The main risk for every race is usually someone from their own race. That's not a new revelation.

No, it's not. However, the post I responded to appeared to me to be suggesting otherwise. That has been clarified.

Yet we are still out gunned by the right. They have a culture that is militarized and ready. They have a view point that does not make me feel comfortable for me and my family.

They're the black Westboro Baptist Church.

Unfortunately the media by giving them a forum and by paying attention to their crap is totally playing into their agenda. The best thing the media could do would be to ignore them. Just like WBC.

I've said it before and i'll say it again... the definition of "militant black" is a black person that shows any displeasure at anything no matter how bad it is. If you go into a restaurant and aren't happy with your service or food, then you're a militant black. If someone runs into you with their car and you wince in pain, you're a militant black. If you're fired unjustifiably and you complain about it, you're a militant black.

Hell, if you don't smile 24/7 365 and constantly reassure some of these people that you're not angry, you're a militant black hellbent on revenge for slavery.

I pay the Black Panther thing no mind. If they scare people, fine with me.
I would guess that your skin needs to be darker than mine for all the things you are noising about. I am not black so few people think of me as a militant black man.

Maybe he and Barry made friends, since Shabazz is listed on the White House visitor logs.

New Black Panthers: Noisy but small
Is this the King Samir Shabazz you are talking about? It seems to me that he may have some followers at least as stupid as he seems to be. He says he has a Masters Degree but I have heard that he is a high school drop out. He has declared his name to be what we see here so maybe he declared himself a Masters' achiever.

I agree. I think it's bull that unless we're smiling and doing a j1g-dance, folks get nervous. Never understood why we're seen as some weird irrational violent animals when we get mad. The way some people act when a black person gets mad is really quite comical to watch. They act as if the man/woman is about to kill everyone up in the place.

Believe it or not it is not that uncommon of a name.

1 thing that I don't understand is why so many Black people even support the NBP since more and more Blacks; at least the women, are stepping up and taking care of business. The NBP; if they mixed up with neo Nazis or the KKK, that's 1 thing cause most of us white people DON'T like them either. But; threatening "regular" white people WILL make many of us more racist against ALL Blacks, especially dark skin ones.
