‘Black Panther’ is not the movie we deserve

In ‘Black Panther’  is not the movie we deserve, the author talks about how this movie does not help the African American community but rather how black communities how. How black people kill each other and live up to there “standards” of how they are portrayed. “ Black Panther is set on a course to kill off his cousin in his first outing, suggesting yet another racist trope, the fractured black family as a microcosm of the black community’s inability to get it together.” This just shows that this movie was rather more of a hit to the African communities that they can not do anything perfect and that they always fight each other. Another thing the author mentioned was how they turned the character Kill Monger who was left for dead as a child in Oakland when his father was killed by his brother. Kill Monger seemed to be depicted as this hood guy who picked up skills and had only one thing in mind, to kill. His mission or his goal was to use the technology in Wakanda to create this black uprising to kill white people and set black people as this dominate race. In a way this just shows someone who is tired of what’s going on in the world but it also shows just another black individual with murder on his mind who will kill anything that gets in his way from killing the white people and government, even if it means killing African Americans. The last issue the author talked about was how Kill Monger died in this movie but in the comics there were signs of maybe he could last longer but the movie showed otherwise. The authors argument was that a white man like Loki was given plenty of opportunity to redeem himself after he created his fake deaths and continuously lied to his brother. However, in the last movie Avengers infinity war Loki a white character was portrayed as a hero before he finally died while Kill Monger only played in one movie but died not as a hero or a villain. “Loki even gets his turn to be a good guy in the recent Thor: Ragnarok. Loki gets multiple, unearned chances to redeem himself no matter what damage he has done. Killmonger, however, will not appear in another movie.“It really much depended on how you took the story but the arguments the author stated I found to be intresting.


What really interested me was basically everything. Honestly for me I never really thought about any of this, I just thought it was another amazing Avenger movie that had some really great technology and I thought to myself that it was a good thing they hid away from the world because of how greedy it is today. I also knew it was run by a black community which I thought was great but I did not think of it the way the author did but I see now what he said and in a way he is right but it all depends on how we take this story.

    I also didn't think of Black Panther in this way either. I thought it was going to be a regular movie that many people will enjoy and share with their friends. However, Lebron shows many points in his article that portray this movie in a bad way. I liked your summary of your article as it was very detailed and you provided lots of evidence and his many points. Many people were blinded by the fact that it was an Avengers movie and they didn't pay attention to the issues it provided.
