For those folks that he’s handing money to, maybe he’s just temporarily providing a salve when what they might need is actual help (housing, education, etc.) to get and stay out of whatever their situation is.
He’s not perfect, no.
I’m a black person in America. Having an open mind, for the most part, is mandatory, otherwise chiropractors and spine surgeons would be billionaires from all the motherfuckers we’d be choking out on a regular basis.
A good movie is a good movie whether you like it or not
Mitt Romney makes Dennis Kucinich, the dude who wanted to move to Washington state to run for congress after Ohio got so sick of him that he became the first white person to be gerrymandered out of office (to which Washington stated told Dennis, “nah, you stay in Ohio, son”) on the Thirst Scale, look dry as a desert.
You mean because no one wants to hear about the nitpicking that really isn’t that deep (seriously, it isn’t) or making controversy where there really isn’t any (Killmonger toxic masculinity cancels out Nakia’s world peace vision?) What? Stop it! That’s just the black critics, the white ones who find issue with this…
Not everyone in the African-American community loved Black Panther for a variety of reasons, and that’s fine.
You get out.

....and appreciated only by Carl Lewis, who joyously moved to second place on the list of worst national anthem renditions ever.
When white women justify voting for Trump by saying “I didn’t vote for Hillary” (redacted)
The people that need to be in these discussions won’t show up because they DGAF. I say to them to stay the hell away then, and the ones who do show up, lets get with making things right between us black women and men because we’re all we’ve got.
I honestly don’t know how this became Killmonger vs. Nakia when that fool Erik was a threat to everyone in Wakanda.
I’m displeased with the title, so we’re even.
this movie had 9 million black women in it, fighting, kicking major ass, representing the culture to the highest of highs and Nakia and Okoye were the vanguards. Just because some people are claiming #TeamKillmonger that doesn’t at all diminish those 9 million black women in the slightest, IMO nor could Killmonger…
...couldn’t even go a week.
Oh look, another random race based incident in an American business establishment.
Nakia’s way was, of course, the more proper way to go about making change, without a doubt. Just because I say that that Killmonger had some valid points, that is not being apologetic or justifying his path of destruction to get to the Wakandian throne.
Wakanda itself may not be a real place, but the magic and wonder that Black Panther presents itself is. It’s the magic and wonder that all black people know we’re more than capable of creating in the world when we come together and rally behind a cause and it’s something that can never be celebrated enough
Hey. Big fan of your articles. I just wish I didn’t have to wade through the comments section over there (especially since I’m greyed out there, too) to find a comment that isn’t insulting to a black mentality.
