You know, I do have plans to travel to the African Continent once again, perhaps to Ethiopia, Rwanda,
Angola, Accra, Ghana, or South Africa. If I should ever chose an airline to travel to Africa, it might
as well be Ethiopian Airlines. I am sure that they would treat me way better than United Airlines.

Yeah, North America is so racist. I'm gonna go to a place without such ethnic division.

Oof.

Ouch.

Just ethnic cleansing and genocide. No getting kicked off flights.

Phew!

Yes, I wonder how many of these BLM people identifying as 'Afrikan' rather than American would actually want to live in any of these places.

They could try to move there. They'd be ethnically cleansed within a month, though.

If Wakanda was real they would move there.

I'm pretty sure not. If Wakanda were real, I'm fairly certain it would have some very stringent immigration requirements.

I haven't even seen the movie because I don't look to comic books for political philosophy, but I can say this- I wish everyone would STFU about Wakanada or whatever it is.

Live in the real world, not some dumb Marvel Universe crap.

And they probably wouldn't be taking in many refugees either.

In the movie, Wakanda is a black nationalist ethnostate that doesn't allow immigration. In its fictional history, its leaders made a deal with other world powers to ignore the slave trade and the colonizing of other African nations so long as Wakanda got left alone. Kind of ironic that black people would want to move there....

Nope. 

The lack of legal knowledge regarding flying is pretty blatant here.   The airline did nothing wrong.

Perhaps if it had not been for all the negative portrayals of black people in
movies, we would not be chanting Wakanda forever. Look at how many
black actors won Oscars for taking on negative stereotypical roles. Makes
me wish that Wakanda was for real so I would be more successful than
Killmonger to use that Vibranuim to cause some destruction.

How long are you going to keep trotting out that black people are negatively represented in Hollywood line? In the last Oscars they were over represented proportionately and how many of those roles were bad guys? Compared to the number of Brits who have been portrayed as bad guys for example? How many Hollywood movies have there been about evil white guys and slavery? Nobody buys it any more.

I feel less cool about someone supporting a fictional terrorist than I thought I would.

It's a comic book and a fantasy land. Obsessing over it is the sdefinition of useless and pointless. Between that and the idiots that think 'The Handmaid's Tale' is real, it's no wonder the Republicans win. You draw or act it, they vote and build it.

Do you remember Denzel Washington wining an Oscar for best acting in the movie "Training Day?"
That was winning for taking a role that deplores black men.

Do you remember when Denzel won his first oscar for Glory?  or the 6 nominations he has received for various other films?  Surely they can't all deplore black people... And what is wrong with taking a deplorable part?  Christoph Waltz played a deplorable Nazi in Inglorious Basterds, does that mean Tarantino hates white people or Germans?

You sound very anti white in almost alll your posts.  When did you become a racist?

I don't get your point. Are you saying that black guys shouldn't play evil black guys in films? Would you prefer it if they were played by white guys blacked up? Or do you want there to be no bad black characters in any Hollywood films? Even Wakanda had an evil black character in it, didn't it?

How could anyone forget. Deplorable, maybe, but also very well spoken~
