Hello Ms. Lahren.
I’m writing this as a response to a video that I saw of you on YouTube, which was a critique of Ms. Knowles recent performance. First I must confess that I am not a listener to Ms. Knowles, nor am I a viewer of you broadcast work. I prefer Deftones, and CounterCurrentNews for those needs.
I have some refutations to some of your claims in the video so here we go:
1. The inspiration for the Original ‘Black Panthers’ was not violence, or even retaliation. It was a necessity for the protection of Blacks. Back then, most Blacks were mostly non violent but we’re still attacked quite often by some Whites. It was very different from today’s time where the majority of Blacks are victims at the hands of other Blacks.
2. The non-violent approach made popular by Dr. King was great, but not always practical in specific cases. For example: A group of racists are about to beat, then rape a young Black man, and a young White woman which actually happened. In that particular situation, a non-violent approach to self defense would be in effective. So there would’ve armed Black Panthers to aid the young couple.
3. Her husbands past: I don’t know if he sold narcotics because I don’t know him, nor do I listen to his music either. But if it is true, then yes that was a contribution to the detriment of his own people (I assume he didn’t sell it in the suburbs) I don’t agree that that was wrong, but I do say that it would be irrelevant to this day because he’s not currently selling any.
4. I would like to know when she actually suggested or implied an opposition to Law Enforcement. Or is her presumed opposition merely an assertion brought on by an ill-informed conclusion? The rap group ‘NWA’ openly disparaged and disregarded Law Enforcement many years ago. That was clear and blatant, with no confusion to intent. There was a film released recently, which I did not desire to view but I’m almost certain that the song was featured in the film.
5. You must not confuse the current ‘New Black Panther’ party with the original. Today’s “new part” is blatantly racist and are very much in open opposition to Caucasians. But you must understand that today’s new black panthers are vastly different than the original Black Panthers.
