In a recent interview on Black Panther radio, New Black Panther Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz had a very ‘spiritual’ discussion with Minister Hashim Nzinga, the appointed Spiritual Leader of the Panthers. Min. Nzinga, 49, was just released from the DeKalb County Jail in Atlanta last week after serving 150 days for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.
Nzinga was convicted in February of deposit account fraud. In March, while on probation for that felony, Nzinga allegedly sold a handgun to a pawn shop. He was arrested at the home of his probation officer on March 26th.
Nzinga is most notorious for his posting a $10,000 bounty for the the capture of George Zimmerman, the man who killed Trayvon Martin. The highly controversial Martin case is ongoing in Florida, with Zimmerman currently being charged with second degree murder.
In his first interview after being released, Nzinga declared that he was innocent and that his entire incarceration was a “set up by this white devil.”
When asked about the Trayvon Martin case, the spiritual leader went into a screaming, profanity-laced rant, implicating Zimmerman in not only the murder of Martin, but bringing up past race-related killings in America.
“This man gotta pay for this, man!”
Nzinga regularly, emotionally repeated the mantra that “nobody paid” in the past:
“Nobody paid for Emmett, man. Nobody really paid for King. Nobody paid for Medgar Evers. Nobody paid for Patrice Lumumba. Nobody paid for Malcom X. Nobody paid for the four girls bombed in the church, but this one gon’ pay, man.”
Nzinga then referred to the 1964 “Mississippi Burning” case where three civil rights workers went missing and were eventually found murdered. The KKK was implicated in the event that drew massive national attention.
Again, Nzinga says “nobody paid” for that:
“They found twenty-something black bodies while they were looking for them two Jews out there in Mississippi who got killed trying to have the voter registration. Nobody paid for those bodies.”
Nzinga emotionally yelled that “nobody ever has to pay for a black man’s death” in this country. He went on to condemned the “black FBI agents, black CIA agents, black president, black attorney general” for wanting to limit the rights of blacks to freely speak up.
Nzinga then detailed his recounting of the Trayvon Martin murder using racial slurs and eventually inferring that white people will give money to have black children murdered:
“Shoot this baby point-blank range in the chest, no one arrest his monkey a**. Then he turns around and be played like an angel. White people raised over $300,000 and put it in his bank account overnight. They will pay you to kill our babies.“
In some of his closing remarks on the interview, Nzinga implores that God will get the Panthers through this and deliver them from the “hells of North America.” The spiritual leader rants, borderline hysterically, and calls Zimmerman a “racist bastard” before being cut off by New Black Panther Chairman Shabazz, who, while laughing, apologizes for the bluntness of the remarks.
“Our Brother just got out of jail, and you know the pressure the white devil puts on us there,” Shabazz explained. Nzinga is now a free man. The rest of the interview with Shabazz angled toward how to further integrate the spiritual leader into the ranks of the Black Panthers where he can begin his own NBPP chapter.
