I’m not a big TV watcher, so I might not be the best person to comment. From what I know about Game of Thrones, though, I can’t imagine wanting to be a part of that world. It might be the only way quicker to the grave than a traffic stop for a person of color! Nasty show…
True that! (I watch it, and ugh…no…the white people can have it.)
I think the show accurately captures European history during the mid evil period. And so, one can’t realistically expect a lot of black people to be on GoT…it is odd though that all the slaves that we do encounter on GoT are POCs and further that rarely do we get any account of what feudalism (i.e. Medieval slavery) was like on GoT. The absence of the depiction of fuedal life is, in my view, almost an unforgivable inaccuracy. And the books don’t broadly skim over this, the way the show does.
But either way…you’re right! I wouldn’t want to be represented in that world! The Europeans can have it!
