City Honors Black Panthers For Infusing Pride Into Community

Winston Salem will honor the revolutionary socialist Black Panther Party for its work feeding poor children and infusing a spirit of black pride into the community. The leaders of the organization in the 1960’s and 1970’s espoused socialist and Marxist doctrines.

The Black Panthers released this film OFF THE PIG created by the SAN FRANCISCO branch.

The anti-police film was used as a recruiting tool.

Now the Black Panthers are being honored with a historic marker.

Winston Salem Journal
reported:

Born out of the tumult of the 1960s, the Black Panther Party is usually portrayed as a militant organization with radical political views.

But there’s another side to the story of the Black Panthers, one that involved feeding breakfast to poor children, operating an ambulance service for people in neglected areas, screening people for sickle-cell anemia and infusing a spirit of black pride within their communities.

That version of the Black Panther story will be recognized today when city officials unveil a historic marker for the Winston-Salem chapter of the Black Panther Party at the northeast corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Fifth Street, near the group’s former headquarters.

The Winston-Salem chapter, organized in 1969, was the first to be formed in the Southeast.

Nelson Malloy, an early member of the party who later became member of the Winston-Salem City Council, said he never imaged the Panthers would be recognized in such an official capacity.

“But we are, in fact, part of the city’s history,” he said.

Mark Maxwell is the chairman of the city’s 12-member Historic Resources Commission that selects historic markers.

Most members of the commission were familiar with the violent past of the national Panther Party, Maxwell said.

    “But there’s another side to the story of the Black Panthers, one that involved feeding breakfast to poor children, operating an ambulance service for people in neglected areas, screening people for sickle-cell anemia and infusing a spirit of black pride within their communities.”

    Can’t the KKK claim all of that and more?

    I’m pretty sure I’ve read where the Palestine terrorist groups claim to do the same thing.

    Finally, the TRUTH of how the lunatic-left’s favorite form of discrimination, AFFIRAMTIVE ACTION SPECIAL TREATMENT / RACIST RACIAL QUOTAS, have hurst the lives of those given this privilege, as well and the schools and society that must cope with its harmful results…

    “Mismatch: How Affirmative Action Hurts Students It’s Intended to Help, and Why Universities Won’t Admit It,” October 2012, by Richard Sander and Stuart Taylor Jr.

    The authors cut through the lies and BS that the lunatic-left has been saying for decades and use documented facts and case studies to show the horrific consequences of this ill-conceived, immoral form of discrimination. The common result of affirmative action discrimination is a “mismatch” between the privileged situation that it grants to minorities and their ability to fulfill the normal expectations of that situation. Although the authors do not use him as an example, OBOZO is certainly the poster-boy for the ill effects that bad consequences that affirmative action special treatment can have. Had OBOZO not had the privileges afforded by this discrimination against other, more academically qualified people, he might well had gone into a career that was a better match to his actual skills and abilities (like golf caddy, sanitation worker, Planned Parenthood abortion assistant, etc.) and would have been successful, instead of being a compete and total failure as THE WORST PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY, which has resulted in pain and suffering to millions of Americans an even the deaths of at least five Americans.

    a long dead local mafia bigwig was known for his community work. food baskets, help with bills, parties for the children, etc….the seedy side of who he was and what he was capable of doing was an acceptable disregard of ethics.

    Amazing Coincidences or Outright Conspiracy

    [In the four years I have been gathering information about — and
    evidence against — Barack Hussein Obama, I have encountered
    hundreds of coincidences that strike me as amazing. None of those
    coincidences, by themselves, may mean much. But taken as a whole
    it is almost impossible to believe they were all the result of chance.
    — Don Fredrick, author of The Obama Timeline
    ]

    The Obama Timeline

    [EoV Note: If you read only one thing before the November 6 general
    election, make it this mosaic by Don Fredrick (or still better, his book)
    entitled, The Obama Timeline. We rarely say this, but it is an absolute
    ‘must read.’ Especially for those that voted for Barack Obama because
    we wanted to be a part of history. Yes, history was made alright. Yet
    now it is time to alter its course and make amends. Please share this
    link generously.]

    Just when you think things can’t be turned upside anymore in this country, something likes this
    Happens and you just think: will this nonsense ever end?

    Just about every Arab terrorist group does the same or more community service activities that they claim the Black Panthers did.

    I guess we should honor them like the Senator from Washington did one year.

    QEADA/ MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD/ NATION OF ISLAM, one that involved
    feeding breakfast to poor children, operating an ambulance service for
    people in neglected areas, screening people for sickle-cell anemia and
    infusing a spirit of MUSLIM pride within their communities.

    Would you take cash out of your pocket to help pay for this? I wouldn’t. Almost nobody would. But they did it anyway, without asking those who pay their salaries.

    And when the Black Panthers were standing out front of Philly’s polling area last election, with night sticks in hand, they were there only to share food and comfort to those whom they encountered…
