Malik Zulu Shabazz at Geor­gia State

New Black Pan­ther Party (NBPP) chair­man Malik Zulu Shabazz has resorted once again to pro­mot­ing anti-Semitic con­spir­a­cies; this time dur­ing his recent vis­its to two Geor­gia uni­ver­sity campuses.

Dur­ing his “Role and Respon­si­bil­ity of the Black Stu­dent col­lege tour,” which con­sisted of an April 25 lec­ture at Clark Atlanta Uni­ver­sity and an April 26 talk at Geor­gia State Uni­ver­sity, Shabazz invoked anti-Semitic themes of Jew­ish finan­cial con­trol and manip­u­la­tion, claim­ing that Blacks have “been cheated out of [their] divine des­tiny by a cheat­ing sys­tem, and a cheat­ing peo­ple who have cheated us.”

Shabazz claimed that he had “shock­ing and reveal­ing infor­ma­tion” regard­ing “white Jew­ish enter­tain­ment firms who con­trol our artists… Oprah Win­frey and Michael Jack­son and Bey­once and all of them.” He also dis­cussed “pulling a cover off of the so-called Jews who are exploit­ing our peo­ple,” imply­ing Jew­ish and white con­trol of Howard Uni­ver­sity, refer­ring to “pup­pet mas­ters” that set up tra­di­tion­ally Black col­leges “to pro­duce a sub­servient student.”

In a digres­sion about fash­ion designer Marc Jacobs, who Shabazz mis­char­ac­ter­izes as a dia­mond mer­chant, Shabazz asked the audi­ence for “the big Jew­ish guy’s name that sells the dia­monds” and then admon­ished rap­pers, refer­ring to them as “high paid slaves,” to “stop jock­ing Jacob and come to Africa and get your own dia­mond mine.”

Shabazz also used his plat­form to deny Jew­ish his­tory say­ing, “The orig­i­nal Jew is not Shi­mon Peres. The orig­i­nal Jew is not Bibi Netanyahu. He is an imposter. The Jew and so-called Israel is an imposter…I guess they’ll say that’s anti-Semitic, but truth is truth.”

Dur­ing the cam­pus vis­its, Shabazz, along with NBPP Atlanta Chair­woman Nadia Assata Shakur, pitched the stu­dent audi­ences to become more involved with the NBPP and encour­aged them to stay in touch by tex­ting their infor­ma­tion to the party in order to learn about the “ben­e­fits to being part of us” such as orga­nized trips to Africa. There appeared to have about a dozen or fewer stu­dents in atten­dance at each visit.

On that note, Shabazz also announced the for­ma­tion of a “new Black travel agency” which he hopes to use to take “at least one thou­sand” NBPP mem­bers to visit Africa start­ing in June 2014. This announce­ment comes after a del­e­ga­tion of NBPP lead­ers returned from South Africa and Zim­babwe in March with plans to expand NBPP’s inter­na­tional activ­ity and outreach.

Accord­ing to Shabazz, the tour was par­tially spon­sored by Hip Hop Enquirer Mag­a­zine.
