Are you black? Or are you just an offended white dude mad you're not being pandered too?
Blaxploitation is clearly not a term or genre you know or understand.
You're also not clever for realizing that yes a profit-driven industry is creating a product to sell and realizes that thanks to things like Black Panther there's a sizable market it can make movies for. That's capitalism. And if anything in this primary example its not "blaxploitation" because this will be a high budget major product aimed at everyone. You're just mad that it means making a product that isn't solely aimed at you. So you need to frame it as if those "blacks" are idiots and that of course anything aimed at them is some cynical thing of lower quality. Like why does it automatically have to be a shit movie? Why can't it be an earnest movie? And why do you think the "blacks" will just eat it up. You seem to imply the "blacks" eat up Black Panther because it was a black movie and it would have done it regardless of its quality. As if it must be a bad movie. Maybe the "blacks" don't agree with you. Most people don't agree with you.
Sorry, but thanks for your bitter tears.
