This is not to start drama, so don't bother reading THIS far, and then comment something like that. In a previous post, people didn't even know what the black panther party was.

I agree with pp. It's not okay. Black Panthers are thugs and would terrorize the community that he represents. It would be like a union. They are bullies and don't promote free thought. They keep racism alive because it's what gives them identity, instead of actually doing and succeeding at something.

I am beyond sickened. He openly defended a man convicted of killing a BLACK sheriff in GA. He would prefer the criminal be served justice over the family of the man who was murdered? How dare he say that we shove the Holocaust down his throat?! It was a travesty in our history and we are not allowed to speak of being brutalized and only the descendants of slaves have the right to share their horror?! I don't hear half as much about the Holocaust. Slavery was horrible and it was something that should never have been brought to be but the Holocaust was horrific as well. Concentration camps, being gassed in groups, separated from family and having experimental anesthesia free operations performed to test the tolerance of the human body and mind...That doesn't warrant any frustration?!
