The Rise of the Black Klan

By Jeffrey T. Kuhner via The Washington Times

Black supremacy is on the march. It is a poison that is spreading across our  society, meeting little to no resistance. This must change. Otherwise, America  will confront the real prospect of racial conflict.

The New Black  Panthers are the tip of the spear. They champion black supremacy, hatred of  whites, and militant Islam. They are the black version of the Ku Klux Klan — bigoted thugs who practice vigilantism and mob rule. They placed a $10,000  bounty for the capture of George Zimmerman — “dead or alive” — for the killing  of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old black teenager. Their actions threaten the rule  of law. Placing bounties on people’s heads is an invitation to lawlessness and  murder. It has no place in a civilized society.

Recently, on their radio  show. the New Black Panthers called for a race war. In an April 6 broadcast,  Chawn Kweli, the party’s national spokesman, said that “true revolution means  some bloodshed.” In particular, he championed the racial cleansing of American  whites.

“And there are those who wish they could stand in this hour, to  see the destruction of the devil’s world and the devil’s society …” Mr. Kweli  said. “I’m talking about that blond-haired, blue-eyed, sometimes brown-eyed  Caucasian walking around with a mind-set, a demonistic mind-set, and a nature to  do evil and brutality.”

On that same broadcast, the Panthers’ chief of  staff, Michelle Williams, demanded that blood be spilled for Trayvon’s shooting. “Let me tell you, the things that’s about to happen, to these honkeys, these  crackers, these pigs, these pink people, these —- people,” she said in an  interview. “It has been long overdue.”

Mr. Kweli and Ms. Williams were  inciting violence and a race riot. Yet, Attorney General Eric Holder refuses to  file charges against the New Black Panthers. This is the same Mr. Holder who  dropped the case against members of the Black Panthers for their flagrant  intimidation of voters at a Philadelphia poll in the 2008 election. He has told  staffers at the Justice Department that he will not prosecute black civil rights  abuses perpetrated on white victims. Under his leadership, justice is not blind;  rather, it is viewed through a racialist lens.

It is not just,  however, the New Black Panthers. The sickness of ideological racialism even  reaches the White House. For more than 20 years, President Obama attended the  church of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. The pastor champions black liberation  theology. It fuses black nationalism with revolutionary socialism. Mr. Wright  baptized Mr. Obama’s daughters and presided over his marriage to Michelle. He  was Mr. Obama’s long-time spiritual adviser.

Recently, Mr. Wright was  back in the news. At a revival meeting in Charleston, W.Va., the pastor railed  against whites. He claimed that Jesus Christ, who was “not European,” was  crucified by the “European” — meaning white — Roman Governor Pontius Pilate. Mr.  Wright also attacked America’s supposed racist power structure, saying that it  was based on capitalist greed and black oppression.

“There are people in  power right now who have opinions about you based on their privilege of skin  color,” he said.

For Mr. Wright, the primary engine of history is race — especially, the imperialism of white supremacy. “The ignorance and arrogance of  white supremacy have the movers and shapers of world policy living in a  different world from people of color all together,” he raged. “And the sooner  you realize that the better off you’re gonna be.” His solution is what he calls “restorative justice and theology” — the redistribution of wealth from the upper  and middle classes to the poor.

Mr. Wright is simply a more polished  version of the New Black Panthers. He doesn’t call for blood on the streets. He  doesn’t walk around in military fatigues and jackboots wielding a club. But his  message is the same: Blame whitey. It is virulent racism masquerading as social  justice.

If George W. Bush had spent 20 years in the church of a white  supremacist, he never would have come close to winning the Republican nomination — never mind the presidency. Conservatives would have rightly excoriated him.  The liberal media would have driven him out of Washington. Yet, when it comes to  Mr. Obama, the press corps has been largely silent. The reason is simple and  pernicious: When it comes to race, there is a blatant double standard. White  racism is condemned; black racism is excused.

This racial hypocrisy  permeates American society. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan — all  are race-baiters and grievance-mongers who peddle a form of black nationalism.  Instead of being ostracized, they are embraced and their behavior is  rationalized by the liberal establishment. The N-word is routinely used by black  rappers and musicians. It can never be uttered, however, by whites.  Black-on-white crime is largely ignored by the media. White-on-black crime is  turned into a national tragedy — even when the alleged perpetrator is Hispanic,  such as Mr. Zimmerman.

Institutionalized discrimination against whites — affirmative action, racial quotas, and university admissions policies — has  become a permanent feature of life.
Liberals are playing with fire.  Multiethnic states — the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia — were torn  apart by nationalist passions. Other major countries, including China, France,  Britain, Spain, Canada and Nigeria, are under tremendous internal strain due to  resurgent tribalism. America is no exception. The danger of black revanchism is  that, if it remains unchecked, it may trigger a counterreaction among whites.  For every Farrakhan there could be a David Duke. The New Black Panthers would  then get what they want: a race war. And that battle will not end well — for  anybody, black or  white.
