HATERS TRY AND FAIL TO SABOTAGE THE SUCCESS OF THE MOVIE THE BLACK PANTHER

By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

The Marvel superhero film “Black Panther” has already broken Hollywood records in its first week. It has grossed more than $400 million worldwide, it also broke the record for a February opening, which was previously held by “Deadpool” and it is now the largest opening for a move with an African-American director.

Yet, that success of this movie, which could gross upwards to a billion dollars was not one hundred percent guaranteed.

Just as tens of millions of diverse people were exciting to see this movie about a fictional African kingdom called Wakanda, in which the film’s creators borrowed aspects from real African culture, like the Masai of Kenya and the ancient African empire of Mali. There were a lot of people; minor in comparison who were upset and fearful of this celebration of real African culture in this fictional kingdom. Some even took to social media and posted fake post about being attacked violently by angry black people.

Despite all the effort by many haters, naysayers and racists, this movie was an extreme success. I would rate this film a 9 and a half out of ten. A must see movie.

By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

A police officer in Jackson, Georgia who made-up a story about being shot by a black man faces four felony charges, including giving false statements to police, because on September 13, police officer Sherry Hall claimed that while on patrol around 12am, according to her report she saw a” 6ft tall, 230 lbs black man wearing a green shirt and black jogging pants”, loitering on the side of the street.

She claimed that “after she exited the vehicle, he became very argumentative” which led to him pulling out a gun and shooting her in the lower part of her vest.

As the Georgia Bureau of Investigation started to investigate officer Hall’s case, her story immediately began to unravel, it soon became obviously to them that officer Hall fabricated the entire story, no doubt placing the well-being of many black men in that area, in danger of cops seeking retribution for a fellow officer, who they believed was wounded in the line of duty. According to the Root.com GBI Special Agent in Charge Joe Wooten said: ” the investigation revealed that there is, and never was , a suspect at large in Jackson, Georgia. ”
