Somethings people forget.
Then there are others. That don't care to learn or unattended in first place.
The Black Panther Party was founded in Oakland, California by Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton in October 1966. Black Panther Party membership reached a peak of 10,000 by early 1969, acquiring 90% support from Black people in major cities in America. The organization is well known for advocating self-defense against police brutality. The Panthers also organized dozens of community programs such as Free Breakfast For Children program, health clinics and several Survival Programs for the People.


The Black Panther Party advocated self-defense of the black community against the racist murder and brutality of the Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond and San Francisco Police through armed patrols of police activities. The purpose of the armed patrols was to capture the imagination of the people for broader community electoral purposes as Huey and I observe the police making arrest of black people. The Black Panther Party also fought to establish greater peoples' empowerment via community control politics, through mass organizing of more than twenty different community based survival programs.

Before Huey went to jail in 1967, there were only about seventy-five Black Panther party members and two chapters, Los Angeles and Oakland, California. When Huey came out in 1971, there were over forty-five chapters and five thousand dedicated and politically educated Black Panther party members. The statement has been made that the Black Panther Party experienced its most dramatic growth when Huey was in jail. What is often missed in this statement is Huey's importance as a revolutionary political prisoner, a symbol for Black America and oppressed people around the world. Whatever difficulties may have come Huey's way in later years, I think he will probably be best remembered as I captured him in Seize The Time.

The Black Panther Party's effectiveness as an organizing vehicle lead it to grow quickly starting when I lead an armed delegation of Party members to the California state capitol building on May 2nd 1967 to read Executive Mandate No. 1: protesting the state legislatures passing of the Mulford Act, a new law that was designed to keep the Party from legally patrolling the police in the streets of Oakland CA.

The Black Panther Party, was an "All Power To All The People!” organization, whether you're black, white, blue, green, yellow, or polka dot. We believed in black unity, but only as a catalyst to help humanize the world. The Black Panther Party worked for self-determination and social justice for all people.

The Black Panther Party was one of the first organizations in U.S. history to militantly struggle for ethnic minority and working class emancipation - a party whose political electoral agenda was the revolutionary establishment of real economic, social, and political equality across gender and color lines, aligning itself with other people of color organizations including Cesar Chavez's Farm Workers Movement, AIM (American Indian Movement), The Asian Red Guard [I Wor kuen] {Righteous Harmonious Fist}, The Young Lords, The Peace & Freedom Party, the SDS and the Young Patriots.

On August 22, 1989, my friend and old comrade Huey was shot dead. Huey had not fallen victim to the many police guns and bullets nor the prison death houses we both had faced. Huey, had been killed by a young drug dealer. I am troubled by the question that if Huey P. Newton, who struggled against all odds in the sixties and seventies, could get caught up in the vicious cycle of Black community self-destruction, then when & were will this destruction end?

All Power To All The People!

Hollywood tries to get people to not watch the State of The Union address... and all anyone can talk about is the State of The Union address.

Very little negative news about Trump's speech. I watched it entirely. I always do. I don't like the cherry picking that happens in the news, so I always make sure I watch it. Doesn't matter who the President has been, it helps me understand the person and what to expect the upcoming year.

My favorite negative news was, "It's all about what the President didn't say." The fuck does that mean? Who cares what he didn't say, he didn't say it. Speculating on what the President didn't say, based on other things not discussed in the address, is meaningless overall -- because it doesn't have anything to do with the speech!

On the other, was an attempt to fact check what he'd said. Nothing in the fact checking had really anything to do with the speech. It referred to past events which was really hard for them to say wasn't something right. So I defer to what I heard.

I heard things said that I'd never heard any President say. I saw a President that was celebrating and caring for average citizens. I heard him differentiate between illegal immigration versus legal immigration -- which are two different things: One is illegal and the other is legal. As a State of The Union address, it's not just about the past, but the upcoming year's goals. So I think it'll be an interesting upcoming year.

What's more interesting: His speech made all those who didn't attend, the ones who boycotted, look like total fucking asshats. The five democrats that were going to offer rebuttals? What are they going to refute? Are they going to refute that Trump is creating a path for citizenship for all DACA dreamers? Seriously?

He publicly said what he was going to do. He then put all the weight of those decisions and goals on the shoulders of Congress to do their jobs to make it happen -- both parties.

I bet every one of them can't even make it the first week before giving up.

Worth watching. Whole Foods cofounder John Mackey talks about the historical reason many intellectuals hate capitalism and why capitalism turns into cronyism.
