Its still fiction

The black community is all abuzz about Black Panther the movie. The movie features  T’Challa returning to his home to assume the throne after the death of his father. Wakanda is a technologically advanced country in the movie, unlike anything in Africa. The people cited by Breitbart are going bonkers about it. "This movie will prove to the colonialists that if they had not interfered with Africa, we'd be so far advanced. ???Right! When slavery began, Africans were living in mud huts while Europeans had built the Colossus and castles and cathedrals. Asians had created the great wall of China and Arabs were using the intestines of goats and sheep for birth control.
Or what about "Being able to see women and girls like myself designing the most advanced technology and weapons the world has every seen." Sure. Dream on. Blacks transformed Rhodesia into Zimbabwe. It went from being the breadbasket of Africa to famine and starvation in a matter of years.
As for the disporia returning, that was tried as well. Liberia is doing so well... NOT!
The nice thing about fiction is you can make superheros in a far off galaxy create the ultimate civilization. Have animals converse with humans, even be intellectually superior. Tom Hanks and Sean Penn can utter amazingly intelligent phrases, even full sentences. Problem is, when you walk out of the theater, Tom and Sean are still bumbling idiots who can barely act let alone think straight.
Maybe some good can come from Black Panther. Maybe we can get a fair percentage of Chiraq and Detoilet to board a plane and fly back to Africa in hopes of creating a better continent. Hint, it won't be Africa.
So, if you want to risk getting mugged, check out a showing of Black Panther. Make sure your insurance is up to date and does not have a clause about foolish endeavors. Or you can do like me, wait until it comes out on DVD to  not bother buying it.

Yep. What a bunch of guano that movie has to be. But, It should get about 12% of American citizens to go see it or buy it. Oh wait. I forgot, thieves don't buy anything.

Mexico will hate it since the money spent in theaters isn't being spent on meth and pot.
