Spreading a message of racial war, former New Black Panther Party Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz told a group of about 200 black people in Charleston that it’s time to “complete the mission” and kill white “slave masters” and their families.
“Let this cracker hear you!” he shouted to the crowd at a Save the Black Church rally Tuesday.
Shabazz ridiculed the families of the victims of the Charleston AME Church shootings that killed nine black people for forgiving alleged killer Dylann Roof.
“You are not the ones that we saw on the television screen,” he told the crowd. “Sitting in the house of God talking about ‘We shall overcome.’”
“We shall overcome with who? The children of the slave master and the children of slaves? No wonder you ain’t overcome,” he said.
“We come here to let you know that g**d*** it we don’t forgive nobody,” he shouted.
Shabazz told the story of Denmark Vesey, a slave who planned a revolt but was thwarted when other slaves leaked the plan, resulting in Vesey and 35 other conspirators being hung.
Vesey’s name trended on Twitter following the church massacre as he was a founder of the Emanuel AME Church. The shooting happened on the 193rd anniversary of his thwarted slave revolt, according to Raw Story.
“Denmark Vesey had a plan to kill all the slave masters in the state,” he said. “Denmark Vesey had a plan to kill every last one of them and kill all of their g**d*** families.”
“That which we saw in that church does not represent the spirit of Denmark Vesey,” he proclaimed. “They have betrayed Denmark Vesey.”
“We have to complete what Denmark didn’t finish,” he declared. “Denmark didn’t finish his mission.”
Shabazz was chairman of the New Black Panther Party in 2009 when then-Attorney General Eric Holder refused to prosecute two members of the group for standing outside a Philadelphia polling station in military garb, threatening potential voters.
Twitter users who remember that case weren’t expecting any better from the outfit. As one wrote: “You and I would be arrested, but this guy is protected by O’s DOJ.”
Twitter users were outraged by the speech.
So what is considered inciting to riot, or does that only apply to whites? Black Panther Malik Shabazz Urges Cha… http://t.co/fUcPOpSGYu
