What race should I pick and what skill trees should I focus on?

You decide.

Requirements:
- Will try to do everything but thief guild and dark brotherhood.
- No mods

Make a female nord death knight. Heavy armor, 2 handed swords and conjuration.
Be very racist against all other races, especially elfs and beasts.
If brute force doesn't fix the problem, you're not using enough of it.

How does one act racist in this game? Also, I don't care for conjuring.

Race: Nord.
Gender: Whatever.
Skill Tree: Destruction and Restoration.

You never use melee weapons, just magic.You CAN use a shield if you want, just not a weapon.

Game offers quite a few chances to be racist towards most races, except Nords (I think).

Not bad. Why a nord?

Also, destro is incredibly gimped without the mod for scaling by level.

You get spotted too easily or do no damage if you don't spec into it.

I think it feels... weird playing Skyrim without being a Nord. They "fit" well with the setting. The best thing is: if you wanna be a racist prick, the Nords will feel like you are right at home. If, however, you DON'T wanna be a racist, it will be an interesting new perspective: a Nord that is not a racist, even though most of them are.

Also, they have +5 Block, useful if you want to be a mage that uses a shield, and Battle Cry, a skill that will make enemies flee for a few seconds (don't even need to explain why that would be useful for a mage, right?).

Sure, but that just makes the game a bit more challenging and, to me, more fun. The game is still manageable with Destruction only. You just have to make sure you learn how to survive stronger enemies. Hell, survival will play a bigger part in here. And I recommend the Alchemy tree too, but that's not really mandatory.

I played as a pure mage for 80 hours before, and was amazingly fun. And no, I never put even a single point in the sneak tree.

I normally avoid combat as combat in these games are terrible. I also normally steal everything I can like this was a thief game.

I also do not like shields in this game.

But give a few examples of how to be a "racist" nord mage.
