    He does realize that Game of Thrones is modeled after medieval Europe, where a majority of people were white, right?

    Judging from this quote though it appears that he seems to think that medieval Europe was just like present-day America….
    “There are no black people on Game of Thrones. You don’t see one black person in Lord of the Rings,” Boyega said in a recent interview with GQ. “I ain’t paying money to always see one type of person on-screen. Because you see different people from different backgrounds, different cultures, every day. Even if you’re a racist, you have to live with that. We can ruffle up some feathers.”

    You have a good point, majority of people were white and most people of color would have been either slaves or living in a different area. Its a fantasy show that takes place in medieval Europe, i think he pushed it being in medieval Europe and the history aspect of that aside and is focusing on the fact its fantasy and anything is possible in fantasy.
