On Tuesday afternoon, the head of the New Black Panther Party Malik Shabazz spoke to a crowd of 150 people during a news conference. He condemned those in the community who forgave the alleged shooter, Dylann Roof, and encouraged black people to “arm yourself.” He called for them not to overcome but to overrun.
Local leaders gathered together on Wednesday to denounce Shabazz’s call for violence after the shooting deaths of the nine Emanuel AME Church members.
“They are more than welcome here,” said James Johnson about the Black Lawyers for Justice president and Black Lives Matter organizers who invited Shabazz to speak Tuesday. “But take that hate home with them,” according to the Post and Courier.
I applaud Mr. Johnson for speaking out against the hatemonger and racist Shabazz. We all need to come together as one regardless of our skin color or where we were born. Today is today, there were a lot of mistakes made back in history. We are to remember them so that we do not repeat them, not so we can sow hatred. “ALL LIVES MATTER”.
Here is part of the speech by Shabazz:
