Panther Malik Shabazz: In Selma, Obama Drew From the ‘Tenets of Black Liberation Theology’

Verum Serum

Today, Andrew Breitbart published some photographs of an event in March 2007 where Senator and candidate Barack Obama shared a stage with Malik Shabazz of the New Black Panther Party.

It may be difficult to appreciate now, but at the time of this event Senator Obama was still considered a long shot for the White House. Hillary was still ahead in the polls and, thanks to a call from Bill, had stalled an endorsement from civil rights icons John Lewis.

Meanwhile, Obama’s support among black Americans was soft. Just a few weeks before this event with the Panthers, Steve Kroft of CBS’ 60 Minutes had noted that some were openly questioning Obama’s racial authenticity saying “There are African-Americans who don’t think that you’re black enough, who don’t think that you have had the required experience.” Obama smiled at this, but it was clear he had work to do.

Obama’s trip to Selma was obviously intended as a solution to this problem…

…Shabazz goes on to say “God is with this man.” If you’re interested in hearing the speech Obama gave inside the AME church in Selma, the one Shabazz is commenting on, it was broadcast by C-Span and can be viewed here

The entire article is at Verum Serum where John has posted audio from a radio interview Shabazz gave in May 2008 in which he reflects upon Obama’s visit to Selma.

Update: New book calls out ‘racial agenda of the Obama Justice Department’

President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder face fiery race-based criticisms in a new book about their selective enforcement of civil rights.

In “Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department,” former Department of Justice Civil Rights Division attorney J. Christian Adams describes how racist radicals have hijacked the DOJ and rarely enforce laws when it’s not politically beneficial for them to do so…
