Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.
Gee, where’s the NRA? Where’s the Tea Party to stand in solidarity with these people as they exercise their Second Amendment rights? Oh, that’s right…
Two dozen protesters from a gun club named after the founder of the Black Panther Party marched through the streets of South Dallas on Wednesday.
The open-carry rally was organized by the Huey P. Newton Gun Club to promote self-defense and community policing in response to recent police shootings.
Police monitored the black-clad demonstrators, some of whom had rifles slung over their shoulders. As they walked down MLK Boulevard, many chanted “black power” and “justice for Michael Brown,” the black teenager shot by police in suburban St. Louis.
At one point, the group stopped at Elaine’s Kitchen, and one of the organizers told those who were armed to display their weapons in a “safe, disciplined manner.”
An organizer who identified himself as Huey Freeman said they planned to patronize several South Dallas businesses to keep their money in the community and teach their neighbors about their “right to self-defense.”
I love Black militants. :)
I myself am thrilled to see pictures like this,for too long we have seen white people carrying their dam firearms, bravo bravo!

We want an immediate end to POLICE BRUTALITY and MURDER of black people.

nearly 50 years later, this STILL needs to said?
We were property for nearly 400 years. Violence against Black bodies is fundamental aspect of race relations in the US.
