Don’t Buy this Hot Sauce

By Debbie Schlussel
The “former” Black Panthers are putting out a new product: hot sauce, called “Burn Baby Burn: A Taste of the Sixties Revolutionary Hot Sauce.” We’ve already gotten a “taste of the Sixties” and it’s not very appealing to the palate or anything else. Here’s a marketing tip: Get a shorter name . . . and stop attacking capitalism and White people.
The Black Panthers killed cops and many, like H. Rap Brown a/k/a Khalid Abdullah Al-Amin (in prison for killing cops, but, surprise, defended by the Council on American Islamic Relations), have embraced radical Islam. They support the freeing of all Black criminals from prison and free healthcare for Blacks only, funded by all of us White “oppressors”. Not exactly reasons to buy their product and support their Huey P. Newton Foundation. Here are ten more reasons to ignore, baby, ignore “Burn Baby Burn” hot sauce, if it ever reaches the shelves of your local super-market.
It gets worse. The Black Panthers are hoping the name of the sauce evokes memories of the 1965 Watts Riots in Los Angeles. But more than 30 people died there, at least 1,000 were wounded, and hundreds of buildings burnt to mere ashes–all because of the pro-violence Black Panthers. Hot Sauce to poke fun at these people’s deaths? What’s next? Auschwitz orange juice and 9/11 butter?

I LOVE this hot sauce. Hope I can still find it.
Also, I’m white and not offended by the black panthers in the least. Institutionalize racism is real Deb, that should offend your white-is-right sensibilities. Right is equality and some people have to fight for theirs. Black panthers were not a violent organization, the violent members do not represent the whole.

I am white and this is the most racist article i have read in a long time. I love their hot sauce and the black panther movement. You’re a horrible writer and I hope you don’t give up your day job for this. The article wreaks of white priveledge. I’ll put this in plain terms I think you are a stupid bitch that wants jim crow laws back.
