It probably wasn't conscious but unconsciously doing something like that is just as damaging.

And if it were a random sampling of Moroccans why were there so many sub-saharan-looking persons? I would think the majority of Moroccons would look like Zidane and Benzema, as in - Berber.

But that article I posted, the rest of it was going off on some Latino-stereotypes rant...as I was like - ok then....

This might seem ridiculous but I actually appreciated the season finale not on par wth the penultimate episode.
To have to wait 10 months for the next episode is criminal and the sorf ending does lessen the blow for me.

A fantastic ending like  Ep. 9 would make it even tougher to wait out 10 months.

What I appreciated about this season is that a real effort was made to have an idea of what was going on with all the characters from episode to episode. There was greater cohesion throughout the season.

As someone who has not read the books this season was an eye opener. The Stark family is obviously not untouchable.
And I find myself wondering what go happen when the other side bounce up dem Dragons.

I find it hard to believe that the Stark family get overs so. Ah sure somebody go bounce back.
And I cah believe Jon Snow eh ask de woman to come wit him.

I can't wait to see how the character of Jamie Lannister evolves.

Now to dodge allyuh spoilers for the next yr.  ;D

The season finale is always a little subdued in Game of Thrones - the climax always(?) happens in the second to last episode - I'm thinking back to Season 1 here when they chopped off Ned Stark's head - season two was forgettable to me - can't remember which episode the climax happened in.

Season Two's climax was also in Episode 9, the Battle of Blackwater.

As far as waiting for next season goes, I could wait... the bloom off de rose fuh me.  They dragging out the series with a bunch of bullshit episodes in between, throwing in one or two compelling scenes, great Ep. 9, soft finale.  Then the capper is this whole deification of Daenerys, nauseating in itself minus the cultural/racial "insensitivity".  I still enjoy the series but the minute I have to start countenancing that against the negatives then it ain't the same level of enjoyment.

Well the problem was them scenes was filmed in Morocco, so thais where they get they extras. And Moroccan extras are going to be shades of brown.
I and all find it look off and wasn't exactly true to the source material but them's de breaks.

Racist? no
Insensitive? probably

EDIT: No way HBO made a CONSCIOUS decision to portray the slaves that way. They call for extras in Morocco. thais all
Also Daario Naharis is canonically very light skin. Meanwhile Daxos from last season was supposed to be white as milk, but in the show he was blacker than 5 past midnight.

But in his (TV) storyline they had him say that he was once a slave...

Maybe they're dragging it out because it takes the author 10 years to finish one book.  :D

But in his (TV) storyline they had him say that he was once a slave...
as it was in the books as well. He was a black actor playing a role that was originally written as a white character. I see what you alluding to eh

but look how funny it is.. It have people on fan sites blue vex that they make Xaro Xoan Daxos black, Sallador San the pirate became black, Jeyne Westerling became Talisa, a coloured woman. All Syrio and all because he hair was kinky. They say it wasn't true to the books and its just political correctness gone awry. So ppl vex either way

They have a thread here going on 55 pages on the topic of racism and also misogny on game of thrones. You might be interested in it
http://forums.televisionwithoutpity.com/topic/3204403-racism-misogyny-and-other-incendiary-topics/page-1

it have some good posts starting on about pg 53 arguing why GoT the show, while perhaps not purposely, is still participating in reinforcing stereotypes and offensive tropes

I could post the article... but I think it works best in it's original setting/format.  Discusses the racism/colonialism aspect of Daenerys' sojourns among the brown peoples.


Daenerys' whole storyline on Game of Thrones is messed up

As someone who's read ahead, I'm looking forward to this series. I just find Daeneyres (whatever spelt) incredibly boring. Seriously I was in two minds about skipping her chapters every time I get to them. I'm hoping in the new book something interesting happens with her.

I thought it was a good start. I'm interested to see how that Stark girl turn out, I think she'll grow to be a killer.

On another note, I just recently found out that a co-worker of mine sister was a character on the show, Talisa Stark, the one who was pregnant for Rob Stark. They're from Spain and his sister went to a big time acting school on England. Anyway her brother said that up to this day he still can't watch the scene when she died. Even though it's acting he's says it's too gruesome and she always tell him to suck it up and get over it lol.

Yea I didn't even know all that because his last name is Chaplin as well, every time we talk it's about Real Madrid. I was like all these years and you didn't even tell me about your sister???
