Of course all of the racial homogeny can be somewhat forgiven if not colored by the development of Confederate. Weiss and Benioff have been able to hide behind the tried excuse that they were simply putting forward the material they were given. But now the Confederate makes past prologue. Weiss and Benioff have put together HBO’s biggest show ever and had a green light to develop any show they wanted. And it’s clear they wanted to do a show involving more people of color. And, like Martin, given free reign to birth any universe they wanted, the best idea they could come up with for black people is to keep them enslaved. Imagine that.
Ok. Twitter, folks, is *not* a branch of the government. In fact, it’s not even in anyway associated with a governmental entity nor does it receive any sort of monetary compensation, in the form of grants or otherwise, from the government — which may in some attenuated manner have rendered it an agent of the government — no, Twitter is a private enterprise. It is an independent corporation, an independent social media forum, and, as such, Twitter is free to set whatever terms they damn-well see fit as guidelines for the user-generated content which they, themselves, host.
