Another, Different Protest on May 1

As if there weren’t enough protests planned for Monday, another rally has just been thrown into the mix.

The New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense plans to march at Duke University on May 1 to "deal directly" with lacrosse players concerning rape charges.

The News & Observer reports that police departments are preparing for the “black-separatist group, which has a reputation for coming to its protests armed.”

The group’s leader,  Malik Zulu Shabazz, says, "We as black men cannot sit idly by and allow white men to rape black women, regardless of what our sister (who by nature is a queen and a divine black woman) was doing," reports the paper citing a media release on the event.

Shabazz also noted "We are conducting an independent investigation, and we intend to enter the campus and interview lacrosse players," according to the article in The News & Observer.

Umm… I wonder what their “independent investigation” will find? I mean, I’m sure Shabazz doesn’t have any pre-conceived notions about the case.

Although Duke is a private institution, the university will allow the group on campus provided it follows the rules, reports the article.

And when asked if they will be “armed” during their campus visit, The News & Observer reports, “Shabazz chuckled and said, ‘I don’t know if I can comment on that.’”

That’s tremendous! You know, I just thinking, what could really make this Duke incident even more interesting…  a bunch of militants running around campus conducting their own investigation. Perfect!
