    I, Tonya

    ★★

    Seeing this on the opening weekend of Black Panther was my first good idea. I arrived to the Alamo Drafthouse about 30 minutes before my showtime and was treated to no less than 3 dozen white folks and their children wearing kente cloth. It was really funny so I was in good spirits when I took my seat for the film.

Here they are presented as tailors, blacksmiths and builders who just want to save lives. In reality they are the Western backed Sunni extremist allied information arm of the latest iteration of the butchers on 9/11/01. How swindled…
