40. NBP seem to be led by ex-Nation of Islam people, and their ideology is supposedly Ron karenga's --

 

the guy who invented kwansa and used to head the Panther's rivals, US. I didn't realize it, but Karenga's relationship with NOI apparently preceded the formation of US.

But I swear I read about the NBP years ago and at that time, the son of a famous Panther was part of it -- maybe Geronimo Pratt's son? I can't remember, but I remember having the impression the group was legit at the time and no impression it had anything to do with NOI.

When former Nation of Islam (NOI) minister Khalid Abdul Muhammad became the national chairman of the NBPP from the late 1990s until his death in 2001, the group attracted many breakaway members of the NOI. The NBPP is currently led by Malik Zulu Shabazz; it upholds Khalid Abdul Muhammad as the de facto father of the movement.

Although the NBPP says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and "revolution" as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, it promotes the Kawaida theory of Maulana Karenga, which includes black unity, collective action, and cooperative economics.[9] The NBPP says it fights the oppression of black and brown people and that its members are on top of current issues facing black communities across the world. Also, it notes that not all its members are members of the Nation of Islam, though the group acknowledges universal "spirituality" practices within the organization.[10]
