MercyfulGrace Blog Diaries with ‘Idris Elba’ – Black Super Heroes by Àrèmúorin

Idris Elba

Why are black people bothered about white fictitious xters ..’ Why not create your own – #‎Shaft

I speak as an independent black artiste, writer and producer who has a guilty pleasure for Mr Bond & Jason Bourne; but ..’ Why are black people bothered about white fictitious xters ..’ Why not create your own like ::‪ #‎Shaft ‬‪#‎Obatala‬ ‪#‎Sango‬ ‪#‎OrisaBunmi‬‪ #‎FadeyiOloro‬‪ #‎AinaEleyinOke‬‪ #‎Yemoja‬‪ #‎Oshun‬‪ #‎Oduduwa‬‪ #‎Lamurudu‬ #Orunmila – instead of the‪ #‎JamesBond ‬‪#‎MentalSlavery‬ ::

And these, are just a snap shot of West African’s fictitious heroes, from one tribe alone, in Nigeria. Imagine you combed out every, tribe, in every state, in every country, throughout the North, West, East and South of Africa’s RICH –  untold history. A plethora of them longing to unfold

I was looking at my reflection, on the train; in the window carriage, today, and I realized, how beautiful it was ..’ Then, I thought to myself, damm – how come – no one told me this ..’

We don’t have to tell it, or do it, like Hollywood – but tell it, never the less. These fictitious xters, I mentioned above – would p**s on James Bond’s grave, any day of they week. First of all – James Bond is not a positive role model.

He has no respect for women. Nor does his character give any credence to any deity, above himself or his ego, save his Majesty – The Queen. Okay, let me be kind – he has little, or no, respect for women. A serial womanizer. Our fictitious characters – acknowledge a ‘God’, and pay tribute to our culture, history and traditions, which is informative, inspiring and educational. They are supernatural and fearless prophetic oracles – with balance.

They are not self centered ego maniacs. They serve our peoples need, and are great timeless classics, traditional, folk stories. They give hope and inspiration too. Far better than made up bond, on paper, for commercial PROFITS. They have meaning, depth, truths and life and Have been for centuries.

They give CREDIT to civilization and have been orally told – for centuries through our forefathers. Our history is, and was, robbed off, us, by the system, like James Bond Brand’s. Ours is Great Art – just like the Greek methodologies.

Tragedy, drama, suspense, humor etc ..’ If not better! Seriously, ya’ll need this checked out and INVEST in your own. Buy into the black brand. I’m glad, I know my history. They can’t lie to me! They can try, but they won’t WIN. I’m too bright for that. There are Shakespeare’s to a penny, in Africa that you’ll probably never hear of. And, that’s a fact. We don’t need to play black versions of white super heroes. We have our own. Its never too late. Do it!
