Below is a link to an article giving some background information on the Black Panther Party. Despite what the media has done to smear their name the truth is still out there. There are a lot of false information surrounding the group. But in this day and age with the use of the Internet, we can easily search for the truth. No, I don’t advocate some of their beliefs but I understand why they took the stance they did. I understand why they took arms and exercise their second amendment rights out of self defense against the police brutality occurring in Oakland(the city in which they started). As much as we try to see this reality as black and white, it’s not! The dualities that exist create a world of gray. And that’s the beauty of our existence! There is not always a “right” or “wrong” in every situation. Only choices made, different opinions, and a reason behind everything…… Thus this is why we live in the 3rd dimension. So open your third eye and see the world around you!
