The wrong writer has been hired to script Black Panther

Axel Alonso hired the dreadful Ta-Nehisi Coates to write another volume of Black Panther:
Having made a name for himself as an avenger of civil rights, it’s perhaps fitting that Ta-Nehisi Coates will soon spin the tale of Marvel’s Black Panther.
We'll soon discuss why it's not fitting at all he should be given the assignment.
The comics publisher’s editor-in-chief, Axel Alonso, said in a statement that Coates will tell the story of “the world we have created, and the world we want to live in,” the AP reports.
More likely it'll be the world a moonbat would want to live in. And the world people like Alonso created, which is a world run by leftism, where rightist values are considered total anathema.
“It was mostly through pop culture, through hip-hop, through Dungeons & Dragons and comic books that I acquired much of my vocabulary,” Coates told the New York Times, calling Marvel “an intimate part of my childhood.” He has previously opined on his geekdom on the FanBrosShow, a podcast devoted to nerd culture.
Oh, tell us about it. He got his vocabulary - much like his mindset - from the leftists he was raised by. And here, from the New York Post, is an example from one of his books, "Between the World and Me", that demonstrates why he's one of the worst choices to come around:
“ ‘White America’ is a syndicate arrayed to protect its exclusive power to dominate and control our bodies,” he writes. What is this “white America”?

Is it Nancy Pelosi or Ted Cruz? Is it Massachusetts, or is it Utah?

In a monstrous passage about 9/11, he writes of the police and firefighters who died trying to save people from getting obliterated into dust: “They were not human to me. Black, white, or whatever, they were menaces of nature; they were the fire, the comet, the storm, which could — with no justification — shatter my body.”

Really? Firefighters go about shattering the bodies of black people without justification?
Man...now that is sick. Some of those firefighters and police officials who perished on 9-11 were surely black too, yet Coates clearly never considered that. Here's more from the Wash. Post article:
Black Panther debuted in a volume of “Fantastic Four” in July 1966, actually preceding the founding of the Black Panther Party that same year. But in many ways, he shouldered the gauntlet raised by the radical black nationalist group: the Black Panther (whose given name is T’Challa) hails from the fictional African nation of Wakanda, to which he returns during the height of a revolution.

The son of a onetime Black Panther member, Coates is familiar with political unrest, at least when it comes to literary subject matter.
Oh, just look what they're trying to do, hijack T'Challa for the cause of anarchists and nihilists. But truly, the goals Stan Lee and Jack Kirby ascribed to the African prince were far more noble than what the radical group in real life ever represented. And it's clear Coates was influenced more by their visions than Lee/Kirby's.
On more than one occasion, Coates has lent his writing to the cause of comic books themselves — and to the exposure they’ve given minority characters when few other outlets were interested.

“One reason why I still enjoy books, including comic books, is that there’s still more room for transgressive diversity [than in movies],” Coates wrote this February. “Outside of hip-hop, it was in comics that I most often found the aesthetics and wisdom of my world reflected.”
Oh, that's hilarious. There have been only so many movies where black performers and staffers have been spotlighted, television too, and to say there's more room in comics is like an absurd way of saying they're done better in every way than other mediums. But that's an awfully flawed way to argue. No medium is perfect in how it's managed, and Marvel/DC's track record since the early 1990s is proof of that.
Even if racial issues were seldom raised, the existence of characters like Storm of X-Men was significant, Coates told the New York Times. “It meant something to see people who looked like me in comic books. It was this beautiful place that I felt pop culture should look like.”
All this from the same man who said he didn't think lighter-complected blacks were authentic enough to be cast in these roles. Some of the commenters don't think highly of Coates' assignment either. For example, one says:
God, sounds awful. Look for lots of cop killing and indoctrination.
And another said:
Instead of a superhero, expect a platform for Coates' views. The Black Panther will fail where Storm succeeded, going by Coates' history.
And here's another:
Coates is awful. Can't wait to see this flop. He's rehashed 1970s black nationalism from his parents. Nothing he says is new or interesting, but white columnists like to pretend it is to show how progressive they are. The Emperor has no clothes.
And the biggest problem is that men like Coates are being hired more for their ultra-liberal politics than anything else. Marvel's only doing a terrible disfavor to many Americans - and blacks too - by associating themselves with such a disgrace of a writer.

That's really not a good guy to hire.

On the bright side, he'll be continuing the horrible, racist writing that Reginald Huldin was famous for with the title. So ... yay? Marvel and DC are lucky they have Disney and the WB banking them, because these SJW things only drive people away from the titles.

So the Hudlin era 2.0 then....

Now we'll never get Wakanda back its dignity and Monica Lynn back with T'Challa.... *sigh* Goddamn it...

Yay, my ass. I hated Hudlin's writing and I won't give this new title the time of day unless Coates gets removed in time for the 2018 movie
