Accuracy in Media

CNN’s Anderson Cooper grilled New Black Panther Party spokesman, Minister Mikhail Muhammad, over his group’s involvement in the Trayvon Martin case, exposing the party’s racism.

Cooper: But I mean, just—factually speaking, what you’re saying does not make sense that under the Constitution you can make a citizens’ arrest. You can’t arrest somebody if they have not been charged with anything that’s still being investigated.

Muhammad: Well, according to the street law, he has been charged with murder.

Cooper: According to the what?

Muhammad: We have 40—30,000 people out here today—according to street law, according to God’s law. Andy, I want to say I don’t obey the white man’s law, I don’t follow the American law. The American law—the American law does not protect me, Anderson. I’m not a citizen. So I have no right to respect American law. So we decided to (unintelligible) language, to put pressure on the United Snakes, because these are snakes, government to arrest him. Because when the people find him, he may not be alive. So do your job. Do your job.

Muhammad kept up his rant, and Cooper, to his credit, didn’t back down. He asked him if the party wasn’t just trying to get in front of the cameras, and pointed out that even the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled them a hate group.

We don’t know all the facts in this case yet, but we do know that the New Black Panthers are not welcome by the family and are only fanning the flames of racism by their participation.

    There is a substantial double standard involved here. The politically correct believe that white on black crime is a problem but black on white crime is not a crime. The coception should be that the only two groups involved are people who obey the law and people who do not obey the law. The racial characteristics are only descriptions. When the name George Zimmerman it was assumed that he was white and therefore at fault. Also, a photo of the deceased when he aaa 13 years old was presented by the media as representative of the victim when in fact he was much larger than represented. When it was rockiest that Zimmerman was in fact not white and was a Hispanic some still insisted that he was white. There are now allegations of racial profiling. The New Black Panthers may take action believing that Eric Holder will give them f the capture Zimmerman. In fact when the Panhers put out notification that the were offering money for the capture of Zimmerman this was evidence of a criminal conspiracy to kidnap a citizen. Action should be taken now before someone kills Zimmerman or takes him prisoner.

    That “unintelligible” word was “CRAFT” as in craft language.

    You’re welcome.

    The ‘New’ Black Panthers are a newer version of old school murdering racists. Instead of bombing and murdering like they used to do in the 60’s, they now issue ‘bounties’ and have someone else do their dirty work for them.

    I got an answer for the ‘New” Black Panthers and it has to do with the Second Amendment.

    the word he said was CRAFT to CRAFT language

    Copper does not know what racism is about. Since he is white he assumes that you are guilty if you are not white, it’s a joke!!

  • Billiejean

    Wow I feel bad for any political party even the blank panthers to have such a degenerate idiot representing you, that guy was babbling on about nonsense. I doubt he has any education above a high school level but he is representing an all black political party so it only makes sense

    Lol, you’re so funny. How could you say whites fought and died to free blacks or that they didn’t say to kill black babies. Who put them into slavery in the first place? As to who started it all, wasn’t the KKK around way before the panthers? I don’t condone what the panthers are saying but if you’re gonna argue a point, at least get your facts straight.

    Yes please do get your facts straight, Americans never truly enslaved Africans, Africans enslaved Africans and sold them to europeans such as the French and the Dutch . Americans only continued that evil tradition until an American President, Abraham Linchon, freed them.

  • tony

    Blacks in Africa sold the slaves to slave traders. Now blacks are slaves to the democratic party and assorted other race hucksters

    you should read what M said again, because he is right, study some before you post. you dumb ass.
