Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

These selected comments are from the discussion thread for the video entitled "Africans Reacting to Marvels Black Panther Movie - NO SPOILERS". These quotes are given without any editorial comments from me, except to indicate where profanity was given with asterisks in this compilation but not in the original comment.

I recognize that other people might select another YouTube video (or several other YouTube videos) and their discussion thread/s. And I understand that other people might select different comments than the ones that I selected from the discussion thread for the video that is embedded in this post.

Some of these comments in this compilation are from people who identified themselves as Africans or who identified themselves as African Americans. Some other comments are from people who identified themselves as from the Caribbean, and some comments are from people who gave no national, continental identification, but can be assumed to be Black because of the content of their comments.

A considerable number of comments in that Africans Reacting to Marvels Black Panther Movie - NO SPOILERS" discussion thread were from White people operating as "trolls". These people posted comments that were stereotypical, racist, sarcastic, and/or belittling. Included among these comments were references to Black people as baboons, comments encouraging Black people to go back to Africa, and comments that referred to Black languages as "ooga booga". I've included a few of these trolling comments for historical and socio-cultural purposes.

"I will start celebrating when we start telling our own stories on the big screen. This isn't a critical or impactful moment as a lot of people are trying to make it out to be. Feels kinda pathetic that a white guy wrote this story and another white guy illustrated him and black people are celebrating it as if this is a monumental moment. It's as if we still have no power over our lives and destiny, you can only celebrate when white people decides to give you the spotlight. It's starting to seem to me too many of us just want to sit back, complain about racial and systematic injustices, and wait for white people to do something about it, hoping they change their ways. Because they don't believe in themselves. Because they've surrendered to white power/superiority. This movie means pretty much nothing for black people and Africa. And I bet a large percentage of this movies sales is going to be from black people. And all the money is also not going to the black community. Only impact this movie might have is focusing attention on why Africa, with all it's different, plentiful, and unique resources doesn't look like Wakanda. And maybe from those questions there will be more calls for a push for change. Lets tell our own stories on the big screens. We got a lot of them (epic and real ones). And lets make Africa great again."

We must learn to see the good in all things whether they come from our hands or from the hands of the oppressors. The world is watching and its time for us to make an example of ourselves and showcase the true nature of our people, our cause and our mighty potential. Being Ghanaian I can proudly say that this movie has fueled the dialogue needed within our communities to invoke change. The sleeping giant is about to rise from her slumber!"

20. Kervin Puckett, February 19, 2018
"First off, the movie and character pull mainly from Christopher Priest’s run who is credited as truly defining and creating Black Panther as we know him. True, white men had their hands on him first and who cares? He was not popular until a black man wrote and drew him, and it has been written and drawn by black men ever since. Get your hate straight dumb dumb."

21. GhanaianFoundingFather'sDaughter, February 18, 2018
"Some say it's just a fantasy movie so we must get over it. But we've seen them draw inspiration from movies that portrayed their peoples for decades, while we the POAD(People of African descent) support their box office turnout and growth without complaining while supporting them.
So my question is this...why would a people whose very identity and global relevance have for centuries been fueled and sustained on the negation and denigration of the African continent and anything connected or extracted from it, dictate to us #POAD, about how we should feel and behave where the movie Black Panther is concerned?

"That was great to see. I was wondering how my brothers and sisters on mainland felt about the movie and I'm encouraged by their responses. My 2 cents is that this reminds us of our commection. We in the diaspora are still sons and daughters of Africa. By force the connection was broken, but I feel like this movie can inspire us to remember that we are one, and that we can begin to behave that way."

38. Rocky Mountain Rob, February 18, 2018
"I really liked this video. It made me happy. Great job, it was wonderful to see African people beaming about this. Yes, to see people portrayed in such a light is refreshing. I just get tired of hollywood typical black stereotypical portrayals of Blacks as Gangsta's or Slaves (i know there's more, Tyler Perry comes to mind...he's putting out good movies...but), as if there's only two points of interest and little else. Black Panther really hits it out of the park. I LOVE the fashion, not just in the movie, but the people seeing the movie. Good stuff."

"I like how one of the movie goers is talking about diversity ect.. while wakanda the fictional perfect utopia had none, no one is allowed in, it has borders, no refugees allowed , it's an ethnostate lol. It was an ok movie but I prefer balde"

"It's sad that the Africans in this video are so eager to be acknowledged by the mainstream that they are mostly ignoring what's wrong with this movie. The one guy was pretty accurate and concise. He said "it's like they are massaging the African ego"
If you, as a black person can totally ignore some of the brainwashing going on in this movie, It's actually pretty good, (as far as Disney movies go)..."

"Peace 1
Nobody's ego needs to be massaged if they are self aware.
It at least takes a little bit more than a child to figure this out.
Africans have Africans to build confidence in who they are. The whole movement for African independence is to be independent. Financially, mentally, and (spiritually)!
Feeding egos only leads to egoism. Just look at white society for reference."

"J Bezzie yes african egos need to be deeply massaged. They lack basic confidence. Thats why this is celebrated. And this will inspire black youth to be amazing future artists. Every child deserves a relatable superheroe. πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ❤"

"The sister at 3:04 from Nigeria, she stated it perfectly! The brothers following her were also on point. It really was nice to see the diversity WITHIN africa as well as the diaspora, and to see us in great roles vs. yet another slave movie (nothing against portraying our truth and obstacles we've faced but enough!). I'm almost 56 years old and to see Africa portrayed beautifully, in fact, what it could have been without colonization (and what it still can be) is ..something I never thought I would have seen in my lifetime (plus I've been reading Black Panther comic book for about 30 years)."

"Black Panther just corrected the mistakes of the movie "gods of Egypt". Cant wait to see Part 2 of this with a taste of the Ashanti kingdom sprinkled on it. Nice one."

"Why did use a south African language if wakanda is where Uganda and Tanzania is in real life? Shouldn't they had used Swahili?"

  1. Click https://docs.google.com/document/d/19wRga_SppkMxLazphpLE4B9GGUtoufGHNSrSavEjXbs/edit for an online copy of an unofficial* Black Panther Film Movie Companion for Middle Grades by [African American teacher] Tess Raser

    According to Ms. Raser, the curriculum is designed for "Grades: 5th-8th (works for high school too)"

    Here's the preface to that curriculum:
    "This curriculum is designed for students who are seeing Black Panther, as a means to having them engage more critically and thoughtfully with the film. The curriculum assumes that students, like mine, have previous experience of studying the African continent, its diversity and colonialism."

    That curriculum is free, but at least one blogger suggest that people send money to the dope [wonderful] teacher who wrote it.

  2. Watch Black Panther at yidio movies :A great addition to the MCU. Great acting, beautiful visuals and some intense action. First impressive thing I noticed was its rich attention to detail in world building and its characters. My only criticism, I would have like to have seen more of the Killmonger character, as I feel they didn't go far enough with him. Over-all, this is a fun and enjoyable movie with action, comedy, drama. There are some complex social political overtones mixed in, but it never feels heavy handed, and I feel that the over-all message is positive for humanity as a whole. If this type of movie isn't your cup of tea, fair enough, but if you are on the fence about watching due to pre-conceived notions about its content and message, I would recommend you give it a try, and I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
