Black Power, A beautiful statement and a symbol of the ultimate result of the Black community operating under a unified front. This is the propaganda used to fuel the voices that make up one of the more recent powerful factions, that is The New Black Panther Party.
The Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation has already denounced the New Black Panther Party, as a “small band of African Americans” that’s found no legitimacy of their own, even in the black community, many blacks see it as a hate group. No better than the Ku Klux Klan. The foundation also condemns the association of The New Black Panther Party to the original Black Panthers. The foundation goes as far as to imply that The New Black Panther Party actually incites hate, rather than resolve it.
This combined with the assault from the media, as a result of their own public miscues result in the world overlooking the actual mission statement of this movement, protecting and strengthening the black community. I feel the intentions should shine in as much light as the faults.
With that being said, I think it The New Black Panthers needs to undergo serious reform and organization if the organization expects to gain legitimacy among any community. The media has a seemingly endless supply of representatives of the NBPP harboring constant displays of bigotry. Whether it was at the polling station back in 2008 at the time Barack Obama was elected, rap songs talking about all types of racism -why the political faction rap to be a good outlet is beyond me-, or inarticulate outbursts demonizing other races and groups, the NBPP has yet to find a way to balance the scales with regard to their blunders and successes. This serves as an obstacle to any group hoping to gain a following, as they can so easily be demonized.
I’m sure there’s a lot more to this situation than what the media has allowed to gain attention, but in the society we live in, unity holds precedence in power. A ten-point program that basically asks for segregation to be reestablished won’t really do the trick of putting the black community where it needs to be. While there’s obvious need for reform in the black community, these kinds of uncoordinated, hateful, aggressive methods of expression will only give those in control the necessary leverage to keep the imbalances that plague our people in tact.
In short, If you’re going to fight the injustices of America, don’t’ say anything that can’t be proven or backed up, and If you’re going to go with the ill-advised approach, make sure the world can’t see and negatively judge you for it. A hate group has yet to win in this country, and I don’t see it happening now. No room to get caught slippin...Waaahh!!
