Black Self-Defense is Important, But Ideology is Paramount

Yafeuh Balogon, a leader of the Dallas-based Huey P. Newton Gun Club, which advocates armed Black self-defense, said the club was inspired by the “founding of the Black Panther Party, more than half a century ago. When armed white supremacists tried to stage a show of force in the Black section of Dallas in 2016, “we were able to drive them out,” However, “ideology is more important than the weapons,” said Balogon.
