BPPSD – Burn Baby Burn


“OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – Former Black Panthers are hoping the phrase “Burn Baby Burn” will help their non-profit organization market a new product – hot sauce.

The Huey P. Newton Foundation, named for the co-founder of the 1960s militant group, is seeking to trademark the phrase that for many brings to mind the racially charged 1965 Watts Riots in Los Angeles that left more than 30 people dead, at least 1,000 wounded and hundreds of buildings in ashes.”

Made me chuckle.

OK it’s a far cry from stuff like this, this, and this, but fair play – the legacy of the Panthers does need to be preserved, both from historians and from people who reckon they are carrying on the tradition but are actually reactionary black nationalists (as was the case recently with a group trying to start in London).
