Disturbing content on New Black Panther's MySpace page

← return to Water Cooler

The Department of Justice recently dropped the conviction of Jerry Jackson member of the “New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense” (NBPP).  The Washington Times  has covered the Black Panther reversal at the Department of Justice revealing,

“Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perelli, No.3 official in the Obama Justice Department, was consulted and ultimately approved a decision in May to reverse course and drop a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party of intimidating voters in Philadelphia during November’s election, according to interviews.”

It all began when Mr. Jackson stood outside a Philadelphia polling area with Malik Zulu Shabazz and another New Black Panther member during the 2008 presidential election.  They later faced charges for intimidating voters on November 4th, 2008.  Appointed to be a poll watcher in 2008 for the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign, Mr. Jackson is also an elected member of Philadelphia’s 14th Ward Democratic Committee.    

The NBPP member has not stayed away from expressing his views on a social media site like MySpace.  Mr. Jackson’s original MySpace site is chock full of disturbing images with explicit racial overtones.  

***Since Friday evening (July 31st) to Saturday morning (August 1st), Mr. Jackson’s MySpace page has changed radically since the posting of this blog.  However, there are screen captures available below from Mr.Jackson’s original MySpace page.  A sample of some of the phrases and images on his MySpace page include:(***Warning the following image links are extremely offensive in nature***)


“F*** Whitey’s Christmas

An image of an execution scene from the cult hit film “Pulp Fiction”

A photo of a man holding a sign saying, “DEPORT WHITE PEOPLE”

A derogatory anti-cop poster titled “BEWARE OF PIG”

An image of Saddam Hussein before his execution and profanity towards the police

A photo of a cop sitting next to a black child in a toy car.  Beneath the image the phrase “Racial Profiling: It Starts Early”

A photoshopped movie poster of the “Bourne Supremacy” is re-worded to say “The Bourne White Supremacy”  A swastika is added to Matt Damon’s cheek, and the scope of his firearm is photoshopped to look as if he is about to shoot a black man.  The “n” word is used to describe who “Matt Damon hates” in this movie poster.  The phrase, “They should have just stayed in Africa” is photoshopped at the top of the image. 

It is hard to believe such web content is coming from an elected party official in Philadelphia, yet Mr. Jackson has been appointed again to be a poll watcher  for the upcoming Democratic Primary in Philadelphia’s municipal election.  Mr. Obama may think a White House “beer summit” will help smooth over racial ills, but his justice department is doing the country no favors when they give  Jerry Jackson and Malik Zulu Shabazz  a free pass.

Update 10:00pm: Mr. Jackson’s MySpace page has been removed.  A cached version is available through the link now.

Update 11:00 pm: description of The Bourne Supremacy poster has been re-worded  to show further detail. 

Update July 31, 2009 10:30 am: The Washington Times Editorial page has come out with new information about the Justice Department’s cover up in the New Black Panther Case, and Washington Times reporter Jerry Seper is writing that lawmakers on the Hill are wanting to take a second look into the panther case.

***Update August 1, 2009 3:00 pm: A new MySpace page has appeared in the google cache of Mr. Jackson’s MySpace page.  Screen captures are available of the original MySpace page at the links within the body of the blog. (h/t Freerepublic.com)
