From: A Muslim Contributor to Bay Area Intifada

Earlier today I had the great pleasure of conducting a video interview with a solid Brother, and true internationalist revolutionary elder Dhoruba al Mujahid bin Wahad, former political prisoner, Black Panther and co founder of the Black Liberation Army.

The following segment is a short message to Muslim youth who are newly becoming politicized, but also touches on a brief history of Muslim social and political movements, white supremacy and Islamophobia, the War on Terror, Black Power and How / Why Dhoruba bin Wahad came to Islam while in prison.

Bay Area Intifada’s Black August Media Series – Episode 1: How To Make A Pig Act in A Desired Manner (1968)

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

UPDATE!!! NAN CLAYTON COUNTY AND NAACP BUST SNEAK MOVE IN POLICE BRUTALITY CASE!

NAN Clayton County and NAACP Clayton County Hold Secret Meeting With Clayton County Police Chief to Undermine Dhoruba Bin-Wahad’s Legal Case and Support Team Against Police Brutality

NAN leaders in Clayton County Georgia under direction of its national leadership headed by government informant Al Sharpton, along with NAACP Clayton County leadership, secretly attempted to establish a working relationship (or “protocol” as Police Chief Gregory Porter described it) with the Clayton County Police Chief to derail the political ramifications of the Police brutality case brought by Dhoruba Bin-Wahad against Clayton County Police officers.

According to Bin-Wahad’s Support Team (which includes activist clergy, Muslims, Civil Rights Activists, and prominent critics of Black institutional politics), NAN and the local NAACP met with the Clayton County Police Chief to discuss how to handle Bin-Wahad’s brutality complaint. This meeting took place behind the backs of Bin-Wahad’s Attorney Mawuli Davis and his lead spokespersons, Reverend Derrick Rice of Sankofa United Church of Christ and Kalonji Changa of the FTP Movement. This secret meeting was revealed to the spokespersons of Bin-Wahad’s Support Team by Chief Gregory Porter during a meeting at the Clayton County Police Headquarters following the recent Town Hall forum convened by Bin-Wahad’s SupportTeam. The forum launched as a national campaign to reign over the militarized law enforcement agencies that have been responsible for dozens of deaths in theBlack, poor, and marginalized communities of America.
