Black Panther Movie Cultural Review- The Black Hype
So Marvel has found a sweet way to capitalize on the pockets of black people by giving them a black hero called the Black Panther. Hundreds of thousands of black people have flocked to the theater to support the so called black movie that is directed and produced by a black man. All these black people have risen up in support of this great film to join hands and help the starving children of Africa! Wait, that's not what is really happening is it? Well, if only the African waggonist within America, UK and the Caribbean would show the same support for real causes which affect the black nation. Things would have certainly improved for us folks. Instead everyone has gotten a rush of jungle fever, tieing up their heads with head bands and dressing in robes and dancing around drums. But just give it time, by the end of February 2018, "Brothas" will return to busting caps in the asses of the people of wakanda, and the women who are all fancied out in African attire will be calling Maury to find out who is the father of their six children. You see, black people all have their priorities twisted. Their is no longevity to what they do. If they rise for a cause today, the flame dies out tomorrow because some idiot sold the fuel for a pair of rims or sneakers. But aside from we all dashing to movie theaters to indirectly fatten "The Man's" Pocket. Let us take a look at what this Black Panther movie is all about.
Where The Heck in Africa is Wakanda?
The Exodus has begun. Millions of Black people who were enslaved in America and Europe are on their way to Africa to settle in the technological advanced nation of Wakanda. The only problem is that the plane may run out of fuel circling Africa trying to find Wakanda and crash land in some deep stinking civil war and have their bodies torn apart by boys age 10 firing high powered assault rifles supplied to them by white nations. Just saying, if you had booked your ticket to Wakanda, chances are the airline just played you because Wakanda is a fictional East African nation which appear in Marvels American comic books.It is the most prominent of several fictional native African nations in the Marvel Universe and home to the superhero Black Panther. So if your neighbors are telling they are going to Wakanda, just smile and wish them all the best and then you can probably move into their home because chances are that flight isn't coming back.
About The Movie
So the star of the movie Black Panther is T'Challa. And you have to say his name with African drum beats in mind. T'Challa's loving father dies in Wakanda and he rushes home to suck up the crown and become King of the Wakandans. But of course as with all movies and people becoming king, there will be obstacles in the way that think they should rule Wakanda. So this powerful enemy resurfaces to disrupt T'Challa's kingdom and bring doom and destruction to the world. Sounds like Dr. Evil if you asked me. T'Challa is forced to save himself, Africa and the rest of the world by fighting this enemy as the great Black Panther.
Overall, the characters are great. The movie is awesome. The Black panther costume is what every super hero and civilian wants. This Marvel film can easily be called the best Superhero movie produced, especially when you look at movies like superman which seems as though it is a Twilight Knockoff. I know I would definitely rock the town in those black leather tights with a God damn cat mask over my face walking around begging cat food. But is it worth the Mass Exodus? No. The mass exodus of black people portraying support for Africa should be from the inception of slavery. It should be when black men are shot down like wild animals by racist white cops and other racist black men. It should be when the projects are flooded with guns and drugs destroying the families of the Black Nation. This is where we need a mass exodus. This is where we need a continuous hype. This is where all Nations of people of color should have joined hands and put their strength together and support each other emotionally, educationally, morally and financially.
Yes, someone has shown me the film and I think it is worth watching if you are into superhero movies. But honestly, as for me, I would rather stay home and chill with pink panther.
White Folks - Go Support The Black Movie!
Don't be Afraid of Wakanda or the Black Panther. Neither are real! Go get your ticket and a bucket of popcorn and enjoy.
