Before Black Panther, I was a lost soul wandering the desert, deluded by the mirages of white acceptance. The spiritual connection that I now feel with the African diaspora is 1000x stronger than any brunch mimosa. I love us.

The possibility for young black kids to see themselves represented as powerful, intelligent, and dynamic characters capable of anything. For something I love to finally represent people who look like me.

I cried when it was announced. I cried at the visuals. I cried at the #SDCC Marvel booth.
I cried in joy. Their blackness is mine. My blackness is theirs.
Black Panther is a love letter, a celebration, and a victory march for the diaspora
Finally seeing BLACK people ruling their BLACK Country on their BLACK Continent minding there BLACK business thriving with there BLACK dollars and BLACK resources. #WhatBlackPantherMeansToMe— NoDell Beckham (@TerrytheWriter) February 6, 2018

Finally watching all black cast being centered in blackness without being a victim to it.
Seeing a whole film full of strong, powerful, educated people who look like ME not being discriminated against or mocked. No hurtful stereotypes of blacks. No ghettos or slaves or thugs... just beautiful royal kings and queens of Wakanda. #WhatBlackPantherMeansToMe— Mica Burton 🔜 Katsucon (@MicaBurton) February 6, 2018
Seeing dark-skinned Black women as other than the angry, loud sidekick #WhatBlackPantherMeansToMe— Nyasha Junior (@NyashaJunior) February 6, 2018
Can you imagine being a little brown child and seeing Black Panther, only to find out that the creators look like you? That the director has the thickest Oakland accent ever? That the production was filled with black people? #WhatBlackPantherMeansToMe pic.twitter.com/b3f6dNYKz0— Wakandas Favorite DJ (@djbenhameen) February 6, 2018

Black folks will give $200M to Disney to see The Black Panther. Sadly, we've never given that much money to ourselves— Boyce Watkins (@drboycewatkins1) February 9, 2018
Guys, don't get into the retarded race hype of Black Panther, get into the hype of it hopefully actually being a good movie— Mujahed Kobbe (@Moj_kobe) February 9, 2018
“Black Panther wouldn’t be as popular without us black people supporting it”— vegeta sama (@elleira__) February 9, 2018
Are you serious?! Us regular marvel fans would’ve seen it and it would’ve been just as successful. What stupid shit are y’all saying?
