You know, Larenz Tate killed it in Gun Hill. He did a god job with the African-American fighting system 52 Blocks...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T89g-DgS-3A

If he could rock a cold African accent? You know what...? He could be TChalla.


Not that I'm mad at Chadwick Boseman, but...we could have gotten a real Afrikan to rock the role of BLACK PANTHER, ya know?

And that's not even saying anything about the staggering heroism of real life heroes living right this very second and fighting this very second in Afrika.

Good find with Gun Hill. I think I'll check it out this weekend. While Chadwick Boseman was not my first choice for Black Panther he does come off fresh and serious acting wise and appears to appreciates diverse characters choices; a quality I think all good actors should posses. I have and never will see Larenz Tate as Tchalla. He will remain Darius Lovehall. ;D

While I think I take your meaning supreme illuminati, unless you are suggesting that genetically he is not Afrakan i.e. he is bi-racial; notwithstanding Chadwick Boseman is a real Afrakan. We are no less authentic being born off the mother continent. Afrakan people were a global people at a time when no other people (so called racial types) existed.

The Kushau of ancient Keneset and Kemet (two of the Hapi valley civilizations in Afraka) traveled to the continent they named Amaruka and and maintained the same traditions o f civilization (communion with the Neteru/Neteretu, building of Meru and Tekenu etc.) as their people and families did in Afraka. The Xiu as they became known over the centuries still maintained contact with the Kushau, still considered themselves the same people. Were there some differences? Of course but nothing that signified a disconnect from their natal origin.

In more recent times due to the all out war on Afrakans through colonization, religious conversion, captivity and enslavement; defining oneself through nationality and citizenship has become very confusing. This is why using terms like American Afrakan, Jamaican Afrakan, British Afrakan, Canadian Afrakan, Nigerian Afrakan, Kenyan Afrakan, Sudanese Afrakan etc. may be useful in defining ethnic and regional distinctions without severing us from one another, our ideology or place of origin .

I actually agree with every syllable that you wrote above in this terrific response, Brother Ture, regarding the fact that AFrakan people are ONE people. To me, however, that is exactly why we should see more continental Afrakans reflecting roles starring and/or centered upon continental Afrakans. We simply don't see that enough, and given the preeminence of a character like TChalla? I think we should definitely see a continental Afrakan portraying him the same way we should see a Afrakan of American origin play BLADE. Embrace our unity and diversity at the same time. And correct he underrepresentation of continental Afrakans in Hollywood.

And correct he underrepresentation of continental Afrakans in Hollywood.


I see no problem in shuffling our "diversity." A continental or diasporac Afrakan can play Tchalla just as long as they are Afrakan, the same logic applies to the portrayal of Blade, Cage, Falcon, Vixen, Misty etc. Defining who is Afrakan would take in a whole 'nother direction. I avoided mentioning the weather goddess for just that reason, though personally I think it applies to her as well. Suffice it to say I think we understand one another.

Using their given terms for nationality you have Djimon Hounsou from Benin, Fana Mokoena of South Africa,  Peter Mensah of Ghana and Edi Gathegi hails from Kenyan. Combine them with Idrissa Akuna "Idris" Elba, Adewalle Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Chiwetelu Ejiofor all of whom are British. Throw in Americans Wesley Snipes, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Tishuan Scott, Michael Kenneth Williams, Don Cheadle and Jamie Hector and you have one indistinguishable mix of Wakandans. Curious to note that all these actors work in Hollywood.

For your Dora Milaje I present Americans Danai Gurira, Asia Hinds, Rutina Wesley, Adina Porter and Whoopi Goldberg who seamlessly meld with Ini Edo (Nigerian), Stephanie Okereke (Nigerian), Omotola Jalade (Nigerian), Yvonne Okoro (Ghana) and Jackline Appiah (Canadian). You see it all works.

Our continental Afrakans are making movies and have their own film industries; that's something us American Afrakans should take note of. There is Kenya Cinema, the ill named Nollywood and Ghallywood representing Nigeria and Ghana respectively to name a few of the top of my head. Thankfully there are some American Afrakans with their own studios, production and casting companies.

Our under representation in Hollywood is endemic of the fact that some would rather work for others rather than build for self. I know its difficult to do such when one doesn't have an adequate definition of self; however developing a global Afrakan film industry would be a excellent way to embrace our unity and diversity.

OK, we've got our lead, now we need to think about supporting cast, as in, which BP supporting characters should be in the movie.

I had no idea you are apart of the production crew. lol
With these choices, I felt that the American black man only needed to choose which one to get eaten by; the liberal fox or the conservative wolf because both of them will eat him.

Speaking of which, I saw someone on Youtube suggested Antoine Fuqua to direct.

Yep. HEFfas here suggested the same thing, a long time ago. After REGINALD HUDLIN, that is. Remember? Back when RH was writing BP, it was clear that WHO IS THE BLACK PANTHER is a made for cinema arc. RH would most definitely be the man to direct that.

Tell me that his DJANGO wasn't DOOOPE. You can't do it. You KAIN'T, I tells ya.

After RH? You gotta say his cinematic younger brother, Antoine Fuqua. A to the F be killin it.

A while ago, someone suggested her to play a Dora Milaje but how about Yaya Dacosta as Shuri?

I can work with that. Here's to Shuri faring better in the MCU than she did in the pages of New Avengers.

I wonder what things he is referring to when he said things that didn't exist when they were written but exist now.

And it sounds like he might have a say in how BP will appear on screen.

The Kimoyo card was a cool piece of future tech in the 90's.  It's an iPhone 6 today.

Nice find.  Thanks Kip!
