    What exactly is the Spiritual stance of the Black Panther Party? THE SON OF MAN TEMPLE was created by Huey P. Newton which had a purpose in the spiritual  lives of the Panthers through the acceptance of all, but mandated no religious preference. It is stated as follows by Huey in the “STATEMENT OF PURPOSE”


    “We have always hoped that we could establish a place in our community where hundreds of ideas could grow and flourish, where people could feel free to say and do the things that seemed most natural to them.  The Son of Man Temple was created for that purpose, to serve in humankind’s development.


    However, the place in which we come together to espresso our humanity is not a church in the most traditional sense.  We do not practice a religion; we are not Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, or Moslem. We do not honor one God or one reverend.  This does not mean that we negate any religion; we all have differing philosophies and jews of our world.  We are all part of everything and it is a part of each of us.


    Our belief is that every human being has the right to be free.  We can all agree that we are not.  Therefore, we come together to express our agreement on the belief every Sunday at the Son of Man Temple.  It is a place where we can come to discover and learn.  If we begin the week with this kind of unity and understanding, we can carry through each day our concern and an enthusiastic felling about our survival and our freedom.   


     The ways in which we express this agreement about our desire to break away from our common problems—oppression—may differ.  Some of us might sing or dance about it, some of us might play music about it, or some of us might speak about various aspects of our problem. It does not matter what we do if it is done with sincerity and in our people’s interest." Huey P. Newton

    "The threat to American apartheid led by Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X in the ‘60s initiated a great democratic awakening, especially among young Black People.  This awakening was the de-nigerization of BlackPeople —the process of turning sacred, intimidated, helpless folk into bold, brave hopeful people willing to live and die for Black freedom.  


    The Black Panther Party was the most advanced organized effort to exemplify this awakening. In other words, it was the highest from of deniggerization in niggerized America. The Black Panther Party was the greatest threat to american apartheid because it was indigenous in composition, interracial in strategies and tactics, and international invasion and analysis.  It was indigenous in  that it spoke to the needs and hope of the local community, as can be seen in the historic Survival Program of the party.  It combined bread-and-butter issues of everyday people with democratic empowerment in the face of issues of everyday people with deep democratic empowerment in the face of an oppressive status quo.  It  was interracial in that it remained open ot stratigic alliances and tactical coalations with progressive brown, red, yellow and white activists.   And it was international in that it understood American apartheid in light of anti-imperial struggles around the world, especially in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.  the revolutionary politics of the Black Panther Party linked  the catastrophic conditions of local Black communities (with the disgraceful school systems, unavailable health and childcare, high levels of unemployment and underemployment, escalating rates of imprisonment, and pervasive from of self-hatred and self-destruction) to economic inequality in America and colonial or neocolonial realities in the capitalist world system. Needless to say this great awakening was too much for the american establishment." West

    Every one of Black African Women in America have been touched by the murder of our people in this country. We come from a long line of warriors men as well as women, in our history of African Civilization we find records of this from Pharaoh Hatshepsut  her name means "Foremost of Noble Ladies", and on her accession as pharaoh she took the throne name "Ma´atkare" ("truth is the soul of Ra).Born in the 15th century BC, Hatshepsut, daughter of Tuthmose I and Aahmes, both of royal lineage, was the favorite of their three children. When her two brothers died, she was in the unique position to gain the throne upon the death of her father.  I would like to see an entire movement of BLACK AFRICAN WOMEN like these great women. Each Revoluton that involved BLACK AFRICAN WOMEN,  came to an abrupt very bad end for White Opperssors. The Amazons of Abomey called Dahomey caused the end of the slave trade in Oyo and the Gold Coast of Africa.  "The use of Female troops was due, at least in part, to an acute shortage of man power.  With its total population of less than 200, 000, Abomey often bested enemies with five or ten times as many people. Abomey prospered for a century and a half. When the state Union was formed, it was subject to the king of Oyo, but Oyo's power over Abomey weakened progressively.  In 1726, and again in 1728, 1729, and 1730, the cavalry of Oyo swept into Dahomey, defeated the troops of the Fon, and spread devastation.  After each invasion, however, the Fon, recuperated rapidly and they never lost control of their costal vassal states."  
    "For every individual his or her own cultural identity is a function of that of his or her people.  Consequently, one must define the cultural identity of a people.  This means, to a great extent, one must analyze the components of collective personality." CHEIKH ANTA DIOP

     WHAT EXACTLY IS TRIBAL WAR? 
    "For every individual his or her own cultural identity is a function of that of his or her people.  Consequently, one must define the cultural identity of a people.  This means, to a great extent, one must analyze the components of collective personality.  We know that three factors contribute to its formation: 1.) A historical factor, 2.) A linguistic factor, 3.) A psychological factor.   "Chapter 14 HOW TO DEFINE CULTURAL IDENTITY? Civilization or Barbarism by CHEIKH ANTA DIOP".
    When those characteristics become more important than the fact that we are all Black People that is when it becomes Tribal War.   The only conclusion that can be drawn from the evidence of the wars in Africa of internal power struggle is that those differences that can not be resolved.  So when Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seal created the Party with the basis of an African Political Structure.  Let's take the Political structure of Oyo for example which was very complex.  the Alafin had broad powers, and in typical Sudanic fashions, was held to be semidivine. His power was balanced, by a council, the Oya Mesi, which was headed by an official called the bushorun.

    This week we will start the study of the Amazon Warriors of Dahomey. The account of the Warrior Women of Oyo by the British Vampire Sir Richard Burton in 1863. In order for us to analyze why we are in this state of Slavery as captives of Africa we must examine the STATES OF THE WEST AFRICAN FORESTS from which we came.  There are many who condemn the Black African American Woman for her incredible ability and strength.  We are abused by the very seed we have sown, the Black African American male. Some of our sisters are not our sisters because they have no idea how history records us. The Willy Lynch Syndrome was specifically developed to conquer the African Woman and make her believe that she was helpless. Why? Because we are the most formidable enemy of the White Devil and his slaves who follow his lead and continue to abuse us. Tonight we will study exactly what happened before the slave trade in the West African Forests where we were captured and sold. “The women’s military corps was fully functioning unit.  It’s women often termed Amazons by visiting Europeans- fought along side the corps of male soldiers in both offensive and defensive actions.The Asian Model of Production, in the fall of the Chinese revolution of An Lu-Shan during the T’ang period in the 9th century when the men were all slaughtered by the emperor and the women sold into slavery, we tried to prevent this from happening to us. Although our destines are extricably tied together African women and African men have lost the unity of struggle and fight together. Instead of us uniting to fight a common enemy today we fight each other, because our men have been trained to hate and mistrust us. We as a people must find out why this is happening and change it, through the study of our past victory against the White Devils.   This week “THE HISTORY OF AFRICAN CIVILIZATION” by E. Jefferson Murphy.

    Tonight on World Wide Africa The Voice of the Pan African movement we continue with the reading of Cheick Ahta Diop, Civilization or Barbarism and our look at the failure of the American Government in 1968.  We will analyze how the lie of White Supremacy can not survive by comparing the African Mode of Politics and the Indo-Aryan Mode of Politics.  Contrasting the difference between the actual ancient governments and the longevity of the political system itself.  The Black Panther Party for Self Defense patterned their system of body politic according to the A.M.P. so that the people would understand that you can’t get blood from a rock.  A metaphoric statement of personification of the intimate object, which is the meaning of Chattel.   So to the White Supremacist who lies about everything, we could have never been Chattel because we bleed.  All human life comes form the African, and therefore so do these Ino-Aryan people the Caucasian people. Every empire they have set up has come to an abrupt end, where as our Pharaoh’s of Egypt that ruled the world thrived for millions of years called Dynasties.  


    So if we become a separate government for the survival of our people against and oppressive government we have enforced our rights as human beings.  The inalienable right to choose the government we give our consent to be governed by.  Every faction of the “Panther Mode of Politics” joined in a political and social body is the worst nightmare of those who wish to keep us in an oppressive state.

    The theory of Dr. Francis Cress Welsing on the genetic deficiency of the White People distinguish us from them let's examine further.


    "Therefore , this is not a value judgement: there is no particular glory about the cradle of humanity being Africa, because it is just an accident. If the Physical conditions of the planet had been otherwise, the origin of humanity would have been different.


    Race does not exist! Is it to say that nothing allows me to distinguish myself from a Swede, and that, a Zulu can prove to Botha(Prime minister of the White minority government of South Africa) that they both are of the same genetic stock, even if accidentally  their phenotypes, meaning their physical appearances, are different?


    Certainly, the dilution of the human species genes during prehistoric times is very important; but from there to deny race, in the sense that it impacts on history and on social relations, meaning at the phenotypical level, which is of interest solely to the historian and to the sociologist, is a step that the daily facts of life prohibit anyone form taking.

    “ It is the advent of absolute chronology, meaning the radioactive dating methods , particularly that of Potassium-Argon, that allowed science to make great progress and derby disparage the dogmatism  that prevailed not long ago in their domain.   In fact, the stratigraphical methods did not offer a clear-cut choice between the scholars’ differing views.  Thus, as pertaining to the main issue, it has been shown that the first inhabitants of Europe was a migrating Black:  the Grimaldi Man.  But a prominent authority, the late French scholar Raymond Vaufrey, had decreed that Africa was backward.   From then on, to the eyes of the scholar, the prehistorical facts of Africa were made to appear more recent in order for them explain a prior antiquity of Europe.  Obviously, neither the Germaldi Man or the Combe-Capelle Man, both being Black, could have been indigenous to Europe. However, a chronological difficulty related to the limits of the stragraphical methods would not allow that these men originate form Africa.


    Racial differentiation took place n Europe, probably in southern France and in Spain, at the end of the last Wurm galacition, between 40,000 and 20,000 years ago We understand now because of the above cited facts, why the first inhabitant of Europe was the Grimaldi Black man who was responsible for the first lithical industry of the European Upper Paleolithic period called Aurigiacain industry


     Some believed they saw in the Lower Pergordian a strictly European industry anterior to the previous one, whose creator would have been truly indigenous to Europe, ass opposed to the Grimaldi Black invader.  This refers to the Combe-Capelle Man." Cheikh Anta Diop

    “1. Sun Tzu said: In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good. So, too, it is better to recapture an army entire than to destroy it, to capture a regiment, a detachment or a company entire than to destroy them.”
    “2. Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.”
    Excerpt From: Tzu, Sun. “The Art of War.” iBooks. 
    Thus fell a system which had existed in this country without doubt, and which had been occasionally forced upon its colonies and has continued to this day—that is, above fifty years—without further interruption.
    "A very great vision is needed and the man who has it must follow it as the eagle seeks the deepest blue of the sky. I was hostile to the white man...we preferred hunting to a life of idleness on our reservations. At times we did not get enough to eat and we were not allowed to hunt. All we wanted was peace and to be left alone. Soldiers came and destroyed our villages. Then Long Hair (Custer) came...They say we massacred him, but he would have done the same to us. Our first impulse was to escape but we were so hemmed in we had to fight."
    Crazy Horse, 
     What exactly is the concept of the Black Panther to the creator of the Party.  The greatest love for the People that could be conceived by the man we call Huey P. Newton. The education of the masses on their real condition  at the oppressive hand of the  Government and their Police forces, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Beau of Investigations. He sacrificed himself for the great love for his people and the relief from oppression his deepest desire to see them free. Like many other leaders of people's great struggles

    Tonight on our show the AMERICAN SLAVE CODE: SLAVES CANNOT CONSTITUTE FAMILIES; Chapter  VIII “  The family relation originates in the institution of marriage, and exists not without it. We have already proved that slaves cannot have families or be members of families, by proving that they cannot be married.  To this latter point, in its connection with the former, we cite the words of Judge Jay:  A necessary consequence of slavery is the absence of the marriage relation. No slave can commit bigamy, because the law knows no more of the marriage of slaves than of the marriage of brutes. A lave may indeed, be formally married, but so far as the legal rights and obligations are concerned, it is an idle ceremony. Of course, these laws do not recognize the partial relation, as belonging to the slaves.  A slave has no more legal authority over his child than a cow has over her calf.” We live in a Slave Citizenship called Capitalism. Capital being the main objective of subjugation, weather you are outside in the so called free world or behind the walls they build that box us in. We have to start to move outside of the box, not just think outside of the box. This is an excerpt from Soledad Brothers letters of George Jackson in his last years of life. You see Jackson's life ended the day he was sentenced to prison on a charge that was never proven and prison is where he was killed, for $75.00. IN this letter you can feel the pain of a resolved dead man who has died before he has been killed. You see as I read the letters of George Jackson I see so much how it relates to the training we are receiving now in the slave camps. The destruction of this family was cold and calculated by the Government of the United Snakes of America. Two sons were killed for the price of $75.00.
