Not Nary Another One...

 

Sick of em

Don't wanna see
not another damned one...

Of them slave movies
Of them sad movies
Of them "triumph of the human spirit over adversity" movies

No Damn More
Please
Of those movies where a man takes Shit from a physical and intellectual inferior, just cuz he needs the job
Or is trying to avoid jail

I want my entertainment to help me forget my shitty reality for 2 hours
Not steep my brain in more BullShit

Captain America fought the "enemy" in World War 2
Wouldn't a Black Panther movie look better if Wakanda aided Zimbabwe during its fight against the Portuguese?
Or assisted Ethiopia and Haille Selassie against Mussolini in World War 2?, when the British balked

Unfortunately
A sovereign nation
with an entire cadre of Super humans battles another, independent and sovereign, nation due to interference and manipulation from a villain who looks like no one in either nation

Well Damn

I know Wakanda and Atlantis are "inventions"
But shouldn't entertainment be relaxing views of the the world one wishes for...

I can go to work on Monday and watch European bosses pit different-colored, but African- rooted, folks who speak English or Spanish against each other for amusement
But keep their own hands clean

Call me when IronHeart and Black Panther get sent back in time to help the Dahomey
Or to help the Zulu at Isandlwana

I'll even take Black Panther's presence defending those children at the Soweto Massacre over Afrikaans
Bet that would make a Hell of an introductory prequel
