Sent this off to HBO this morning…

Dear sir or madam,

My name is Kenneth Snipps and I need your help.

Recently while shopping for toothpaste, I encountered my friend Old Richard. I asked him how he was doing and he said terrible. He explained that he had just finished watching the first season of the HBO series Game of Thrones. He said everyone was telling him about what an excellent program it was, and that he should be watching it. So he did.

I asked him if it was bad.

“No, it’s good. You should watch it,” he said.

“Then why are you upset?”

“It’s all a bunch of white folks! They even got a little white dude. But no black folks!”

He said it was ridiculous that a fictional story about an entire world, couldn’t find a part for a black man. It made him so mad he has taken to calling HBO, Honky Box Office.

I calmed him down by assuring him I would write a letter about it. So here it is!

Can you tell me if there are any black actors in the second season of Game of Thrones, or should Old Richard just return his unopened DVD copy for a refund, and buy his wife the hair extensions she wants?

Thank you for reading and responding to my letter.

Your friend,


Kenneth Snipps
