This is the Black Panthers 10-point program. I was wondering if anybody had any points on how these points are as a group, or individualy still relevant today. The reason why is because I'm writing a research paper on how it could help improve today's society and many of you seem to have very intelligent views and posts. All responses are welcome. PEACE 1) We want freedom. We want power to determine the destiny of our Black Community. 2) We want full employment for our people. 3) We want an end to the robbery by the capitalists of our Black Community. 4) We want decent housing, fit for shelter of human beings. 5) We want education for our people that exposes the true nature of this decadent American society. We want education that teaches us our true history and our role in present day society. 6) We want all Black men to be exempt from military service. 7) We want an immediate end to POLICE BRUTALITY and MURDER of Black people. We want freedom for all Black men held in federal, state, county and city prisons and jails. 9) We want all Black people when brought to trial to be tried in court by a jury of their peer group or people from their Black communities, as defined by the Constitution of the United States. 10) We want land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace. And as our major political objective, a United Nations-supervised plebiscite to be held throughout the Black colony in which only Black colonial subjects will be allowed to participate, for the purpose of determining the will of Black people as to their national destiny.
