“White people aren’t allowed to talk about Wakanda or Black Panther!”
OK seriously please shut the fuck up. You’re embarrassing yourselves. Black Panther only exists because of two white guys. He is not some integral part of “black culture“. Black people do not even kind of own the right to enjoy Black Panther.
Imagine being a long-time fan of the character, having read all the comic books, only for when it gets adapted into a movie, for XxmelaninGurl94xX with an afro, who probably never heard of Black Panther before, to tell you on Twitter that you aren’t allowed to watch it.
I mean don’t get me wrong I understand the initial excitement. Hell I was excited to see a big budget superhero film with a black ensemble cast. I do believe representation can be really cool and important. But it went from “wow we finally have a black superhero we can celebrate and enjoy together just like all the others“ to “this is just for black people! No one else is allowed to watch it! Wypipo get out reeeeeee!” In record time. Even though that’s kind of what I expected.
The irony is if they were successful at scaring white people away from watching the movie, the film would bomb and studios would be nervous about another black hero film. These idiots are gonna mess around and play themselves.
