New Black Panther Party Considers Going To Polls To Prevent ‘Intimidation’
UPI
The New Black Panther Party might be at the polls in November.

The New Black Panther Party might be at the polls in November. National chairman of the New Black Panther Party Malik Zulu Shabazz said in a recent radio interview that they might show up at the polls to prevent “intimidation against our people.”

During an interview on WABC Radio’s “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” Shabazz was asked about the Democratic National Convention, President Barack Obama and the election in November.

Shabazz said there is obviously less excitement in 2012 than in 2008. “Many in my community don’t have the same enthusiasm.”

He went on to call Obama “a disappointment,” and said that the Democratic Party is taking the black vote for granted.

Although Shabazz is not happy with the present administration, he said the black community should consider Obama and the Democratic Party “the lesser of two evils.”

According to Shabazz, the New Black Panther Party will consider forming a presence at the polls so that black voters will not be intimidated.

In 2008, members of the New Black Panther Party made an appearance in Philadelphia. Two members were charged with voter intimidation, but charges were dropped.
