Petition To Let Me Play As A Drow

My DM says i can’t play as a drow in our game because they’re “always inherently evil” and “are a problem to work with”

I’ve given him a perfect back story to explain why the drow isn’t evil and fits into the story, and i am perfectly aware of all problems being a drow could cause and i am prepared to deal with them.

despite this, he has stubbornly decided that i can not be a drow, and has even made threats against any of my other characters if i persist.

so i’m going to use this as a petition. every not this gets counts as a signature, and since he believes that all other DMs will agree with him then i would love it if other DMs could comment to disagree.
