A message from the Revolution Club to those coming out of Black Panther and wondering if we could really get to a different—and better—world...

There IS a Way Forward, Out of the Madness...

February 26, 2018 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us


When you have seen Black people demonized and degraded on TV and movies and everywhere else... when you have seen Black women in particular dissed and caricatured in these same media... when you have seen—and lived—the conditions that the masses of Black people are forced into, with no acknowledgment of the depth and pain and long ugly source of the problem... then there is much in Black Panther that could grab you, deeply.

The movie takes you on a journey—but to where?

Do we need a better world? Yes. A thousand times yes! But how are we really going to get there?

NOT through T’Challa’s way—NOT through becoming another great power in the same system that oppresses people all over the world right now. Not through giving people charity crumbs—and maybe opportunities to get in on that oppression.

And NOT through Killmonger’s way either. Killmonger fights in the name of the masses, but he lashes out in revenge and brutality and ends up no better than the oppressors he wants to overthrow.

BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY! These are NOT the only choices.

There is the potential for something of unprecedented beauty to arise out of unspeakable ugliness: Black people playing a crucial role in putting an end, at long last, to this system which has, for so long, not just exploited but dehumanized, terrorized and tormented them in a thousand ways—putting an end to this in the only way it can be done—by fighting to emancipate humanity, to put an end to the long night in which human society has been divided into masters and slaves, and the masses of humanity have been lashed, beaten, raped, slaughtered, shackled and shrouded in ignorance and misery.

These are the words of Bob Avakian. Bob Avakian is the leader of the revolution aiming to emancipate ALL humanity. He’s brought forward a strategy for this revolution and a blueprint for the new society, and a way that masses of people can scientifically understand and transform the whole world.
