Black Panther recently exceeded $1.1 billion at the box office, and has become one of the top 20 highest-grossing films of all time.
I wish that weren’t the case, but it is – and I’m not surprised. The film had one of the most aggressive marketing campaigns in cinema history, and several review aggregation websites – most notoriously Rotten Tomatoes – manipulated its critical reception in an apparent attempt to convince the public that a movie about a vibranium-powered supernigger is better than The Godfather.
But that isn’t the saddest thing about Black Panther.
The saddest (also, funniest) thing about Black Panther is that a sizable percentage of its black audience left the cinema believing that Wakanda is (a) real, and (b) would be a bretty gud place to catch some sun.
It seems that the Black Panther movie has done such a good job of immersing audiences in its world that many people think it’s real.
Two hotel booking sites have revealed that site searches for the word ‘Wakanda’ – the name of the fictional African country the movie is set in – have risen dramatically.
Hotelscan.com reported that the number of people landing on its Wisconsin Wakanda Water Park page is up by 620 per cent and Hotels.com reported that searches for neighbouring Wakanda Park are up by 55 per cent year on year.
A spokesperson for hotelscan.com commented: ‘The fact we’ve seen such an increase in the number of site visits to the Wakanda Water Park destination page on our website since the launch of Black Panther suggests that, until people visit our website searching for trips, they’re not aware it’s a fictional destination.
‘Either that, or people are more interested than ever in attending the Water Park, but we think that the movie has something to do with it!’
Boy, that’s a cruel twist of fate.
Blacks search for hotels in Wakanda and discover that the “real” Wakanda is the last place on Earth they want to be: a goddamn water park.
Hotels.com, meanwhile, said it had spotted spikes in searches to other Wakanda namesakes around the world.
It said searches for Wauconda, Illinois (pronounced identically to Wakanda), are up more than 25 per cent and Makanda, also in Illinois, are up over 40 per cent year on year.
Further afield, Wakaya, in Fiji, are up over 235 per cent and Wakkanai in Japan is enjoying a more than 55 per cent year-on-year uplift.
Anyone want to bet that these cities are in the process of changing their names to avoid attracting a bunch of blacks who are expecting to meet T’Challa?
The Japs probably will. These people are so disgusted by the sight of negroes that their Black Panther posters needed to hide the race of the lead actor:
Seriously, Asians were led to believe that this film wasn’t about Africans. The Chinese were pissed af after seeing it.
All things considered, though, this is pretty heavy stuff.
I mean, just think about it: blacks have no history, so two ratfaced kikes (Stan Lee and Jack Kirby) created Wakanda for them in comic book form. Jewish Hollywood brings Wakanda to the silver screen and encourages blacks to identify with it. Blacks do so, and, in many cases, believe that Wakanda – a futuristic metropolis where trains operate via electromagnetism – is real and can be visited like Johannesburg or Cancún.
At the risk of sounding like a racist writing for the meanest neo-Nazi site in existence, I’m starting to think that these blacks are not as clever as Morgan Freeman has led me to believe.
