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.”

Mikhail Muhammad, the NBPP’s Florida representative, announced the reward during a protest in Sanford, Florida, on Saturday. He also indicated that the group’s national chairman, Malik Zulu Shabazz, was receiving donations from black entertainers and athletes. According to the group’s press release, the “goal is to increase the $10,000 reward up to $100,000.”

“[Zimmerman] should be fearful for his life,” Muhammad reportedly said. “You can’t keep killing black children.” In response to a question about whether he was inciting violence, Muhammad replied, “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”
 
Trayvon Martin’s death, which is being investigated by the Justice Department, has become a national story and member of the NBPP are known for inserting themselves in and enflaming high profile, racially charged issues around the country.

Prior to the NBPP’s announcement, Najee Muhammad, a former member of the group who now heads the Atlanta-based New Black Liberation Militia, announced his group’s plans to arrest Zimmerman and hand him over to federal authorities. “We’ll find him. We’ve got his mug shot and everything,” Najee Muhammad said on March 16.
 
Najee Muhammad, who served as the NBPP’s national field marshal, left the group a few years ago to form the New Black Liberation Militia and New Black Liberation Institute, which seeks to “ensure the survival of black people in the 21st century and beyond” and build a “strong black army to defend the back nation.” He describes himself as “The Top Student of Dr. Khallid Abdul Muhammad,” the virulently anti-Semitic former leader of the NBPP who died in February 2001.
