Other Zebras? Meisterburg!oRT4jqzTBUCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36827616

So, we've all been watching MLP for many seasons now, but there's one character I think needs some more background info: Zecora.
Maybe I haven't seen enough episodes with her in them, but with all the ones she's ever been in, even in her first appearance in the series, I still wonder: where did Zecora come from? And if zebras do exist in Equestria, then where are the other zebras? Or is Zecora the only one? Because in almost every episode I've seen with her in it, that information is never really brought up.

I’ve always wanted a CMC episode where the class has to do a report on a non pony race. The CMC would choose Zebra and we’d get Zecora’s backstory out of it. Also the episode would have to include Diamond Tiara getting carried off by a Diamond Dog while Silver Spoon chases behind.

That would sound like a great idea for an episode, but why would it need to include that part? Diamond Tiara has been reformed

Very old idea, but it would still be funny to see.

All we know is that according to Twilight zebras "come from a faraway land".

The fact that none of the ponies had ever seen one nor that any others besides Zecora have ever appeared on the show proves that their home must be really, really far off.

My guess is that they live in what the MLP map mentions as "Undiscovered West".

But that only brings up more questions:
Why did Zecora come all the way near Ponyville? Is the standard of living better there? Is the original homeland of zebras going through a bad time? And yeah, zebras live far away, so we never see them, so for all we know, Zecora could damn well be the last of the zebra race and we wouldn't know a damn thing about it!

I mean, you'd think that after getting to know Zecora so long, we'd know a little more about her backstory.
I think that in the next season coming up, they ought to dedicate at least one episode to explaining Zecora's background more, cause I think she's one of the few characters in the show who's backstory is still murky. Cause I mean, Christ, they go into the history of a feud between two families (the Hooffields and McColts) more than they did Zecora, and we were just introduced to these two groups on the spot; where as with Zecora, she's been with us for 7 seasons now!
Sounds like bullshit, if you ask me.

I was surprised that Zecora was prominently featured in season 7 at all cause after season 4 she seemed to have vanished from the spotlight altogether.

It would be interesting find out more about her, that's true.

She could be an outcast though she never seems upset or depressed so I doubt it. My best guess would be her having ventured to the Everfree Forest to study and experiment on its plant life; she's a potion master after all.

They don't want to upset the SJWs

What does Zecora have to do with SJW's?

Maybe if they showed Zecora's hometown/-village as some tribal "African" village with straw huts and everything it could trigger the SJWs.

Oh lord, and we all know what'll happen if that occurs; same thing that happened to Derpy Hooves.

I kind of want to know her origins, but I'd rather have no backstory than a bad one.

Well, she's probably safe from becoming a Magic Negro on EQG. Or -- has she already? I don't follow this shit.

They would give her pony world colors anyway

Happy MLK Day. Always remember, a little Civil Disobedience is good for the community.

She hasn't showed up in EQG yet, for obvious reasons.

You'd have to have her be an exchange student or exchange teacher for her to work.

EqG is full already of characters that "wouldn't have worked", like CMC

That same site said Saddle Arabians are ponies and Big Mac is a Clydesdale
