    I think we probably agree. Do I think that they should be prosecuted? Yes. The right to vote is precious and should not be infringed on. However, I suspect that they were there with the misguided intention of ensuring that blacks felt safe voting. I've dealt with these folks in several communities. They aren't evil, just not very astute. However, I believe that they overstepped, and they should be prosecuted for that.

    For the record, I have some concerns that this prosecution is not moving forward, because clearly the result of the actions of the NBBP was to intimidate some/many voters in the locations where they appeared.

    However, I am sickened and repulsed by the overtly racist comments made by Mellie about this group with ZERO FACTUAL EVIDENCE to support them.

    This thread is not about the Civil Rights amendment. If you want to discuss it, start a new thread. If you continue to try to derail this thread into a conversation about it you will be removed from the thread.

    The topic is whether or not you feel the Black Panthers should be presecuted for Voter Intimidation, not whether or not libertarians wanting to repeal the civil rights act are racist or not.

    Final warning

    You're right, I got my stories mixed up. That's what I get for coloring and playing games while I am in the middle of debating. I guess that is why I don't normally check sites like these during the day lol sorry.

    Prove it's born from racism, that's your claim. They're racist because blah blah blah. But you've never demonstrated any of this was born from racism. That's your assumption. Coincidence, supposition and assumption is all you've brought to the table thus far. Of course, the best solution would be for you to get back on target and stay on topic...but it seems you're more interested in promoting your anti-libertarian message than actually keeping up with the topic on hand.
    You can be sure anyone who would roll back the civil rights act would receive the same critique. It just so happens libertarians are supportive of the black panthers indirectly.. or directly.. inadvertently whatever you like. Maybe that is one of them wonderful regulations libertarians would keep so the black panthers don't have a black only business district? Or inversely a white business district? I would be intimidated if I were black and the libertarian movement (that does have a political platform ie: the republican party.) was able to roll back the civil rights act that would allow for organisations to generate financial wealth and political effects.

    The civil rights act ought not to be changed and libertarians should stop pressing for microscopic government that lends to the building of racial tension. There is no need to deregulate this social intervention for the sake of your ideological goals.

    It was in philadelphia, no? . a black man would be of timid nature to be intimidated by whitey in philly.

    i find other things far more offensive.

    Some black folks have claimed that the po-pos make increased patrols around polling stations to intimidate black voters. Given the history of the BPP, this seems like something they would buy into and want to address. Stupidly, in this instance.

    racist.

    Thanks for playing.
    Which of your three sources is evenhanded and unbiased? Gateway Pundit? Don't make me laugh. Mahalo? The video is the same as we have seen here, the same prejudice as based on those people's look. And the third one is merely the personal opinion of a publicist. It is the usual anti-Obama bigotry. Is that your notion of evidence?

    I'm sorry, Mr. Croupier. It's a game with loaded dice.

    To be fair. While I did vote yes.. there is a poll with an option for "other" which usually welcomes explaination. But I understand.

    You're right, Catz. There's no evidence that I can find that they want complete black power in this nation. However, their leaders and idols have time and time again threatened violence to get what they want. Louis Farrakhan, Malcolm X, the man on the video I posted (leader of a Black Panther group), etc.

    And comparing someone standing a polling place with a weapon to a person at a rally with a weapon isn't the same.
