Saw Black Panther tonight.
It wasn’t an African epiphany for me, but I was struck by the beauty and dignity of its main actors and supporting cast.
Wakandas isolation stance was logical in a world, even with super technology and super beings, where being Black meant living under the rule of others. The logic is reflected in other Marvel Earth regimes like where the Inhumans live; among others and in Israel’s choice to wall itself off in World War Z. Clearly Colonialism, to the five free tribes of Wakanda, was at least as terrifying as hordes of rampaging zombies. A Western conceit is that we welcome being managed by others as if being done a favor.
The movie fit neatly into the context of a world coming to terms with super technology and super beings as part of everyday life, politics and now race relations included.
I hope King TChalla doesn’t regret revealing his nations paradigm changing treasure trove. Now enemies human and otherwise will beat a destructive path to his door to take Wakandas Vibranium for themselves.
All in all, a solid superhero movie with the added benefit of showing Black people in something other than secondary roles.
The Superheroic Struggle of One Black Life as Commentary on All Black Lives!
To myself, I am #CapBlackRLSH, the Brown Wonder! 🙂 A Brother doing his own thing regarding crime; homelessness and random acts of kindness.
To overlords and underminers, I’m a *nigger* who must be marginalized and undermined whenever possible.
To like minds, I’m an ally, perhaps a friend.
One theme is consistent: I define myself and body slam limiting or degrading definitions of who I should be and what I should accept.
Too much of Black life has been burying how you really feel so as not to offend people who often offend you without a second thought.
*If my use of the racial kryptonite N Word offended you; I ask you to consider encountering being treated like one for 52 years- THAT’S offensive TOO!!!*
The superheroic struggle of one Black life is a commentary on all Black lives; individual, yet intimately interconnected, regarding how we are misperceived.
