Black Panther hits theaters today. So far, it’s proving to be the most controversial comic book movie since Wonder Woman. Neither movie is in itself controversial. We just live in silly times where we politicize anything and everything. Or feeble lefties soil their Huggies over movies not being politicized enough (see Of Course! Angry Liberal Film Critics are Upset ‘Wonder Woman’ isn’t Feminist Enough and Latest Outrage: Wonder Woman is ‘FAT SHAMING!’ By Promoting Health Foods…). Something Black Panther has been especially susceptible to.
Social justice honkies have been wondering when it’s acceptable for their white devil eyes to view the movie, if at all. Which as Joe Rogan points out, was never a problem with ANY OTHER BLACK SUPER HERO MOVIE.
When Shaft was out, do you think white people couldn’t go see Shaft? When Blade came out in ’98, did white people stay home? Are we more divided than we ever were before? Are we so silly? I want to go see Black Panther, because I like f***ing super hero movies and it looks cool.
How did it change so much from when Blade was around? Because when Blade was around, no one thought about the fact it was a black super hero movie. The emphasis was that Wesley f***ing Snipes was Blade. And it looked good. He was doing karate and chopping vampires up with swords.
Long story short, blame social media for giving lobotomized leftist imbeciles a soap box and a bullhorn. It seems like if five random idiots have the same opinion, suddenly everyone else has to take it seriously.
I’m sure Black Panther will have some killer action scenes and terrific special effects. Whether the movie is “too ethnic” or not packed to the brim enough with male lovers of the peen doesn’t matter. People partake of the motion pictures for entertainment, not to have their narrow worldview validated. Except, of course, for leftists, who can’t brew their single-origin fair-trade coffee without making a political statement.
At the end of the day, everyone is squealing over a silly Marvel Comics movie. A fantasy about a man in tights who play fights in front of a green screen. Nothing more.
