By now, we will have all heard about the latest Marvel movie, Black Panther. It has been seized upon by the left as a groundbreaking tour de force for Black Americans that should be seen by ALL! But are they missing the point?
With a leftist media desperate to make everything about Donald Trump (negatively), are they perhaps reading too much into this? For example, Fortune writes:
“Contrary to the vocal sloganeers who want to make America great (a.k.a. white) again, the Other America—people of color and white Americans who reject Trump’s bigotry—is hungry for a convincing narrative to oppose white nativism.
Enter Marvel’s new film, Black Panther. The movie, appropriately being released during Black History Month, offers a powerful counternarrative to Trumpism at a crucial moment in black American history.”
So it offers a “Counternarrative to Trumpism” does it? A quick reality check shows that it does not.
IN fact, when looked at objectively…
- The fictional country in which Black Panther is set, Wakanda, does not allow immigrants and therefore protects its wealth…
- It exploits its natural resources, thereby becoming a rich and developed nation.
- The main star (King T’Challa, also Black Panther), thinks that his native people, Wakandans, should come first…”Wakanda First!”
- The bad guy in the movie wants to tear the whole thing down…JUst like BLM!
This movie actually supports Donald Trump…Why can't the left see this?
