On the real what year was this made? If it was the 70s then it makes sense artistically as well as politically. Although the days of mass lynching were long over the 70s was the Decade where it was talked about and discussed with roots etc. So I would say one of the biggest fear for a black person would have been getting lynched. Looking at the character of tchalla even in his luke charles days it makes little sense for him to battle the clan however? :-\

I remember an issue of the Black Panther (way pre-Hudlin), where the Panther actually did fight the kkk. Monica Lynne was featured prominently in that story. As usual for those days, the Panther got roughed up pretty good...but he won regardless.

Obviously Hudlin DID write that. He simply used his DeLorean to go back in time and write that issue under an alias.

ya know.  I don't get how it's OK for writers to deal with race in older BP books, but now now!  It just doesn't make any sense!  When I pick up a book called Black Panther, I'm expecting it to deal with afro-centric issues and race/racism!  Hudlin's not pushing an agenda, but rather writing things from the viewpoint of an african king!

That was a good story. You can probably find the entire story in a dollar bin somewhere. I did.
