Did the Black Panthers know about 9/11 in advance?
As Michelle Malkin points out, Malik Shabazz, the head of the New Black Panther Party, is an overt racist. One of the comically conspiratorial charges he levels against Jews, is that the Jewish population represents 10% of the community, therefore 10% of the deaths on 9/11 should have been Jews. “They got their people out,” this mental giant charged.
This fails for several reasons. First, there were between 270 and 400 Jews who died in the World Trade Center. This is likely more than 10%. Second, terror attacks do not kill at random, they kill those in and around the place of the attack at the time of the attack. Only a truly random vector would provide a death toll that matched the population demographics.
Finally, and most idiotic, the demographics of New York City show that 27% of the population is Black, yet only 7% of those who died were Black. So, Malik Shabazz, what did the New Black Panther Party know about the terrorist attacks, and when did it know it?
