Reply to "British Black Panthers"

How many emoticons can one person put in a post? To answer the above question. Yes Huey died in 1989. What I presume they meant was by the end of the 70s the leadership of the Panthers was not what it had been. The original earlier carnation did achieve a lot. The whole thing died in the mid 70s when that leadership was killed, put in prison or fled abroad. By 1982 it was officially dead, but it was dying from the early 70s onwards.
 
They achieved a lot. To overthrow 500 years of oppression won't take 10 years. And whilst the economic system stays the same most of the problems will remain.  
 
I notice you don't posit any remedies yourself? They at least did something. They gave pride to some who never felt it previously.
