One thing that's weird is that they're seems to be, other than in the fourth book during the Quidditch World Cup, no mention of wizards/witches or schools outside of Europe. I think there was a mention of African witches, and I know there was something about the Salem Witch's Institute, but it seems weird that J.K. Rowling never mentioned anything about wizards or witches that weren't European. I would think that people of other nationalities would have more appearances than they did in the HP books. Any thoughts on the matter? NeebsLucas11 04:32, December 16, 2009 (UTC)Gabey :)

Well, since the series is told from Harry's point of view, there's no need to mention other nationalities, except where they play a part in the story. Harry never even travels outside of England, much less Europe, so introducing non-European nationalities, like the Americans, is unncessary. --Cubs Fan (Talk to me) 06:15, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

Yah I understand that much, so it makes sense that there would be not very many talk about international wizards, but you'd think there would be a few people who weren't European. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by NeebsLucas11‎ (talkcontribs).

Dean Thomas and Kingsley Shacklebolt are black, Cho Chang is asian, and Parvati and Padma Patil are hindi. - 14:47, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
They all are British. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 17:37, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

yah exactly. In Harry Potter there are people of different ethnicity, but not any people who are directly from a different area in the world like the Americas, Africa or Asia.
