    Is that unlawful? I don't think the Second Amendment sets any restriction like that.

    I don't think they are all innocent in their thoughts, I think that is why the creation of the "New Black Panthers" happened, because people with good intentions, were upset at the racism in that regular "Black Panther" group.

    But what is being judged is this one act, not every thought that has ever entered this persons mind.
    You mean the New Black Panthers who want total black power, don't know their own history including why the Founders put the 3/5 clause in the Constitution (more on that if you don't know what that means) and who enjoy stomping all over the American flag? Yeah...they're so innocent.

    Voter intimidation is indeed unlawful.

    Again I am being called bigoted. I can assure you I am not. Further you have not shown me how the rolling back of the civil rights act will not allow white only buisness to be started up. You can't because it does. Again it doesn't stop the black panthers from doing the same. Basically rolling back society to 50 years ago.

    Based on the action of Obama's DOJ, I guess now it's fine to stand in front of a polling place with weapons. Don't you love how history repeats itself?

    I have not seen that demonstrated.

    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.

    Please stop lying. The BPP was founded to stop POLICE INTIMIDATION in the black community. This was a widespread problem in the late 1960s-early 1970s, and it was a different world then.

    Perception is everything. For local community members going to the polls, if they knew these individuals, it could be that they'd be perceived as PROTECTING their right to vote.

    The BPP made a point of publicly carrying weapons BECAUSE IT WAS THEIR RIGHT TO DO SO. This was perceived as a threatening act because it was black men doing it. What is the difference between the BPP carrying weapons, publicly, to reinforce their right to do so, and tea party members doing the same--to reinforce their right to keep and bear arms?

    The menace is one of perception, not of intention, per se.

    Please provide evidence to substantiate this claim.

    Do you not support the right of Tea Party members to publicly demonstrate their 2nd Amendment right? do you think that blacks don't have the same rights?

    New Black Panther Party Mission:

    NewBlackPanther.com

    They don't want "total black power." They want complete control of their own destiny.

    Which, when you think about it apart from racial terms, isn't that different from the Tea Partiers.
