Here are the final chilling words of Bartolomé de las Casas, who was there in the 15th and 16th centuries at the dawn of European colonization:
I think that God shall have to pour out his fury and anger on Spain for these damnable, rotten, infamous deeds done so unjustly, so tyrannically, so barbarously to those people, against those people. For the whole of Spain has shared in the blood-soaked riches, some a little, some a lot, but all shared in goods that were ill-gotten, wickedly taken with violence and genocide- and all must pay unless Spain does a mighty penance.
Many of the resources of Africa are now in the hands of multinational corporations which generate high profits but pay little tax (For example: the largest mining company in the world by revenue, Glencore International AG, which is based in Switzerland). Whatever benefits they might bring to the people of Africa, can scarcely be determined.
The Plundering of West Africa and its Kingdoms for Art, Labor, and Wealth
In West Africa during the time of colonialism not so long ago, people were slaughtered for standing against European interests and their possessions were outright stolen from them.
Klaue stated that vibranium was known to the people of Wakanda as "Isipho," meaning "the gift." If this was a "gift" to humanity, why was this gift to the world kept such a closely guarded secret from the world for so long? Could it be that Wakanda had already lost some of that precious mineral to the world at some point(s) in time?
Killmonger alludes to colonial era history when he says that the war hammer in the museum was "taken by British solders in Benin." This is real history. It was "submit or die" and the dead had no say in where those objects they made would be taken to show off as trophies of their surrender or annihilation.

Black Panther is all the rave in Hollywood. At least 80% of Black Hollywood must be feeling the Black Panther Effect by now so the rest of them MUST be feeling something, too! As it stands, this film that was projected to fail miserably from the very beginning proved to be a real blockbuster with well over a record $1 billion in revenue worldwide, and became the top grossing superhero film of all time. The next Marvel installment, Avengers: Infinity War, revisited Wakanda and broke even more records. (How might a Black Panthersequel do?)
$1 billion dollas? That's a lot of guap right there.
