I waited until I thought the hype had died down about Black Panther to create a blog entry about it. However, the hype is not gone. Just yesterday I posted on my Facebook status that 'WAKANDA IS NOT REAL'! I feel like I posted that I wanted to assassinate 45 because of the feedback I received. I was not expecting to get so much feedback. I mean, Wakanda is not real ...you know that...right?!
Well, I guess I'm a dream killer because I'm a dark skin woman that lives in ugh, REALITY! KUDOS to Black Panther for breaking records on ticket sales. My only thing is, there is a lot of controversy around the movie but for why? I have my fellow African Americans challenging my blackness because I have some disagreements with the movie. Last time I checked I was entitled to my own opinion.
PLEASE! Do not scream you are more woke than I am if you never did anything to help your community or the people in it!! Don’t scream you are more ‘woke’ than me if you are still fighting white supremacy !! Fact is, ALL LIVES MATTER!
It’s 2018!!!! slavery, oppression and many other fucked up things happened many many years ago!!! the only way we can get passed that is to look FOWARD!! I’m not trying to live in the past. The more we linger in the past the more we become the past. Have you ever experienced staying with someone after they have cheated on you? Well, then you should also know that when you continue to bring up what they did to hurt you that you will never have a successful future with that person.
Kudos to you because you know your history like the back of your hand ....NOW DO SOMETHING WITH THAT KNOWLEDGE AND CHANGE THE REAL WORLD! Wakanda is not real!! But America damn sure is ! And you alll live in it !! BIG FACTS!!
I have white friends, Mexican friends, Italian friends , Jewish friends , black friends , Puerto Rican friends and more....we don’t all understand each other but the main thing is WE ATTEMPT TO LEARN AND EDUCATE OURSELVES ON EACH OTHERS HISTORY AND BACKGROUND!!
Just take your intimate relationship for example (no matter the race ) 2 people who are in a relationship are usually totally different people ....they learn to live with one another without any problems ...it’s called EVOLVING and TRANSCENDING !!! The world needs that in order to grow.
I love being black and wouldn’t change it for the world (technically if I wanted to change that I couldn’t 🤷🏾♀️) but if I continue to hate another race because of the past then how can I teach my kids otherwise ???
Willie Lynch wanted us to do that .....hate each other....hate our own race .....Black Panther got Black people hating on each other and fighting ...FOR WHY?!?! Wakanda is this same fucked up society we live in today. Welcome!
