2. the Black Panther Party ------黑豹党
In October of 1966, in Oakland California, Huey Newton and Bobby Seale founded the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense8. The Panthers practiced militant9 self-defense of minority communities against the U.S. government, and fought to establish revolutionary socialism through mass organizing and community based programs. The party was one of the first organizations in U.S. history to militantly10 struggle for ethnic11 minority and working class emancipation12 — a party whose agenda was the revolutionary establishment of real economic, social, and political equality across gender13 and color lines.

The New Black Panther Party for Self Defense takes its name from the original Black Panther Party. The original Panthers combined militant black nationalism with Marxism and advocated black empowerment and self-defense, often through confrontation14. By 1969, the group had an estimated 5,000 members spread throughout 20 chapters around the country. In the early 1970s, however, the group lost momentum15 and most of its support due to internal disputes, violent clashes with police and infiltration16 by law enforcement agencies. Despite the collapse17, the group's mystique continued to influence radicals18, and by the early 1990s a new generation of militant activists19 began to model themselves after the original Panthers.
