Discover 5 Empowering Similarities Between The Black Panther Film And The Southeast Queens Scoop!

Are We Ready To Support An Independent Black Media Production That Challenges Stereotypes?

There Are a Number Of Empowering Similarities Between The Black Panther Movie And The Southeast Queens Scoop


Here Are Some Real World Similarities Between The Success Of The Black Panther Movie And The Southeast Queens Scoop News Blog.

Black people in the US helped propel Black Panther into becoming one of the top grossing movies of all time (4th as of the writing this post).  Globally people of all ethnic groups supported the film which defied stereotypes.

The film generated over 1.3 billion dollars and at a production cost of 200 million dollars.  Which means the film made 1.1 billion dollars in gross profits for the Disney/Marvel conglomerate.


It has been reported that the Black people in the US spent about $400,000,000 ($400 million) to see and support the Black Panther Movie.  And of course that doesn't count the Blacks who supported the film throughout the world.  Also people from all ethnic backgrounds went to see the film and enjoyed it which defied the conventional wisdom of Hollywood, that Black leads couldn't do well in a global film marketplace.

I calculate that given the percentage of the Southeast Queens population (in ratio to the US Black population) that we spent about $8 million dollars collectively to see the Black Panther film in our area. What if we spent $8 million dollars to create positive businesses and independent media sources in our community?  Wouldn't that really help us?

One of the reasons the movie made so much money from the Black consumer market is some people went to see the film more than once.  But why would Blacks be so elated to support the film?
