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.
