Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Who I have to deal with.
A few months ago I called out premiere of the Black Panther (Disney) franchise. And for several weeks thereafter surveyed US-Eng. language txt and video reviewers' critiques to gauge the depth of cultural references informing those opinions. The most startling, invidious assumption about African Americans' struggle to exercise their civil rights --1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th, 13th, 14th, 26th, CRA, VRA at "home" and abroad-- I found was this derogatory note from one of the most inane sites on the planet, syndicating "mainstream" culture to collect ad revenue and visitors.

Even so, the film's political themes may prove problematic. Reviewers have written that the movie is "alt-right" (perhaps oblivious of the racial undertones of such a statement) and others have noted that it pays a homage to the political terrorist group the Black Panthers.
O'Neil goes on to furnishe Perez's shallow command ("Perez did not mean anything racist ") of illegitimate "black nationalism" without an iota of irony.
With any luck, this should extend to the brief scene devoted to the Revolutionary Black Panther Party, a far-Left black nationalist socialist group founded in 1992 [!] that claims continuity [!] with the Black Panther Party of the 1960s. The FBI has categorized the original [!] group as militantly subversive for attempting to overthrow the U.S. government by force of arms. ... Despite this homage to the Black Panthers, the movie seems rather politically reactionary. ...Perhaps Perez was more right than he suspected. Even if the movie rejects Wakanda's "alt-right" isolationism, it seems to embrace hereditary monarchy -- something even more conservative than the alt-right.
Now, extrapolate the stupid to world, ppl.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
