VINDICATION!!! BLACK PANTHER SHATTERS BOX OFFICE RECORDS!!! CORPORATE MEDIA MULTICULTURALISM STAYS WINNING OVER AMERICA FIRST POLITICS?!?!
It was a historic week for American cinema as Kansas City youngsters were part of a massive effort to bring people to theaters in order to celebrate racial "progress" in the media industry and a nebulous political message that mostly just served to bolster a corporate bottom line.
Let's make it local . . . Here is the funniest take on Black Panther from a social media denizen with more friends & followers than most local pundits:
More to the point:
Amid all the hype around the superhero extravaganza, there aren't many reviews which actually claims it's a good movie.
TKC cynical takeaway . . .
Social justice warriors can't or won't see beyond the screen and don't realize that racial politics were really just exploited over the weekend so that one of the world's biggest media corporations earned a tidy profit for a movie without much of a plot, staring C-list actors and featuring run-of-the-mill special effects.
Spoiler alert . . . Brighter minds than those ranting among our TKC blog community have actually taken the film apart from a progressive perspective.
Nevertheless, the Monday victory for this movie is actually garnered by Disney shareholders who value green more than any color celebrated by race-obsessed American audiences.
