Discrimination In The Black Panthers

Satisfactory Essays
The Black Panthers were now fighting capitalism not only racial discrimination. One of the issues addressed in the Ten Point Program was to end police brutality out in their communities. They not only wanted freedom, but they wanted their society to be changed. They wanted a better education, job opportunities, housing, and civil rights. They fought and struggled for human rights. This organization realized that Martin Luther King’s strategy of non-violence wouldn’t get far out, so the Black Panthers were disposed to use violence to ultimately get to what they desired.
