At a rally on Tuesday, New Black Panther leader, Malik Zulu Shabazz, told a group of about 200 black people in Charleston that it’s time to “complete the mission” and kill white “slave masters” and their families.
Shabazz is referring to completing the mission of Denmark Vesey, a slave who strategized to kill slave masters nearly two centuries ago when the church where the 9 were murdered was being founded.
However, Vesey’s plans were foiled by other slaves and he and 35 other conspirators were hung.
“Let this cracker hear you!” he shouted to the crowd at a Save the Black Church rally Tuesday.
He led the crowd in a chant of “Black power” and “by any means necessary.” And continued with another, “What do we want? Justice, When do we want it? Now.”
Shabazz ridiculed the families of the victims of the Charleston church shootings that killed nine black people for forgiving murderer Dylann Roof.
“You are not the ones that we saw on the television screen. Sitting in the house of God talking about ‘We shall overcome.’
We shall overcome with who? The children of the slave master and the children of slaves? No wonder you ain’t overcome.
We come here to let you know that g**d*** it we don’t forgive nobody.”
He then talked about completing Denmark Vesey’s mission.
“Denmark Vesey had a plan to kill all the slave masters in the state. Denmark Vesey had a plan to kill every last one of them and kill all of their g**d*** families.
That which we saw in that church does not represent the spirit of Denmark Vesey. They have betrayed Denmark Vesey.
We have to complete what Denmark didn’t finish. Denmark didn’t finish his mission.”
The New Black Panther Party at one point offered a $10,000 reward for George Zimmerman, “dead or alive,” before Zimmerman was cleared of all charges in Trayvon Martin’s death.
Breitbart reported that Shabazz also played a “prominent role in the Baltimore and Ferguson uprisings,” and now heads a group called Black Lawyers for Justice.
