Is this a positive thing and a huge step forward in race relations, or just mindless pandering to the masses by Tinseltown, trotted out just in time for MLK Day and Black History Month?

It's a lot of both.  A lot of pandering and a lot of legitimate trying to develop characters that have been either long forgotten or not considered much in the past.  It will depend who you ask.

Water, earth, fire. Long ago, the three seasons lived together in harmony. Then everything changed, when the Shyamalan attacked.....

Rush Limbaugh just talked about this movie on his show yesterday... pretty much saying the same thing I did.  Brief history: The Black Panther was introduced as a supporting character in Marvel Comics way back in 1966, but didn't see his own title until a decade or so later.  The character enjoyed a sort of cult popularity for decades, perhaps because of the political upheaval of the time. However, Black Panther really didn't come into his own until recently, when he was introduced to the recent Avengers Assemble! series (which is where I mostly know the character from). He's the ruler of a small but mineral-rich African nation, and a metaphor for old-world isolationism trying to exist in a new world where networks have significantly shrunk the global market. He doesn't seem to quite "get" his Avenger teammates, which of late has included a reformed thief, a hip selfie-loving millennial, and a hot-headed little bossy-boots who often vies with him for team leadership (which doesn't sit too well with a king, taking orders from a woman).  Despite his misgivings and an attitude that can at times come off as cold and dismissive, Panther has proven himself a capable and respected member of the team.
