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.

King Samir Shabazz: Bomb White Churches and Kill White Babies

In an August 13 New Black Panther Party online radio broadcast, the group’s National Field Marshal from Philadelphia King Samir Shabazz, went off on an vicious tirade about bombing white churches and killing white babies.

If Blacks want to be free, Shabazz explained, “you’re going to have to kill some of these babies, just born three seconds ago. You’re going to have to go into the God damn nursery and just throw a damn bomb in the damn nursery and just kill everything white in sight that ain’t right.”

Later in his rant, Shabazz describes how white churches are also a legitimate target: “We gonna need preachers going into the cracker churches throwing hand grenades on early Sunday morning when the cracker got his hands up, ‘please white Jesus!’ Well we gonna throw a bomb in that God damn church, burn up the cracker, burn up the cracker Jesus, and burn up some cracker white supremacy.”

In typical Shabazz fashion, he also described in detail how he would like to go into New Jersey and Pennsylvania suburbs to “drag some of these god damn rusty dusty ass crackers out of their homes, skin their asses alive, hang their asses up by some damn rope in some trees, drag them up and down the streets by God damn trucks, sick the pit bulls on them, pour acid on their asses, dump them in a God damn river, bring them back up, bust them in the head with a rock.”

Shabazz also discussed the need for AK-47s, M16s, grenade launchers, and other weapons for a NBPP military.

Shabazz’s outburst is the latest is a series of violent messages from NBPP members on Black Power Radio, hosted by NBPP Spokesman Chawn Kweli. On April 2, the NBPP’s Tampa Bay Chief of Staff Michelle Williams expressed support for violence against whites in aftermath of the shooting of Trayvon Martin. And a June 25 episode fea­tur­ed Gen­eral T.A.C.O. (Take All Cap­i­tal­ists Out) of the Black Rid­ers Lib­er­a­tion Party ranting about hunt­ing down white peo­ple. He adds that after they die “we should dig them up, and kill them again! Bury them, dig them up, and kill them again, and again, and again!”
