  • A racist organization.

    Answer by QuinnMae at 9:33 PM on Sep. 25, 2010

  • "American black revolutionary party founded in 1966 in Oakland, Calif., by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. The party's original purpose was to patrol black ghettoes to protect residents from acts of police brutality. The Panthers eventually developed into a Marxist revolutionary group that called for the arming of all blacks, the exemption of blacks from the draft and from all sanctions of so-called white America, the release of all blacks from jail, and the payment of compensation to blacks for centuries of exploitation by white Americans."

  • They are the same as the KKK, but they are black. A racist organization!!!
    They both want to kill each other. And should.

  • It isn't quite as bad as the KKK, gammie. The Black Panthers were organized to protect themselves and other black people from unauthorized police brutality. The FBI framed many of them and raided them and killed innocent blacks. THAT is criminal.
    The KKK is out to harm black people for no reason other than their skin color. BIG difference.

  • Leave it to gertie to defend racists.

  • Gertie,

    I know we both lived through the 60's & 70's, but sometimes I wonder if you was at Woodstock into all the drugs. You, at times, sure don't seem to remember much that happened back then.

  • gertie: you really need to research the KKK. They started as the terrorist arm of the democrats. They have been against the Italians, the Irish, the Jews, and in resent history, the blacks. I don't condone any actions of either group, but I can't stand the distortion of history.

  • Depends.

    Are you asking about the original Black Panther party of the 60's-70's,,,,,,,,,, Or are you asking about this "New" Black Panther party that has been popping up in the past couple of years.?????
