Quite a few of you have emailed me this video asking for my opinion. So let me just quickly lay out the points.
First, this video proves what we always expected, Shabazz and his friend were there to intimidate voters (White voters). When the video of Shabazz emerged on Election Day, many on the left want to claim that the right was over reacting to Shabazz. This is nonsense. His mission was clear, keep as many white voters away from the polls as possible. We can now see his true intentions
Secondly, I am not the tiniest bit shocked by what this guy says. I grew up in New York City and I have seen hateful fools like him all over the place. I have seen them in downtown Brooklyn, on Wall Street and right outside Macy’s at Herald Square.
What does surprise me about Shabazz’s public rant and other brothers who do the same, is how many people completely ignore them. Once in a while I will see a brother or sister stop to listen, but mostly everyone just passes them by. Only once did I ever see a white man challenge them. Despite all the tough talk, when the white guy answered that group back, they did not do a damn thing to him. I suspect that if someone challenged Shabazz, they would get the same reaction.
The DOJ letting Shabazz off the hook was a very bad thing. It will no doubt serve to embolden the New Black Panther Party by giving them a false sense of immunity. Given the strained race relations recently, I expect that a major clash is coming.
