I think they are mainly irrelevant in the last few years, but I don't think they were trying to incite a race war, mainly attaching themselves to a cause, just like a Limbaugh or Beck would, for publicity.
The New Black Panther Party (NBPP), whose formal name is the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, is a U.S.-based black political organization founded in Dallas, Texas in 1989. Despite its name, NBPP is not an official successor to the Black Panther Party. Members of the original Black Panther Party have insisted that the newer party is illegitimate and have firmly declared that "there is no new Black Panther Party". The Anti-Defamation League, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights consider the New Black Panthers to be a hate group.
Math. A gateway drug to reality.

"Forensic experts say newly released video by police of the man who shot Trayvon Martin raises more questions than it answers — but that's not stopping droves of amateur sleuths on TV, Twitter and Facebook from scrutinizing it anyway"
I agree, and you may be right. I just keep wondering why this particular case gets so much attention, but cases like where the white guy got beat by a group of non white people in Baltimore recently gets no attention.
IMO, many of the people who claim to be against racism are extremely racist themselves.
Wasn't the white guy in Baltimore a lost European tourist? the video was pretty ridiculous. Those "adults" acted like wild grade schoolers. I think this country is heavily cursed along with it's blessings. You don't see stuff like that in Baltimore in other first world country's cities from $300+ smartphone holding "citizens".
imo, Zimmerman was looking for trouble and wanted to beat up and hurt somebody. I wouldn't be surprised if he purposefully dabbed his head in the 17 yr old's bleeding gun wound minutes before the police got there to prop up his excuses.
because these types of people are becoming less and less effective in america where race is less and less of an issue, if one at all.. they then must become louder to be heard.. and when they have a media that will listen and promote, you can see how things get out of hand.. plus look at all the 'do gooders' who went down to rile everyone up for political/monetary gain.. only causes more division.. which in turn is what they want, i think, because like i said earlier they are becoming less and less relevant.. and they know it..
dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see
