What would T'Challa do in response to #ICantBreathe?

Nothing. It's not his country. It would be either Steve Rogers or Sam Wilson the current Captain America whom should do something in response.

Nothing, as he's not an American. Although if any Wakandan WERE to do anything, it would BE T'challa before anyone else. Especially if he were connected to the Garner family, in anyway.

T'Challa would continue secretly offering full scholarships for economically vulnerable African American students to study at the University of Wakanda; also he'd be funding local self-defense workshops and public policy advocacy groups through backdoor channels.

Interesting idea that T'Challa would do nothing, especially given the global scale of the protests over the last two weeks.  I would definitely see the interventions Hypestyle describes ... guidance & mentoring for Captain America, Luke Cage, and Pulsar ... a guest shot with the Mighty Avengers would definitely be in order.

Well right now,  given what is going on in New Avengers,  he is probably doing nothing,  especially since he is a pariah to the Wakandans.

Now that the Golden City has fallen, how would you rebuild it if you were T'Challa?

If Wakanda were to actually be decimated to the degree Hickman depicts, especially if it were still deprived of its wealth of Vibranium rendered inert to defeat Doom, Wakanda would be vulnerable to attack (not sure attack is right given the current state of its defenses, more like looting) to every nation that previously failed at invasion.  Even neighboring countries which may never have attempted to invade Wakanda would be bolder for the former power's weakness.

As such, the only way I can imagine T'Challa rebuilding the Golden City is if the devastation did not extend to Wakanda's surrounding tribes and villages and T'Challa was able to recruit new staff, a new council, new defense forces, etc., from the followers of the Whie Gorilla cult, N'djaka village and others.  Unfortunately, T'Challa is poorly positioned to garner the confidence of any dissidents given his culpability in the events that have resulted in Wakanda's demise.

My two cents,

Peace,

Or was the price of T'Challa's acceptance in the core narrative in the MU the destruction of his nation?
