There are several stories that appear as blurbs on the news that never get the coverage they deserve – especially when the subject is black bigotry. Most of what is covered in the area of race is white on black bigotry, whether there is any truth to it or not. Anytime the media reports on a story like this, the usual race pimps get involved in order to decry the sins the white community visits upon helpless black victims.
One story that merits a closer inspection is that of King Samir Shabazz and his group, the New Black Panther Party. On May 15, 2009, members of the NBPP had charges of voter intimidation against them dropped by the Department of Justice. According Christian Adams, a DOJ attorney that resigned over the incident, the Obama Administration has directed the DOJ not to pursue cases against blacks that involve voting rights violations. And when Adams and another DOJ attorney were subpoenaed by U.S. Commission on Civil Rights to testify about the dismissal of the case, their superiors violated federal law by ordering them not to testify.
The evidence in the case was irrefutable. One of the voters who was targeted made a video of Shabazz and other members of the NBPP outside the polls on November 4, 2008.

Upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that the NBPP has a larger agenda. They believe that the only way to attain true freedom is to kill whites, and they preach this to their followers.
Here are statements taken from members of the NBPP when the group was featured in a National Geographic documentary.
“My job is to educate black people, whether they want to be educated or not. I don’t give a damn what they may think about white people, I hate white people. All of them.”
“There is too much serious business going on in your black community to be sliding through south street with white, dirty cracker whores on your arms. What’s a matter with you black man, you got a doomsday with a white woman on your arm.”
“We keep begging white people for freedom. No wonder we’re not free. Your enemy can not make you free fool. You want freedom you’re going to have to kill some crackers. You’re going to have to kill some of their babies.”
“I can’t wait for the day that they’re all dead. I won’t be completely happy until I see our people free and Whitey dead.”
“We kick white folks asses. We take it right to the cracker.”
“We’re going to keep putting our foot up the white man’s ass until they understand completely. We want freedom, justice and mutha[expletive] equality. Period. If you ain’t gonna give it to us, mutha[expletive], we’re gonna take it, in the name of freedom.”
Perhaps the most frightening thing about this is that Malik Zulu Shabazz, National Chairman of the New Black Panther Party, has visited the White House.
The main stream media has not touched on these incidents, unless it is in a passing afternoon blurb. What the media has done, however, is attempted to create news through spin.
Case in point: First Lady, Michelle Obama, gave a speech to the NAACP on childhood obesity on Monday, July 12. Following her speech, ABC news prominently displayed the headline, “Michelle Obama Rouses NAACP Before Vote Condemning ‘Racist’ Elements of Tea Party.”
The problem is, the First Lady never mentioned the TEA Party in her speech at all. Yet, because the NAACP was scheduled to issue a statement the following day regarding “racist elements” of the TEA Party, ABC News chose to spin the story in a way that tied the Obama’s to the anti-TEA Party rhetoric. (For the record, the NAACP has a direct tie to the Black Panthers.)
One has to wonder what ABC’s motive was in spinning in that manner. Are they intentionally trying to fan the flames of already strained race relations?
It appears that it is having an impact close to home. Specific members of the TEA Party have now been targeted by a man, Dennis Latham, who claims to be involved in the New Black Panther Party (read the comments section).
The NBPP website has a press release out that mentions the voter intimidation case and the TEA Party.
Now these political hypocrites, who care nothing about Black people, are jumping all over a honest and decent Black organization – the New Black Panther Party – and all we are doing is helping clean Black people up and raise our community after the mess the white man made out of us and our lives. Every time a strong and decent Black organization arises in America, racists – and in this case, Republican, right wing, confederate, Tea Party racists – try to crush that Black organization…
These Tea Party Republicans are using any frivolous matter to undermine Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama. For the record, the New Black Panther Party has never had any political connections to the Obama Administration.
Members of the TEA Party should be worried that this group has members in the River Region…very worried.

Editors Note: Buzz had a long conversation with Mr. Dennis Lathem this morning, who denies any involvement with the New Black Panther Party. We encourage you to Google search Mr Lathem and read his various blogs and postings to get a better understanding as to his views and opinions.
