Dkcreationscreen

Death knight character creation screen.

The death knight is available to all races on any server.[1] When originally released, death knights could only be made on a server that had a level 55 or higher character on it; this restriction was lifted in patch 3.0.8, and now death knights can be made on any server, provided there is at least one level 55 or higher character in your account.

Races

The reason all races can roll death knights is because a death knight is basically a freed slave. Anyone who is susceptible to death and having their soul taken by the Lich King is a death knight. Sure, a lot of the Lich King's slaves are mindless. However a lot of his ex-slaves were champions.

There really is no lore that makes the death knight playable for any specific limitation of races; because then, why would a human get to be a death knight but not a tauren? Did Arthas have a change of heart when he saw the peaceful race?
