I initially though the New Black Panthers were an evolutionary group stemming from the Black Panthers. It seems not.

http://www.blackpanther.org/newsalert.htm

As guardian of the true history of the Black Panther Party, the Foundation, which includes former leading members of the Party, denounces this group's exploitation of the Party's name and history. Failing to find its own legitimacy in the black community, this band would graft the Party's name upon itself, which we condemn.

Those who take the time to research things would know this already. The NBPP has been denounced by the original party since its founding. Bobby Seale (the co-founder of the original party along with Huey Newton) even called the NBPP "racist and xenophobic". They're also classified as a hate group by the SPLC.

As long as their name remains so close to the New Black Panthers, people will associate the two.

Maybe the BP's should sue the new BP's for false representation.

http://smilies.blazemint.com/s/contrib/sally/lol.gif (broken link) Think about that sentence for a little bit. It's amazing when you consider what it implies.

Wow! You mean the three numb nuts Fox News has been running with 24/7 aren't main stream and no one likes them or cares about them? Color me shocked. I mean who would have thought Fox news would do race baiting?

Seems to me the NEW Black Panthers lack some creativity thats for sure. Why not, the Kill Whities Org. Or black KKK?
Yeah, not very creative either, but they sure couldve come up with something better and more fitting and not go off an existing group that wants nothing to do with them.

I do read alot and try to keep current on things.
Until I read another article that pointed to the link I have in the OP I didn't know they were not associated with each other.

Most MSM articles I've read about them do not clarify that they are not associated. Their name NBPP alone implies association. The BPP has not done enough to get the word out IMHO about this.

They can associate the two. Both are political organizations under the black power - freedom politics umbrella. It all Black Panther Party. Even the Democrats have changed their stripes over the years.
