Dear Fellow White People: Go See “Black Panther”

Were you not entertained? OMG YES CHADWICK I WAS

Here are the reasons #AllWhitePeople need to see this movie.

White identity has its own characteristics, its own values, and thinking of ourselves as aracial is, paradoxically, the essence of white identity.

IT’S ALL ABOUT MEEEEEEEE
Ay gurl. Lemme lean atcha.

Black people as people, and not “black,” are not something white people are used to seeing.

Are we here to look good, or kick ass? How bout you just stand there, and we’ll show you.

Go spend your white money on a film featuring black actors. Don’t sit around and cry with other white people about how you “just don’t understand.”

It will make you feel things you have never felt before.
