Sekou Osei on the beating of Elder BPP Warrior Dhoruba Bin Wahad
"As Ancestor Amiri Baraka would say, 'The only reason is no reason'."--Marvin X
Dhoruba Bin Wahad, New York Black Panther Party member, spent 19 years as a political prisoner.
understand the tactical errors on the part of Dhoruba, but one of the
contradictions of Brother Dhoruba is his intellectual and physical
fearlessness to confront. As you know I've had heard about this
incident, if you could you please give me the NBPP reasons for a 30
people attack against 6 people?
While I never took the NBPP seriously beyond militant "protest
theater" of angry symbolism and with "no program." But this leads to
some very profane conclusions of "counter-revolution." I gather that
Dhoruba wanted to confront the use of the "name" that has nothing in
common with the original Black Panther Party, while the New Black
Panther Party came out of masonic leadership under the leadership of
However, what I understood in my E-mal in June and July that the NBPP
was having an open round table discussion and Dhoruba felt that what
was needed was a full public disclosures of the origins of the NBPP and
its false actions of a radical tradition and as a revisionism of the
actual radical tradition.
What has to be noted, I guess Dhoruba felt he had to confront these
theater imposter himself, because there is no Black radical left to take
that on. The best that this so-called left does is call militant
protests as base building and relies on spontaneity that never comes.
They don't have the ability to analyze or critique and the best that
they do is create list of so-called Black radical theorist whose only
character is loquacious intellectual narcissism that provide no clarity
of anything and only provide academic feel-good speculation.
Perhaps from this, this was the background that Dhoruba felt he had to
take action to confront this stench of toads. While, Dhoruba may not of
had a full organization to carry out this ideological confrontation, it
would be a mistake to belittle Dhoruba confrontation as a silly
escapade of an old man and not see the counter-revolutionary character
and actions of the NBPP to attack a former political prisoner and never
lift a pinky to the agents and extra legal agents of the state that
murder Black people without consequence. And has taken this public
posture for the last 20 years...
