I love how women all over the world praise game of thrones both book and show wise saying it has fantastic writing for women and gives them power... and it is misogynistic.

Now might not be the best time for this show to come out. Frankly, as a black man, I'm kinda tired of "slave-themed" movies/shows.

Black people can be more than slaves, thugs and gang members in entertainment.

Charlottsville and what's happening is the main issue, not stuff like this. Holding this stuff back contributes to the explosiveness. You can't sweep things under the rug because sooner or later, it'll get worse. It's where art can help.
To be fair, as an artist myself, I can understand that art shouldn't be censored BUT you also need to understand that not every piece SHOULD be made.

I could paint a draw of a grown man urinating on a pre-teen girl and say "Hey, it's art", but everyone else would definitely disagree.

Artists should definitely attack inflammatory subjects, but, at the same time, we need to "read the room". Art should enrich the world and I'm not so sure this project would do that ESPECIALLY if you're showing slavery SUCCESSFULLY ingratiated into society because, even if the point of the show is to show everything going wrong, you'll initially be saying that things didn't change all that much and there are MANY, MANY people who'll use that for the wrong message.

Why the assumption that all black characters are going to be slaves? This show is going to have storylines and characters both the North and the South. I'd imagine quite a few prominent characters in the North will be African American.
