Carol Swain, the redoubtable African American law professor at Vanderbilt points out an interesting nugget about the New Black Panther white voter disenfranchisement scandal.Â Swain notes that the $outhern Poverty Law Center lists the New Black Panther Party as a hate group.
One would think that when the US Commission on Civil Rightsâ€”which sheâ€™s a member ofâ€”were trying to get the Justice Department to take steps to curb voter disenfranchisement by one of their designated Hate Groups, the $PLC might have a few words to say, but according to Swain,
“The SPLC has been mum on the issueâ€¦ what is most shocking is that the SPLC has spent far more resources hounding conservative organizations, such as the Center for Immigration Studies, and prominent citizens like CNN`s award-winning anchor Lou Dobbs, than it has protecting the civil rights of American voters, which includes white people as well as black.”
Swain concludes, â€śRather than monitoring hate groups, the Southern Poverty Law Center has become one.â€ť
Unlike Swain, I am not particularly shocked that the $PLC is silent on Panther-Gate.Â The only reason why they list groups like the New Black Panthers as hate groups is to create a faĂ§ade that they are not merely an anti-white left wing advocacy radical group, rather a non-partisan organization opposed to “hate” from all sides.
If they were really going to give equal time for anti-white racists, they`re need to divert some of their fund raising budget into fighting La Raza and the NAACP.
