Any preferred race for DK these days?

Death Knight
How much does it matter really, like for instance i feel NEs look pretty awesome as DKs. But im also loving how Worgens look, in the end how much of a difference is one looking at?
With my experience having race changed a lot it depends on what race might be more appealing to you.

I've race changed a to a tauren and changed back because I didn't like the that taurens looked funny in certain armor sets even though they got a stam increase and stun which can be a bonus as a DK tank.

although some races give some bonuses in some instances like how human and undead racials can be strong for pvp. or how orcs are strong unholy death knights with their bonus to pet damage

a good spot to look would be http://www.wowwiki.com/Racial_trait to see what races have what racials and make a decision based on what you plan on playing as a death knight
I love how plate gear looks on me. and Darkflight is an awesome racial that I wouldn't give up for anything.

But I'm not biased or anything :P.
It matters very little, but worgen and orc are best hands down. Races that get expertise make gearing for caps a bit easier, but overall shouldn't matter much.
Female Gnomes and Goblins cuz we're !@#$%^- adorable son!

No, it's a dark class that involves death which shouldn't be taken lightly.

I still think it was lame that the excuse blizz gave for letting gnomes be death knights was stupid. The lich king doesn't discriminate? Gee what a top guy! Work place of the year award please.
Blood elf.
1. Fabulous. (lol)
2. Arcane torrent.
I think its lame blizz made dranei a race. You're a walking joke, a space goat with a tentacle beard. Atleast we shawties are adorable :P.
I am thinking of going dranei for the 1% hit

Yeah!
Go Nelf for tanking or ninja dodging Chaos Bolts or any spell that has the word "hurt" on it.

edit: Angrier faces too!
I went worgen, and gear (especially helmets) look ridiculous on us. The crit is nice, and we look ferocious in combat (the reason I made mine a worgen), but I can't believe how dumb helmets look on worgen.
I like night elf as an Alliance DK tank for the extra miss chance. Definitely the best tank race for Alliance.

Ugh, tell me about it. Helms suck. SImilar on Charr in "taht other game" GW2.
Trolls, Goblins, Gnomes, Female Humans and Orc are the only acceptable choices. Fem Drae are okay as well.

Take that back.
I'm not at all biased but
UNDEAD.
on a looks perspective, don't roll a worgen DK, the only halfgood looking set in the WHOLE game is T13, the rest always looks like !@#$.
You're probably better off human or NE.
Blood Elves, Night Elves, and Undeads are the best. These are not in a set order.
UD or DIAF
<-- Made this DK 2 weeks into WotLK. Have been Human, Worgen, Orc(for 3 days), Tauren, and I can say without question that undead is the coolest. You legit feel like a plague throwing, legion commanding, dealer of death from the grave. Plus, looking at the free healing/dmg for ToTG after long fights puts a smile on my face.

In other news, adding up what I've spent on this character alone makes me cringe. Jesus.
