New Black Panthers Plan Major Social Events for April 23

April 19th, 2011

By Dan Miller

Some doubtless cool, peaceful and anti-racist social gatherings are planned by the New Black Panthers in response to “anti-Black and anti-Muslim” efforts of Tea Party groups and others.

Here is the Black Panther’s Mission Statement for the parties.

APRIL 23rd DAY OF ACTION AND UNITY

MISSION STATEMENT

Whereas, serious problems exist in Black or African communities nationally and worldwide, according to our peoples opinions having been duly considered, these pressing and urgent issues include:

Disunity, apathy, racism, violence, self genocide, poor health and health care, self hatred, ignorance, mis-education, white supremacy, gang warfare, military aggression, police harassment and brutality, gentrification, economic underdevelopment, corruption in government, attacks on school systems, integration, disorganization, poverty, homelessness, disunity, lack of self responsibility, no knowledge of our history, a conspiracy to destroy Black men, abuse of Black women, inadequate land and property ownership, economic exploitation, weak self defense and military force, uncle-tomism, neo-colonialism, imperialism and Zionism, neglect of our youth, blight in our communities, disrespect of our elders, political weakness, corrupt politicians, unfair budget cuts, criminal injustice system, political prisoners, prisoner abuse, under-employment, weak agricultural and economic infrastructure, biological warfare, drug trafficking, environmental hazards, attacks on unions, biased media and press coverage, the Patriot Act, harassment of Muslims, inadequate concern for Africa, post traumatic slavery disorder, lack of sincere leadership, abuse of religious power, religious exploitation, depression, moral perversion, bad character, a sick love for, and fear of our former slave-colonia master and many other obstacles and enemies.

Whereas, we have collectively reasoned and are resolved to take action in unity and are determined to define, develop and defend that which is in the best interests of our people, recognizing that remaining stagnant and silent as a people is no longer an option.

Whereas, we have declared, in Unity, that we are dissatisfied and ready for complete constructive change – which is Revolution.

Therefore, our demand is an immediate, non-negotiable demand for Power, Human Rights, Freedom, Justice, Equality and Self Determination for Black Peoples. Our demand is for a Nation and world of our own, with Africa as our Free and Independent motherland. All of the above must be achieved by any means necessary.

All forms of enemy imposed and self- imposed oppression be identified, attacked and neutralized at once.

Therefore, on Saturday April 23rd, we are taking vigilantly to the streets, the projects, the police stations, the homeless shelters, courthouses, the State and City Capitols, morgues, jails, and anywhere our people or injustice can be found, in order to shake and rattle them to life.

AND WE ARE ALSO CALLING FOR A BUY BLACK ONLY WEEKEND THE WEEKEND OF APRIL 23RD AND A BOYCOTT OF ALL NON-BLACK BUSINESSES.

Therefore, we must have a new mass awakening of Black People. The sleeping giant of the planet. We will teach, educate, uplift, confront, expose, recruit, train, operate and demonstrate, organize and mobilize as never before. We shall put aside our petty differences, egos, affiliations and denominations for the greater goals of unity, solidarity, nation and worldwide struggle. We shall unite for a common cause.

BE IT RESOLVED THIS DAY MONDAY MARCH 14TH 2011

WE PLEDGE THAT APRIL 23, 2011, “NATIONAL-INTERNATIONAL DAY OF ACTION AND UNITY”,

A FIRST STEP IN MOBILIZATION THAT SHALL LEAD TO THE MASS ORGANIZATION AND LIBERATION OF OUR PEOPLE

“Up You Mighty Nation You Can Accomplish What You Will”

Y’all come, y’hear. Solidarity is way cool and with about sixty parties planned worldwide there is no excuse not to participate in the creation of a brave new world with no prejudice or other racism. According to the Daily Caller, “The group urges the authorities to leave them be, not to worry about the late April protests.” What? Me Worry? Good times will be had by all and there could not possibly be anything of concern. The Holder Justice Department’s brave inactions concerning benign attempts at voter persuasion in Philadelphia and elsewhere suggest that there will be no federal interference. A different approach would do a disservice to, as Attorney General Holder phrased it, “my people.” Let the fun and games begin!

    I’ll admit that this is the first I’ve heard of the NBP’s “Day of Action and Unity.” The good news may be that’s because they’re such fringe players that no one really cares what they do.

    The people shown in the video reinforce the depressing reality of how ignorant people can be.

    Thomas Jefferson:

    If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.


  3. Tom Carter |

    Jefferson also wrote, in a letter to John Adams in 1813, about a “natural aristocracy” based on “virtue and talents. He closed the letter thus:

    It suffices for us, if the moral and physical condition of our own citizens qualifies them to select the able and good for the direction of their government, with a recurrence of elections at such short periods as will enable them to displace an unfaithful servant, before the mischief he meditates may be irremediable.

    Jefferson also believed that only educated and informed people could govern themselves successfully. For him and most thinkers of his era, the idea of universal suffrage, in which every ignorant yahoo had a vote equal to everyone else’s simply by managing to have been born, was ridiculous.

    Virtually every civic right or responsibility is limited by qualifications. Jury service, serving in the military, political office (age limitations, etc), professional practice (licensing), etc are all limited by the demonstration of qualifications. Only voting, perhaps the most important civic duty of every citizen, is open to all, even the most profoundly ignorant. Why in the world do we think that’s a virtuous arrangement?

    The only answer I can give is that dêmos Kratos is held out as a good thing, though I can’t think of any philosophers except for the for some of the late Romance Era philosophers and onward that do.

    Another fitting quote, this time by Madison:

    A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.
