What kind of group is the New Black Panther Party?
Definitely racist. But I can't imagine that Obama realizes this. After all, he rejected the endorsement of Minister Louis Farrakhan. That speaks volumes.
As I said, the New Black Panther Party is definitely racist- nothing at all like the original Panthers. Furthermore, the New Black Panther Party has no legitimate basis by which to use the Black Panther name (which I mention because it's a total insult to the original Panthers). I'm posting one of my previous answers below. (The question was concerning what happened to the original Panthers, but my answer addresses differences between them and the New Black Panther Party.).....
Good question. First, to comment on what others have said-
They didn't reactivate the group, and they were never a racist group. However, the New Black Panther Party is a racist organization that can in NO WAY be compared to the original Black Panther Party. I realize the names cause confusion. And another thing that causes confusion is the fact that one of the former members of the original Panthers, Michael McGee, created the Black Panther Militia which later became the New Black Panther Party under the leadership of Aaron Michaels. However, neither the name nor Michael McGee's involvement is reason to believe that the two groups are the same. Michael McGee himself stated that he was, "not advocating what the Black Panthers were advocating. Our militia will be about violence. I'm talking actual fighting, bloodshed and urban guerilla warfare."
The original Panthers operated on love for "black" people, and all other people as well. In fact, they even united with "white" revolutionary groups. They didn't advocate hatred for "non-blacks" and never declared war on "non-black" society or the "white" establishment. Their goal was to uplift "black" people, fight racism/discrimination, and practice self defense. They were role models who believed in the unity of all people regardless of color. They initiated breakfast programs, they led door to door health service programs, and they encouraged gangs to end their activities and participate in the fight for equality. At one time, the Panthers were responsible for feeding THOUSANDS of children each day throughout this country. The original Panthers were not only concerned with the problem of "racial" inequality and discrimination but also the huge gap between socioeconomic classes. They were very much in keeping with Malcom X's desire to unite the working class, including people of all "races" and genders.
On the other hand, the New Black Panther Party is, as I said, a racist organization. They are in complete agreement with "white" racist groups on the topic of "racial" separatism and support achieving this by any means necessary. They advocate anything that they believe will accomplish their goals, including violence. The late Khallid Abdul Muhammad, the New Black Panther's former leader, was so notoriously racist and hateful that Louis Farrakhan removed him from the Nation of Islam's leadership.
Concerning what happened to the original Panthers:
In my opinion, it's unfair to make the vague statement that some of the Panthers became criminals. (I know that you, the asker of the above question, didn't say this. I'm referring to others.) Dependency on drugs did become an issue for Huey Newton and Eldridge Cleaver. And Stanley Tookie Williams was a member of, and believed by many to be, the co-founder of the Crips (which gave rise to the common misconception that the Black Panther Party later formed the Crips). I'm not negating either of these facts. However, according to the FBI's bogus accusations, the Panthers have always been criminals.... This is one reason for their "split". They understandably became disillusioned. Law enforcement continuously assaulted the Panthers by employing false accusations / charges / and convictions, murder, and giving birth to (and feeding) public doubt as to what their purpose was. Many Panthers, as I said, were murdered. Others were forced to flee the country. And there were those who simply gave up.
Another reason for the "split" was the fact that there was some disagreement about whether or not to embrace "white" people in the fight for equality. The issue was NOT separatism. It was regarding differences in opinions as to whether or not to wholeheartedly accept "non-blacks" in the fight for equality. The argument was basically about whether or not "blacks" could achieve their due respect by "standing on their own two feet", so to speak, or by accepting the help of others. But this was a MINOR issue compared to the constant harassment by the FBI and other law enforcement.
The Black Panther Party will, and always will, be a testament to what love and devotion truly means- the polar opposite of the New Black Panther Party.
Should the New Black Panther Party be considered a terrorist group?
If one wanted to hypothesize, one could say any group who has made the same comments and threats could possibly be labeled as a domestic terrorist group.
Let me ask this. If a group of white supremacist were saying the same things and making the same threats, would they be considered a domestic terrorist group?
What date is the New Black Panther party going to take over the U.S.?
The NBPP is an antiquated ideology that has long lived out it's purpose. They tried the "political" avenue and that failed, just as their "tough, in your face" activist routine did.
Why would any black youth join an ideology based "reactionary" group, when he can easily join any of the 1,123 "gangs" in the country, where there is BIG money to be made ?
Answer: Not this century.
why is the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panther Party more active than ever when (see details)?
Beacsue now they feel they are in power and can accomplish more. Like passing more govt aid programs or threatening voters outside voting booths that if they dont vote a certain way they will beat them because they know Eric Holder will not launch an investigation into it.
What will you do when Obama militarizes the New Black Panther Party?
I am more afraid of his plans to force middle and high school students into servitude, which happens to be against the constitution, please answer my question:
"Obama will call on CITIZENS OF ALL AGES to serve America, by developing a plan to REQUIRE 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year"
How do I contact Eric Holder about joining the New Black Panther Party?
Office of the Attorney General
Before you join the NBPP you might want to consider this:
What does the original Black Panther Party think about the New Black Panthers? Several members of the original group as well as members of the Huey P. Newton Foundation (named after the co-founder of the original party) have registered their repugnance of the new movement. The Newton Foundation released a statement, which denounced the new party, stating that the new group took on the name of “Black Panthers” when they had failed “to find its own legitimacy in the black community.”
If the original members are denouncing the New Black Panther Party, why should the Justice Department give them acknowledgement and even, favor? Eric Holder needs to uphold the justice he has sworn to maintain. This justice is in the best interests for all the people - both black and white.
This group has a history of aggression. During the late 1960s, this group was involved in a series of violent confrontations with the police and numerous court cases. One of the most famous trials was that of Huey Newton for killing a policeman in 1967. In addition, Bobby Seale, one of the “Chicago Eight” was charged and convicted of conspiracy to violently disrupt the Democratic National Convention of 1968 (conviction later overturned).
The Black Panther ideology of hate is at the very roots of the organization. For example, two of its leaders, Khalid Abdul Muhammad, who led the Black Panthers from 1993-2001, and Malik Zulu Shabazz, his successor, have made numerous anti-Semitic statements. They have spoken hatefully, laying the issues of the Holocaust, slavery, and even September 11th events at the Jews’ feet. The Party holds to a conspiracy theory that states that 4000 Jews called in “sick” that day as they had advance knowledge of the attacks. o_O
Liberals: Do you condone the racist actions of the New Black Panther Party?
I am not a liberal, but would like to add a point about this question. Most liberals will deny that racism against whites exists, which is ridiculous when considering the statistics of black on white crime in the United States.
Why is it people can't see Bush dropped the charges against the new Black Panther party?
Perhaps the media kept it quiet, just like when Bush flew the Bin Laden Family from the U.S. back to Saudi Arabia within 2 days after 9/11, but that was most likely done because of their ties in the oil business.
Is it true that the new black panther party threaten to murder glenn beck and then shred him into pieces?
Probably. Glenn is snitching them out.
And you know how criminals hate snitches .....
... "a New Black Panther chiding African-American passersby:
"You want freedom? You are going to have to kill some crackers. You might have to kill some of their babies."
The "New Black Panther" didn't mean anything bad .... he was just explaining Obama's new Health Care Plan.
new member? I thought he founded it with Reverend Repulsive.
Him, that manatee in pumps he drags around can stop humiliating me any day now. He can go back to bowling and basketball bracketts now and keep his mouth shut.
Why does Barrack Hussein Obama hide his membership in the predominately Muslim New Black Panther Party?
You are mistake. Obama was a member of the Socialist, New Party, not the New Black Panthers. However, you are correct that the Obama Justice Department declined to prosecute the New Black Panthers for a clear case of voter intimidation. Go to Fox News to watch the Megan Kelly interview with the honorable whistle-blower, J. Christian Adams.
PJM Exclusive: Unequal Law Enforcement Reigns at Obama’s DOJ (UPDATED: Adams Discusses this Article on Fox News)
Earlier this month, I resigned from the DOJ after bringing the New Black Panther voter intimidation case. Longstanding biases within the Civil Rights Division are hostile to a race-neutral enforcement of some civil rights laws. (Click here for Adams on
Soon after his confirmation, Attorney General Eric Holder labeled us a nation of cowards, a people supposedly unwilling or afraid to discuss race. Based on my experience as an attorney at the Civil Rights Division at the Justice Department, Holder has far more to fear from that discussion than do the rest of us.
If we had that frank, truthful discussion about race, we’d learn that the Obama administration doesn’t believe some civil rights laws protect every American. The Bush Civil Rights Division was willing to protect all Americans from racial discrimination; during the Obama years, the Holder years, only some Americans will be protected. Americans have a right to know and judge the racial policies of the administration they elected in 2008.
The dismissal of the voter intimidation lawsuit against armed New Black Panthers in Philadelphia is the most prominent example of this hostility toward race-neutral enforcement of civil rights laws. But that dismissal is far from the only manifestation of the beliefs infesting the Department. Many other cases and decisions — some of which I will detail below — are in question and deserve scrutiny.
Exclusive: Race Was Reason Holder Dropped Black Panther Case
How long do you believe the New Black Panther Party will last?
I agree with a previous answer: 2012. This is one of my biggest pet peeves or whatever. Securing our borders will lead to "racial profiling", saying the "n" word means you must be a racist, being a minority gives you a tremendous advantage in earning scholarships, and the list goes on. Where is all the political correctness now? I don't like being called a "cracker" anymore than I like the new black panther party calling for extermination of the white race. I'm tired of the double standard. There's more racism towards caucasions than any other denomination, yet caucasions are always the "racist".
What do you think about the New Black Panther Party?
They supported his election. Obama even touted their endorsement on his website, even though the Southern Poverty Law Center labeled them a hate group.
Overall, they are a collection of racist scum, which is why I wasn't surprised that they endorsed Obama (birds of a feather). I'm not surprised that they turned against Obama since he is bombing his Muslim brethren.
Why do you think that a representative of the New Black Panther Party (Shabazz) is saying their comments are?
Without racism, the panthers are nothing. So they must keep it alive or they will dissappear. Hate drives black panthers unfortunately. They could be the most positive influence in the United States when it comes to black white relations. Leaders of the panther party do not want that because the true patriotic black person would rise to power and the ones that spew hate would be dethroned. Black leadership needs to take the riegns and raise the people up with positive thinking. Do you really believe a racist country would have ever elected a person of color if it was racist. The panther movement cannot survive on positive messages so they must spew hate.
Should we as citizens demand an investigation of the New Black Panther Party?
Yes, no question about it. We must demand the charges against the Black Panthers that were intimidating voters be reinstated and the laws of this land be upheld. This is a hate filled group and their agenda is toxic to all Americans. Obama and Holder, why did you let these lawbreakers go free? Where is the justice here? Voter intimidation will NOT be tolerated and you are accountable to the American people to uphold the law ! What is going on?????? Shall we rename the Department of Justice to the department of INJUSTICE ? Your motives are painfully clear ! We must take America back !!!
What do average Black people think of the New Black Panther Party and other Black Supremacist Groups?
difference between black and white nationalism
whites want every race besides their race out of the country [they also want to ally with asians for a tad bit of help] but the main idea in that sentence is they think they own america and they want it for themselves EVEN THOUGH THEY WERENT THE 1st ONES HERE..-cough eherm-
black nationalist want to stay seperated from whites and classify all non white and non yellow people as allies
Has the New Black Panther Party been involved in any murders?
If they have we wouldn't know about it because with the way the F.B.I operates they wouldn't be around for long if they drew any attention to themselves especially if it were a group or orginization and murder were involved?
Why is the new black panther party allowed to use the "black panther" name?
The new founder claimed that it was a "revival" of the original Black Panther Party...Although the original founders claim that there "is no new BPP."
I don't know what the laws are on re-using a political party nomination.
Is Obamas Attorney General encouraging the New Black Panther Party 2 intimidate voters in New Jersey tomorrow?
Anyone objecting to the voter intimidation by the New Black Panthers ("NBP") will be labeled a "racist", and violent actions taken by the NBT will be rationalized as "self defense against racists" by the Obama (swt) administration.
How do you feel about the new black panther party supporting osama bin laden?
In light of all of the threats coming from the New Black Panthers, along with the obvious case of voter intimidation committed by the group, and now evidence that they have aligned themselves with al Queda and bin Laden, the question we need to ask the federal government is…Are the New Black Panthers considered terrorists?
This group should be infiltrated and broken up, just as we did with the Ku Klux Klan in the 1960’s.
Watch the sickening video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8uMM58a6SE&feature=player_embedded
You’d think that would be a pretty easy thing to denounce, right? I mean, who could really support a man like this?
Oh, right! The Attorney General of the United States! Of course! Because this case should totally have been dismissed. Nothing to see here, folks!
Meanwhile, the New Black Panther Chairman Malik Shabazz can’t even bring himself to denounce the killing of white babies. Check out this Mediaite interview.
How do you feel about the New Black Panther Party?
I tend to agree with your comments.
I'm not Black, I'm Hispanic, and a frustration I have about questions like yours is that readers will automatically call us racist if we have any negative comments about Black organizations. I think as bad as the KKK was and is, the New Black Panther Party do almost as much harm.
Any polarizing element will only bring people further apart instead of helping people come together. There are horrible and lazy Black people out there. But, there are also horrible and lazy Hispanics, whites, Asians and Middle Eastern people too. We are not all a perfect race, but we should at least attempt to live together in harmony. (No, I'm not trying to write a song!)
I think what happens with these polarizing people is that they can't get acknowledgment or fame in the mainstream of America, so they gravitate to these fringe elements to get their glory. They are more concerned with themselves instead of being loyal to any one group or people.
