Tony Rock thinks the new “Black Panther” movie is a boon for the black community — not only will it bring people out in droves … it’ll show ’em something they don’t see often.

We got Chris Rock‘s younger brother Wednesday at LAX and asked why he thought ‘Panther’ is gonna be a huge draw for African-Americans, like he indicated online. 

Tony says it’s no secret … black kids love T’Challa, and says they’re gonna flock to theaters to see him kick ass on the big screen. Plus, he says it’s a chance to see black people depicted in a positive light. Leading live-action black superheroes are scant outside of Shaq (Steel), Wesley Snipes (Blade) and Mike Colter (Luke Cage).

Side note … Tony’s kicked in some cash to send kids from Harlem to the movie on his dime. Sounds like he’s gonna shell out even more, too.
