The New Black Panther Party announced on Tuesday that they planned to carry guns at next week’s Republican Party convention, in a sign of the racial tension that is roiling the nation as President Barack Obama spoke in Dallas, to pay tribute to five white police killed by a black gunman.

The NBPP has  surged to the forefront of America’s consciousness following the killing of two black men by police and the retaliatory murder of five white policemen in the space of three days last week.

Formed in Dallas, Texas in 1989, it is not an official successor to the Black Panther Party of the 1960s, but bears the same ideology.

Will ‘Trayvon Martin’ Ignite Race Wars?

It takes just one spark to ignite a forest fire. The same can often be said for society-wide destruction and violence. In 1914, for example, Germany used the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand as an excuse to plunge the entire world into war. No one expected it at the time. There had been 40 years of relative peace in Western Europe. And yet, one isolated event in Sarajevo set off a devastating chain reaction that brought the whole world to its knees. Austria declared war on Serbia. Russia mobilized in support of the Serbs and declared war on Austria. Germany declared war on Russia—then France. And on and on it went.

In the case of the raging inferno prophesied to devour America’s biggest cities before Christ’s return, could the shooting death of Trayvon Martin be the spark that leads to chaos and anarchy on the streets of America?

Louis Farrakhan has promised retaliation. The New Black Panther Party offered a $10,000 bounty for the shooter, George Zimmerman. Black Panthers also distributed a “Wanted: Dead or Alive” poster for Zimmerman. Movie director Spike Lee re-tweeted Zimmerman’s home address to 250,000 followers. (It turned out to be the wrong address.) And the New York Times, Reuters and other news agencies even coined a new phrase to fabricate the white-on-black narrative that is central to the liberal agenda. Zimmerman isn’t Hispanic. He’s now a white Hispanic.

Even President Obama weighed in on the controversy by stressing the racial component to the story: “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” the president said.

The Justice Department, meanwhile, is assiduously searching for evidence of Zimmerman being a racist in the hope that it can charge him for a hate crime.
