Clarence Mason Weaver was once so filled with hatred toward white people in America that he broke up with a girlfriend who had a white dog. In an exclusive video interview, the former Black Panther from Berkeley shares his views of America’s first black president and how the nation can heal its racial divide.
Weaver served his country in Vietnam, working as a pipe fitter in the Navy. It was an incident on August 11, 1971 that changed his life forever: A white racist tried to kill him just because of his skin color.
Retelling a riveting transformational story, Weaver explains how even in the midst of running with radical U.S. haters, he realized “he loved America” and only wanted a chance to compete fairly in the country.
Today, when asked what he thinks of the emergence of Black Lives Matter, he passionately says “it really means black lies matter.” He explains that this group believes in white superiority since they demand white society give them concessions out of guilt. Mason says, “What happened to you white folks? Where are the Vikings? You guys are cowards!”
As to his views on the first black president, Weaver says, “Barack Obama hates America.”
“His job is to divide by differences and manage our differences,” he says. “He has done nothing but drive us apart. [He] hates America.” Weaver then adds, “It doesn’t matter what color the pimp, the drug dealer, the con artist is.”
In this 31-minute video interview, Weaver explains that God helped him realize that “anger was much heavier than a ton and a half of steel,” which altered his physical and emotional life in 1971.
“What would happen in black America if we forgave, real or imagined, the wrongs that we have?” he asks. “As a Swahili-speaking, black history-studying, militant, Black Panther-hanging out man. As a black man, wearing my dashiki and my black beret,” he notes. “What would happen is healing, progress, and success with family reunification.”
Since he left liberalism and became so vocal, Weaver has been called all the epithets that black conservatives incur. Weaver explains why black conservatives are so maligned and hated by those he says are “running today’s plantations” with destructive liberal policies. Liberalism, he says, “destroys people, like a drug dealer, a pimp who manages you and wants to keep you down. Liberalism is slavery, always has been and always will be.”
As for how to change other people’s minds, he warns, “some have a vested interest in staying stupid.” Those who won’t hear or listen “have the right to be stupid.”
