Cynthia McKinney Speaks to Black Power Convention

While the more well-known Libertarian Party National Convention is occurring this weekend in St. Louis, Missouri, a Black Power Convention is occurring in Atlanta, Georgia. The convention is hosted by the New Black Panther Party and features a number of its most prominent members, including Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz, and regional director Allah Divine. Other third party connections include Chairman Omali Yeshitela of the African Peoples Socialist Party, Bob Brown of the All African People’s Revolutionary Party, and Former Congresswoman and Green Party Presidential nominee Cynthia McKinney.

    Let me just say that this only re-affirms my belief that McKinney is a racist. The “New” Black Panther Party is a hate group, plain and simple. She should not appear at any event hosted by them, as they stand in direct violation of the Green’s key values. It would be the equivalent of white “peace” activist attending an event hosted by the Klan. Hypocrisy at it’s finest.

    Racism is a disease, and unfortunately, it has yet to be cured.

    Trent pardon me for commenting on this but your first sentence reads as if both the LP convention and the BP convention are being held in Atlanta.

    I would be willing to bet before the festivities come to an end, somebody is gonna pull a gun and shoot a fellow brother (AKA Keeping it real)

    I mean we all know the only time black folks stick together is either in prison or in body bags

    Thanks for that remark, Jim Brantley. You are the perfect recruiting tool for the NBPP. Your ignorant, racist taunts are what push people towards these extremist groups. I bet you’re a teabagger/KKK village idiot, right?

    Michael,

    You’re right! Correcting.

    Timothy,

    Jim’s statements were sick. However, blindly associating the tea party (and calling them teabaggers) with the KKK is also a pretty gross distortion. NBPP is a vehemently racist organization–they advocate “killing the white devil”, amongst other things. I hope you’ll disavow them as strongly as you’ve disavowed Mr. Brantley.

    Racism right in your face. Any open pro-violent racism is inhumane but how is it it hat ts ok for blacks to practice this most offensive activate in the open but not other races. If Caucasians had a White Power Conference the world would attack them at every level. Are we as a society afraid of these people to let them get away with this or is some in power helping promote this. Why are we tolerating this and these people advocating this venom.

    IF THE WHITE MAN WAS NOT THE REAL RACIST, (SLAVERY, LYNCHINGS, SEGREGATION, PACKING BLACK PEOPLE IN PRISON UNFAIRLY. KEEPING THE VOTE FROM VOTING, KEEPING BLACKS FROM ECONOMIC POWER, UNFAIR HOUSING, TAKING OTHER PEOPLES LAND, WORLD WARS ECT. THEIR WOULD BE NO NEED FOR THE NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY. YOU GET IT. BLACK POWER ALL OVER THE WORLD. I AM AN AMERICAN TOO.

    SOULADDICT will you please stop blaming the “WHITE MAN” for all your bigotry?

    Please stop accusing “WHITE MAN” for the prision population when 17% of the population commits roughly 60% of all the crime?

    And start learning about how “WHITE MAN” was also enslaved all over the mid-east. Do you think that “slavery” is unique to Black people?

    And please will you correctly state that Jewish merchants financed the slave trade from Africa. That reminds me, many Africans were slave traders themselves.

    This is not a “Black Power” conference, it is just another opportunity to air grievances about “Whites”…

    Also, you were never enslaved. So please don’t dishonor the memories of those who were by claiming victimhood.

    The Green Part needs to respond to this immediately. I mean, I don’t really like that the website was made with IWW labor but I can overlook that. I can’t overlook this.

    Why now? McKinney has been speaking to, and associating with, groups like this ever since her run for President started.

    American Renaissance tried to hold their annual or bi-annual conference a few months ago, and it finally had to be canceled after changing locations at least three times due to hotels and their staff receiving constant death threats and harassment from anti-white leftist hate groups. It was secretly held on a smaller scale basis at a last-minute clandestine location, much diminished, because of the sheer determination and terrorist tactics by those so aggressive and intent on intimidating anyone willing to attend or give meeting space to AmRen conferees.

    NewYorkRob you may have a point,but lets not excuse the fact that there are more whites in the entire world with power then any other race. I have done my research and know for a fact that there are more Blacks in prison then any other race. Many have been wrongly accused of crimes they did not commit or given longer sentences for petty crimes then whites. I am not living in the past,but until you walk in another mans shoes you will never know what has experienced.
