Editors Note: This story contains spoilers for the film Black Panther.
Black Panthers Wakanda is a near-utopic vision of how a country could look; perhaps the best depiction of Afrofuturism ever captured on film. There were thriving and ideological-diverse cities surrounded by expansive and bucolic countrysides. There was modern technology perfectly weaved in to cultural tradition, a melding that was symbiotic instead of antagonistic. And while I didnt see this happening during the movie, Im sure Wakanda has amazing bottomless brunches.
Unfortunately, a present-day attempt to recreate Wakanda would be unrealistic. Mainly because were roughly 20,000 years behind Wakandan tech. And mostly because were too infected with colonization and its myriad residues and peripheral effects. Also, were a little short on Vibranium.
One thing, however, that we can and definitely should start doing is what MBaku and his Que Dog Jabari Tribe did when encountering a problematic white dude who was speaking when there was no ask or need or purpose for the thoughts and opinions of problematic white dudes.
Not a purposeless bark. This isnt a shih tzu barking through the window at a squirrel. Instead this would be an intentional bark. A targeted bark. An overpowering bark. A drowning bark. A Wakandan bark. A bark meant to communicate Um, who told you that you can speak? When it is time for your words, we will let you know. And maybe that time will never come. Well see. Now, just shut up and stand there. Maybe get on your phone and google How not to be a colonizer. Whatever you do, I want to hear you not speaking.

Blade was better.
"Barking"???. Yeah, that's their speed ... useless, meaningless noise.
Sounds like “Bow down to me when I’m speaking to you, BOY” with roles reversed.
Or, it could be like Her Royal Thighness not allowing the little people to gaze upon her in the White House. Eyes were to be averted and/or downcast.
What. The. Hell?!
this is utter, racist diatribe on its face.
just flip the speech. If an uppity black person speaks out of turn we should shout him down?!
We are fast approaching a civil war...
In the movie. what brand of car tires did they use to "necklace" capatilists?
Wakanda and the Black Panther were dreamed up by two white guys.
I didn’t see any reference to Islam, considering the largish proportion of blacks that are mussulmen today, but then this is the future ...
“Whatever you do, I want to hear you not speaking.
Have it your way, Damon.
Just don’t whine when you get stuck, and folks walk right past without lending a hand.
>>How not to be a colonizer.
Do they really go to work and sit next to some white dude that they’ve known for years and think this sh!t?
By all means go to Africa and leave us whites alone.
Barking like dog? We have people in power who want to strip away Americas Constitution so that they can rule the people with a system of fiat like narco thug gang bangers. If you want to see how well such a system works, look at the North Korean Pig and his atrocious treatment of the citizens under his fist.
This madness wants the removal of ChristianityGodfrom our society. Blacks have bought into it when they are told it is the “White Man’s God. This Marxist effort has allowed hate to enter the psyche of America. A godless America will grow in hate which will send America into a mass madness of self destruction.
lol - from the last line of the blogpost
“(Also, the bark was actually an ape grunt. But it sounded like a bark and his momma named it a bark so we gonna call it a bark.)”
Does he even realize what he wrote?! Jokes write themselves man...
Didn’t Arsenio Hall already do this when he had a show?
White dude created this character and eventually the movie and wrote it.
I pity the poor theatre custodians.....Who speaks for THEM?
