didnt realize he played the front man of the crazy 88 in KB1 and pai mei in KB2 (the very same villain he defeated!) until years later

back to the topic though... the opportunity to see someone that looks like u to be the protagonist (esp. after watching your own kind on the silver screen either dying early or being nothing but the bad guy's underling for YEARS) was most seriously the biggest get off. then pile on the can't-fail ingredients such as the underdog usurping the established power, coming of age, and pseudo-enlightenment that's real easy to swallow and requires little to no thinking, etc.

not on no ignorant sh*t but we like to f*ght. We like the thrill of hand to hand combat. At least I do.
yep. from like 5 to 20? bruh but once you hit 20 them knockouts and getting slept and punching start to break bones and jawas and n*ggas be 250 anto 300 pounds.

and frequent headaches is not worth it bruh. plus n*ggas be shooting and stabbing now a days.

i think it's becuase most marital arts and kung fu and anime has a story of the heroes or group of heroes getting opressed or have to f*ght opression or a wick crooked master.


and n*ggas who cannot play basketball or football. this is the next manly sport to be apart of.

glad we have one woke and actually real african american in this thread.

learning about african and black history and white folks and middle east and asians stole alot from us n*ggas.

white folks lie so much that who knows what to believe from them devils anymore.

so think no bruce lee,jackie chan,blood sport,street f*ghter,fist of the north star, no dragon ball z,no marvel or no superhero and f*ghting games and beat em up and adventure platform f*ghting games without

now do you understand why i said midway and the mk creator was for the culture. mk4 and gold would of not been so good if it wasn't for this game. this was a mk4 prototype.

this is the most Iconic black f*ghting game in my opinion.

had a moorish king character.

a eygptain king

a african new oreealns king.

Thank you family

Some don't realize Egypt is in Africa and hand to hand kungfu whatever you call it is in our DNA

They'd rather argue with hieroglyphics that's older than anything they can produce it's all on the wall our ancestors left for us if you need proof

Earliest memories for this black man are of learning to f*ght but also learning not to be a bully. Karate was a way to let off anger and taught us how to control our emotions. The lessons taught from kung fu movies are invaluable. Power and mercy, time management and patience, trust versus naivete, how anger makes you think less, how compassion can overcome hatred, empathy and understanding.... and so many other virtues

Yup, it's also a form of harnessing your energy.

Bruce Lee was making a lot of impact with his movement and he ended up getting offed. Whatever you see from Asian culture definitely came from Egypt, as like most of everything. When are we as a people going to stop ignoring the Pyramids? It's a big deal

Last week I saw a commercial where they had all these "famous" philosophers, inventors, brilliant minds and they were all white. That kind of sh*t subconsciously affects how we view them and melanated people. I was born in Mexico and I get dark in the sun, I go by as an indigenous American as I try to get away from their labels. It's a fu*ked up works we live in but lately I feel like it's going to get better. Like karma is coming for those who did wrong and if you're vibrating high on a positive frequency many blessings are coming. Positive things have been happening to me since I've been more disciplined on what I consume mentally and say positive things to myself over and over again.

RZA was like it's cussed when they was young they couldn't afford to go-to the movies so they watched the Kung Fu reruns on TV.


Plus imo big reason is the good guys don't all be white.

I always thought it was because of the theatres in the hood back in the day and television . They would play a lot of kung fu movies which black people started watching and imitating, it was cheaper for foreigners to put their movies in theatres in black neighborhoods so Asians did it. it became part of the culture and stuck with us. Probably why they have so many Asian food spots in the hood too, dry cleaners etc.. they know who to appeal too

I watched kung fu movies on WPIX 11 on Saturdays when I was a kid.
