The New Black Panther Party, the racist and radical black power group, has a big day ahead of it this coming Saturday. According to its website, it's planning a massive 60-city "showdown." And the day of rage will include a protest of "non-black" businesses.
The group says it's establishing a home base at an office building in Harlem, an area it's modeling after revolutionary ground zero in Egypt.
"Like in Tahir square in Egypt we will establish this historic location for our revolution and our demands," the website explains. "Over 1,000 are expected in this historic outdoor political rally."
The site goes on to explain why its rallying:
As in other revolutions, protests and uprisings going on around the earth, a showdown is looming for Saturday April 23rd as marchers with the ”National International Day of Action and Unity” are furious andfrustrated with New York officials blatant discrimination and denial of their constitutional and human right to rally and march. Marchers are marching and rallying in 60 cities around America and in London and Africa to demand justice for Black People and improvement in our conditions.
But "rally" might not be the best term for it. The group, rather, uses other words including "confrontation," and says the protesters will use "whatever action is necessary to relieve oppressive conditions against Blacks in New York and around the planet." And apparently the law doesn't matter: it will hold the event "with or without a permit."
Those groups "actions" apparently include protests against whites. As part of the massive march on Saturday, the NBPP has also called on blacks to boycotts white businesses for the entire weekend:
THE DAY OF ACTION AND UNITY ORGANIZERS ARE ALSO CALLING FOR A BUY BLACK ONLY CAMPAIGN AND A BOYCOTT OF ALL NON-BLACK BUSINESSES FOR THE WEEKEND OF APRIL 23RD.
Included on the website is a confusing video trumpeting the gathering:
The Anti-Defamation League has spoken out against the event:
“The New Black Panther Party (NBPP), the largest organized anti-Semitic and racist Black militant group in America, has used troubling language to describe several of the events. The group has stated that opposing Jews and 'Zionism' is one of the 'pressing issues' they wish to address, among myriad other social and political issues.”
That doesn't seem to matter to the NBPP.
"We will rattle the enemy and those who are asleep to show and prove the world we are wide-awake!" the site explains.
