One of the things i have always read and researched about is The Black Panther Party...The purpose of this forum post is post anything you can find about The Black Panther Party be it good or bad...I will always have respect for the good that they did for the Black Communities...Huey Newton and Bobby Seale started a good thing only to see The FBI and the Raciest Police destroy it all.

Now i won't sit here and say there were no bad seeds in The Black Panther Party, because we all know what became of Huey Newton toward the end of his life, and we all have heard about the drug use that went on.

So everybody let's find as much as we can on the now Legendary Black Panther Party...Have fun with it and remember knowledge is power.

ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE

One of the things that has been impressed upon my mind as I have done my own personal study of the "Panthers" are the ages of the young men and women who were "down for the cause" as they faced daily threats and possible execution at the hands of a rival nation. As I look around today, I feel a certain emptiness. A lacking of courage and conviction by most (not all) young people I meet.

I know that it is not simply a matter of their personal failings, but the failings of my generation to pass on and demand back the respect for self and for our people that was transmitted to us by those who sacrificed so much before us. I'm not sure where we failed, but I am sure we didn't (I didn't) do all that could have been done.

I hope more young people will visit here and learn what a real treasure they can be in lifting their people's conscience to a higher level. There is nothing like the energy of youth when focused for positive change..."ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE" (young people!)
