The Black Person’s Guide to Game of Thrones

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...)

Hence why I and most of my people don't care for shit like Game of Thrones. Like, just...no. No, thank you. We already know what it's about and we don't care for it.

Nope, nope.
