Ex-Black Panthers Leader Criticizes Public-Protests-Only Approach of Black Lives Matter

Sounds like an ex-Black Panthers leader wants ‘Black Lives Matter’ to become a new type of Black Panthers movement, doesn’t it? This from Vibe:

The former chairwoman of the Black Panther Party isn’t fond of the Black Lives Matter movement. Elaine Brown believes that the BLM and it’s “hands-up, don’t shoot” slogan, reflects a “plantation mentality.”

In an interview with the U.K. news site, Spiked-online, Brown said she doesn’t “know what Black Lives Matter does,” and therefore cannot compare it to the Black Panther Party…

Brown also stated that the “new generation” of young people “complaining and protesting about the murder of young black men and women by police” have no other plans beyond public protests.

“They will protest but they will not rise up in an organized fashion, with an agenda, to create revolutionary change,” noted the 73-year-old activist. “We advocated community self-defense organizations to be formed, so that we would not be assaulted by the police, so that we would bear arms and assume our human rights.”
