Caldwell, Earl. "Young White Army Rallies to Newton."
New York Times, August 7, 1970, p. 14.
When Black Panther co-founder Huey Newton was freed from prison, he announced
the planned activities of the Party. Newton stated that members of the Black Panther Party
would send "an undisclosed number of troops" to fight for the North Vietnamese
against the United States. "America has many domestic problems here today, but yet
they find time to meddle in everyone else's business, so if they find time to meddle in
other people's business, we'll find time to try to get them out of other people's
business," Newton said. But as the article pointed out, the crowd that greeted
Newton upon his release was mostly white, (the Black Panther Party itself being more
or less decimated in the two years that Newton was in prison).
