New Black Panther Party Advisor Calls For Killing In Ferguson Aftermath

Mauricelm-Lei Millere, an advisor to the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), is using social media to call for the death of the police officer who shot Michael Brown and for violence against white people in general, inflaming the already tense situation in Ferguson, Missouri.

On September 15, Millere, who is currently in Ferguson, posted an image of Officer Darren Wilson on Facebook and wrote, “When you find Darren Wilson you know what to do! Whoever finds him knows what must be done! Take everything that he took from Mike Brown.”

The day before, Millere posted on Facebook that Wilson is “wanted Dead or Alive!” echoing calls made by the NBPP, the largest organized anti-Semitic and racist Black militant group in the country, for the “dead or alive” capture of George Zimmerman, the man who, in February 2012, shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

Millere also called for violence against Martin Baker, an African-American congressional candidate who publicly supported due process for Darren Wilson. On September 11, Millere wrote that Baker “must be caught, beat, drug, and whipped to the point of seeing the light for supporting white racist murderer Darren Wilson…We must physically beat this jiggaboo…” Later that day, Millere commented on his post, which included a photo of Baker: “Get a good look at this a**h**e. Find him, detain him, beat him, and await further instructions.”

In these Facebook posts, Millere lists his affiliation as being with the African American Defense League (AADL), an organization Millere started on September 10, which unabashedly promotes violence against white people.

On September 11, Millere wrote via the AADL’s Facebook profile, “The whiteman wants your blood! How many of us has he killed and enslaved? Trillions!…We need the action that makes them pay attention. An eye for an eye philosophy! Arm yourself in Ferguson, Missouri and across America! A life for a life!” He continued, “Also, we must go to their comfortable neighborhoods and raid those stores. It is time to LOOT & BURN those stores…” The post’s image depicts a man holding a rifle.

Millere changed the AADL’s Facebook profile picture to a photo of a handgun on September 10 and wrote “Shoot 1st.” Millere subsequently updated the AADL’s cover photo to a gun, and commented on the photo that, “There comes a time when one must do what is necessary beyond cost. Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere.”

Additionally,Malik Zulu Shabazz, the former NBPP leader and current leader of the Black Lawyers for Justice who has a long history of anti-Semitism and racism, appears to be involved with the AADL. On September 13, Millere posted that Shabazz is a board member of AADL and Shabazz responded positively, saying that the he came up with the name and concept behind AADL but that he gave it to Millere. On September 14, Shabazz posted the following on AADL’s Facebook page: “Much success to the African American Defense League—The AADL. We need a broad based organization that will organize to defend our hunan [sic] rights.”

While media reports sometimes call Millere an NBPP “leader” and Millere describes himself as a “Lead Advisor at Black Riders Liberation Party, Lead Advisor and Liason [sic] at Black Panther Party and Lead Advisor and Liason [sic] at New Black Panther Party,” it is not clear exactly what role he plays with the NBPP. In September 2011, Millere and Shabazz appeared together at an event in Columbus, Ohio, and in October 2010, Millere appears to have organized an event for the “Arkansas New Black Panther Party” in Little Rock.

New Black Panther Party Announces New Chairman, Same Hateful Message

Malik Zulu Shabazz announced that he is stepping down from his position as National Chairman of the racist and anti-Semitic New Black Panther Party (NBPP) to focus on his career as a lawyer with the Black Lawyers for Justice, an organization he founded in 1996.

Shabazz made the announcement on the NBPP’s online radio broadcast on Monday. He noted that despite leaving his position as National Chairman, he will continue to serve the NBPP as a “spiritual guide.”

His replacement is Hashim Nzinga, who previously served as the NBPP’s Chief of Staff and has been involved with the NBPP since 1994 when he met Khalid Muham­mad and served as his personal assistant.

Like Shabazz, Nzinga has a long history of racism and anti-Semitism. In a June 2013 online radio broadcast, for example, Nzinga claimed that Jews con­spire to pro­mote a neg­a­tive image of Black youth through their sup­posed con­trol of the media, stating, “The Jews’ news…shows us before the world look­ing like damn fools” and called for a boycott of companies that “con­tinue to help the Jews’ news make our youth look like buf­foons before the world.”

In January 2010, Nzinga accused Jews of having disproportionate power over the media and entertainment industries, which he asserted was achieved by exploiting alliances with Blacks during the Civil Rights era. Jews, he argued, “used us as cannon fire while they directed our leaders, they directed Dr. King, they directed the NAACP, they directed those who they control.”

Nzinga further protested what he sees as a Jewish monopoly on suffering, stating, “If we mention our Holocaust even the Jews get mad, but you say something about their Holocaust, they call you anti-Semitic.” Nzinga also claimed that Jews had fore­knowl­edge of Sep­tem­ber 11 attacks dur­ing a 2005 appear­ance on Han­nity & Colmes.

Malik Shabazz also announced that National Spokesman Chawn Kweli will take over Nzinga’s former role of NBPP Chief of Staff. King Samir Shabazz, notorious for rants in which he calls for violence against whites and others, will remain in his position of National Field Marshall.

New Black Panthers Organizing “National Day of Action” in Florida

The New Black Panther Party (NBPP), which offered a $10,000 reward for the “capture” of George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed an African-American teenager Trayvon Martin last month, is planning additional activity in Florida.

The largest organized anti-Semitic and racist black militant group in America, the NBPP released a flyer on its website with a photo of Zimmerman’s face in the crosshairs. The flyer promotes a “National Day of Action and Absence” on April 9, calling for “a general strike and mass action by brothers and sisters in unity.”

Last week, the NBPP released a wanted poster with Zimmerman’s picture, saying “wanted dead or alive.”

In a radio interview with the syndicated radio program The Muslim Street, Malik Zulu Shabazz, NBPP National Chairman, said his group is also planning a “county-wide and state-wide defense training and community patrols to protest against racial violence and attacks” in Sanford prior to the day of action.

The events are being organized under the banner of Black Lawyers for Justice (BLJ), Shabazz’s legal advocacy group. Like the NBPP, BLJ combines bigotry with militant messages of Black Nationalism under the guise of championing civil rights and promoting black pride and consciousness.

The NBPP’s Tampa chapter Chief of Staff, Michelle Williams, spoke on the group’s web radio program on April 2. “I am for violence if non-violence means we continue to postpose a solution to the American Black man’s problem just to avoid violence,” she said.

Williams added, “This could not have happened in LA, because them brothers up there, ain’t scared to riot. This could not have happened in St. Petersburg, Florida, where the Black man over there ain’t scared to kill a cracker…If someone put their hands on you, you better send that goddam cracker to the cemetery grave.”

The Tampa chapter’s website describes the reward as: “NBPP $10000 Bounty for George Zimmerman JUSTICE!”

On the same radio program, Mikhail Muhammad, the NBPP’s Florida representative, said the group has 20 new recruits in the city of Sanford. Muhamamd previously told CNN, “I don’t obey the white man’s law, I don’t follow the American law…we decided to craft language to put pressure on the united snakes, – because these are snakes, government – to arrest him because when the people find him, he may not be alive.”
