“Questioners are ‘hoteps’ who are too woke to have fun.”

The desire to see a black face in a high place is a legacy of slavery and the century of Jim Crow segregation that followed. The psychological impact of America’s apartheid is enduring, and unlikely to end without true revolutionary change.

Black people are loath to do anything that might dim the luster that emanates when one of the group becomes rich, famous or successful in some realm that was hitherto off limits. Celebrities, athletes, CE

"Get Me Out of Wakanda": Articles and Analysis of Black Panther Movie
It's been at least a week now that the hype over Wakanda has crescendoed.  The movie seems to have taken the world by storm, and I do mean the entire world.  However, we do know that what is reported is not necessarily what is really happening, all we gotta do is look at the last US presidential election cycle to see that numbers and polls can be flubbed and flipped to fit a narrative.  What we can be sure of is that with the a
