Wait.. it's America's fault that an Irish film critic dinged an SJW film?

I wouldn't say that it is an SJW film. It's set in a fictional African country that is technologically advanced and has kept itself secluded from the rest of the world, rarely allowing in outsiders, so it is justified in having a majority black cast.

It's a big budget Marvel movie so it will probably be a fun watch. I don't have any problems with the movie itself per se, but rather the retarded rhetoric that surrounds it saying that Africa would be a technologically advanced paradise if whitey hadn't come along and fucked everything up, or that this movie is the greatest flick since Citizen Kane.

I'ts a movie about comic book superheroes not fucking Hamlet.

There's a context. Apart from the "secluded from the rest of the world" part, the premise is straight out of the SJW black nationalists' "black identity history" movement. Nonsensical shit, for example, such as:

http://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/if-ancient-egyptians-were-negroes-then-european-civilization-is-but-a-derivation-of-african-achievements-2151-6200-100098.php?aid=53515

To say nothing of utter trash like Martin Bernal's "Black Athena" volumes.

SJWs have been trying for a long time to rewrite history by making up facts in service to racial identity politics. It's a small step to see the market value in a fictional character that appeals to that mythos. Indeed, the critical reaction of fawning admiration of the story *just because it idolizes a black character in the role of an ancient technically advanced african nation* rather directly indicates that BP may in fact just be a bunch of sjw trash.

That's where the whole "We Wuz Kangz" meme orgininated from.

The Black Panther character was created in 1966 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, a couple of white guys. They had to change his name to Black Leopard for a time to avoid him being associated with the Black Panther Party and the orginal name for his concept art was Coal Tiger. Also, he lives right next door to a country named Niganda. I don't think he was intended to be a SJW character. ;)

That said though, I am sure the folks behind the movie are very aware of current cultural trends.

Waitaminute . . . the whole movie is what? 99% black folks?

How can that be "betting big on diversity?" Doesn't "diverse" imply many types? Not simply fawning over one of the types?

Diversity now means no white people.

Silly me . . . here I was thinking the "diversity" was another way to refer to "individuality" and NOT a way to refer to "tribalism" . . .

Vivica A. Fox is backing a petition that is calling for Disney to donate 25% of the movies proceeds to the black community...

Quote:
Vivica A. Fox has made it very clear that she believes Disney bosses should donate profits from Black Panther to the African-American community.

The actress is throwing her weight behind the Change.org petition for Marvel and Disney to invest 25% of the movie’s proceeds back into the community, and the Empire actress says it’s the right move and could pay dividends for many years to come.

‘I think that’s an excellent idea,’ she told TMZ, ‘I think that’s just giving back and that’s what you have to do in the entertainment business.’

The creator of the petition says the donation is the right thing to do because Disney has marketed the movie almost exclusively to black moviegoers, many of whom have waited a longtime to see this kind of representation on the big screen.

It’s release is also being released in the middle of America’s Black History Month.

The petition asks that the studios stop simply asking for money from black customers for the film, but rather put their money where their mouth is and agree to set aside 25 percent of their worldwide profit ‘to be allocated for investment in black communities, and in programs within these communities that focus on S.T.E.M.’

Best not tell her that the petition was actually started by a troll from /pol/. ;)
