Can anyone explain to me where exactly Killmonger was trying to incite rebellion? Because if he is suggesting that what black people in the US need to solve their problems is more guns I just find that baffling.

Maybe theyd give them some bulletproof armor so the cops would stop killing them.

That is not what the movie is suggesting.

That is the suggestion (though it's more like high tech weapons than regular guns) and that's why he's the villain. Though his goal is admirable, his method is not.

His goal is to foment war everywhere there are black people. Even if you think that is justified in Chicago or Baltimore, which it isn't, what about the rest of the countries with large African minorities? They don't have nearly as many racial problems as the US.

To me, at least in some ways and I may be way off base here, but I thought T'Challa was meant to represent an Martin Luther King, Jr. type, while Erik was more the Malcolm X type, more militant like, well, the (real) Black Panthers. That is not to say Malcolm X was a villain, I honestly don't know enough to say other than knowing his approach to civil rights was decidedly more disruptive than the philosophies of MLK.

To my knowledge Malcolm X never advocated armed uprisings. I think comparing him to Killmonger is doing him a disservice.
