So it's racist now to state facts that men of African decent would have been at the very least few and far between in medieval England let alone become Knights.
Alright honey, I guess it’s pointless to tell you that the movie is a fantasy with giants elephants and snakes and mages that in real life probably don’t exist.
Let’s ignore that. Time for a history lesson.
I don’t know if you are European or not but they were people of color in Europe for a very, very long time (myself, I am of Romani descent) so let’s talk about them.
Moors are big part of our history here, especially in Spain. In Iberia, Moors regularly met with the Spanish, so it is possible that some may have adopted knightly traditions and/or forms of combat and battle. Around 14th century, a delegation of Ethiopians noblemen came to Rome to meet with the Pope and Anti-Pope, because Ethiopians were a Christian nation known to look up to Saint Maurice, one of the more revered saints for knights in Medieval Europe, was depicted as an African Roman legionary or knight… who was black.
I would also highly recommend watching this. It’s a documentary movie discussing the evidence that it is indeed possible that there had been knights of African descent.
Let’s move to the legend of Arthur, shall we? One of the Knights of the Round Table had been a man named Morien who has been largely forgotten or whitewashed in most of the modern versions of the legend but early texts describes him pretty clearly as not-white. Here you have some quotes from the translated saga of Morien (which can be found here if you are interested in the whole article):
“He was all black, even as I tell ye: his head, his body, and his hands were all black, saving only his teeth. His shield and his armour were even those of a Moor, and black as a raven…
Had they not heard him call upon God no man had dared face him, deeming that he was the devil or one of his fellows out of hell, for that his steed was so great, and he was taller even than Sir Lancelot, and black withal, as I said afore…
When the Moor heard these words he laughed with heart and mouth (his teeth were white as chalk, otherwise was he altogether black)…”
Aaaand guess what? He was not the only one. According to this article there was 49 men who were Knights of the Round table, and 3 of them had been cinfirmed men of color. I think it’s also worth noting that not all the characters of Arthurian folklore had been fully described. Many knights were described as dark in hair and features and then it was just moved on, so we can only guess if they were men of color than not.
So, yes, saying a black man couldn’t be a Knight of the Round table is racist. You are racist for saying that. Next time, try to do your research yourself.
