It is kinda like the airplane scene where the blacks and whites all take pause at the middle eastern man. All this gun toating is fine and dandy until the muslim brotherhood does it and everyone finds out about it then it will be a problem. In that sense we have crossed some divides by way of what many see as a common enemy. Until that battle blacks will always stick up for blacks and so on and so on.

Anyway towards the march i support there right to brandish weapons


Brandishing a gun is is a felony in most states. And you support that? OK.



do i agree with their cause, no not at all.


What cause do you disagree with? Reminding people that we ALL have second amendment rights? And you don't support that? OK.

I was being sarcastic,and perhaps i shouldn't have been, I absolutely support their second amendment rights! However i do not support the black panthers they are an openly racist group and should always be looked at with a critical eye. If you don't believe this than there isn't a fruitful dialogue to be had here. Wouldn't you agree?

I have a hard time believing you were being sarcastic. How does sarcasm fit in when saying they're "brandishing" their weapons and you don't support their cause? I don't get it.


However i do not support the black panthers they are an openly racist group and should always be looked at with a critical eye.


1. This isn't just the Black Panthers. They were represented in the march. (This is not the New Black Panthers)
2. I think you need to read up on who the Black Panthers are and what they're mission is.



Although the Party emerged from black nationalist movements, ultimately, the Panthers condemned black nationalism as "black racism" and became more ideologically focused on socialist revolution without racial exclusivity.[7] They instituted a variety of community social programs designed to alleviate poverty, improve health among inner city black communities, and soften the Party's public image.[8] The Black Panther Party's most widely known programs were its armed citizens' patrols to evaluate behavior of police officers and its Free Breakfast for Children program. However, the group's political goals were often overshadowed by the criminality of members and their confrontational, militant, and violent tactics against police.


Just as there are a few bad apples in EVERY group, people have used the Black Panther name to commit crimes and use violence.

I think some people see a bunch of black people together and they automatically think there is going to be violence and they get scared. That is systemic racism. If this were a white march, there would be NO gun advocates saying the stuff you've said.

Sorry, but that's how it looks from here.

I'm glad you made the distinction.

There is a HUGE difference between the racist group known as the NEW Black Panther Party and the Black Panthers.

The Black Panthers, who are still around today, were not racist. They were tired of racist cops and the KKK lynching and murdering their family and friends. So they took up arms to ensure their rights were protected.

I can honestly say I support the Klan's right to bear arms but not their message.

Not sure if that is the point the poster you are replying to is trying to make, I am not getting a clear message from their replies.

Its sarcastic because black panthers are known for brandishing weapons. Remember the polling booth B/P militia's. Here we go again trying to make white people look scared. Its JUST TOO MUCH MELANIN as one poster said. This is racism,characterizing my view points and experiences into some neat, little, white ignorant, scared man, cookie cutter idea. (If this was KKK marching brandishing weapons, honestly that's what it is when a hate group marches its a brandish a flaunt of a sort. My apologies that you are unwilling to accept this.) Then i would certainly be offended. I do not like racism of any kind period end of story. Its sad when you take and ideology and only characterize it by a few, you say look its only a few bad apples. You know what the whole ideology is BS and offensive i don't care how many individuals act out on it. The principles i disagree with.

The group in the Original Post, as has been pointed out, is the Black Panther Party. The vote booth-blocking criminals are the New Black Panther Party. Huge difference.

you stated that from your view point you've seen large amounts of discrimination from whites towards African Americans


That is not AT ALL what I said.

I SAID: I've seen too much racial profiling towards my black friends

In the context of my comments, I was referring to the police. But hey, I appreciate your bigoted point of view towards blacks...lets me know who to avoid.

White on black crime is what you see(racial profiling/discrimination right their synonymous). My points of view are far from bigoted, i do not support racism. however i am not ignorant enough to say that African Americans cant be racist, that the vast majority of the lower class in Dallas is racist and that its pointed towards whites.

Regardless under the name it is no stretch to call this party openly racist and therefore should be view critically just as the KKK why is this so hard for you to accept. Why are my points being picked and swayed. I am not racist i am against all forms. I apologize if i have not made that clear in my post.

There haters on each side. When either side takes a stance then the belief that the haters do not exist comes into play. There are places that any of you can go if you are in the u.s. and get killed simply for being born the way you are. When you take up for one side then you are also defending those fringe groups that are there in the name of whatever.

I do not see where the major discount lies.

One group, the Black Panther Party, fights for civil rights and is not racist.

The other, the New Black Panther Party, is racist and only interested in their own agenda, other's rights be damned.

If you continue to not recognize this you will be consistently called out on this very relevant point.

source hmmmm


Both of your links are to the NEW Black Panthers. That's not who we're talking about here. Please carefully read the posts of AugustusMasonicus and projectvxn if you don't believe me.

Read your first source if you don't believe me:



New Black Panther Party

Not to be confused with the Black Panther Party.

Despite its name, NBPP is not an official successor of the Black Panther Party.[2]

It would be more belivable if they just called themselves the panthers. I think that denoting a race or color in your name is racist from the start.

If people fight for the rights of other's they can call themselves whatever they want.

And just for edification purposes there were/are plenty of white people in this group.
