Two dozen protesters from a gun club named after the founder of the Black Panther Party marched through the streets of South Dallas on Wednesday.
The open-carry rally was organized by the Huey P. Newton Gun Club to promote self-defense and community policing in response to recent police shootings.
“We think that all black people have the right to self defense and self determination,” said Huey Freeman, an organizer. “We believe that we can police ourselves and bring security to our own communities.”
Police monitored the black-clad demonstrators, some of whom had rifles slung over their shoulders. As they walked down MLK Boulevard, many chanted “black power” and “justice for Michael Brown,” the black teenager shot by police in suburban St. Louis.
At one point, the group stopped at Elaine’s Kitchen, and one of the organizers told those who were armed to display their weapons in a “safe, disciplined manner.”
Freeman said they planned to patronize several South Dallas businesses to keep their money in the community and teach their neighbors about their “right to self-defense.”
The march came to a peaceful end about 90 minutes after it began at a car wash at Malcolm X Boulevard and Marburg Street.

1. There was no homosexuality in Africa before Europeans came.
3. We did not know (or worship) God before the arrival of Europeans.
4. Colonialism/missionaries forced women’s “liberation” on us.
5. We had no functioning governments prior to the arrival of Europeans (or Arabs as well really)
6. Any African person not born in Africa is not a true African/Black person because their culture does not match your learned colonized mentality values.
Stop it. Please.

Women are CONSTANTLY being treated as nothing but props and eye candy in music videos. Did you guys forget Burred Lines? Or Talk Dirty to me?
If you can’t handle a guy getting the same treatment, then fucking leave.
Update, 4:30 p.m.: The ACLU, responding to BuzzFeed's Chris Geidner on Twitter, says that the officer involved in the incident described above has been removed from duty following a public ACLU complaint.
this is great and all but lets observe the fact that the moment a WHITE journalist is threatened, action is taken…while Michael Brown’s murderer still walks freely and the police officers threatening the lives of black people/hitting them with tear gas and rubber bullets are still on the clock
the media being threatened is the best thing that could have happened to white America because now they can stop caring about the majority Black citizens of Ferguson and start focusing on the white people being hurt
