Some shocking footage emerged at an alleged “black power” rally in Tulsa over the weekend. Hundreds of black men and women dressed in black gathered there for the National Black Power Convention over the weekend, listening to speakers discuss black nationalism and white supremacy. An armed march through the city was also staged to nearly coincide with the 100th anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. Members of the New Black Panther Party participated in the march.
Some of the videos that have been circulating on social media from the event are extremely disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised. A transcript of one of the speeches follows the clip.

We’re pushing death to white supremacy, death to capitalism, death to imperialism, and death to fascism. We’re pushing an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a head for a head, and a life for a life. White supremacists bust us upside the head and drug us over here to pick cotton, so they can get rich, so they can get wealthy, but I would like to tell you, even though you are not in Africa, Africa was born in you. Africa was born in you! This is a powerful historical event, we must not let it stop right there. We must push deeply into the so-called black-on-black violence, the community violence, the fear, the self-hatred, which pits us to fight each other, which pits us to gang bang. We must go into our hood. Not outside the hood — the real hood — [unintelligable] and teach those Bloods, teach those Crips, that they start a revolution there. You must understand that. They put us through vicious suffering, vicious oppression. And when we defend ourself, once they die, we must understand that we can never give them the pain that they gave us. Once they are buried, we must bury them, dig them up, and kill them again. Bury ’em, dig ’em up, and kill ’em again.
Another speaker with a megaphone said, “When that time’s comin’ to ‘rat-a-tat-tat, then black people will kill everything white in sight because of all what you’ve done to us, all of what you’ve done in the 6,000-year span and killing 600 million of us and 408 years in particular, and a 150 million in the past.”
