Black Panther Questions

1) Why do you think Huey P. Newton, the founder of the Black Panther Party and author of the "Ten Point Program", cites statements from the declaration of Independence even if most of the signers were slave owners?

2) In the Black Panther Comic book, who is Achebe and who is he similar to in the real world?

3) Name some of the things that T'Challa does that are consistent with the Ten-Point Program.

In reference to the question, "Why do you think Huey P. Newton, the founder of the Black Panther Party and author of the "Ten Point Program", cites statements from the declaration of Independence even if most of the signers were slave owners?"

I believe that regardless of the source, one should take adavantage of any benefit available to further ones goals. In this case, those that signed the Declaration of Independence, while slaveowners, by signing this document empowered those that they themselves have taken advantage of. The Declaration, being such a powerful document, allows those that have the desire to change their situation to do so by using it to their advantage. I applaud the Newton for making due with the resources available him in order to legitimize the the Black Panthers.
