New Black Panthers to protest ‘non-blacks’
The New Black Panther Party — an organization known largely for their intimidation of voters outside a Philadelphia precinct — has announced plans for a “National Day of Action and Unity” — ironically urging followers (on their day of unity) to boycott all “non-black business” on April 23.
The New Black Panthers plan to protest non-black establishments and entities via “rallies, marches, demonstrations, programs, and confrontations” in over 60 cities.
“Because blacks worldwide are dissatisfied at their current condition,” the Panther’s announcement explains.
The group urges the authorities to leave them be, not to worry about the late April protests.
“This is organized by a new younger leadership un-approved by our former slave or colonial master,” they explain. “We are grassroots activists, youths, residents, union members, community residents, spiritual people, revolutionaries and freedom fighters who have decided to take a stand together April 23rd.”
The New Black Panthers say they are trying to get more attention for the plight of blacks everywhere and will not rest until they are heard.
“[W]e are taking vigilantly to the streets, police stations, projects, courthouses, State Capitols, houses of racists, morgues, jails and anywhere our people can be found and the fight can be found for justice!” they declare.” “We will rattle the enemy and those who are asleep to show and prove the world we are wide-awake!”
The Anti-Defamation League spoke out against the protest Monday, citing the New Black Panther’s proclivity for outspoken racism and anti-semitism.
“The New Black Panther Party (NBPP), the largest organized anti-Semitic and racist Black militant group in America, has used troubling language to describe several of the events. The group has stated that opposing Jews and “Zionism” is one of the “pressing issues” they wish to address, among myriad other social and political issues,” The ADL wrote in a release.
