Africanos

Buena crítica a Black Panther por la gente de Africa is a country en línea con algunas de mis observaciones de hace unos días. Obviamente mejor presentadas y contextualizadas:

Killmonger embodies the old adage “you can’t go home again.” His quest to “return” to the soil of his ancestors (a place he has never been) is portrayed as tragic and unattainable. Yet there is a great deal of history behind that emigrationist impulse.

For centuries, African Americans and other members of the African Diaspora have sought “repatriation” to the Mother Continent. This yearning for reunification and restoration of kinship bonds is a byproduct of the historical experience of dispersal. Dispossessed and exploited throughout the globe, generations of black folk have craved a land base where they might find security, prosperity, and power. Often they have looked to Africa for such a foundation.

After World War Two, however, the US Cold War establishment sought to disavow any form of grassroots black internationalism. Pundits argued that “the Negro” was exclusively American, that African Americans and Africans were strangers, and that Pan Africanism was a futile and dangerous fantasy.

Marchas

Si alguien quiere marchar, que marche. Todas las marchas deberían ser bienvenidas. Son expresiones pacíficas de opiniones/sentimientos. Mejor pancartas que metralla.

Por otro lado, ir anticipadamente en contra de una marcha desgasta. No hay ganancia en la masacre verbal directa o indirecta de los potenciales participantes de una manifestación pública. En caso de desacuerdo, es más apropiado ignorarla que engrandecerla. Condenarla con vehemencia la promueve. Un comentario crítico posterior, cuando la dimensión, intenciones y consecuencias concretas de la marcha son claras, tiene más sentido y pertinencia.
