Black Panthers say name has been stolen

The original Panthers, including Bobby Seale and David Hilliard, have filed suit against the New Black Panthers for stealing their name and desmirching it with anti-Semitic  and racist comments.

But just because the Panthers are graying, said the 65-year-old Seale, who is recovering from heart bypass surgery, doesn’t mean they should watch helplessly as their reputation is threatened by “racist” usurpers calling themselves the “New Black Panther Party.”

 “By using the Panther logo, which is our brand name,” complained former Panther chief-of-staff David Hilliard, “this other group is getting instant validation for its racial hatred and anti-Semitism.”
