Why did the Panthers need the guns?
Watching the video about the Black Panthers on Wednesday, why do you think they chose to carry firearms if their ultimate goal was to promote equal constitutional rights for all African Americans? Even though they're an extremist group, they chose to promote violence rather than stop it. As President Kennedy mentioned in the video, "Violence only breeds more violence."
Also, why do you think they thought that they felt that they needed to carry those wepons in spite the fact that it was legal at the time?
