New Black Panther Party Returns From Africa With New Goals And Same Message

The New Black Panther Party(NBPP), the largest organized anti-Semitic and racist black militant group in America, has announced plans to expand its international activity and outreach after a delegation of its leaders returned from a March trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe.

In the group’s online radio broadcasts on Black Power Radio in April, the NBPP leadership discussed the trip and their plans to increase membership through additional outreach in South America, the Caribbean, Canada and the rest of Africa.

In South Africa, the delegation met with members of the Pan-Africanist Congress of Azania, a minor pan-African political party, and in Zimbabwe they met with President Robert Mugabe’s cabinet (Mugabe did not attend the meeting). NBPP National Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz later made his support for the Zimbabwean dictator clear, offering to have a webcast up on the NBPP website “within 60 days” in support of Mugabe in the upcoming elections. He also hopes to have the webcast shown on the Nation of Islam (NOI)’s website.

Shabazz also said that over 200 Black organizations from around the world will convene in South Africa for a conference focusing on pan-Africanism on June 16, 2014, the anniversary of the Soweto Student Uprising that took place on the same day in 1976. Shabazz explained that Africa should be as central to African-Americans as “Israel is to the so-called Jew and all over the so-called Jewish Diaspora.”

Membership reports on the recent trip to Africa on Black Power Radio have frequently devolved into hateful rhetoric against whites, Jews, and other groups. National Spokesman Chawn Kweli referred to the NYPD as the “Jew York Police Department” and to the “Zionist-Jewish controlled media outlets.” National Field Mar­shal King Samir Shabazz, prone to often violent racist rants, called on NBPP members to shine their boots and press their uniforms, adding that the “crease should be able to cut that cracker’s throat in half and watch his head roll down the street.”

Samir Shabazz also called on Black Muslims to make their Hajj to Africa instead of to Mecca. “I hate to say this but Mecca is not my home. I’m a Muslim but…I can’t see myself walking around no black stone with those Goddamn crackers anyway.” Instead of participating in the ritual act of throwing stones during the pilgrimage to Mecca with “smelly Arabs and crackers,” he indicated that he would rather go to Africa and “throw some stones at six white peckerwoods.” Samir Shabazz also went on a homophobic rant, expressing dismay at seeing same-sex couples in Africa.  He said that it “blew his mind” since he didn’t know that “the white man got Africans faggin’ and saggin’ like they do in America.”
