New Black Panther Post-Summit Radio Broadcast Features Renewed Calls For Violent Confrontation

A June 25 New Black Pan­ther Party radio broad­cast fea­tured a num­ber of NBPP lead­ers dis­cussing their June 22–23, 2012, National Lead­er­ship Sum­mit in Geor­gia titled “Call to Action: Against the War on Black Peo­ple,” among other issues. The NBPP is the largest orga­nized anti-Semitic and racist black mil­i­tant group in America.

National NBPP Chair­man Malik Zulu Shabazz empha­sized that the main objec­tive of the sum­mit was to empower a cadre of young lead­er­ship to take the orga­ni­za­tion into the future. Shabazz explained that he doesn’t want the NBPP to become “a one man show” like other move­ments. This is espe­cially true, he argued, because the NBPP is sup­pos­edly not just an orga­ni­za­tion but a pro­vi­sional gov­ern­ment for Blacks in Amer­ica and even­tu­ally an actual government.

King Samir Shabazz, intro­duced on the broad­cast as the group’s “National Field Mar­shal,” praised what he felt was an extremely suc­cess­ful sum­mit but called for less talk­ing and more vio­lent action against whites. It’s time, he said, “to start crack­ing some crack­ers’ backs.” He also demanded that blacks stop spend­ing their money at busi­nesses belong­ing to “Kore­ans and Jews” and start wor­ry­ing about black sur­vival. Shabazz is known for vicious racist rants in which he sup­ports vio­lence against whites.

The most mil­i­tant rant, how­ever, came from Gen­eral T.A.C.O. (Take All Cap­i­tal­ists Out) of the Black Rid­ers Lib­er­a­tion Party. T.A.C.O. accused whites of push­ing crack cocaine, HIV/AIDS, guns, and unem­ploy­ment on Black com­mu­ni­ties in a con­stant attempt to exter­mi­nate them. He said, “the white man” knows there are pan­thers all over the coun­try ready to “hunt your pink ass down” and at one point yelled “Now die!”

“Once [white peo­ple] die,” T.A.C.O. added, “we should dig them up, and kill them again! Bury them, dig them up, and kill them again, and again, and again!” In a June 13 broad­cast, T.A.C.O. called on blacks to stand up for them­selves and not go “pas­sively like the Jews to the gas chambers.”

T.A.C.O. founded the Black Rid­ers in 1996 to unite rival gangs such as the Bloods and Crips to fight against “oppres­sive” white soci­ety, espe­cially the police. The goal, he explained, is to unite “street tribes” (gangs) to destroy cap­i­tal­ism, impe­ri­al­ism, and white civ­i­liza­tion as a whole.

Much of the remain­ing broad­cast focused on free­ing Hashim Nzinga, the for­mer NBPP Chief of Staff, who was arrested on weapons charges in March, and on the upcom­ing elec­tion. While some par­tic­i­pants praised Barack Obama as a strong role model for the Black com­mu­nity, he was also crit­i­cized for “shock­ing” for­eign poli­cies such as allegedly “orches­trat­ing the dia­bol­i­cal assas­si­na­tion of our brother Qaddafi” and mak­ing a “secret deal” with Israel that if the econ­omy is not doing well come elec­tion time, Israel will bomb Iran to help Obama gain votes.
