Black community shakes up Duke University
http://www.finalcall.com/artman/publish/article_2632.shtml ^ | By Jesse Muhammad

Posted on 05/21/2006 3:27:59 PM PDT by SmoothTalker

". As a result of the media maligning the character of the rape victim, New Black Panther Party (NBPP) National Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz rallied his organization, local leaders and residents to take a stand against the injustice surrounding this heated case, and organized a press conference, demonstration and town hall meeting on May 1. As an attorney, he held concerns about the effective prosecution of the case and announced his decision to conduct a private investigation.

“The history of Duke University is rooted in racism. Racism existed long before we (NBPP) got here. The two defendants must be brought to justice and we will accept nothing else!” demanded Atty. Shabazz during the press conference held at the Duke campus entrance on Chapel Drive. “We are here to say to our Sister, you need not fear testifying. You have strong support and backing.”"

"Adding to this fervor, a few days before the demonstration, Duke University President Richard Brodhead sent out an email “warning” students, staff and faculty of the arrival of the group he and others deemed “an extremist group who carry guns that will not be allowed to disrupt the campus.” Despite such attempts by him and the media to drum up fear and tension with this image, residents showered the NBPP with love and support for standing up with courage.

In his press statement, Atty. Shabazz presented eight demands formulated by members of the Black community of Durham, which included that the defendants in the rape case, Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann, be tried and convicted, an immediate end to all attacks on the victim, an end to irresponsible media reporting, and that the crime scene on Buchanan St. be converted into a Rape Crisis Center."

"We are outraged by the rape of our Sister,” Min. David stressed. “They don’t expect Black men to stand up for their women, but we are here.”"

"Victoria Peterson presented statistics that show over 80 rape cases that have occurred in that part of town, with five of them taking place on the campus of Duke. “You talk about the Panthers being dangerous, but this university is a danger to the people of Durham,” she contended.

“We must put a stop to all rapes and sexual assaults on all women. We are tired of this and want it to end now,” pled Sasha of NCCU."

"The day of the demonstration marked the first day of final exams for the students—the reason given by Duke Police Chief Robert Dean and Aaron Graves, vice president for campus safety and security, for preventing the demonstrators from entering the campus to march. University officials said previously they wanted to allow students to study for exams without “disruption.”

Unshaken by the opposition, the residents chanted, “Black power!” and “Shame on Duke” along with the Panthers as they marched two miles to the house on Buchanan. With a police escort, the line of marchers swelled as onlookers fell into step with what has been called the largest march ever held in that area."

I found this to be the gem of this article. Durham is a crime ridden hole. Duke is one of the few areas anywhere near downtown where you'd feel safe walking around at night.

What about being presumed innocent, and only being convicted if the state PROVES they're guilty????

What is this, the OJ trial in reverse?

I have to think now that these college kids ARE GOING TO BE CONVICTED no matter what it takes or the Black Pussies will start riots all around the area.

This situation has ceased to be an investigation/trial and now has turned into an inquisition.

Great. So when the two defendants walk because THEY DIDN'T FREAKIN' DO ANYTHING is it safe to say that we can expect rioting?

First, since when is "attorney" a title like Professor or Doctor? A weak attempt to grap legitimacy from the ether.
Second, they demand the conviction? Look Mr. Zulu, if the evidence says they didn't do it, then they didn't. Let the justice system run it's course. Hey even O.J. got acquitted.

If you could eliminate black crime in Durham, they would probably have one of the lower crime rates in the nation. But then again, that seems to be the case in all cities, doesn't it?

According to the N.B.L., you would think that the alleged victims just arrived from a Church Sunday school class for Bible studies, instead of being paid to show her physical attributes to the boys, if she have any!??!
So in the reality, what was her purpose to being paid $400?
Singing Kumbaya??
One can just wonder???

I'm sorry to have maligned the character of an adulterous thieving druggie who whores her body. How can I make this up to you?

I'm still giggling over Malik Zulu Shabazz, it sounds like one of those names that you make up when you're sitting around, making up more and more ridiculous names or phrases so everyone will laugh.

Maybe the university should move. Then those who are making a living off those awful racists can find out what it's like to have no work in town at all.

Mr. Shabazz, are you telling us that even if these young men are innocent of all charges as the evidence seems to clearly indicate, the jury must find them guilty anyway, just to pacify you and the lynch mob you are leading?

Do you black panthers assume that the judge in this case will permit you dudes to sit in court and yell threatening and intimidating sh*t at the defendendants and the jury as one of your idiot horde yelled "dead man walking!" at the defendant a few days ago?

It is laughable to see you...... gentlemen, pretending to stand up for a woman, any woman any race, since your most favorite and endearing terms for women in general is either, "ho or bitch.

Can't argue with those stats! Shut down Duke and there would have only been 75 rapes.

The only injustice going on is the persecution of the LaCrosse team members being charged in this hoax and the self loathing whore of a DA who is prosecuting this travesty. Not to mention the Black racism being openly displayed.

No permit required for a shotgun or long rifle. Same for handguns. If you CONCEAL a firearm, there is a permit required. If I was an overcompensating egomaniacal paranoid, I could carry my .45 in a holster in full view as long as I am not on federal property, a mall, bank, etc...
