Black Panther Party Chairman Bobby Seale, sets the mic ablaze, bringing it…
In commemoration of Black August, Bay Area Intifada will be sharing a variety of audio, video and photographic media throughout the month every 2-3 days. This is the first in the series, listen and share. Keep paying attention we’ll be sharing the next one, on Wednesday or Thursday.
This is a VERY timely and resonant speech by the Chairman for a time, like the present, where black murder by police is in the spotlight. Aside from some of the “jive assed turkey” references, what is broken down here might as well be spoken today, the problems are not just the same but worse. This isn’t the tame BBQ Sauce selling Bobby Seale of today here, nope, this is the Bobby spittin’ that fire that made J Edgar Hoover twitch, twist and cringe.
“What is a Pig? – A low natured beast that has no regard for law, justice, or the rights of people; a creature that bites the hand that feeds it; a foul depraved traducer, usually found masquerading as the victim of an unprovoked attack.” – Black Panther Party Minister of Defense, Huey P Newton
