According to the sources in the article, the defendant and victim were friends. I’m really appalled by the murder and the horrendous aftermath. But to consider it a “hate crime”? Two friends had an argument and one killed the other. It’s murder of a highly aggravated nature, but it isn’t a “hate crime”. It’s not considered a “hate crime” when a Black defendant drags a White victim behind a truck, is it? What’s the difference? Both men were Americans.
The new black panthers are just another “race-baiting” group along the same lines as the NAACP and the Rainbow Coalition run by Jessie Jackson. I remember The Black Panthers. These guys, the new black panthers, are rank amateurs!

UPDATE from Saturday in the park;
At Wise Park, New Panther Party Leader Malik Zulu Shabazz told the crowd that law enforcement was monitoring the event, but that security would be provided by his own supporters in the black community.
“So we will secure our own march,” Shabazz said. “Brothers you all are deputized. All of the Crips, the Bloods, the Vicelords, we all are one black family.”
Well now, that’s real nice…just “deputize” some of the worst elements in the Black community. Shabazz Mumbo-Jumbo is a f@&king idiot!
