Black Pigeon On Black Panther

I like YouTuber Black Pigeon Speaks and watch most of his videos. He wouldn't pass many ideological sniff-tests from the alt-right but still he posts interesting and often useful links, in spite of his weird anger toward religion. He fired up a new one today on the upcoming Black Panther movie and why it should actually appeal to the alt-right.

This seems weird at first. Looking at Tweets referencing "Black Panther movie" is a litany of people explaining why this is the greatest movie ever, even though it doesn't come out until next year. One person, Nomaris Garcia Rivera, wrote perhaps the most unintentionally hilarious piece that wasn't intended as satire when she posted: The ‘Black Panther’ Trailer Shows What Africa Would Have Been If White People Didn’t Destroy It. Yep. According to her:
That right there in just two minutes drops the trope of defenseless Africans who need help and shows what African countries could have been without its colonization. Where instead of showing a story of a white hero who comes to aid the people it shows those who have hidden their culture to keep it safe.
Wow, she gets that all from a trailer. We wuz superhero kangz! A two minute trailer unravels the historical reality of Africa and what has happened anywhere blacks employ self-rule (i.e. Haiti, Liberia, Detroit...). You can't make this stuff up. But BPS makes the point in this video that the movie really makes the case the alt-right makes. Here is the video:

White nationalism is at the core about self-determination. I don't want to harm or enslave blacks or Hispanics. I am all for each ethnicity, race and religion having their own homelands. If blacks think they would be better off in their own homelands, I agree! That is at the center of black nationalism just as it is at the center of White nationalism. The idea that blacks would live in some utopia if only the White man had left them alone is obviously and demonstrably false but if that is the fantasy they believe, more power to 'em!

I support the creation of a real Wakanda where blacks can be free to rule themselves as they see fit in Africa. I would just ask that Whites are afforded the same privilege.
