution that attracts good people is a stretch.
EDIT: Like imagine if this was based in apartheid South Africa and the main character was the first black cop. How would he be the good guy if he's enforcing apartheid?
