Barbequeing With A Black Panther
* Comments(2)

This strikes me as weird–or maybe sad or surreal–I don’t really know. It’s not that the founding member of the Black Panther Party shouldn’t barbeque, it’s just kind of unexpected that’s all. How you gonna fight the man when you’re hawkin’ a barbeque book? That ain’t no revolution, brutha!

Lest someone think I kid–here’s his website (Get it? Barbeque-Bobbyque–Ha Ha.) There’s a fine collection of books for sale on his website: –Seize The Time – The Story of The Black Panther Party and Huey P. Newton –A Lonely Rage – The Autobiography of Bobby Seale –MIDNIGHT MORNING MUSINGS – poems By An American African: Dr. Regina Jennings AND –Barbeque’n With Bobby Seale Reminds me of that Sesame Street song…One of these things does not belong here, one of these things is not the same… Bobby has definitely made barbeque’n political again (the way it was meant to be) with his…

BARBEQUE BILL OF RIGHTS WHEN IN THE COURSE OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT it becomes necessary for us, the citizens of the earth, to creatively improve the culinary art of barbe-que’n in our opposition to the overly commercialized bondage of "cue-be-rab" (barbecuing backwards); and to assume, within the realm of palatable biological reactions to which the laws of nature and nature’s God entitle us, a decent respect for all the billions of human taste buds and savory barbeque desires; we the people declare a basic barbeque bill of rights which impels us to help halt, eradicate, and ultimately stamp out "cue-be-rab!"

…continue on the site (Seriously-You can’t make this stuff up.) But you gotta give Bobby props. On he lays it down:

"In OUR future thinking & practices: No racism ALLOWED! No idiotic male chauvinism nor bigoted discrimination ALLOWED! No ideological nor religious motivated terroristic stupidity ALLOWED! No xenophobic isolationism, dumb criminality, abusive exploitation or violence against women and children, nor avaricious global exploitation of humanity ………ALLOWED! "All Power To All The People!" Righteous down home peoples power is what I advocated in the sixties, and what I say today. That is, "…toward a future world of cooperational humanism!" Beyond the myopic notions and strict doctrinaire ideologies of past "politburo" state control command economy socialism. More important let’s get beyond the present extremist practices of avaricious racist corporate monopoly globalizing capitalism having evolved a system which concentrates 90% of all the political-economic power in to the hands of the one percent cooperate money-rich around this OUR earth. Democracy? HOW ABOUT Greater constitutional "direct" democracy? i.e. greater peoples’ decision making participatory Community Control democracy? This form has a greater three dimensional democratic character. A true peoples’ democratic synthesis are ideas to begin to get creative with. "All power to all the people," was my BPP sixties creative protest demand. "

DAMN! Go Man Go! I guess ole’ Bobby hasn’t lost his fire, he’s just keeping it real…Straight Loc’d Out Barbeque Style – G

    Elondria and I saw Bobby Seale speak about ten years ago. As we were leaving, I asked her what she thought, “I can’t believe he spent so much time talking about a cookbook. What a ‘revolutionary’.”

    Down with the man, pass the pork chops.

    I guess the job title “revolutionary” doesn’t pay that way these days. I hear they’re hiring in Venezuela though.

    Just goes to show you, you should always have a back-up skill should times get tough. Your guidance counselor was right.
