RT @Prof_Casanova: I've never seen this before. Women learning dominatrix skills to respond to troublesome men in everyday life.  https://twitter.com/NYTStyles/status/954716155872194560 
But Black Panther learn isiXhosa textbooks would be especially awesome.
Or, you know, just textbooks. Seeing it's 24 whole years since democracy, and the fact that there's no proper isiXhosa syllabus for junior school lessons is.... insane. Insane and unacceptable.
Apparently the reason isiXhosa is not taught widely at schools in Cape Town as a proper second language (as opposed to conversational) is lack of text books and lack of teachers. Can we do a Black Panther textbook please?
So stoked isiXhosa is in Black Panther. Pity it's not in most private schools in Cape Town at a junior school level beyond "conversational Xhosa".
