I just read Gregory Kane’s article over at BlackAmericaWeb.com entitled “What Was the Greatest Black Conservative Organization Ever? The Black Panthers“. Forget about the racist, fraudulent, front group Black America’s PAC (BAMPAC). Oh no, when black Americans create their own conservative organization, it has a home-grown unique flavor. Like the difference between sauteed spinach and collard greens with hot sauce and bacon. Oh and it won’t be underground or subtle. Like the Panthers, Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice or Ward Connerly, for example, they’ll make themselves known and get attention. From the article:

But on many of their core principles, the Panthers were the forerunners of today’s black conservatives. Four examples prove my point.

1. The Panthers absolutely believed in the Second Amendment. Today’s black liberal Democrats scurry for the hills whenever anybody mentions gun rights. In 1966, Newton and Seale had the gall to tell Oakland and the world that both the spirit and letter of the words “a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” applied to black folks.

I think this article is a bit tongue-in-cheek. After all, we used to get the Black Panther Party newsletter at home when I was a little kid. Other periodicals included the Crisis, Ebony, and um, Harper’s Bazaar.

Right. Anyway, I actually read it as a little kid. I don’t remember much. I liked the cartoons.
