I pay my subscription fee of some specific reasons:
(1) I can start as many new games as I want, not only 6 parallell ones. Some non-subs want to have more than their 6 alotted games. If there were no limits for the non-subs, then I don't have the reason to pay my fee.
(2) I can participate in tournaments. Some subs want to participate subs too. If tournaments were free to enter for non-subs then I don't have the reason to pay my fee.
Other reasons for me to be a subscriber is clans and sieges, and not having ads in my screen. If non-subs get the same rights as subs to enter turnies, starting new games, etc, then I don't want to pay my fee, i get it anywhere.
This is not 'racism', not even kind of 'racism'. I think RHP are more than generous to let non-subs play for free, their 6 games and occational non-sub tournament.
