Sharing mostly for this quote:
"The show is about white-on-white violence. The show is about a turf war between different gangs who want to win the ultimate prize..."

I want to make a list of things this describes, but it would go on forever.

Most of Shakespeare
Arthurian things that aren't, like, The Knights of Breton Court
Way too much fantasy.*
Every superhero movie so far**





*I was going to say "Fantasy not written for children," but this also describes way too much of that.

**With extra-special notice to F***ing Civil War, ecccchhhh. "Some white assholes (USian, obvs) get their Black Friends and some Token Women involved in a massive pissing contest..."
(I guess it might not apply to some things. Like, I have yet to see Meteor Man...)
