Black Poseidon

An (Afro-) Body-Positive, Spectacularly, Publicly and Erotically Objectifying (in other words, a queer and eccentric) concern with visions, bodies, disciplines, technologies, practices, powers, punishments/pedagogies, politics (re)production(s), and relationships.

Russell Brand talks about how he is “very grateful to be involved” with the launch of David Lynch Foundation’s Operation Warrior Wellness, which offers the Transcendental Meditation technique to veterans suffering with PTSD. He discusses his own experience with TM and how it offered him “access to a deeper state of happiness” and made his “tendency towards selfishness exposed as a superficial and pointless perspective to have.” He also explains how it helped him recover from his drug addiction, saying, “my recovery is contingent upon a spiritual component.” He goes on to voice his support of TM as something that can not only benefit veterans but all human beings: “This technique is applicable to all human beings in all situations, no matter how extreme, trivial or mundane, everyone can draw from it.”

At the center of the geopolitical anti-colonialism metaphor of Wakandan independence rests a bold SF explanation and expression of blackness embodied by Black Panther and his Wakandan homeland. The Black Panther comic  (re)imagined fixed concepts of black identity and history by having an African nation written as the source of technological wonders far advanced in comparison to any other Western nation. Steeped in mysterious African lore yet cloaked in the signature features of modernism, science and progress, The Black Panther stood out as completely different from previous attempts to represent Black Africans.
Yet  the  super-science that is a signature feature of Wakanda is also fused with the supernatural. The Black Panther as leader of the Panther Clan is granted the tribute of ingesting a special herb that enhances his sense and physical abilities along with linking him to their Panther god. In this sense, Black Panther embodies a syncretic impulse, and although syncretism has been a cultural calling card for black folk in America (where various cultural traditions and historical experiences are combined to express a unique form of black cultural expression and way of performing black racial identity), Black Panther expresses this impulse as the convergence of African tradition with advanced science and technology. In doing so, Black Panther presents a politically provocative and wildly imaginative representation of blackness with a science fiction flare.
As a result, the Black Panther character and comic book series is made more significant  and compelling as one of the most mainstream, yet radical (re)imaginations and representations of blackness. Both the character and the comic book work as a grand vision of Afrofuturist blackness where black folk are no longer overdetermined by racism and colonialism.

I understood myself only after I destroyed myself.

And only in the process of fixing myself, did I know who I really was.

For Awesome Tyrell.

I understand why the political parties prefer having ties with intellectuals [or celebrities] who offer solutions [or endorsements] … because in that way the parties can establish ties of like with like… . I reject the role of alter-ego, the double and at the same time the alibi of the political party. Michel Foucault, Remarks on Marks, p. 158.
