    Is the series a factual documentary or is something else?
    Shakespeare... The whole thing has just been blown out of proportion.

    As long as the series isn't being presented as historical fact I don't have a problem with it, so half men-half monsters and wizards are acceptable in Shakespeare but a black queen isn't?

    A black man should play Hitler next time in a film, while a white would need to cast ML King. That would be fair.
    Ha ha!
    That would never happen. Black actors are only cast in good guy white roles, and increasingly only in good guy roles.
