Update: New Black Pan­thers Respond To King Samir Shabazz’s Arrest

New Black Pan­ther Party (NBPP) National Field Mar­shal King Samir Shabazz was arrested on June 20 in New York City for car­ry­ing a loaded, unli­censed firearm and the ille­gal wear­ing of body armor.

Shabazz, who has a tat­too on his face that reads “Kill Whitey,” is cur­rently being held on $75,000 bail and will appear in Man­hat­tan Crim­i­nal Court on June 26. The NYPD stopped Shabazz on his way out of a NBPP meet­ing about the group’s planned “Mil­lion Youth March” 15th anniver­sary rally, which is sched­uled take place in Harlem on Sep­tem­ber 7.

Two days after Shabazz was arrested, the NBPP held a “Stop the Attack on the Mil­lion Youth March: Free King Samir Shabazz Sup­port Rally” at Sylvia’s Restau­rant. Accord­ing to the NBPP web­site, the rally included New York City Coun­cil­man Charles Bar­ron and Pro­fes­sor Leonard Jef­fries of the City Col­lege of New York as keynote speakers.

Known for his rants that call for vio­lence, Shabazz has pub­licly stated that NBPP mem­bers should press their uni­forms so the crease could “cut that cracker’s throat in half and watch his head roll down the street.” In an August 2012 NBPP online radio broad­cast, he went on a vicious tirade describ­ing white nurs­eries and churches as legit­i­mate tar­gets for bombing.

The NBPP describes Shabazz’s arrest as an “attempt to stop the major orga­niz­ing efforts of the Mil­lion Youth March 15 year anniver­sary and slow down the progress of the pro­duc­tion of Black nation­al­ism.” They call on all “oppressed dark peo­ple of the planet” to “fight the efforts of the white dev­ils and Black Sam­bos by any means.”

Shabazz, whose real name is Maruse Heath, was pre­vi­ously arrested and released in 2008 for dis­or­derly con­duct after he and oth­ers inter­rupted a rally in Atlantic City. In 2009, Shabazz was impli­cated in a U.S. Depart­ment of Jus­tice suit after a voter intim­i­da­tion inci­dent  while he was head of the NBPP’s Philadel­phia chapter.

Shabazz is not the first NBPP leader to be arrested for weapons charges in recent years. In March 2012, Hashim Nzinga, NBPP Chief of Staff, was arrested and charged with pos­ses­sion of a firearm by a con­victed felon after try­ing to pawn a semi-automatic handgun.

New Black Panther Head Malik Zulu Shabazz Promotes Anti-Semitism On Campus

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.

New Black Panther Party Returns From Africa With New Goals And Same Message

The New Black Pan­ther Party(NBPP), the largest orga­nized anti-Semitic and racist black mil­i­tant group in Amer­ica, has announced plans to expand its inter­na­tional activ­ity and out­reach after a del­e­ga­tion of its lead­ers returned from a March trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe.

In the group’s online radio broad­casts on Black Power Radio in April, the NBPP lead­er­ship dis­cussed the trip and their plans to increase mem­ber­ship through addi­tional out­reach in South Amer­ica, the Caribbean, Canada and the rest of Africa.

In South Africa, the del­e­ga­tion met with mem­bers of the Pan-Africanist Con­gress of Aza­nia, a minor pan-African polit­i­cal party, and in Zim­babwe they met with Pres­i­dent Robert Mugabe’s cab­i­net (Mugabe did not attend the meet­ing). NBPP National Chair­man Malik Zulu Shabazz later made his sup­port for the Zim­bab­wean dic­ta­tor clear, offer­ing to have a web­cast up on the NBPP web­site “within 60 days” in sup­port of Mugabe in the upcom­ing elec­tions. He also hopes to have the web­cast shown on the Nation of Islam (NOI)’s website.

Shabazz also said that over 200 Black orga­ni­za­tions from around the world will con­vene in South Africa for a con­fer­ence focus­ing on pan-Africanism on June 16, 2014, the anniver­sary of the Soweto Stu­dent Upris­ing that took place on the same day in 1976. Shabazz explained that Africa should be as cen­tral to African-Americans as “Israel is to the so-called Jew and all over the so-called Jew­ish Diaspora.”

Mem­ber­ship reports on the recent trip to Africa on Black Power Radio have fre­quently devolved into hate­ful rhetoric against whites, Jews, and other groups. National Spokesman Chawn Kweli referred to the NYPD as the “Jew York Police Depart­ment” and to the “Zionist-Jewish con­trolled media out­lets.” National Field Mar­shal King Samir Shabazz, prone to often vio­lent racist rants, called on NBPP mem­bers to shine their boots and press their uni­forms, adding that the “crease should be able to cut that cracker’s throat in half and watch his head roll down the street.”

Samir Shabazz also called on Black Mus­lims to make their Hajj to Africa instead of to Mecca. “I hate to say this but Mecca is not my home. I’m a Mus­lim but…I can’t see myself walk­ing around no black stone with those God­damn crack­ers any­way.” Instead of par­tic­i­pat­ing in the rit­ual act of throw­ing stones dur­ing the pil­grim­age to Mecca with “smelly Arabs and crack­ers,” he indi­cated that he would rather go to Africa and “throw some stones at six white peck­er­woods.” Samir Shabazz also went on a homo­pho­bic rant, express­ing dis­may at see­ing same-sex cou­ples in Africa.  He said that it “blew his mind” since he didn’t know that “the white man got Africans fag­gin’ and sag­gin’ like they do in America.”
