Militant organisation of Black Americans founded in Oakland, California in 1966 by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. Called upon Blacks to arm themselves against their oppressors. At the same time, provided free breakfasts for children in ghetto areas, (financed by donations from local merchants and wealthy sympathisers), and opened schools and medical centres. Organisation waned as leaders fled USA after arrests on various charges, police shootings and in-house fighting.
The Black Panthers is a fascinating movement, so challenging and controversial to American culture.

May 14 Word of the Day
Intelligence agency term for "psychological operation". A government or corporate-sponsored operation, usually taking the form of a "terrorist attack" or "crazed gunman on a spree", with the intent of panicking the public into demanding more police and laws inhibiting freedom. Psyops are usually carried out by drugging a civilian or group of civilians with aggression-promoting drugs, psyching them up, arming them, and sending them out to commit mayhem. Government-sponsored terrorism. See also blackshirts, conspiracy
Person A: Man, that nutcase Martin Bryant guy shot 35 people in Tasmania!

Person B: No, he wasn't a nutcase, that was just a psyop so the government could have an excuse to ban guns.

A group started for the black community when the blacks were oppressed in America. During that time, the group was for the equality of blacks. Since then, they have changed to become a group of anti-white, racist blacks who would, ironcially, rather live in the days of hate towards blacks, rather than live in the now where they are considered equal. As long as you're black, the Black Panthers will support you, even if you are a killer or rapist. The Black Panthers will never admit that the ancestors of their "brothers" in Africa played a part in making the blacks slaves by selling them to "whitey," and that there were whites involved with the underground railroads so to free the slaves. They make sure to remember that there were many bastard whites that were pro-slavery and for the hatred towards blacks. They will never remember that there were whites then, and many now, that are not hateful towards the black race and find them to be just as important and valuable as whites.
The Black Panthers have become what they hate most...racists. Congratulations, Black KKK.
