I’m still a political revolutionary. The fire never went out of me, but perceptions and realizations change.
I always tried to raise money for the Black Panthers through business schemes.
Fox News never calls up Bobby Seale to articulate a stance in opposition to right-wing conservatives. To me, giving the New Black Panthers a platform on Fox is a subtle tactic to scare people.
I’d have no trouble being the barbecue kingpin of America. I’d just add it to all the other things I am: jazz musician, carpenter, architect, engineer and revolutionary.
The FBI’s Counter-Intelligence Program would work hand-in-hand with police departments, literally planning attacks on Black Panther Party offices throughout the United States of America. They did this over a period of time.
Money is the medium of exchange, and it’s how you make things happen. To say you hate it is some farfetched, idealistic crap.
The Black Panther party of Self-Defense is a revolutionary party.
I am not a hoodlum. I’m a community organizer.
Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That’s what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
The Black Panther Party was not a gang. They grew out of a young black intelligentsia on college campuses.
