Should the Movie Black Panther be boycotted if 25% of profits do not go toward the black community.

There are so many different types of people on planet Earth….with different experiences… and different interpretations of this world. African Americans are descendants of Africans…who were brought to America. Our Ancestors were stripped of their language…beliefs…. and overall way of life to become slaves. So much of our history is left out of history books and lessons in the school system.
When a people do not know where they come from… or understand who they are…they become lost. This is the result of oppression. So much chaos is amongst African Americans today in a world where we are barely tolerated… of which we did not ask to be a part of.
The movie Black Panther is a step in the right direction. Because of differences of people and their viewpoints.. everyone may not go out to see films like “Roots”, ” A Birth of A Nation”, “Hotel Riwanda”, “12 Years A Slave” etc. You have to be able to reach people at the level they are mentally. Many of times that will be in their comfort zone… even if it means burying a much needed deep message in a superhero movie.
For many reason explained in the video… you will understand why boycotting this film would be ridiculous and a disservice to African Americans… and all other ethnicities on the planet.
