Huey P. Newton, Ishmael Reed & Jawanza Kunjufu On Racism Again Black Men (1988)
1. White woman: You scared people Huey. The Black Panthers scared people.
Huey Newton: Any time the black man attempts to change the slave image he will scare white people.
2. Jawanza Kunjufu: Why were black people brought into this country? They were brought here to work. Does that reason exist today? America has a problem. What do they do with a people they no longer need?
3. White woman: I hate to disagree, but I was stopped this morning at 5:30 [a.m.] walking my dog by a policeman who just wanted to know why I was out at that hour.
Huey Newton: Of course, we weren’t talking about white people are never arrested, white people are never stopped. See, that’s an absolute statement. We mean as a statistical average that blacks are more often stopped according to our number that we represent in society which is only about 11%. And I think that’s a very racist way to look at things.
White man: You know what? How do we change this? It”s the same old talk!
Huey Newton: The way you change it is through revolution. The way you change it is changing the entire institutionalized racism in this country.
We have to start movement likes the Civil Rights movement, continue it like the Black Panther Party, continue it like the Republic of New Afrika, continue movements like the Nation of Islam, because it needs all of those groups, all of those movements just to start to make a dent in the kind of twisted mentality white people have in this country, from the upper class to the middle class, because they all profit by the situation of black oppression one way or the other-even when they don’t want to.
4. White woman: I see some black men as it’s their attitude. You have the Black Panthers but you are separating yourselves still, and we’re going to get a group, then you’re going to get a group, and that’s what separates us.
Huey Newton: We don’t have to separate ourselves when we’re already separated … I think that our problem is so large until it takes more than Martin Luther King, it takes more than Malcolm X, it takes more than Huey Newton to solve this problem, so I would like to know how this young lady will contribute in her actions or in her teachings to solve the problem.
This was mad informative and those hosts weren’t trying to hear the truth!
