This paper examines the views of two ordinary people from the 1960s on the Black Panthers. It examines one who is white and one who is black and why they have the feelings they do in regards to the Black Panther Party. The individuals are from similar economic and geographic backgrounds, being that they both came from middle-class families and were from the San Francisco Bay area.
From the Paper:"The Black Panther Party undeniably reeked fear in the hearts of many whites, because they saw it, and the media portrayed it, as a type of "Black Rage," in which African-Americans across the country were coming together "...seeking redemption for years of slavery" (Humphery Interviewee). Even though it is hard to distinguish exactly what that statement means, it is important to note that many whites viewed Black Power from this sort of Black Rage viewpoint or angle, in which "African-Americans were not seeking equality, but redemption for years of slavery"".
