@Browsing.... Well, for your 'white only country' you had Adolf Hitler... the leader of the Nazi party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Fuhrer of Germany from 1934 to 1945. Meanwhile, you still have the kkk, skinheads, neo nazi groups, institutional & systematic racism in the USA (as well as racial discriminaton against non white folk) & all around the world.... Stop being greedy, there are other people (non white people of color) who exist in this world... besides, white folk continue to control the narrative in so many places, in so many ways. Stop whining & acting insecure (with low self- esteem) over a movie. That's stupid.

Just saw the movie and I must say it was amazing. The amount of fierce/strong women in this film was breathtaking✊🏾 #WAKANDAFOREVER
Derek Horton (1 year ago)
Completely 100% loved it! Although here's another BP movie....Nakia exiting the tribe with intent on revenge or trying to kill Storm after the Royal wedding....just thinking off the top of my head. But at the same time a villainous powerful black female would be sick.
Kheru Djhuti (1 year ago)
You mean ONE of the Hausa LANGUAGES. If you don't call European languages dialects, we should not do it to African languages, and the Hausas are 7 peoples. They don't speak one language. The original writer of Black Panther is non African--as is the name and real civilization of Wakanda, which is NATIVE AMERICAN btw.

Black people we need to make a lot of all black movies we are sick of hearing white people talk about us as if they know us and they don't!
Ms. Und3rst00d (1 year ago)
James Darby I believe that they DO know who we are. This is why they behave in a nefarious manner towards blacks. They know we are great. They are jealous! Case in point, every time we stand up and accomplish something, some white person has to always pull black on black crime statistics out of their asses. Never mind that the racist media makes it seem as if blacks are all criminals while white crime statistics are hushed up. You know a white person committed a crime when their picture or name is omitted in the news bulletin.

Browsing I mean Id still watch that if was made by marvel
21Saywhat21 (1 year ago)
Browsing What you're boasting about was stolen from other cultures though lol. If you'd expand your mind, and actually research beyond fabricated stories told in grade school and textbooks that glorify European culture...you'd be quite surprised how much was NOT actually created by whites, Greeks, Romans, etc but simply stolen from other cultures/people or shared during exploration, trade, or from simply raping & pillaging other cultures. Cases upon cases of minorities being murdered or "disappearing, commited suicide or having inexplicable deaths" for inventions that were about to go public in the modern world (and even in history)...and someone else taking credit for their work/designs and surpriiiiise they happen to be white lol...kind of like how whites preach how they built America but fail to mention it was on the backs of slaves...whites have access to major land and farms NOT tended to by their own hands but took the profit and the harvest, sitting on wealth and profits NOT earned by their own hands. Claiming cultures, creativity and designs NOT conceived with their own minds. There's plenty of black inventors, artists, sculptors/architects etc...but if you were OWNED...then of course the "master" got the credit. Plenty of scholars, doctors, inventors after slavery and before slavery but if a particular race/culture tried to conquer another race/culture & pretty much write them out of history and keep them oppressed not only are their successes going to be written out of history, along with their culture, but more than likely history will be told from a biased point of view. But you don't want to learn anything that may shake up the foundation of your precious "culture." You'd rather perpetuate the fictitious bullshit that solidifies the idea of your "dominance and superiority." What's even more ironic is you have people like the original poster here or other black people minding their business and praising the fact that their culture or African culture in general gets a positive representation and the original poster didn't even put down YOUR "culture" but as a "superior" white you feel so threatened by the unity that you felt compelled to assert your "white dominance." You decide to defend your "culture" to us supposedly lowly, skill-less creatures. Who are trying to convince your worth to? It certainly doesn't seem like us. It's quite hilarious how your kind operates.

The irony is that black Africa never managed to create any technology..."that's what a history book is for"...seems so since all white Western countries are being swamped by poor unskilled blacks from Africa...the future will not allow any all white country...in fact whites now make up a minority for the world's population whereas in 1900, whites made up 37%... now it's 6%... enjoy whites and all their created technology, art, medicines, culture etc while you can, because no other race was able to to what whites achieved in a couple of hundreds of years.

They only speak in the Hausa "dialect"? Hausa is not a "dialect". It's a language spoken by 60 million people all over west africa.

in the comics, yes, but in the movie they speak a south african language not hausa

Why the heck make all these "Strong, Smart Women..." just bred-up to SERVE as Wives, Body Guards-with-Benefits and even Chauffeurs for the "King" Men? THIS is the Future? .....sounds like sexist old hat STILL thriving, even while trying to "fight" the OTHER evil of RACISM with an almost all-black cast. Hey!

It is African culture. Read about the Dahomey Amazons of west Africa.
muntu1221 (1 year ago)
Dee Jay Oh my goodness, you're not going to learn everything about them from a 3 minute video, there's way more to them. For one, Wakanda is a country heavily influenced by ancient traditions going back over ten thousand years. A common problem T'Challa must face is finding out which traditions he should continue and which he should change. The Dora Milaje have actually gone against simply being tools for the crown. Second thing, they're not the only people raised to serve the king! There are men and women living in servitude for the king, and many of them do so because they love and respect T'Challa because of he earned their trust. Third, the Dora Milaje are based on female-based military regimes in Africa. Wakanda still has royal powers, a working theocracy, and closed borders. As advanced as they are, they are still connected to their past. This video even says they're challenging traditions. Lastly, they're royal guards! They're _meant_ to serve their country and king, even if they were men. They're meant to marry the king to have worthy people in power. They're not just whores, they're highly respected leaders, teachers, and all maintain their importance and power when the king dies. In fact, the last two queens weren't even in the Dora Milaje, and they were still greatly respected by their people.

They were great. i envisioned my self in the movie as one of the elders who walked with a cane..and in my younger years i was also a trained fighter..i see a part in the flim where iam attacked in my 5os ..but this grandmother has a secret surprise in her cane..cant wait to see myself in Black panther 2.

I was hoping they would add a factoid. That these women are based on the Dahomey Women Warroris of Dahomey (West Africa).
Jenjen 100000 (4 months ago)
You are right, I am yet to see an interview where it is pointed out that the Dora Milaje is based on fact, the French referred to them as the  Dahomey Amazons because they reminded them of the Greek mythological Amazons, however, they were called Mino by the Dahomey which means "our mothers".
BlackBullRising facts and Queen nzinga out of Zimbabwe
Hey Stopthat (1 year ago)
V.A. D-R truth!!! They'll never acknowledge those facts! They love perpetuate the myth that Africa is a barbaric hellhole......but you know what, maybe it's good that way. The reason I say that, is as soon as the White folk realize how beautiful Africa truly is, they'll be back to colonize it and snatch it away and gentrify it. It's already bad enough they come to poach the animals into exitinction.
Hey Stopthat (1 year ago)
I was going to comment the same thing! It's what makes them so much more inspiring! It speaks so much more to me as a Black Woman as I watched the film!! I loved this movie!!
V.A. D-R (1 year ago)
Does anyone ever tell the truth about Africa or African history? Shit, they White-wash all of African history. Egypt is like the world of Pyramids when the Sudan has the most Pyramids. Also Sudan and Ethiopia ruled over Egypt for Centuries---yup---no one knows that either. sigh....
