Black Panther William Johnson, who joined the movement when he was 19 years old, posted the following message on his FB page: 

As an original member of the Black Panther Party I thank Beyonce for her courage to make a statement on National TV. I am sure she understood the backlash that would follow her performance @ the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl, so on behalf of The National Alumni Association of the Black Panther Party we thank you & salute you.
Although of immigrant stock
I descend from the Dickensian Dodger
Hustle as the Costermonger once did on the same East End streets
I too wanted and deserve more – “MORE”?
A fly pitcher, eyes peeled working on the Run-Out
I’ll pay you little, nick all you can, if I catch I’ll break your hands
The stinking funkum we punted on Oxford Street
The Jekyll perfume sold for not it’s worth
The profit spunked on the geegees               
“Sorry son I’ll pay ya t’mora”
My journey here was through the London streets
I just kept falling uphill

The 3 Kings 1973 – I turned on the TV and by mistake switched to the Old Grey Whistle Test, it was really not my kind of music show, but within two seconds I was mesmerised by a heavy reggae tune, “Stir It Up”, I was transfixed to the screen. There were these three extremely cool stylish guys with a militant vibe almost standing still but exuding so much energy that they were filling the room. Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, and Bob Marley: “The Wailers”. My second spiritual awakening.

In 1978 I wrote on the back:
Without bloodshed there will be no pain
Without pain there will be no struggle
Without struggle there will be no conflict
Without conflict there will be no revolution 
Without revolution there will be no change
Without change there will be no progression

Daryush 'Roosh V' Valizadeh - The leader of a self-described neo-masculinist movement has cancelled a series of meetings planned for cities worldwide on Saturday because he “can no longer guarantee the safety or privacy of the men who want to attend”...

I must admit I am slightly disappointed at the cancellation of the "Pro-Rape" rally in London, I had some curiosities. I wished to ask him the following questions >

"No means no until it means yes" - How far are you willing to go to get her to say Yes…?

1) If the woman resists, is violence condoned?
2) Does this also include your mother or family members?
3) Was your conception the result of rape?
4) What are the boundaries, can one rape one’s house cleaner?
5) Does this apply to any time of the day?
6) Does this also apply to men; if you enter my home can I fuck you?
7) Is contraception necessary?
8) Is one responsible for any occurring pregnancies?
9) What is the age limit?
10) Do you get pleasure from raping and abusing woman?
