DURHAM -- An official with the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense said the black nationalist organization is providing security for the woman who has accused Duke lacrosse players of raping her.
And the organization is distributing recruitment brochures with information about a rally planned near the Duke campus for Monday. The brochures ask, "Had enough of disrespect and racism from Duke University?" The materials contain photographs of Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann, the two white lacrosse players indicted and charged with raping a black exotic dancer at 610 N. Buchanan Blvd. the night of March 13-14.
"We'll do the escort and the security, going to court, whatever it takes" to protect the accuser from threats allegedly being made against her, said Minister Na'jee Shaka Muhammad, national field marshal with the New Black Panther Party who is based out of Atlanta but working in Durham with the dancer and her family.
The New Black Panther Party rally and news conference is being planned for Monday morning in front of an entrance to Duke at Chapel Drive and Duke University Road. Attorney Malik Zulu Shabazz, the group's national chairman and the national spokesman of Black Lawyers for Justice, will be the keynote speaker.
Muhammad said plans ... include a march past the lacrosse practice fields and ... 610 N. Buchanan Blvd.
Founded in 1989 in Dallas, the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense has chapters across the U.S. It preaches self-determination for a black nation through revolutionary changes. Among other tenets of the organization are calls to free all incarcerated black people, exempting blacks from military service, education that "exposes the true nature of this devilish and decadent American society," and demands for trials by a jury of black peers.

"The sister had death threats," [Na'jee Shaka Muhammad] alleged. "The sister was afraid, she was talking about dropping the charges, she had no protection or security."
LOL ! Exactly .....
In case you thought things were settling down...
Just wait until they get it (racism) from us (the new BP party).
The only reason they exist afterall...
"Minister Na'jee Shaka Muhammad..."
Reminds me of the best article I saw here:

Someone needs to sit our people down and have a healthy discussion about the names we as African Americans are giving our children. We are hurting our kids and putting their futures in peril from the moment they are born.
Thats right, I said it. We are KILLING our kids and crippling their futures with the names we give them. Dont you want your kids to get JOBS someday? Good jobs, and serious careers? With a name like Jaquez JaQuan Diante, youre dooming your sons to a life of drug dealing on some seedy street corner.
Our Black men face enough challenges. I do not subscribe to the notion that we are giving our children names that convey pride in their African Heritage. Were way off the mark. Ive got dear friends from all over Africa, and their children have beautiful cultural names like Akos, Ama, and Fia.
Notice how neither of those names had a quita in it? Or an eisha? Or more than four syllables? Thats because even in the motherland, they dont give their kids the crazy names that we do in Black America. Many Africans even RESENT the implication that these names stem from their culture. Ive yet to meet anyone from any African nation named Shaquandiniquah Takeisha, or any other of the colorful monikers were pinning on brand new precious lives.
Parents, we are stacking the odds against our children from birth. Weve been doing it for generations, but we get mighty cross when white and mainstream America laughs and mocks us. With a name like Quieshianiquita (I know, I cant pronounce it either), youre dooming your children to employment at no better than a dollar store or the nearest fast-food joint.
You are automatically relegated in the minds of many to second-class citizenry, because when they hear the name, they instantly categorize you as ignorant, ghetto, incompetent, uneducated, and not worthy of much respect or basic human considerations.
We hear so often about African American students who excel in school, etc. and beat the odds. Well, guess what? Often times, the odds they have to beat is the tough challenge of being taken seriously in America with the atrocious name you gave them...names like Jaquisheia Shaquan Taiisha. If they can get someone to look past the name (and quit laughing), there is remarkable talent there in that person.
Unfortunately though, much of mainstream America isnt willing to find this out. Come in with the wrong name, and you are nothing more than fodder for stereotypical, distasteful jokes. We as African Americans face enough challenges as it is. Our kids deserve a better start and a way better shot than this.
Youre angry with me? I can live with that. Now answer this: when have you ever seen an IBM Executive or a fancy New York office with a fancy highrise office door nameplate that says Quandaniquah Roshel-Shaquita, Chief Executive Officer? When? You dont, and you never have, because the reality is, corporate America and a huge chuck of mainstream doesnt have a high regard for those names. Quite frankly, you wont be taken seriously.
Ive been behind many a closed door with white corporate America. Oddly enough, many of them still see the Negro in the room as non-existent or invisible, so they talked like I wasnt even in the room. I hear everything they say. When Nakia Shaniquah-Quashiqua fills out an application, they have a field day in the office. Once they get their fill of ghetto and weave jokes and ripping you to pieces sight unseen, they usually toss the application, or it gets stuck in the bottom of the pile. If they do hire you, youre relegated to some meaningless, inconsequential task behind the scenes so they wont be embarrased by you.
Ive learned the harsh truth that right or wrong, no quality mainstream company wants someone named (oh just pick a name) representing them in the forefront. We dont hear that, though. We just want you to get the name right, and look at you funny if you dont. I recall a time a young woman got really cross with me because her name was LaShiquita and I forgot to capitalize the S and left the little accent mark off the first i - how was I supposed to know? But lawd hamercy...what did I do THAT for? She was mad, hostile, and ready to FIGHT! It was a BIG ridiculously overblown embarassing ordeal (for her), and thats OUR fault, parents.
She wouldnt have such a huge chip on her shoulder and be so defensive, confrontational and mean if we had just given her a name that the average person can pronounce or spell. No spell check in the world can help, so most of her existence is spent correcting the spelling of her name, and feeling disrespected because people cant get it right. We set her up for this constant and unnecessary battle.
I do not advocate naming all our children Bobby and Susie. But lets do our babies a favor and keep the syllables down to a minimum, leave out the suffixes quita, sheika,eisha, niqua, quan...anysuffix with the letter Q. I could go on, but you get where I'm headed.And if you want your child to have an authentic African or other ethnic name, do a little research. Dont just make up a name and expect the world to be able to spell and pronounce it. You're not being original or cute. That child has to LIVE with that horrible name, and that's not funny...or cute.
Amen. Now pass the cornbread.
Sure looks like "some" folks are itching for a race riot.
If the Black Panthers are protecting this woman, who is going to protect the LAX players?
So which player had a mustache?
The liberals that run Duke University are learning that appeasement to race hustlers only begets more and worse race hustlers.
Since it looks like Bush wants to permanently saddle us with all of the illegals, can't we at least send these people to Mexico in exchange?
These guys hate white people, and I'm a racist?
I was just going to post this. It doesn't take much imagination to see that this woman will be the darling of the media and get Huge support (including financial) from the black community.
Notice how the Media cherry picks with Her Father's statements? He's all over the place.
On Rita Cosby Last night, he said that she was raped with the BROOM. And he admitted that she had been hospitalized for a Nervous breakdown (basically). I didn't see the hospitalization anywhere (in the media). Of course, Wendy Murphy, Lisa Bloom, and Gloria Allred, among others, all jumped on the broomstick and said, WHOA - that explains why NO DNA. However, only Dan Abrams correctly pointed out (and cared enough to check) that the Search Warrant didn't direct the investigator to look for a broom, confiscate with a broom, or sweep the place with a broom.
The MSM picks the parts of the Father's story that lets them forward this as a horrific act commited by evil, racist, thugs. At the same time, they ignore his comments that reflect poorly on her credibility (like being temporarily commited to a hospital for mental reasons).
One of the shows over the weekend interviewed the owner of the Strip club she tried out at in 2002. The owner of Diamond Girls said the woman was spaced out and acting funny. They asked her to stop dancing and it was like she couldn't hear them. Two people helped her off the stage and she went back stage and was on the floor in a condition where she was unresponsive again. This was the night she got her Larcency, assault, and DWI charges.
So, is there a medical or mental history of the woman going dead like a possum? Like she did on the night in question?
She wasn't raped, attacked, or maltreated on the night at Diamond Girls (her lawyer representing her did not make that defense). This will certainly help the Defense.
Apparently not the one she was 90% certain of, thank goodness. Seems to me she is on record now as saying the third fictional attacker had a mustache.
They should be learning from this. I would say the odds that they are actually learning is about 50-50. Everyone who helped stir up this mess, should be learning that once you let it out of the bottle, a mess like this is hard to put back in.
Good to see you back. And sadly your post is spot on.
LOL -- third fictional attacker.
Thank you for the election infomation on the previous thread.
As I understand it, the conventional wisdom among the hysterical feminist lawyer talking heads is that when someone wears the Rape Jacket, they often will use a false mustache-nose-glasses.
Now that's a good question. The players are 18-21 year olds that have been attacked by a politically motivated, out of control DA. They have had death threats. The coach received threats.
And this from the Raleigh N&O on March 28th:
"'The DNA will talk'
In the grassy quad outside his office, students took turns stepping before a microphone. Some shook with anger and teared up as they spoke.
"If you see them in class, ask them who did this," said Serena Sebring, a graduate student.
Some students sported T-shirts that said, "Men's Lax, Come Clean." A poster said, "The DNA will TALK, even if the COWARDS of men's lacrosse won't."
Students urged Duke officials to do more to pressure players into cooperating with police."
You make an excellent point, Peggybac, who is going to protect the Lacrosse players? Who is going to see that they get a fair trial (reads venue change)?
