The Black Panther Party originated in Oakland, California in 1966. It was a revolutionary and socialist organization founded by Dr. Huey P. Newton who had earned a Ph.D. in Social Philosophy at UC Santa Cruz, and co-founder Bobby Seale, who was a member of the Afro-American Association. It had chapters in the Bay Area, Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia

The Black Panthers even worked with white groups such as the White Panther Party, which was formed in 1968 by Leni Sinclair and John Sinclair. And The Weather Underground group, founded by Bill Ayers at the University of Michigan in 1969. AKA the 'Weathermen', their political theory made every campaign an anti-imperialist, and anti-racist campaign.

The Black Panthers had armed citizens monitor police officers in an effort to halt the widespread police brutality of blacks in numerous cities and states. The group initiated community social programs across the country, such as the Free Breakfast for Children Program, and People's Free Medical Centers. Kitchens across the US fed over 10,000 children every day before school.

Today: A group claiming to be the "New Black Panther Party" was formed in Texas. The Huey Newton Foundation, co-founder Bobby Seale, and the original party members insist it is an illegitimate hate group and they've strongly opposed it by stating "there is no new Black Panther Party"

"We named it the Black Panther Party because the nature of a black panther is that it never attacks. But if anyone attacks it or backs it into a corner, the panther comes up to wipe that aggressor or the attacker out, absolutely, resolutely, wholly, thoroughly, and completely" -Bobby Seale

"White youth must choose sides now. They must either fight on the side of the oppressed, or be on the side of the oppressor” -Bernardine Dohrn

"You don't fight racism with racism, the best way to fight racism is with solidarity" -Bobby Seale

"Racism cannot be separated from capitalism" -Angela Davis

The Black Panther Party was a revolutionary and socialist organization founded by Huey P. Newton who earned a Ph.D. in Social Philosophy, and co-founder Bobby Seale in Oakland, California 1966. It had chapters in the Bay Area, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia etc.

The Black Panthers even worked with the White Panther Party founded in 1968 by Leni Sinclair and John Sinclair, and The Weather Underground group, formed at the University of Michigan, lead by Bill Ayers in 1969. AKA the 'Weathermen', their political theory sought to make every struggle an anti-imperialist, anti-racist struggle; out of this came the Weathermen's critical concepts that would later be known as 'white privilege'

The Black Panthers had armed citizens monitor police officers to prevent police brutality of blacks from occurring in Oakland, California. The group initiated community social programs across the country, such as the Free Breakfast for Children Program, and People's Free Medical Centers. Their kitchen units across the US fed over 10,000 children every day before school.

Today: A group claiming to be the "New Black Panther Party" was formed in Dallas, Texas. The Huey Newton Foundation, co-founder Bobby Seale, and original party members have insisted this group is illegitimate and they've strongly opposed it by stating "there is no new Black Panther Party"

The Black Panther Party, a group of bigoted "black",
or "negro", or "colored" humans as simple to understand
(and categorize) as their caucasian counterparts, the
KKK, aka the Ku Klux Klan.

Their organization was originally intended to
promote civil rights and self-defense for black
americans, but quickly deteriorated into terrorism,
violence, and acts of intimidation in an attempt to
become what they vociferously accused "whitey" (ALL
white people) of being.

In their limited understanding, the words "bigot"
and "racist" only apply to those who aren't BLACK,
regardless what any black person says or does. That
is to say, a man of ANY race (other THAN black, Negro,
or Afro-american) who says the word "black", IS racist
or bigoted, while a black person directly calling
a white person WHITEY, HONKY, or CRACKER is NOT racist
or bigoted, they are simply "speaking their mind" or
"expressing themselves". (see Freedom of Speech)

Luckily, NOT all black Americans (or Afro-Americans,
or whatever is currently PC for black-folk that dont
want to be called black) are so ignorant, in the same
way that NOT all white-folk (or caucasians) are involved
in the stupidity which is the K.K.Klan, and merely want
to live their lives in the NEW Millenium, where, in the
last 100 years or so, there hasn't BEEN a single human
OWNED by another human.

A quick perusal of American history shows a great
abundance of WHITE (CELTIC) indentured or enslaved in
the U.S. as servants, and an even greater number of
CHINESE bought, sold, and/or traded like cattle in this
country's beginnings. Therefore, the U.S. government
and citizens INCLUDING any black folk who AREN'T celtic
or Chinese OWE the descendants of those irish and chinese
folks REPARATIONS. (Right?)

The cost of ignorance is HIGH, the cost of Stupidity is
"Affirmative Action", Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and
Bill & Billery Clinton.

In short, PREJUDICED PEOPLE are ALL ALIKE.
The Black panther party has gone the way of the KKK,
racist bitches who attempt to use the wrongs of
history to excuse their own racist and prejudicial
actions.
