๐Ÿ“š Many young white people from the middle class have dropped out of the traditional way of life, while young black people have not. This is because white individuals have had access to education and material possessions, leading them to see the flaws in the American system and choose not to participate. In contrast, black people, who have not had the same opportunities, are still striving for change and are not willing to drop out of the struggle for freedom.

๐Ÿ”’ The Black Panther Party has issued a mandate to protect their community from the racist police force. They believe that if the police continue to be aggressive and inflict brutality upon them, they have the right to defend themselves.
