Triggerhappy: Black panther by KukuruyoArt Triggerhappy: Black panther by KukuruyoArt

(Versión española)

With the upcoming release of the movie about the superhero Black panther, we are seeing again the buildup of the already typical narrative that if you didn’t like the movie it’s because you’re a racist. We saw the same thing with ghostbusters, when a narrative was built claiming that every single person who didn’t like the film was sexist, and we have seen it since with various movies whenever they have a female or minority cast. It’s a way to deflect any criticism of the movie and excuse its failure by blaming the viewers with false accusations. Because, you know, the only possible reason to not like a blockbuster movie is because you hate women or minorities, it can’t possibly be because these movies are usually as simple as a lolipop. I’m not saying the movie will be bad; i’ve liked a few superhero movies, like the Iron man ones, or Wonder woman, but most of them are only worth for a 2 hours mild entertainment that i promptly forget.

In this case it has reached a point where Rotten tomatoes has threatened to ban people who give the movie a bad review if they think the review is hate speech. This would not be bad on itself until you consider how today everything under the sun is considered hate speech, and how some are already claiming that any negative review of the movie is racism. To prove this point, after one critic gave the movie a bad review, journalists, twitters and bloggers have been smearing that person for daring to give a bad review to a black movie, with headlines as wonderful as “Trump’s America Spoils Black Panther’s 100% Rotten Tomatoes score” or “Black panther is for movies what Barak obama was for politics”, arguing, like many are doing, that Black panther is the first blockbuster movie in history with a black protagonist, ignoring tons of movies like Blade, spawn, shaft, catwoman, men in black, Coming to America, etc. But the greatest claim of them all, is the one that the article in the comic, and some people in twitter, have made that Africa would be an ultra futuristic billionaire continent if it wasn’t for white people. Last time i checked a history book, Africa was already a pretty bad place when white people came arround, and their technological level wasn’t exactly state of the art. By that logic, Spain, which was occupied by the moors for almost 800 years, would be an ultra futuristic country if it wasn’t for them, and it should be as poor as Africa is right now. Instead, we are a normal European first world nation, and we were at a time the most powerful nation in the world.

The funniest thing about all of this, is that Wakanda, the fictional country that the movie is set on (and one some people believe is real), was actually in the comics an ultranationalistic state, with a big big wall surrounding it, that refuses any kind of inmigration or even tourism. T’chala is far, far more nationalistic and isolationist than Trump has ever been, to the point that the alt-right is making the joke that “he’s one of them”. And they’re probably not wrong.

Can we? The negative arent done by us its done by other people, people who will see you and i racist for not liking a black actor, people whose heads are faor up their ass, they wont change wheather you kindly or rudly(like how kukuruyoart does with prpogranda like comics) they likely wont change. The only people listening are people in already argeeing, not the ones your trying to get yhe attention, they wont understand, if they wont learn, forget them. And with this artists case enough never enough

he talked about that lady i cant remember, the one abput video games causing violence, she called her a hypocrite even when nobody cared, after she was done n may have changed her opinion.


theirs should be a limit when you point out negatives.....for these people, its way past the time to stop caring, if they shall not listen.... then give them something they dread, silence, give them no acknowledgement

Black Panther is (in a Meta sense) the funniest movie ever made.
Consider: before the film was released the SJW crowd declared that the film was the best thing ever because it was a blockbuster featuring a majority black cast. (Lucky for everyone that BP was really good)
The ironic thing is that the film comes across as an accidental love letter to Trump, and Trump supporters. Think about it- The Good guys are all isolationists, they are all opposed to allowing refugees into their country, they are opposed to trade with the outside, and they're all nationalists (to varying degrees). the bad guy meanwhile is a complete Social Justice Warrior (both literally and figuratively) and a black nationalist who sees Africans he's never met as being more his people than the Americans he's grown up alongside, largely because of skin color. The film grants that he has some valid points, but at the end of the day his worldview is what the good guys are fighting to stop.

I'm kind of blown away that the accidental promotion of Trump style values in this movie haven't gotten more attention.

I saw the film, it doesn't even make that claim.  It is more like: What one part of Africa would look like if it had control of a magic metal from space and a terrestrial god who forced people into compliance.  People who write speculative, agenda-pushing articles based on advertisements for products are idiots whatever they say.

It pisses me off how they push it:
1. <to T'challa> "You're not responsible for your father's or ancestors' deeds."
2. <to Ross> "Don't scare me like that COLONIZER." (because hurr durr white people)
Both sentences of Shuri. They probably didn't even notice the hypocrisy behind it. Literally "It's only OK when we do it".

And Killmonger who was accusing and blaming everyone around for his shitty life while he and his father were the only ones to cause it.

Wakandans, who did nothing to help their kin, are now talking? HA!

But the movie was sold just right. Slavery, colonising, shitting on white people - that's how you make typical SJW to wet their pants and beg for more.

I don´t deny that there is people who will dismiss any form of criticims towards the movie as racism.
But on the other hand it is one thing giving a work of art proper criticism on it´s technical aspects.
It´s an entirely different thing to base your criticisms solely on weird over analysis of subtext that´s probably not there, not made on purpose, unimportant or entirely open for interpretation.

Is it adequate to call someone racist because the extent of their thoughts and criticisms towards any work of fiction that plays by its own rules sums to "This is SJW propaganda because they force diversity into the cast and it´s unrealistic that women/minorities would be presented this way"?

Is it fair to call an opinion of a work of art "hate speech" when that opinion makes the argument that any character of "X" or "Y" demographic should abide to a certain set of rules or that it is a problem that said demographic is even presented in the first place?
I don´t know, it seems pretty vague, over simplistic and specific of a criticism but maybe that´s just me.
I guess the days when people watched superhero flicks for fun are over man.

It´s the same dilema of Wolfenstein 2 all over again. 

I´m not making the argument that people who say all negative criticism towards these movies are a form of racism are correct.
I´m just pointing out that you seem to forget that not all negative criticism have a solid valid basis.

Although you are still right about the fact that Africa would have very much have been the exact same thing even if Africa was never occupied by foreigners of that continent.

So at least we agree on some things.

Odds are Africa on average would probably be worst without colonization. The real legacy of colonialism is that Western ideas were introduced to Africa and that many countries rejected them utterly good and bad. You'll notice that the countries that didn't have blame the whites and get rid of them campaigns do far better like the Ivory Coast and Botswana.

However, I agree that Black Panther is NOT an accurate portrayal of what Africa would have been like.

But my point is that Black Panther would NOT stand with the Alt-Righters NOR the SJWs, for reasons that I already explained in another comment of mine.

If anything, Black Panther's more of a Moderate Conservative.

To be honest, Black Panther himself wanted to end the ultranationalist policies of Wakanda, hence why Black Panther trusts foreigners to the point of letting them in (why do you think Captain America and Bucky were allowed in Wakanda?), MUCH UNLIKE most other Wakandans.

"hence why Black Panther trusts foreigners to the point of letting them in"
he trusts specific people, like cap and the avengers 
but foreigners in general he doesn't.
example in the comic the ultimates  
here is the cover so you can see which one
i.annihil.us/u/prod/marvel/i/m…

he built a ground base for the new Alpha flight squad in Washington DC, the entire place was place was staffed by people from Wankanda, as well his honor guard.

Actually, I am NOT referring to Ultimate!Black Panther, I am referring to Movie!Black Panther as well as the original 616!Black Panther.

marvel.wikia.com/wiki/T%27Chal… (the guy that allows Captain America and Winter Soldier into his home and also willingly works with other superheroes that are not from his country while he's outside of his country).

marvel.wikia.com/wiki/T%27Chal… (the guy that worked with multiple superheroes and even joined superhero teams foreign to Wakanda in order to defend both his home and other countries, and even fell in love with somebody foreign to Wakanda -cough Storm cough-.)

He'd be the kind of guy that only allows visitors that legally traveled and legal immigrants to enter Wakanda.

In other words, aside from the monarchy, Black Panther's more of a moderate conservative, if anything.

Ultimate is original as it takes place in the main marvel universe.
 
Yes black panther works with the avengers
but doesn't open his country to other country's.

in fact even the movie version doesn't have open borders or immigration, all he is doing is now working with others.

Yes, but 616 universe and Ultimate universe started out as separate, and Ultimate Black Panther and 616 Black Panther are still separated versions of a character just like how Movie Black Panther is yet another seperate version of Black Panther.

I never said anything about "Black Panther opening borders", I'm only pointing out that since both Movie and 616 Black Panther are willing to work with foreign heroes, allow some foreigners into his country (some, NOT all), and both are even work outside their country, that proves that both 616 Black Panther and Movie Black Panther are NOT ultranationalists, but they are actually moderate nationalists and moderate conservatives.

Heck, 616 Black Panther is even willing to have legal immigrants (NOT illegal), eg. Storm, into his country, which further proves that 616 Black Panther is more of a moderate conservative and also more of a moderate nationalist.

Also, 616 Black Panther joined other superhero teams other than The Avengers, such as the Fantastic Four, Marvel's heroic version of the Illuminati (I do NOT believe in the Illuminati, I am just pointing out that Marvel made their own version of the Illuminati), and the Knights of Pendragon, further showing that 616 Black Panther is tolerant of some foreigners.

Also, Movie Black Panther allows Captain America into his country as a visitor and Winter Soldier into his country for protection from Tony Stark and Tony's team, which implies that Movie Black Panther is becoming tolerant to some foreigners.

With all that being pointed out, I can therefore confirm that Movie Black Panther and 616 Black Panther are both moderate conservatives and moderate nationalists.

"Yes, but 616 universe and Ultimate universe started out as separate"
not anymore the link i posted was from the latest comic taking place in the main 616.
the ultimates are in 616.

Yes he is willing to work with but again those are individuals.
not nations or cultures inside his home country.

"

yes i know, but again those are individuals, not populations or countries.

again supporting my point on him supporting individuals.

The Ultimates are only in 616 due to a mass crossover that combined universe. And 616 Black Panther and Ultimate Black Panther are still separate counterparts, exactly like how Movie Black Panther is another separate counterpart.

"Yes he is willing to work with but again those are individuals.

True, but he allows his allies to have positive opinions about their countries just as much as he loves his.

"Yes i know, but again those are individuals, not populations or countries."
But he's still tolerant to foreigners either way. Even though those foreigners are NOT an entire country, those foreigners are still a population of people in the sense that they are a group.

"again supporting my point on him supporting individuals."
It's called character development.

But again 
in the comics. its only one black panther, not talking about any other black panther.

"True, but he allows his allies to have positive opinions about their countries just as much as he loves his."
but that is there opinions, not about his county's polices, of closed borders, no immigration, which in the comics and movie is still happening.

"
foreigners are still a population of people in the sense that they are a group."
now you are saying individuals represent the group, the avengers, and other superteams do not represent any group, religion, country etc etc.
just because he has a positive opinion on s person does not mean he has the same opinion on group, country etc etc.
as shown in the comics, he still supports a closed border nation.

"
It's called character development."
its still individuals

One thing some people forgot to mention is that another supply of Vibranium can be found in Antarctica.

As well as Tony Stark figured out how to make synthetic Vibranium out of a Paladium isotope.

Much as I love the marvel movies, a lot of the amazing world building the comics have done gets left out of them.

I really get the feeling that a majority, (if not all)
of the racist accusers don't really read comics in the 1st place,
and never even knew who BlackPanther ever was until CA:CW came out.

"Black panther is for movies what Barak Obama was for politics"....how do they mean?
BO was the 1st black president, and BlackPanther was the 1st black super hero.

Well yeah....and what else? Is that it?

Then in that case, it would have been better to say that:
"Barak Obama is for politics what Black panther was for comics"
(because y'know, there were absolutely no fictional black heroes anywhere before 1966)

And if one actually delves into the (fictional) politics of Wakanda,
then you realize that they don't seem to line up with BO's administration durning his 2 terms.
