A movie that people only liked because it had a predominantly African American cast. So as a result all of the wannabe black white people also jumped on the bandwagon. Half of the people who seen it had not read or heard of the comics at all. Don't get me wrong I liked Black Panther a lot as well but it had a few flaws like some choppy effects at times. It is currently on Blu ray and digital.
Black Panther was awesome until people had to twist it into racial plight.

Militant organisation of Black Americans founded in Oakland, California in 1966 by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. Called upon Blacks to arm themselves against their oppressors. At the same time, provided free breakfasts for children in ghetto areas, (financed by donations from local merchants and wealthy sympathisers), and opened schools and medical centres. Organisation waned as leaders fled USA after arrests on various charges, police shootings and in-house fighting.
The Black Panthers is a fascinating movement, so challenging and controversial to American culture.

A group started for the black community when the blacks were oppressed in America. During that time, the group was for the equality of blacks. Since then, they have changed to become a group of anti-white, racist blacks who would, ironcially, rather live in the days of hate towards blacks, rather than live in the now where they are considered equal. As long as you're black, the Black Panthers will support you, even if you are a killer or rapist. The Black Panthers will never admit that the ancestors of their "brothers" in Africa played a part in making the blacks slaves by selling them to "whitey," and that there were whites involved with the underground railroads so to free the slaves. They make sure to remember that there were many bastard whites that were pro-slavery and for the hatred towards blacks. They will never remember that there were whites then, and many now, that are not hateful towards the black race and find them to be just as important and valuable as whites.
The Black Panthers have become what they hate most...racists. Congratulations, Black KKK.

The black (and equally as racist) equivalent of the KKK
if the Black Panthers and the KKK got into a shootout and everyone died the world would be much less racist

A group of black supremacists, originally started in 1966 to fight for black rights. Recently, they have developed a reputation as the polar opposites of the ku klux klan
Despite what people may believe, white people aren't the only racist people. Just look at the Black Panthers

The Black Panther Party originated in Oakland, California in 1966. It was a revolutionary and socialist organization founded by Dr. Huey P. Newton who had earned a Ph.D. in Social Philosophy at UC Santa Cruz, and co-founder Bobby Seale, who was a member of the Afro-American Association. It had chapters in the Bay Area, Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia

The Black Panthers even worked with white groups such as the White Panther Party, which was formed in 1968 by Leni Sinclair and John Sinclair. And The Weather Underground group, founded by Bill Ayers at the University of Michigan in 1969. AKA the 'Weathermen', their political theory made every campaign an anti-imperialist, and anti-racist campaign.

The Black Panthers had armed citizens monitor police officers in an effort to halt the widespread police brutality of blacks in numerous cities and states. The group initiated community social programs across the country, such as the Free Breakfast for Children Program, and People's Free Medical Centers. Kitchens across the US fed over 10,000 children every day before school.

Today: A group claiming to be the "New Black Panther Party" was formed in Texas. The Huey Newton Foundation, co-founder Bobby Seale, and the original party members insist it is an illegitimate hate group and they've strongly opposed it by stating "there is no new Black Panther Party"

"We named it the Black Panthers because the nature of a black panther is that it never attacks. But if anyone attacks it or backs it into a corner, the panther comes up to wipe that aggressor or the attacker out, absolutely, resolutely, wholly, thoroughly, and completely" -Bobby Seale

"White youth must choose sides now. They must either fight on the side of the oppressed, or be on the side of the oppressorโ€ -Bernardine Dohrn

"You don't fight racism with racism, the best way to fight racism is with solidarity" -Bobby Seale
