Black Panther Party - 50th Anniversary -
October 20 - 23, 2016 -
Oakland Museum of California and Laney College.
The Black Panther Party is celebrating their 50th Anniversary - at the Oakland Museum of California and Laney College - I was there yesterday - attending forums and meeting - many people from all walks of life - and from all over the world.
The Black Panthers took care of our Seniors -
respecting them - and giving them an opportunity -
to play a key role in the healing of the Black Community.
Our children are suffering today -
the Black Panther Party - on this 50th Anniversary -
we remember the key services provided to the children -
from breakfast to health care - to all care - and
most importantly to remember love and respect.
The Black Panther Party symbol
of the Panther was everywhere -
here is one that says it all.
Much before the Black Panther Party and its great work all over the Nation - the Mau Mau played an important role - is sending a message to those that treated mostly people of color with disdain.
The Black Panther Party suffered from " snitches " that embraced mundane values - than those principles that cannot be bought - setting an example - to all other organizations - that it matters - when one who is a leader - does not compromise - on principles.
Today we see Black politicians - and others sell out - and others who intent - want to play with some of us - who have been vetted and tested - and will NOT sell out - come what may.
Here is a Community Survival Conference
circa 1972 - not much has changed today -
it fact it worse - Blacks are dwindling -
"gentrification " is wiping entire Black communities -
in San Francisco, in Oakland, in Vallejo - everywhere.
We thank the Black Panther Party and Movement -
let us " STOP" dropping the ball -
take our projects, plans, to a sound conclusion.
We can do it and we must -
for too long - have too many suffered -
this land is the land of the indigenous -
the " indigenous " are people of color -
there can be no justice - unless all " injustice "
is erased - and all human beings given equal - justice.
