Footage from a black nationalist rally in Oklahoma’s Tulsa emerged over the weekend, giving chilling insight into the double standard when it comes to media coverage of extremism.
The recorded gathering was part of the National Black Power Convention this weekend, and depicts activists giving speeches that border on genocidal.
Clad in black uniforms bearing black nationalist insignia, the activists are reportedly part of the New Black Panther Party.
“We’re pushing death to white supremacy, death to capitalism, death to imperialism, and death to fascism. We’re pushing an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a head for a head, and a life for a life,” one man said as he addressed the crowd with a megaphone. “White supremacists bust us upside the head and drug us over here to pick cotton, so they can get rich, so they can get wealthy.”
Speakers then began demanding more serious action.
“Black people will kill everything white in sight,” the man said. “All what you’ve done to us, all of what you’re done in the 6,000 year span and killing 600 million of us and 408 years in particular.”
“They put us through vicious suffering, vicious oppression,” another said. “Once they are buried, we must bury them, dig them up, and kill them again.”
Eventually, his words became a chant by those in attendance.
According to Public Radio Tulsa, the event was scheduled to follow closely with the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921.
