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.”

The New Black Pan­ther Party for Self Defense (NBPP), the largest orga­nized anti-Semitic and racist black mil­i­tant group in Amer­ica, is offer­ing a $10,000 reward for the “cap­ture” of George Zim­mer­man, the man who shot and killed an African-American teenager in Florida last month.

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.
