that doesn't make sense, she discredits herself by promoting racial and group agendas (regardless of who did or did not set up those black panther types)

i think racism is weak and only hurts us all by dividing us but i can understand where she is coming from. she feels war is being waged on her community. from her point of view, her community must unite or die.

besides, 95% of her message had more to do with economics than race.



leaving aside your estimates of percentage- she is the racist here, you do know that right


it's amazing how you got that just from her saying "black panthers" considering nothing else remotely race related was even brought up. your logic is highly flawed

not my logic, she brought them up!

The ironic thing is that group/race thinkers like this, are exactly the types of people that those in charge love- they are easy to divide and conquer

please explain to me how simply saying "black panthers" is racist considering their history with cops and what the meeting was about in the first place. gotta love people who focus on the thing that ISN"T even the issue at hand. and try reading the other pages before you comment next time. this has already been settled and I don't really feel like going over it for a 4th time

how is referencing a group based on race racist?

She had no reason to bring up this race based group other than to promote a race based/group agenda- like I said putty in the hands of the elite

You should take the earlier advice and read through this thread, especially the last page..


The Black Panthers were not a racist group, they worked side by side with white people, and white revolutionary groups such as the White Panthers.

It is you who is projecting your racism.

The New Black Panthers though is a different organization completely, and she was not talking about them.

yeah lets change history all of a sudden the group was founded on racism and not protecting black people from racist cops imported to oakland from the south. you obviously don't have a clue as to what you are talking about. she had every reason to mention them in the context that she did. I already broke it down for someone else it's back on page 2 or 3 go read it and quit being a troll

and one last time for the people who feel themselves too busy to read the initial pages. there is NO comparison that can be made between a white power organization such as the kkk and the original black panthers. the kkk indiscriminately killed non whites. the black panthers killed racist southern cops who were denying people of basic human rights. they only had problems with people not following the initial ideology of the group once Huey Newton was arrested and they got more new members than they could effectively keep in line. that has nothing to do with the core principals the group was founded on

working hand in hand with other race based groups does nothing, erm, to dilute the racist aspect of this organisation



It is you who is projecting your racism.



really it is not- I did not bring up a race based/group based grouping- this lady did, and it discredits her stance and makes her nothing more than a potential patsy



The New Black Panthers though is a different organization completely, and she was not talking about them.



both racist, but different, yes

Yes, it was founded on racism by racists, regardless of what reasons they gave for starting it- I am sure these cops targeted whites and latinos (and did not target all blacks), yet this group was started PURELY by blacks for blacks- it treated all blacks as one group and ignored, for example, white victims- racist group you see



you obviously don't have a clue as to what you are talking about. she had every reason to mention them in the context that she did. I already broke it down for someone else it's back on page 2 or 3 go read it and quit being a troll



give over and stop being so prissy because she made a racist ass out of herself

Jeezuz you are getting more convoluted

* I am not defending the KKK
* the definition of being a racist group does not rest on whether you can be compared to the KKK!

The black panthers were a race based/group based outfit- they were only concerned with blacks and were therefore racist

Great all you need to do know is understand it.

So what is the racists aspect of that group? (Not this group because they don't exist anymore)


really it is not- I did not bring up a race based/group based grouping- this lady did, and it discredits her stance and makes her nothing more than a potential patsy


Really it is. Nobody bought up a race based group, except you and some other posters who want to focus on race and not the message.


both racist, but different, yes


So to you just because blacks organize to better their community and fight racism, that makes them racist?

Do you think the White Panthers were racist?

It's pretty obvious it's you who has the racial problem, and want the BP to be racist in order to justify your own hate. Even if they were racist they had some justification for it, unlike whites.











How quickly people forget their own history.

Are you serious- let us start with the name "BLACK", not white, asian, latino etc, but BLACK.

From this flowed their agendas which primarily focussed on the notion of "black" as a group and the "WHITE" as the other- it is a group think organisation which promotes identity and community based on RACE!



Really it is. Nobody bought up a race based group, except you and some other posters who want to focus on race and not the message.


This lady did, remember, the BLACK PANTHERS (as in black people as a group who reference the "black community", "black people", "black men" etc all about the black)




So to you just because blacks organize to better their community and fight racism, that makes them racist?


If they set up groups based on race this makes them racist, for frig sake yes yes yes, how stupid can people be- the focus on "BLACK" as a group, this is racist, it dehumanises and focuses on the "other"



Do you think the White Panthers were racist?



yes



It's pretty obvious it's you who has the racial problem, and want the BP to be racist in order to justify your own hate.



give over, me pointing out racism does not make me racist, I shine a light on racist groups, racists get outraged, boo hoo




Even if they were racist they had some justification for it, unlike whites.


what ridiculous reasoning- so if a white man was mugged by a black he has an excuse to be racist?

Either racism is bad or it isn't, don't give excuses for some racists and not others, what a pathetic weasely outlook]



How quickly people forget their own history.


love the unintentional irony

he was full of contradictions, like those who excuse the black panthers, they, on the one hand, promote racial and group identity, then talk about doing the opposite- still doesn't negate their inherent group think approach

Some white leftists lap that stuff up, they are worse than the panthers, they bend over backwards and lie down for them

Yeah I figured that was what it was lol. There is nothing wrong with groups of people creating their own organization. A perfect example is the White Panthers who worked with the Black Panthers, the part you read but didn't understand.

Focusing on race is not racism, unless it is denying a race of a right everyone else has. Why would a white person want to join an organization that focuses on issues created by white people? The BP did not deny anything to whites, they worked side by side with whites, the White Panthers among others. If you read what you claimed to have read you would know the White Panthers used that name because it was suggested by the Black Panthers.




This lady did, remember, the BLACK PANTHERS (as in black people as a group who reference the "black community", "black people", "black men" etc all about the black)


No, because once again the BP were not a racist group, only in your head because you can't seem to understand what racism actually is. The BP did not deny anything to any other race. You are not being denied any rights by what they did. Now if they opened a store and put up a sign that said 'blacks only' you might have a point.


If they set up groups based on race this makes them racist, for frig sake yes yes yes, how stupid can people be- the focus on "BLACK" as a group, this is racist, it dehumanises and focuses on the "other"


No it doesn't. Racism is when you deny someone because of their race. The BP was set up to help black people from the racism of whites, and to better their communities. It's whites who caused the segregation not blacks. It's whites who said to blacks, you're not one of us you are lower class and can not mix with us. So what do you expect them to do?


yes


OK where is your evidence the White Panthers were racist?


Are Filipino organization racist also? Are Engineering organizations biased against none-engineers?



give over, me pointing out racism does not make me racist, I shine a light on racist groups, racists get outraged, boo hoo


You prove by your opinions that you are racist, there is no other reason for what you're saying.



what ridiculous reasoning- so if a white man was mugged by a black he has an excuse to be racist?


LOL blacks were not mugged by white men, they were segregated, in other words as I said already, white people were saying to black people you're not one of us, you have to be separated from us. But now you want to act like it's the blacks fault that there is racism? Now that is ridiculous reasoning.


Either racism is bad or it isn't, don't give excuses for some racists and not others, what a pathetic weasely outlook]


Again I didn't say they were racist, only that they have more justification for it because of the acts of whites, you can't keep ignoring what was happening in the 60's.

I have a feeling you're pretty young, and don't have a good grasp of your countries history.


he was full of contradictions, like those who excuse the black panthers, they, on the one hand, promote racial and group identity, then talk about doing the opposite- still doesn't negate their inherent group think approach

Some white leftists lap that stuff up, they are worse than the panthers, they bend over backwards and lie down for them


How can you make that claim, where is your evidence? Again your bias is showing because you have no solid ground to make that claim on. They were demonized as racist by the press but it's pretty obvious why.
