Dear ‘Game of Thrones’ …
Get Some Brothas on Dragons!!!

Marlon Wayans says all the buzz about “Game of Thrones” and its final season is missing one thing — some brothas in the Brotherhood Without Banners … or anywhere else in Westeros, for that matter!
We got the comedian at LAX Monday and he admitted he’s not down with the ‘GoT’ craze, partly because he’s noticed there’s a major lack of black actors. He points out the biggest characters of color on the show aren’t even human — the dragons — and don’t get nearly enough respect.
That’s not his only beef with HBO’s hit show … his other issue is all about making the most of his time — and he’s decided to throw it into a different cable sensation.
The ‘Thrones’ Season 8 premiere Sunday night became the most-watched scripted show of the year so far and shattered HBO’s ratings record with 17.4 million viewers across all platforms … though Marlon wasn’t among them.
And, for the record, there have been a handful of black characters on the show … like Daenerys’ right-hand gal Missandei, along with Grey Worm, Xaro Xhoan Daxos and Salladhor Saan.
But, he’s dead-on about this — none of them get to ride dragons.
