"the Black Panthers did not hate whites. They did not seek armed revolution (although some of their most high-profile leaders were drug dealers and murderers)." What??!! Sorry Ann, my Dad was a college professor in the Sixties, a track coach and absolutely not racist, yet when the social censure committee he chaired voted to expel a violent black student we got to enjoy several weeks of terror as they threatened to fire bomb our house and kill my Dad. All this against a man who recruited fine minority athletes, who stood up to restaurant owners who refused to serve black members of the team and who fought for equal rights. Many hated whites solely for the color of our skin.
