The white insecurity in this thread is comically palpable
Fictional hero movies don't deserve threads this long.
Are you actually bragging about being ignorant and wrong, or is there another point to it?
but it shows how wildly insecure alot of people are.
They do as long as triggered alt-righters keep talking about them.
This thread has more pages than the mayberry thread.
Stop making it about race.
And they say racism is dead... a movie about an imaginary African country and we have 50 fuckin pages... lol
He is inspired by it of course but its not like the character is himself a black nationalist Black Panther. His story is independent from that which means he's not tied to such a specific historical moment which is why you can make the film in 2018 and it can resonate with audience far removed from the cultural context of the black nationalist group.
Typical, you Canucks just close your eyes and ears to the reality of white cultural genocide and appropriation.
Not everything is racist even when talking about race.
Calm down, breathe, white people don't hate you.
this is good
That's not at all the plot of the movie.
it is in this thread...
I don't think we're more racist. I think that the conversation is far more open than it used to be. Previously, racists were isolated in their region, the internet has made it possible for them to associate in larger groups independent of physical distance. THe internet also amplifies voice so small groups can be heard by large audiences. The widespread dissemination of information has made it possible for people who feel marginalized to realize that their circumstances are far more common than they thought and that gives them the strength to mobilize against the forces they consider responsible.
What's happened is that we've gone from an environment where one group dictated the conversation to an environment where multiple groups can contribute. When more people have a chance to speak, more issues can get addressed.
I like to think about it like a round table discussion where one person gets to tell everyone how long they get to speak and picks the topics that has changed into a discussion where everyone gets the same amount of time on whatever topic they choose. In the former, the one person can limit how much any given topic comes up. In the latter, they can't. The importance of the topics to the speakers doesn't change, only the ability to be heard.
It showed how great Africa is with a star born in South Carolina.
i am unfamiliar with the movie but i do recall that simpsons referance... lol... good catch. lol
but its hard to deny both of them are pretty clear hamlet inspired stories. no?
I saw that Japanese cartoon when I was a kid growing up in Arabia. It was dubbed into Arabic, so I didn't understand crap, but as a kid that didn't matter.
Famous cartoons and characters that ripped off others.
The hype and convo. on the movie seems a very American thing. Except for 0.00001% of the people, do Africans even give a shit about this movie and the conversation people are having over here?
I finally got around to watching it. The plot was pretty standard fare for a Marvel movie, the main antagonist could have been fleshed out a little more as there was some real promise there. His name being 'Killmonger' was just god awful. The secondary antagonist Ulysses Klaue/Klaw was comically terrible; undeveloped and one dimensional.
The highlight of the film was the stunning sets and the outstanding work by the art department. They really captured such a unique feel; an african cyberpunk/futuristic setting which was just incredible.
Yeah like he said, they have to use fantasy to come with some pride. Very sad and disturbing.
